30. I don't think so. I hope not, but I was watching C-Span and Romney's campaign...

...advisor was on there talking to Republicans and team Romney has no illusions about where they stand. According to them, they're up in a lot of areas (like economy) but people really don't like Romney. As in, his own campaign manager was saying they have a 30 point deficit against Obama on likability. So they're ooshing around, trying to push a "You don't have to like him to vote for him" and some other weasely ways to try to make inroads.

I don't think it's going to work. 2012, just like 2010 was the Democrats' race to lose. The President is definitely not doing a 50-state strategy and I don't know if that's wise. So there could be more play there than it might seem. Then again, the Democratic convention still is yet to happen and I'm assuming things are going to go into nuclear overdrive from that point forward.
