Gallup: race is Obama's to lose

Barack Obama has a strong lead over Mitt Romney.  It's the President's race to lose.  Not long ago triumphant Tea Partiers were wearing buttons that said "Is it 2012 yet?".  Talk of the unconstitutionality of `Obamacare' was rife.  What happened?  The Republican primaries, I would say.  That long running TV show drove Romney - a non-ideological center-right politician sharply to the right.  It turned the campaign into what Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) called a "demographic election".  The Republican Party's attachment to bible belt white conservatism appears to be its undoing. - GWC
