    in the Romney campaign. Of course, it will not be acknowledged by them. But their actions will reveal it. I mean, tell me what is working for them?

    What else do you do when you know your game plan is not working and the calender marches on?

    There is one other possibility: the Romney campaign will admit to themselves that the GOP electoral coalition won't win presidential elections any more and move to minimize the damage coming in November, with an eye on a long-term rebuilding project for the GOP.

    What would that mean? Shifting their policies that alienate many Latinos and women? But if Romney tried that, that has a more than a whiff of desperation. It would also feed into the narrative of him not having a consistent political ideology, and also alienate the Tea Party voters. Would the Tea party voters vote for him? At first glance, yes, because he is not Obama. But, if they think this presidential election just cannot be won, then they may not vote, or vote in small numbers.

    If that happened, then Obama could even run up his margins even more...

    This is not to say that Democrats should not work as if they were 10 points down. They should.

      Stupid and dangerous he is.

      The radical Republican party is the party of oppression, fear, loathing and above all more money and power for the people who robbed us.
