It appears that there is going to be a very close fight between Republicanand President in the upcoming presidential election. The election is going to be held next month and preparations for it are in full swing. Both the candidates are trying their best to woo voters by announcing policy statements on different issues. Supporters and activists of both the parties are also doing their best to highlight positive features of their respective candidates. According to media reports, millions of dollars are also being spent on campaigns in media. Every issue is being discussed and debated on different forums by both the candidates to get the support of voters.
According to a latest survey carried out by Rasmussen, Romney has the support of 49 percent of voters nationwide, while President Obama has clinched the support of 47 percent voters. It means that Romney stands 2 percent ahead of the president. A number of discerning observers based here in New York City opine that the popularity of Romney will increase from here. Romney can impress voters using his persuasive speeches and detailed policy plans on different issues. They also opine that Romney, being a seasoned businessman, also has the abilities to turn the teetering economy of the country around.
The results of the poll are based on nightly interviews. Two percent of the surveyed prefer some other candidate, while 2 percent still remain indecisive on whom they should vote for in the upcoming election. However, it is difficult to predict the final result of the election on the basis of the poll, as President Obama still holds a strong grip on voters in a number of states. The recent drop to 7.8 percent in the unemployment rate has also helped Obama boost his credibility and popularity, especially among the young voters. Observers opine that with the recent reduction in the unemployment rate, Romney has actually been robbed of a strong issue to play politics on.
Romney is all set to give a foreign policy speech on Monday, as he believes that highlighting failures of the Obama administration on foreign policy front can clinch the support of the public. So far, Romney’s stance on Iran’s nuclear program and unwavering support for Israel has won laurels for him. If he continues to relaying support for Israel’s stance against Iran’s nuclear program, he can easily clinch votes of the Jewish community in the U.S.
