40. Romney's "electability" is overrated.
He looks (relatively) electable during the primary campaign because of the "I'm not as crazy as these other guys" effect. But if he's nominated, those "other guys" will all be gone, and he'll be compared instead to an opponent in President Obama who's actually sane. At that point "seems sane by virtue of comparison to Rick Perry and Michelle Bachmann" wouldn't be so much of a selling point.
