Quote of the Day
"Romney's going to help the upper class. He doesn't know everyday people, except maybe the person who cleans his house."
-- Sheryl Harris, a white, 52-year-old Southern Baptist from Virginia who makes $28,000 a year and believes that Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim, on why she refuses to vote for Mitt Romney
Certainly one person's opinion isn't representative of the thinking of an entire group of voters, and I still believe, as I've been saying for some time now, that for the most part Republicans would vote for a dog turd on the end of a stick rather than see the black Marxist in office for another four years. But the fact that it's possible for Romney to lose the support of somebody who should, in theory, be this much of a lock for the GOP -- part of their traditionally unthinking, unwavering base -- is extraordinarily revealing.
This race isn't over -- don't ever lose sight of that -- but I'm really beginning to think that Romney is utterly screwed.
