Romney Still Not Uniting the Base

Oops, I meant to say that he is currently polling about 90% among Republicans. And this on the heels of a divisive primary season. There goes our Colorado speculation!

Oh and he is beating Obama by two points overall.

The key is to get all of the registered Republican in this poll to show up in November.

McCain got 90% of the Republican vote too.

I see Debbie Downer is at it again.

McCain's problem wasn't with "only" getting 90% of the base. His problem was the youth vote and minorities turning up in never before seen numbers to vote for hope and change. Those blocs, especially the youth are not any where near as enamored with Obama as they were 4 years ago.

Mitt will win all the red states any conservative would win. The question is how many purple states he can turn. Here is my list of those that I think will turn. OH, FL, VA, NC, NH, IA and NV with possible NV and even PA in play. Obama is going to be playing a lot of defense with an injured secondary and no pressure up front. Good luck with that.

It's the unknown dynamic. How many people have come to the point where they will not voting for the incumbent again now that he has to run on his record. I believe this dynamic cannot be measured by simply looking at his disapproval rating as some are suggesting. It is a problem that's for sure!

I'm so sick of people claiming that va is a "purple state" just cause obama's dead voters gave him the state last time (and in just one yr there was an 18 pt swing back to the right!!) we've gone to the dems only once sice 1952 other than 2008 and that was LBJ but for some reason, mitt's not doing well here so I don't know what will happen in nov but it's most likely because of the primary that alienated voters

RWN, Sarah Palin could not get 90% of the party to support her...and you love the woman..so why not cut Romney some slack? Why hold him to a more difficult standard than you would any other candidate?
