Mitt Romney’s 2016 presidential campaign is already the talk of the town within Republican circles, but now Ann Romney has apparently put her foot down, saying he’ll have to run as the “first divorced Mormon” if he goes against her wishes.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, even as President Obama’s approval rating as President of the United States continues to dip, it’s said that Romney is doing well in the polls. One of the closet GOP contenders is Jeb Bush, who believes the Bush dynasty deserves another U.S. President in its history. Even if Hillary Clinton attempts to make a run, W. believes Jeb would win.
If Mitt Romney does run again, then Karl Rove says he’ll need to pull a Ronald Reagan by proving that he’s changed in the last several years.
“He certainly has a shot. He was the Republican nominee in 2012, so he’s got a lot of advocates and followers,” Rove told Fox News.
“He’s going to have to say, ‘Look. I get why I lost last time around, and I’m making changes that will make you feel that I’m going to be a better candidate.’ Ronald Reagan had to do it between 1976 and 1980. In 1976, his campaign was focused on knocking down Henry Kissinger and his foreign policy. By 1980, it was the optimistic sunny Reagan talking about Kemp-Roth tax cuts.”
Still, none of that will matter if Ann Romney won’t give her stamp of approval on Mitt’s 2016 plans.
“A very prominent conservative Republican consultant called me last night and said that he spoke to Ann Romney over the weekend and Ann said if Mitt runs, he will run as the first divorced Mormon candidate for the president of the United States,” Zogby said, according to NewsMax.
“She is sending out the word at least privately that he’s not running. We got two interesting developments here – whether he runs or he doesn’t run.”
Hillary Clinton has not yet official declared her candidacy for the Democratic side, but the biggest issue according to Zogby is that both Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney may “cannibalize each other in terms of their base. That is something that may have to be resolved well before one year from today.” Zogby’s 2016 predictions also claims that foreign policy will play a large part in influencing voter’s minds.
“You’ll have two different worldviews… The Democratic worldview is much more multi-polar and working in conjunction with allies, although it’s always hard to know precisely where Hillary Clinton stands on anything.”
On the Republican side, Zogby believes a contest will be held between isolationists and neo-conservatives who want America to play a large role in influencing world events.
