No. of Recommendations: 5
It isn't clear to me. More than a few voters have been discouraged from showing up at the polls for fear of being humiliated by being turned away, whether new voter ID have been passed or not.

Look at it this way: The Romney campaign has been aggressively blaming our nations problems on unions, the elderly, working class whites, Hispanics, and school teachers. This has caused these constituencies to run screaming for the exits.

According to Romney the solution for the nation's problems is to kick millions of sick and elderly Americans off of Medicaid so they can pay for the cost of giving Mitt Romney a tax cut. That's gone over just as great as you imagine it would. For example:

As a topper, Mitt Romney says it is a horrible mistake Americans aren't dying in Iraq anymore. I guess he thinks more Americans need to die there*, although he hasn't said specifically that he would try to restart the war.

As you'd imagine, as we are getting close to the election and people are beginning to pay attention to the issues, they are beginning to be shocked at what a stumble bumb Romney is. He basically wants to screw everyone who might want to vote for him. The possible exception is high income voters, who you may recall broke for Obama in 2008.

*For his part, he has said that only certain Americans should be fighting in Iraq. For example, he said that his sons are too valuable to be fighting because they are too busy serving their country trying to get their dad elected president. If your dad isn't running for president and if you aren't lucky enough to get killed, you can serve your country by getting your arms blown off or living with PTSD or something. Thank goodnees for small favors.
