The candidate who wants to win must have the women's vote. There is no way around that one and while yes, we do have an economy that needs more attention and the growth has been a slow one, the average middle class voter has not had their taxes raised and more people are thankful for the new healthcare law than are against it. The people I run across in Northern VA (somewhat leaning more conservative) were not ignorant of the incredible mess Obama inherited from 8 years of bad policies, one of the main one being the myth of trickle down economics. Ryan and Romney still are holding on to that myth but it has not worked for over a decade that it's been in play and it never will. More people educated themselves about how trickle down and deregulation created the economic problems and it's becoming obvious to even the mentally-challenged voter that it's a crock of shit and always has been. I would opine that as bad as things were when Obama took office, no one in their right mind would think the situation would be turning around in only one term.
It says a lot that Obama is still leading in polls even with a bad economy and Romney outspending him. Ryan's ideas have been found to be too controversial by even many Republicans and the Tea Party he supposedly is the darling of has consistently shown itself to be disproportionately full of racists and uneducated fools. That old adage of 'you are the company you keep' will be one of the reasons people will end up voting Obama back for a second term in my opinion.
Ryan is the best chance for the Repubican Party to raise the most money. THe american people always vote for the person BoatCaptain New
