Pardon my hand-wringing, but I have been in a few conversations where we have noted all the gaffes, missteps, and lost opportunities by Romney and his campaign. Romney is entering Gerry Ford territory. With all the baggage Romney is toting I wonder what would happen if Romney lost the nomination at the convention and a brokered candidate came to the rescue. What challenges would Obama face if Romney lost the nomination?
Join me below the orange tribute to Art Nouveau for this little thought experiment and poll?
Is it possible for Romney to lose the Nomination of the GOP party?
Romney has been defined. He has been painted into a corner with his own comments. The polls are not in his favor. The money does not appear to be working.
The VP has not been named. Would a Portman, Ayotte or Ryan want to be associated with the Romney campaignn and a possible humiliating loss?
Would a Portman, Ryan, or Rubio prefer to ride to the rescue and become the brokered nominee who saves the party, unites the factions and possibly wins the presidency?
Maybe Jeb Bush or Chris Christie would be the party savior?
How would a new nominee be defined in time for the Nov. election?
If you have answers please inform me. (Knocking on wood that Romney is the Nominee.)
