Despite the polls showing a negative picture, Romney is positive that he is going to win. He rejects the idea that he has failed to connect to voters.
During an interview with NBC News’ Peter Alexander, Romney said that although Obama might be leading in a couple of states, this doesn’t mean he can beat him this election season. "We're going to win. There is no question in my mind. We're going to win," Romney told NBC on Monday in Colorado, where he's campaigning.
"I'm very pleased with the fact that we have a campaign that is taking our message to the people across America and look, we're going to win. There is no question in my mind. We're going to win.The polls go up, polls go down. There've been some weeks I am ahead, some weeks I am behind. You know, all these states that voted forthe last time, right now the majority of people in those states are saying that they don't want to vote for Barack Obama. My job is to make sure they understand what I stand for, they understand the path forward I would take. If I do that well, I'll be elected president, and I expect to do it well."
Romney said he and Obama stand on separate ends of the same spectrum. He highlighted Obama’s comment on the Middle East violence when he called the series of events as “bumps in the road," saying that he has different views than Obama on foreign policy as well as domestic policy. He also said that at a time when America should be influencing the events in countries like Syria, Egypt, Libya and Pakistan, it appears to be at "the mercy of the event."
“There are extraordinary events going on in the Middle East and considering those events either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps in the road shows a person who has a very different perspective about world affairs and the perspective I have,” Romney said. “I think this is a time for American to exert leadership and this is not something that we are doing in the Middle East.”
Romney said despite of what the polls show today, he’s confident that before the election, the Americans will conclude that they do not want the next four years to be like the last four years of their lives.
