The Parties are Already Unified

While recent polls may disagree on whether President Obama or Mitt Romney is leading, Mark Blumenthal notes they all show both candidates getting an average of 88% to 90% support from members of their own parties.

John Sides: "Remember when Obama was going to lose the support of all those Democrats dissatisfied with his weak-kneed compromises? And remember how Romney was going to struggle to win over the base because, like, 'Anybody but Romney' was 75% of the GOP? Well, here it is only April, and the bases are basically unified."
