Senior citizens hate him for Obamacare (though are somewhat indifferent to Romney the architect), and within that group Jews'll go Romney's way if he picks Cantor for Veep, Cubans are spoken for so that leaves blacks and Puerto Ricans. Na, he can't win Florida.

North Carolina voted against samesex marriage at the polls just before Obama 'came out' for it. He can kiss babies with Bev Perdue and Kay Hagan as much as he wants -it's not gonna change anything. Missouri's forgotten the mormon war but has Mitt? Hmm... That qualifies as a tossup, as is AZ.

This election is in the hands of the unemployed, Hispanics and Mormons. The states of Ohio, Colorado and Nevada will likely be decided by each respective group.

Pretty accurate analysis, though I think Hispanics will have greater influence in Nevada than Mormons.

There is a lot of humor to be mined from this as the mind of LBJ in the body of an 18 month old baby girl is quite hilarious.

It's plausible but probably won't happen.

A Republican - at least for a little while

Given that Mondale and Reagan were quite close over the summer, I find it quite possible.

The president's opponents feel so strongly about him that there's no way any of the McCain states (namely Missouri and Arizona) will vote for him this time.
"Gov. Walker's opponents feel so strongly about him that there's no way any of the Barrett counties will vote for him this time."


In 2004, GWB's opponents felt VERY strongly about him, and he still managed to pull it out, and even to increase his PV percentage by about 3 points over 2000. I'm not saying that's likely to happen with Obama (it isn't), but just because Republicans are motivated, it doesn't mean it's enough to defeat an incumbent president.
You're right, but since this election will probably be closer than 2008, I don't see it happening.  2000 was one of the closest presidential elections in history, after all, and GW Bush carried all of the Dole states from '96 and then some.  I think you will see something similar with Romney this time, regardless of who wins the election.

Quote from: Dwight D. Eisenhower
There is nothing wrong with America that the faith, love of freedom, intelligence, and energy of
her citizens cannot cure.

We need more liberal Republicans.
