39% is actually respectable for a Republican compared to the last 3 elections there.

Romney's ceiling in this state is probably around ~42-43%, assuming a not-too-great year for Obama. Most of those undecideds will probably break D in the end when they are reminded of why our tanking opinion of him spooked Romney so much that he bailed on reelection so as not to tarnish his image.

To be absolutely fair, that's still like five points better than any of these other people could end up with.
