So, why is Mitt going to lose?

Poll Forthcoming.

Bottom-line for me: Obama hasn't been great, but Mitt is an awful candidate for America in 2012. For what it's worth, he'd have been a fine candidate for the GOP in the 1880s....but this ain't 1880.

290-248....you read it here.

FTR, the odds are 3:1, or 4:1. So, yes, I could end up being wrong...just sayin'.

Please discuss...

He's being held back by the Michelle Bachmans and the Rick Santorums who are hell-bent to impose their strict moral and religious values on a voting bloc that doesn't share those values. And to some extent he's also being held back by the policy failures of the Bush administration.

Romney has been by no means a perfect candidate. He waited far too long to repudiate the attacks on his personal record, and he didn't hit Obama nearly hard enough on the current Benghazi scandal in the last debate. But the major problem for the Romney candidacy is that he was put in the very difficult position of having to convince the Tea Partiers that he was conservative enough to get the Republican nomination, and now that conservatism (faux that it may be) is unappealing to a large percentage of voters.
Excellent post. I agree with about 90% of it (sans the Benghazi bit--premature, at best IMHO.) Until the GOP changes from their current track, they will be mired in their status as the minority party in this country.

I'm sure being an incumbent and out-raising your opponent 600M to 400M has nothing to do with it...

LOL

Why aren't their more realistic answers available, this poll is about as effective as congress.

Obama is a great candidate.........for Venezuela, Cuba, Russia, France, Spain, and Greece.

If Mitt loses, it will be because the welfare/food stamp/Obamaphone/big gov't/redistribution voters outnumber the common sense voters. The U.S. will become a welfare state.

It is plausible that Mitt losing could come down to 1 single thing: "Let them Go Bankrupt"

If Ohio is the difference, and he really can't win without it, his joining with the ideologues on that one thing could very well be the difference.
