  •  The key to this election isn't going to be (0+ / 0-)

    winning the last few undecideds, I think.  It will be turnout.
    That's why the gop has just about put all their chips on voter suppression.
    I'm hoping we can fully and overwhelmingly depress the right to the point that they stay home and that the undecideds who are likely to swing right just don't bother this time, and the undecideds who are more likely to swing to the Dems show up and hit the "party line" button.

    You can't make this stuff up.

      Even though they have a lackluster candidate like Mitt, they will be out in droves.  I quoted an article yesterday that said 81% of white registered voters are likely to vote in November.  It's 8-10% lower for blacks and hispanics.  And youth vote looks like it will be much lower than in 2008.

      The GOP hate President Obama enough that they could have a ham sandwich at the head of their ticket, and they would still all show up at the polls.  There will be no way to "depress the right" even a little bit, much less "overwhelmingly".

      Democrats need to  concentrate on getting out their base constituencies just to break even.  After that, I think the President needs to do something to woo over Independents

      •  this hurts romney with indies (0+ / 0-)

        lying about Bain hurts him with everyone.
