    Wait, because unlike every other year this will be the year when Dems throw decorum to the wind and will accuse Republicans of wanting to throw Granny down the stairs!

    I don't see Romney being able to overcome the bad press the Ryan budget got. If he can't eliminate the "ryan pushing grandma off a cliff" image from voters minds, he's done.

    "ryan pushing grandma off a cliff" is precisely how Romney has lost Florida. New commercials will be made next week with Mitt and Ryan gladly handing out dollars to Billionaires while Grandma is denied medicare...

    I still see Romney winning Florida.

    But point taken.

    Not, the point.

    Seniors are worried over changes to Medicare, and they are scared of the Ryan budget( even if you don't think they should be). They associate Ryan with a dismantling of Medicare, and there's just enough truth in the "end of medicare as we know it." slogan that those ads will run non-stop in Florida.

    Yes, it's exactly the point.

    You're trying to compare the budget plan of someone who had the courage to release one, over a chump whose floated "vote present" budgets haven't been able to garner sum total votes in congress that have reached into double digits.

    Rubio hasn't withdrawn his support for Romney and Florida voters still listen to Marco.

    Bill Nelson will be uprooted in November, turning Florida from purple to red.

    Romney will also take Virginia from the OP.

    This election is, now officially, about the Economy.

    I'm not comparing budgets, I'm talking about voter perception. Seniors will vote Obama if they think Romney has plans to steal their Medicare.
