Conservative political scientist and
presidential election analyst Charles Dunn believes Mitt Romney's
acceptance speech at last night's GOP convention was a grand
After being introduced
by Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida), the presidential nominee
approached the stage via an aisle lined with applauding delegates.
The former Massachusetts governor, once he made it to the podium
and quieted the cheering, wasted no time in addressing President
Barack Obama's record on the economy -- and pointing out the
philosophical differences between himself and the incumbent.
"He had almost no experience working in a business. Jobs to him
are about government," said Romney. "I learned the real lessons
about how America works from experience."
The GOP presidential nominee hopes that the American people will
believe that his experience is what the country needs to turn
around the economy. In his acceptance speech, Romney depicted Obama
as a well-meaning but inept man who must be replaced.
Dr. Charles W. Dunn of Regent University
says Romney's speech hit it out of the park. "I consider the speech
as a grand slam homerun," he tells OneNewsNow. "So when the
convention ended, the attendees left enthusiastic and generally
unified behind the Romney-Ryan ticket."
Dunn believes the bump out of the convention can carry Romney to
"I think we can expect when the dust settles that Romney and the
Republicans will have a significant bounce that could go into that
four- to six-percent bullish range," he predicts. "He could be
bullish about winning in November."
According to the Regent University educator, Romney's bounce can
withstand the onslaught that is sure to emerge from the Democratic
National Convention next week in Charlotte, North Carolina.
