I think you are on to the tack he'll be forced to take ... My point is that he will be unable to avoid it and the damage it brings him. To you it may be the "end of story"; and the 22'ish% of republicans Romney consistently carries will be on board as well. But the remainder will be faced with a challenge of conscience; the resolution of which will not consistently fall in Romney's favor.

( "The Congress of the United States recommends and approves the Holy Bible for use in all schools.")
Barry Goldwater had MORE than 22% of the Republican base behind him, as did Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, George Bush, Bob Dole and John McCain.
They all lost.
I don't think there's ever been a Republican win the Presidency with just 22% of the base behind him at the end of the primary campaigns.
Ronald Reagan had about 80% of the Republican base behind him, but NOT the GOP-e ~ and HE WON! Nixon had fantastic Republican support for his two big wins, as did George Bush when he ran and won (both of them).

You will do everything you can to create that damage and I will do what I can to stop you.
