    They also hate "Losers".

    I predict that this election will blow most previous polling numbers out of the water and that millions of Republicans and Independents will quietly vote for Obama/Biden.

    We can only hope that they also vote down-ticket enough to carry the House and Senate.

    No vote is wasted anywhere this election and Democrats should be encouraged to vote down-ticket in every State.

      Let me modify that a bit, and de-personalize it.  We've had plenty of "loser" stories around here, and the word is (rightly or not) attached to the concept of bullies and losers.

      Americans hate being associated with supporting a losing cause.  That's what it really boils down to.  The Romney campaign has become a losing cause.  Hardcore supporters will rage against the dying light; many squishy supporters / voters will just go, "I ain't gettin' involved with that shit", and sit on the sidelines (which is my most fervent hope, because it helps downticket races).

        Let's hope that some will also like to be associated with an intelligent and winning campaign and vote in kind.
