    Rick is losing ground in PA primarily because Mitt Romney is a snake. It will take everything I have (along with some alcohol) to walk into my polling place and pull the lever for him in November should I be forced to. There is no way I can ever influence my circle to vote for Romney…McCain was hard enough to convince people, and at least he is better than Romney.
