A 40-State Sweep?

For Romney?  Wouldn't that be something?  Don Surber thinks it's possible and he has some good reasons to back it up.

Despite every attempt to distract voters with all sorts of nonsensical issues, when voters go into the polling places in November they won't be thinking about Rush Limbaugh or Sandra Fluke, they'll be thinking about the last four years under Obama and whether they want to do that all over again.  In 1980 voters overwhelming rejected a failed president.  I'm hoping they'll do it again this year.

I have a hard time believing that Obama will risk a straight-up election against Romney without pulling something. Obama has lost only once that I know of, while he fabricated dirt on his opponent in more than one election to come from behind and win.

Obamacare has yet to be decided by SCOTUS, and Israel may yet attack Iran, plus there could be a completely unforeseen event lurking out there somewhere -a crisis not to be wasted

But, if Romney DOES win 40 states, what would that do to Republican internal presidential strategy. The Republican establishment would use it to cement the primary order of blue states voting ahead of red states. They would also make the argument that letting ABC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC and NPR run the debates worked in the party's favor, and move to rid the likes of FOXNews from any role. The long term effects of a Romney 40-state sweep could be detrimental to conservatism in the Republican Party.
