      the first time I heard the term "Obama Republicans" I swear it was from Smerc on MSNBC, months and months ago.

      their party turned their backs on them back when Reagan was running, a subset of Republicans also find themselves facing the same situation this year.  Some will sit it out and others will become Obamacans.  

      So while I'm cautiously optimistic for our chances (the polls will tighten - they always do) I'm hoping these voters are being missed by the pollsters and we will be looking at an unprecedented election turnout for Obama. I have my fingers crossed.
