33. Because 50% of America CAN'T STAND HER. She will get out their demoralized base.
After 8 years of BFEE, the only way the Repukes can win is to run against someone that their based DESPISES. Plus, their typical opposition campaigning doesn't work well against Obama because they look quite obvious in their race baiting...which turns off the minority of their party with half a brain in their heads.
