Missing GOP Voters

Scott Johnson and John Hinderaker of the well-known Power Line blog write about  missing GOP voters\. That is, people who were expected to turn out and vote for Romney but didn't.

Their view is that the culture has turned these people against capitalism, the underlying economic philosophy of Republicans. If true, that is a very difficult barrier to leap over.

Unlike these authors, I wonder if Romney's association with Bain - a private equity firm - wasn't too exotic for these missing voters to understand. In other words, perhaps the role of private equity in cleaning up the "garbage" of free enterprise is too distasteful. See what you think.
