The head to heads and the presidential approval ratings in recent national polls suggest that the presidential race will be very close. The spotlight is on independents but the outcome will probably depend on the ability of each party to turn out its base. This is why President Obama kicked off his re-election on college campuses Saturday and Joe Biden endorsed gay marriage yesterday. The president's goal is to energize the young people who put him over the top in 2008. Romney's challenge is turning out the Christian conservatives who did not support him in the primaries.
