-- the Republican contenders continue to battle for the nomination.
And we're beginning to get a better look at president Obama's reelection campaign status.
But the president's strategy is really still and something of a holding pattern they tell us until we find out -- his opponent will be.
Maybe -- Fox News poll that shows 63%.
Of voters say they think Mitt Romney has the best chance of beating the president among those.
Conservatives there or among the Republicans into the race that's more than fifty points higher than his closest rival Newt Gingrich who pulled in just 9%.
-- now the chairman of the Democratic Governors Association Martin O'Malley sir great to see you thank you.
Hey thank you Chad thanks for having it is all of the planning now for a for a Romney has Republican candidate -- or what is it.
On on now I finished -- process it needs to be played out in the Republican Party.
I think whoever their nominee though is shot at the bottom line the most important thing and one of -- one of the voters that was interviewed said this.
We need a president who do the things that work to create jobs there is no progress in our country unless more of -- people get back to work.
And while we can debate whether or not the recovery is happening as fast as we'd like the fact of the matter is we've had fifteen months in a row under president Obama's leadership of positive job creation.
We haven't been able to do that as a nation since 2005.
Have been driven them to their lowest levels this summer and 44 months and the unemployment rate now is lower than it's been since February.
We have a lot of work ahead of us that voters want.
A president that we'll do the things that work to get people back to work of.
Course we all know the model has changed and when you drill down on this matter of jobs we haven't had a net creation of jobs.
In twenty years across democratic and Republican administrations.
The model needs to be reborn.
What's the president's strategy.
A look a modern economy requires modern investments in order to create jobs.
The president and wants to make those investments he's offered several jobs bills to this.
And each of those jobs bills have been blocked but -- that things have made us a great country in our grandparents and our -- -- by the same things that matter now.
Let's educate more of our people -- better and higher levels let's invest in infrastructure innovation research and development and also job creation.
We've had a tax code that rewards those that manipulate money and speculate instead of on that rewards people for making investments taking -- Making things and selling them in the world market so.
These are the things that we need to do in order to make our country go if you look around the rest of the world.
The countries that are succeeding but the ones that are -- what we used to do as a country investing in the education in the innovative ability of our people.
-- all right nice to see Martin O'Malley the chair of the democratic governor is so thank you ship all right appreciate it.
