Sneak Peek: Gov. Mitt Romney Tells Bill Hemmer His Biggest Selling Point in 2012 Campaign
Yesterday, Bill Hemmer had a chance speak to presidential candidate Mitt Romney. During the interview, airing on Wednesday and Thursday at 9a ET, they discussed what Romney considers his best selling point for voters in the 2012 election. Romney said, “I can make the economy better. I can get more jobs for America. I can make competition between employers for jobs and wages. I understand how the economy works. The president wants to make this a personal attack campaign; he’s going after me as an individual. Look, I’m an American, I love this country. I have experience in the economy that’s going to help me get good jobs for Americans so we can be secure again.”
Stephen Hayes thinks this is what voters are going to want to hear because they are worried about the economy. He said of Romney that “he’s speaking to those voters right now, and trying to make his pitch that because he worked in the private sector, because he has business experience, he’s going to be the best one to usher in this new era of American prosperity.”
The latest Fox News Poll shows Mitt Romney with a five percent lead over President Obama. Hayes thinks that five percent could be the ultimate decision in who will lead for the next four years and went on to say that Romney should still continue to try to increase his lead over Obama for November.
Hayes said, “I think what [Romney] is trying to do is reach out to the voters, including those independents we talked about, who feel that America is slipping away.”
