The electorate is much more polarized than in 2004. There will be no mainstream Democrats or Republicans considering the opposing candidate. The choice is simple. Regardless of what you think of Romney, Obama with trillion dollar deficits and Obamacare (not mention the EPA enforcing Cap and Trade) is a job killer. The choice is, do you want a job and a chance, or no job and poverty in a bankrupt country. Poverty in a bankrupt country is an ugly way to live.
