10. I think that's an exaggeration
I think that because Republicans have sided with Obama against their hated Hillary is by no means an indication that they will choose Obama and his progressive positions over Mccain, who shares many more common views.

It would make more sense to argue that many independents will move to Obama's side, but Republicans, I don't think so.
