Winning would ruin him socially

Honestly, arthurus, I think most conservatives are supporting mitt for the same reason most mormons are. For them, it's because he's a mormon. For the other, it's because he's a republican.

They could care less if their principles align.

He is a blue-blood, silver spoon in mouth, kind of guy who did the Mormon thing at BYU, and the blue-blood thing at Hahvuhd. (while managing to avoid the draft, coincidentally)

Something about this campaign sounds very like the campaign in 1992. The Republican, a liberal, is running as a disengaged gentleman and the Conservative boosters are insisting that the Republicans are so energized and determined that Democrat would not get a second term that they would surely crawl over broken glass to vote for the Republican. Well the Conservatives don't care much about the broken glass and not so much about voting for a leftist to keep another leftist from winning the election. Most will say they will vote but many of those just won't get around to it on election day. Many don't think it is really the end of the Republic in prospect and many think the chance to save the Republic ended with the primaries. I think the slide into inevitably started when Reagan was replaced by Clinton (Bush I being a perceived extension of Reagan) and confirmed by the statist policies Bush II which got us the kenyan. Obama may not yet be Octavian but when he wins this one he will look mighty like Julius.
