I want Obama to win as well. I have examined the beliefs of both major candidates and have determined that Obama will serve my goals much better than Mitt Romney will.
Fortunately, Obama will be the winner because even hardcore Republicans don't like Mitt Romney. Plus he's mormon and evangelicals likely aren't too happy about that. His problem is that he simply isn't very likable or trustworthy. He's not a war hero like Bob Dole or John McCain, so it's not like he can run on his military service.
As long as Obama doesn't do anything stupid enough to anger the fence sitting conservatives, he'll be a shoe in.
I think Paul Ryan was a decent choice for VP, but it won't help nearly enough to get Romney elected.
