Among other reasons:
- The "establishment" (Non-Far-Right) GOP will be able to convince Independents and Democrats who voted for Scott Brown over Martha Coakley in Massachusetts that Mitt Romney, besides having been a successful-enough governor of Massachusetts, is a Scott Brown equivalent in many respects.
- Former Governor Romney will be the first Hispanic president-- since George Romney was born in Mexico-- and the first Evangelical Mormon president, which will appeal to those who want novelty in this election cycle.
- 2009-2011 were Democrat legislative and executive years. Wanting change by way of having Republican congressional and legislative years, many will vote out Senate Majority Leader Reid and President Obama as they voted the Republicans out of having the Senate Majority leadership in 2006 and the presidency in 2008.
