Wiseman Talks Presidential Politics

Posted by Andrew Harrison | August 09, 2012 / 04:55pm | Local News, Political
STARKVILLE, Who will win the presidency in November?
 It's still anybody's guess.
 Recent polls have President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney running in a virtual dead heat.
 A stronger economy and more jobs are on the minds of most voters, but according to Dr. Marty Wiseman, the Director of the Stennis Institute of Government at Mississippi State, social issues like immigration and reproductive rights could also be deciding factors.
 Wiseman thinks Mitt Romney can already count on Mississippi's 6 electoral votes, but that certainly doesn't mean he's a shoe-in for the White House.
 Dr. Wiseman says,  "The race is being run in the 10-15 battleground states. I heard it referred to on television the other day, as that's where the election is being held, and the rest of us are just on the outside looking in the window. "

 The latest research shows that President Obama has a significant edge in the battleground states.
 Dr.Wiseman says Romney will likely carry the entire South, with the possible exception of Florida.
