It is quite a problem when you are running against someone who doesn't hesitate to make promises he knows he can't keep, who's every other statement is a bold face lie, and he holds half the voters as supporters. What do you do ? Do you start telling lies, and making false promises ? Do you run the opponent down with false accuzations too ? Even if you can't assume that your followers will get on line and call his supporters names and use profanity with no facts to back them up, whatcha gonna do?
One of Romney's great skills is the ability to turn around failing enterprises. He did it with private firms while he ran Bain Capital; he did it for an indebted Massachusetts and he did it for the Olympics. He needs to do it for his campaign now.

Neil Newhouse, Romney's pollster, attempted to soothe worried Republicans last week by stressing that the race remains extremely close. But the fact that Romney's pollster isn't worried is itself worrying. By rights, Romney should be 10 points ahead. They seem to think the bad economy will automatically win this race for the Republican.
