Since there are about 70 million Baby Boomers, and maybe 14 million Blacks, and maybe twenty million Hispanics, and many women, think again. Most of these people, all adults, will vote for Obama, as far as I can tell.
Who are the 95% that you speak of?
You asked LeJimbo to provide a coherent answer? What you'll probably end up with is an off topic SNL-eque headline post that will go uncredited.

The Republicans want Rubio, especially the tea party and conservatives. He is the one Democrats TRULY FEAR!!

An easy choice.

Ryan is the One the dems want and I would be surprised if Romney picked him as it is rare that a vp candidate comes from the House of Representatives.

My second choice behind Rubio, would be Bob McDonnell, the Governor of Virginia, with high ratings in the state and after hearing him talk he is very personable.

Marco Rubio: ex-Mormon, hard drinker, Ted Kennedy fan and a new source of trouble for Mitt Romney

He doesn’t hold back from discussing his family’s relationship with Mormonism, which he claims he advised them to give up. Moreover, he goes to great lengths to prove that he isn’t an ideologue or a party man. Young Marco was a big fan of Ted Kennedy and he was “crushed” when he failed to win the 1980 Democratic nomination. In 2008, he wept with joy when America elected its first black president:“I was so proud to be an American, and so moved by the powerful symbolism of the moment, I couldn't stop myself from tearing up.…[Some] thought they were tears of regret for the election of a Democratic president. But they weren't. There would be plenty of time to oppose the new president's misguided policies. That night was a night to be proud of our country.”

Obama is using nothing more against Romney than Romney's own history.
A man who can drop 12 million dollars in cash to buy a house, and then demand a reduction in property taxes, has nothing in common with me, or with middle class America.
A man who ran with a gang when he was 18, and bullied a Gay man with the gang backing him up, is a coward & not a person I want in the White House.
Romney has in my opinion some attributes of the man who shot up the Sikh temple in Wisconsin the other day: a narrow-minded, violent bigot, and a loose cannon ready to crush the innocent in his path.
Middle-class???

The middle-class is facing genocide because of Obama's failed ecomomic policies.

The INCOMPETENT Obama has not created a SINGLE NET Job in 3 1/2 years to go along with his 5 TRILLION DOLLAR increase in the Deficit.

Besides, Obama is nothing more than an Uncle Tom for the International Bankers. Ron Paul is clearly the best choice but sadly, the BANKSTERS won't let him win.

WOW, is this some sort of spoof.:) Rubio's college roommates said that he had a picture of Ronald Reagan hanging over his bed.

In fact, the dems are so terrified of Rubio that they actually undercut their own black candidate for the US Senate in 2010 that was running against him, Kendrick Meek, because they thought Chatlie Crist had a better chance to win.

Still, the AP is reporting that the choice is Ryan and, while not my choice, Romney has earned the right to make that decision.

The AP could still be wrong.

I still think it is Portman. Ryan would be more 'interesting' than Romney and Rmoney doesn't like that.
Besides, Rubio calle ACA Obomneycare and said his parents came to USA to escape Castro and Castro did not come into power until after they were here.??
And Rubio was Mormon, so maybe that is it. Too much Mormon and the White Horse Prophecy thing, possibly?

I didn't know he got benefits. Hard to believe Fox reported that. Maybe they are tired of people calling their viewers stupid.
