Mitt Romney is behind on many demographics

According to the latest polls, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is catching up with incumbent President Barack Obama. This has created a lot of excitement around the Romney camp, although many experts warn that his rise in the polls can be misleading. Basically, what the expert are saying is that Romney’s rise in the polls is due to the fact that he has finally been identified as the go-to man on the Republican presidential candidate pack. However, experts also say that when you break down the polls into the different demographics, Mitt Romney is only doing well with white males between the ages of 45 -60. Every other demographic out there appears to be a challenge for Romney and he needs to close the gap on these demographics if he is to win the presidential race.

Possible running mates being explored

While the Romney camp is trying to down play the significance of the deficit that Mitt Romney is running across a broad spectrum of demographics, his top level advisors know that if he doesn’t close the gap on the majority of these, Romney is in a lot of trouble. As the Romney camp attempts to address their demographics nightmare, a few names have come up for possible vice presidential candidates that could help Romney win over more voters.

Some of the names that have been mentioned by pundits and well-wishers are:

1) Sen. Marco Rubio- a Hispanic from Florida. With him Romney hopes to fool Hispanics into voting for him, and also hopes to win Florida, which is an important swing state. Chances are that Latinos will not fall for it since Rubio is an ally of the Tea Party and the Tea Party is a Latino's worse enemy.

2) Paul Ryan- the Tea Party loves him, but who loves the Tea Party? Besides, Romney has the white males between the ages of 45-60 nailed down already.

3) Allen West- he is a congressman from Florida, so he could help win this important swing state; the Tea Party loves him and… that’s it. If the Romney camp was planning on using him to seduce blacks into voting for him, well, good luck with that!

The list goes on with a lot of possible candidates who can win over one demographic here and there, but not one of them appears to have enough of a broad appeal to compensate for Romney’s lack of luster.

Only Chiqui the Chihuahua can close the gap across multiple demographics

But wait! There is one vice presidential contender that could perhaps help Mitt Romney win over a few demographics that will be important for him to win in November. This candidate is Chiqui the Chihuahua. Chiqui is a female, which will give Romney a much needed push among female voters. She is of Mexican ancestry which will help Romney win over the Hispanics that have been insulted by the Republicans over the course of the years. Chiqui is cute as a button and has tons of charisma, and this is something that will give Romney a much needed help. Chiqui is an independent and lives in Florida which is a state that Mitt Romney must win; and get this, she is a dog! You heard right, she is a dog, and we all know how poorly Romney is doing with dog lovers on both sides of the aisle.

So Chiqui the Chihuahua appears to be the desperate help that Mitt Romney needs to move his campaign in the right direction. The only problem Chiqui has is that she has also been brought up with a silver spoon. However, when she is in the public eye wearing her pink “I am a Diva” dress, the crowd seems to go wild for her. So the Romney camp can’t go wrong with Chiqui.

Chiqui the Chihuahua has one demand

Chiqui is thrilled to hear that Romney is interested in her as a running mate. Her entire life she has had her heart set on world domination, and she sees the vice presidency as a step closer to what she has been trying to achieve all her life. She said “I am only three pounds, but I am a warrior princess. Together with John McCain at my side I will invade every country out there, and I will conquer the world! There is nothing like the smell of gun powder after a big battle, nothing” “There is only one request I have” she said to me as she looked me in the eye, “I will not ride on the roof of any moving vehicle. That is non-negotiable.”
