    West side of Ohio - very conservative area.  I've been talking to some of my conservative, rural acquaintances about the election. These are simple hard working folks and for the most part not you're crazy teaparty types - mostly old school repubs. I've heard from some of them that they feel if you had to name one thing that got romney beat it was his secrecy. They were highly suspicious and, I believe, offended that he wouldn't release his tax returns. They just didn't like the arrogant dishonesty of the whole thing. One guy said "I think he thought he had our votes sewed up and didn't have to release his returns." Another said that he felt that romney were playing them for fools.

    Don't know, just some observations.......

      I always wondered at why the tax returns didn't come back up later into the campaign - I guess the Obama team might have known that folks were already thinking about it?

        they quit talking about it because they thought it wasn't getting any traction. Maybe you're right that they knew folks were already discussing it..........
