This is why Mitt Romney’s campaign sucks:
“Obama’s support among suburbanites in places such as Philadelphia is tenuous at best, too. If northern suburbanites and young professionals turn, then he is doomed to a huge loss. And persuadable voters such as Coulson are looking for a compelling reason to abandon him; divisive rhetoric is turning them off, and economics is only half the story.
If Romney can reassure suburbanites that America is exceptional because it doesn’t vote for or against anyone based on skin color, ethnic heritage or religion – that it votes based on a candidate’s principles, priorities and performance – then he has a chance to undermine Obama with northern suburbanites and to rout him in a landslide.”
He is trying to win the DWL vote in the Northern suburbs.
Note: Romney is taking for granted that he has us in his back pocket which allows him to “move to the center.”
Like McCain, he is wrong on that score. That’s why he is trailing in Virginia, North Carolina, and Florida. He can’t generate enough enthusiasm among conservatives and racialists to vote for him.
