If the election were held today edging out the president 46%.
Joining us now for more on the race Ed Rollins leading Republican strategist.
Fox News political analyst great to have you here a pleasure we just heard governor Johnson and thinks he's saying he thinks that -- The we're gonna see Romney continued to build a lead over the president do you agree.
-- when a very close race all the way I think I think he's heading Romney has done a wonderful job of coming back from tough primaries where he is dead even with the president most polls.
I think it'll continue -- way to be a little boost after the conventions.
I think the last to a few weeks when exactly we are today that it comes down the states if Johnson -- can win is good is home state of New Hampshire.
-- -- governor that'll help a great deal.
And also talking with him about the vice presidential candidates.
Pay out senator.
One of those obviously Marco Rubio he said.
-- we -- spend ten minutes on -- or decided perhaps we shouldn't.
There seems to be a real clamor here for Marco Rubio.
He he seems to be going the way with most support I think most people who have a great appreciation for what he's done as a young.
The change agent in the sense that he uses an opportunity to -- Hispanic community.
Reinforce the Cuban Americans it is very important Florida and gives us a great voice as a young man for the future of our party I think it's positive thing.
And why and what about a Rob Portman.
A man who is -- Experienced well regarded also.
-- a candidate about.
I think the word has to be.
Not spark -- I think Rob Portman gives you great dimension -- talking about budgets and things like that.
But you're not gonna win Ohio just because you put -- on the ticket and you don't get to go beyond.
I think I think he and he and in the Enron meet together.
I've basically just don't create a lot of excitement and I think -- -- -- be it would.
The president creating excitement today saying in fact that there governor Romney would not a kill some of them walked.
It was -- a mistake.
It was a terrible mistake and it was very unfair and and I think getting -- it has several people have said.
Whoever was the president today saw those set of circumstances.
Would have basically said go.
The end of the day it was our great Navy SEALs led by the admiral just dilated here.
But the one who made it happen and I think it would have been irresponsible for any president not to have done that this guy was our enemy wouldn't chase him for ten years.
What's going on with this.
This president's campaign.
One of the president's website posting the names of eight private service.
That who have donated to Romney.
I have to say that happen that's and a troubling to me up approach it's -- To me whoever -- donors are aware of your supporters are we're all Americans and I think to a certain extent -- hand should going campaign to get hands off the others there are lots of people.
We don't want to -- every day go through Obama's list.
And say here's a bad guy is a good guy -- -- Americans and at this point in time entry about the president is about mr.
Romney what mr.
right but the president has done.
And I think this section and it -- if you don't have this core.
-- believes that you can do your own team and you got to take the other -- out and I think it's a bad precedent that should trouble you -- -- last year you thought this -- -- be that -- campaign history.
You still -- I still believe that I think I think there's -- because of the closeness of the race and I think to a certain extent we've already started we've.
The combination of super -- a combination of the negative advertising.
It's been 95% of the -- so far in the campaign I just don't see any side basically saying let's talk about positive things here.
And I think it's good for America.
Campaign slogan for President Obama forward.
How mature reaction has certainly -- an analyst the strategies that you contrast that to -- brought Ronald Reagan's which was you know leadership -- working.
He can't put that one out or leadership that you trust so I think.
Ford's been on the backward and -- -- a certain extent you know maybe to make it progress they did a long ways to go aren't good -- and.
