I am not advocating Obama vs Romney. I am merely pointing out that Romney (if he is the nominee) will have some rather soft support from members of his own party. If the Republicans all hit the polls simply because they hate Obama, so be it, but that's not a prime motivation to fire up the base and get coat-tails for Romney, if experience is any guide.
Actually, I think a great many people from the base President Obama is counting on might just stay home if the price of gasoline is above $4.50 per gallon - given he said no to the Canadian pipeline. I also expect to hear some discussions of EPA regulations related to oil refineries and any reduced supplies - again IMO.
