If the R's would get out of the bubble and look at the situation from a reality standpoint. This is Kerry vs. Bush II.
Unemployment over 8%. 69% of the country thinks they are the same or worse off than 4 years ago. Over 50% think its heading in the wrong direction. The republican nominee should be comfortably ahead.
There is no way that Bush should have got a 2nd term. The Dems fielded a candidate that was unable to connect with the middle class undecideds. He was a very weak candidate. Romney is a weak candidate. The addition of the guy who wants to kill medicare will cost him Florida, not help.
