Mitt Romney may be alienating himself from voters: Queen's University expert
Queen’s University American foreign policy expert Brandon Tozzo is available to comment on Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign running into trouble after two public gaffes. Two excerpts from a secretly-recorded video were published – the first where he described President Barack Obama’s supporters as victims’ dependent on the government, while the second video clip has Romney stating Palestinians don’t want peace.
“Although gaffes rarely decide elections, Romney's comments do emphasize that he might be out of touch with average Americans who has been dealing the worst recession since the Great Depression,” says Mr. Tozzo, a PhD student in political studies. “With poll numbers showing him behind the incumbent, many fear that Romney's vast wealth and work for the investment firm Bain Capital may alienate him from voters and prevent the Republicans from taking the White House in November.”
