I agree, but the tea party types have force Romney to move hard right....which, in the general election, reduces his appeal with swing voters of independent and moderate leanings. Even if you get past his out-of-touch dull rich guy persona, the pandering and flip-flopping on nearly every issue he's done sour many true moderates.
