There are a lot of reasons this bizarre reasoning doesn't make sense. First of all, many of those states overwhelmingly support civil unions, which Romney opposed (he said he opposes anything that is "marriage by another name", or in other words, equal). Second, there's no reason to believe that voters who currently oppose same-sex marriage would flock to any candidate who agrees with that viewpoint - there are a lot of other issues they would consider. Third, the proportion of people opposing same-sex marriage has been on the decline for many years, and will continue to shrink, making opposing it a terrible long-term political strategy.
