The Task Ahead

In these final days of the campaign, the two candidates need to accomplish different tasks.

The Romney campaign needs to answer the question that some voters have following his changes of position over the last couple of weeks: “Can I trust the man who he appears to be now or, if elected, will he again become the man he was earlier in the campaign?” And the campaign must continue to remind voters of what Romney describes as the failures of Obama in the last four years.

The Obama campaign must spend a good chunk of its effort convincing folks that the earlier Romney is the real Romney. At the same time, they need to give those undecided voters some idea of how the next four years will be different and better than the last four years if Obama is reelected.
