Many are calling it a turnout election. If true, the Romney campaign has to be thrilled with Pew’s finding that it has a turnout edge on President Obama’s campaign.
Breitbart.com has the numbers:
In 2008, among registered voters Democrats held a 12-point lead on party identification. This year, the Democrat lead is just 5 points. That isn’t enough to withstand Romney’s turnout advantage.
If Pew’s findings hold through Tuesday and Romney has the turnout edge, he is well on his way to victory.
I think the pollsters all underestimate the turnout for Romney. Cot for your love of country!

@kirstenpowers10 Gallup using a model of voter turnout similar to Ras polls where party ID is about even. If that happens, Romney wins.
