President Obama and Mitt Romney are tied in Missouri. That's pretty bad for Mitt. Even though Romney is likely to take that state, he ought to be in a comfortable lead, but he's having a difficult time with conservatives.
Why is this such a surprise to anybody? Romney has ALWAYS had a hard time with conservatives because deep down everyone knows his heart is more moderate when it comes to many social issues. That all being said, once Romney secures the nomination, and the conservative votes are not being pulled in several different direction (i.e. Gingrich and Santorum) you will definitely be seeing the conservatives rallying behind Romney in a very big way.
