Republican voters are finally wrapping their minds around the reluctant idea of Mitt Romney as their presidential nominee.
A recent poll from the Pew Research Center shows that 74 percent of GOP and GOP-leaning voters think Mitt Romney will walk away with the party’s presidential nomination.
It seems that the other three GOP candidates left in the race — Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Ron Paul — haven’t taken the hint yet and dropped out. Unfortunately, for them, the likelihood of them passing Romney in the delegate count is slim to none.
It’s about time Republicans got honest about who is going to lead them to the voting booths in November. Romney may not be the candidate hardly any of them envisioned, but he’ll have to do for now. Even with all of his flaws, he’s probably the most solid top-tier candidate they have.
The other candidates need to go ahead and wrap this up for the voters’ sake. They still have two weeks until the “Yankee Primary” — contests in Pennsylvania, New York, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Romney is guaranteed to win at least a few, if not all, of those states.
ANSWER IN THE COMMENTS SECTION:
Do you think the other GOP candidates should drop out and let Mitt Romney run with the party’s presidential nomination?
