While I hope you are right I fear you are engaging in some serious dreaming and wishful thinking. obama already has large voting blocs in the bag regardless of what he does or doesn't do.

Romney has no such bloc tied to him at all costs.

In "likely voter" polls, both nationally & in those "swing states" (FL, VA, OH, IA, WI, CO) Obama generally hits a ceiling of ~46%. This is NOT favorable for an incumbent president. The critical "undecided" voters mostly do not like Obama and simply need assurance that the challenger is not certifiably insane.
I believe Romney will prevail in the end by at least 5% in the popular vote.
