    I think a LOT more people believe the Birther and Muslim crap than we realize plus I wonder how much damage the 2016 movie did?

      after four years and none of the craptastic predictions coming true,  it will be a terrible step backwards.  Further, Romney-Ryan will truly make the country worse off, so we lose doubly.

      We can't change the cards in the deck, but we can always play more skillfully.  The Obama campaign understands ground game and grass roots door knocking.  It will help.

    •  Or they are simply more AT EASE with a white Pres (0+ / 0-)

      They may think President Obama is a good and honorable man, but they simply "prefer" Romney because at a more subconscious level, it's all about racial identity. And even if Romney's policies concern them, they tell themselves that he will "moderate" the policies, because in the past this is what has always happened. They don't BELIEVE that the extreme right will get what they want. If God forbid Romney was elected, they'll have buyer's remorse, that's for sure.
