Your assessment on why moderates broke right in 2010 is faulty. For them it was never about attractive candidates. It was about anger over the stimulus and Obamacare.

We are in violent agreement. 2010 was never about candidate but about the spontaneous energy of the Tea party rising up to challenge both parties.
if independents voted against the stimulus and obamacare in 2010, then the 2012 campaign should reprise those themes.
... hmmm, so why didnt the RNC focus more on laying out the list of horrible decisions and policies under Obama? Obamacare, stimulus, debunking the auto bailout, solyndra, fast and furious, attack on the the catholic church, taxpayer funding for abortions, ending mexico city policy, social experiments in military, undermining the constitution with pseudo-amnesty. etc.
Other than Ryan’s excellent speech, the content was a bit thin. “yes I built it” was a great line, but is not a great campaign strategy.
Romney and Ryan are correct to focus on economy. they are not doing enough to nail Obama’s specific policies to that bad economy. JMHO.
