Cadillacs put a dent on Mitt Romney’s campaign

Article by Christian A., on February 28, 2012

The fact that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney owns a Ford Mustang and a Chevrolet pickup while his wife Ann has at least two Cadillacs is putting a dent on his campaign. Romney talked about his cars while addressing the Detroit Economic Club as part of his campaign before the Feb. 28 primary in Michigan.

These remarks offer further proof of how rich Romney is as a Cadillac costs between $36,000 to $74,000. He also shared that he has homes in Massachusetts and California as well as a vacation place in New Hampshire.

Remember when U.S. Sen. John McCain of Arizona wasn’t able to say just how many houses he owned during his presidential campaign in 2008 that he eventually lost? Romney may be on the same path now.

On Feb. 22, an NBC/Marist survey of probable voters in Michigan's Republican primary was released. It indicated that Romney had 37% support while former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania got 35%.

For Romney to lose in Michigan would be a terrible blow since this is where he grew up and it’s also where his father became governor and CEO of American Motors Corp. Jennifer Duffy, an analyst with the nonpartisan Cook Political Report in Washington, said that Romney’s statements emphasize how difficult it is for him to connect with people.

On Feb. 1, he made a comment on CNN that put him on the defensive. In discussing proposals to help the middle class, Romney said that he isn't "very concerned about the very poor" since they have a "safety net" of government programs to help them. [source: BusinessWeek]
