    I'm sure we'll get a lot of spin from Republicans about how it really doesn't matter that Mitt Romney is so unpopular within his own party because Republicans hate Obama so much they'll vote for Romney anyway.
    and the RepubliKlans have more than enough of this hatred to overlook all their "problems" with (R)money.

    As for the so-called swing voters - that is, those White people who sometimes vote Repub and sometimes vote Democratic - the Repubs only need a small % of them to win. After all, White people are still a disproportionate percentage of the electorate even if they are an ever decreasing percentage of the electorate.

    If 55% of White people vote Repub, the Repubs lose; however, if 60% of White people vote Repub the the Repbs win (see elections of 2008 and 2010, respectively, for confirmation). Approximately $1 billion will be spent this year to influence this small percentage of White people to swing one way or the other. Hopefully, what happened as the result of the elections in Wisconsin and Ohio in 2010 will prove to be a greater impetus to, finally, get White people to stop voting against their own best interest.

    I am not now, nor have I ever been, a member of the Republican Party.
