Will Mitt Romney get the GOP presidential candidacy? A commentary

Mitt Romney’s consistent leads over his 3 rivals in the GOP presidential nomination candidate cause the barometric needle to point to the number of convention delegates and winning votes on his favor. When such leads will be maintained under his name until the Republican National Convention, so be it. Republican voters will prefer Romney more than any of the three. He will be the GOP candidate to beat President Barack Obama.

Romney himself will do his sortie in the southern United States this weekend according to Ros Krasny. Likewise, Romney’s son “Matt is playing the “really, really away” game as he looks to prop up his dad’s support in the Northern Mariana Islands and Guam, which hold their caucuses on Saturday. Romney is truly leaving no delegate unturned in his quest for the magic 1,144 needed to clinch his party’s nomination” as quoted from Krasny’s report.

Krasny further reported that, “Guam’s governor, Eddie Calvo, has endorsed Romney, which is likely to help the former Massachusetts governor lock up most of the island’s nine delegates. The Northern Mariana Islands also have nine delegates up for grabs”.

It is really “first come first serve basis that counts”. Romney through his son Matt is the first to go island to island hopping at the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The islander Americans will always appreciate whoever will go to them first. Romney will get the advantage.

The Honorable Governor of Guam said, “He’s a business guy, so he understands how federal regulations can really hamper economic growth. When I told him about all these different federal regulations that make no sense for an isolated island like ours, he got it. He understands. … He didn’t have to call. He didn’t even have to send his son here. But, he’s going out of his way to let us know that we count as well,” Calvo said as quoted from Krasny’s report.

Undoubtedly, shelling out what Governor Calvo said, it will be landslide oceanic votes for Romney. The “oceanic votes” will increase Romney’s edge over any of his rivals. Let it be noted that there are 54,000 people scattered on 15 islands in the Northern Marianas situated in the Pacific Ocean between the Philippines and Hawaii.

Guam is located slightly southwest of the Northern Marianas. It is an unincorporated U.S territory with a population of 159,000. It derives its economy from the U.S. military and tourism that caters to the needs of Japanese tourists who enjoy the secluded its beaches. They are also attracted by the Las Vegas-style shows and the replica of the Statue of Liberty.

Romney needs to speak clearer and concentrates on the articulation of his platforms. He must keep the momentums of his leads and makes his pacing faster but surer. He must increase the number of signified delegates in his rooster from now on till the day of party national convention. Then, he will be the bet to beat his rivals and the candidate to squarely face Barack Obama on November 06, 2012. The Republican voters can make this to happen, if they will?
