Mitt Romney will be the Republican Nominee
Intrade.com has Mitt Romney’s odds of securing the Republican Nomination at 66.3%. This is preceded by seven days closing above the sixty-five percent mark and a five-day moving average that crossed the same mark three days ago.
Sixty five percent is generally regarded as a lock for most contests on Intrade.com. If you can get consistently above sixty-five percent, your contest is pretty much settled. You may not like him, but if you’re Republican, you had better get used to the idea of having him as your nominee. Even though there are candidates that have a more coherent economic plan and there are serious issues with his candidacy in general.
Oh, and if he does get elected, remember that gridlock tends to be our country’s only saving grace. Romney’s presidency will likely be just as bad as George W’s – if not worse.
