Response to Populist_Prole (Original post)

6. You know...

Far more brutally frank than any pollster could ever figure out. It's such a stark contrast of positions between the two contenders, more than I've ever seen in my lifetime.

In Romney, here we have a candidate so flawed, so absolutely vile that no sensible voter could ever cast their lot with him.

Forty years ago, I thought the same about the McGovern/Nixon contest. (Of course, that didn't end so well for us...) It's hard to realize how much things have changed -- while Tricky Dick may have been corrupt, divisive, cynical, and paranoid, most of his non-military policies would be too far left for even the current Democratic Party. Rmoney really would be a quantum leap worse than the Trickster ever was.
