Mitt Romney has overtaken President Barack Obama’s lead in the polls as he has clarified misstatements about his positions,  Sen. Marco Rubio told Newsmax.

The media has portrayed Romney’s corrections as moderating his opinions, but that’s not the case, Rubio said in an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV.

Watch our exclusive interview. Story continues below.



“What’s happening is that Gov. Romney is correcting the record on his stance on several issues, and some in the media want to portray that as moderation,” Rubio said. “It’s not. It’s principally held positions that they have, quite frankly, participated in misconstruing throughout the campaign.”

Radical ideas which Obama and the media say are from Republicans actually reside on the American left, according to Rubio. That includes the government spending more than it takes in and thinking that more taxes and regulation will heal the economy.

Rubio said that the American free-enterprise system is why a “permanent, enduring and prosperous middle class” exists. And that, he said, is exactly what Romney wants to preserve.

“The positions the Republican Party and conservative movement have are mainstream American positions,” Rubio said. “People need to remember that that’s what’s at stake here. If we go down the road that Barack Obama’s taking us on, we’re going to get away from the free-enterprise system, and the middle class is going to suffer.”
