On 'Meet the Press,' Mitt and Ann Romney opened up about their religion. Mrs. Romney likens the possibility that her husband could be the first Mormon president to Barack Obama’s election as the first African-American to hold the position, an event that 'made us proud as Americans.'
President Obama's post-convention poll bounce appears to be real. Some Romney supporters are worried, but he has two major advantages: an economy that continues to falter under Obama's watch and the ability to raise and spend money on campaign ads.
Mitt Romney needs to keep the focus on the travails of the US economy under Obama, and to humanize himself by telling his personal story, Republican analysts said during the Sunday talk shows, in advance of this week's GOP national convention.
As the GOP Convention approaches, Mitt Romney said he was proud that his Massachusetts health care plan guaranteed coverage for women. He criticized President Obama for trying to tie him to Rep. Todd Akin's rape and abortion remarks.
Adding Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin to the GOP ticket makes that state competitive, but it's no guarantee that Romney-Ryan will win it. A closer race in Wisconsin, though, will force Team Obama to spend time and money there.
