9. He is dampening the enthusiasm of many voters he had won over
He has pissed off many in his base. Many will vote for to keep out the GOP. But the enthusiasm factor has had had major cold water splashed on it. And that IS important in a tight race.

But worse, for his re-election chances, I think he has dampened many of the non-partisan voters he had won over. He has added to the "They're all the same" factor, and the cynicism will either cause them not to vote, or go for the "new guy or woman" the GOP puts up.
