Obama vs. Romney Create Your Own Electoral Map.
or is Romney going to win in a landslide reminiscent of Ronald Reagan's 1980 and 1984 successes. Ultimately, I believe it will be the later and for the same reasons. The only ones who have a reason to vote for Carter or Obama are the "knee-jerks" who would vote for a Democrat under all and any circumstances.
Romney (or Reagan) never had a chance of convincing them. The problem for Obama is that there are never enough "knee-jerks" to win an election on either side of the aisle. Both Carter and Obama are ending their term with a national security/diplomatic disaster. Iran for Carter and Libya (Benghazi) for Obama. But, although it is difficult to argue that both were incompetent on the economy and national security matters, only Obama raises the question of cowardice under fire. Only Obama can be legitimately viewed as a commander and chief without any courage. By definition, that means the a majority of Americans will reject Obama in this coming election. Not because they are Democrat, Republican, or independent; but, because they are Americans first.
