I hope this is correct, and think there is a good chance it will be. Remember, though, that 1980 was 32 years ago, and the electorate has added an entire generation of voters, many of whom have been steeped in an intensifying environment of expectation, celebrity worship and instant gratification which makes the 1980 demographic look like the Depression-WWII cohort. Fortunately there is now so much more access to information and the ability to refute false statements instantly on the web and alternate media. The debates and final weeks will be decisive. Face-to-face with Romney and facts, Obama will bristle and reveal himself in an unspinnable venue, much as the "moderator" may try to help.
