He could, like Gore, win the popular vote while losing in the electoral college. He will certainly lose his home state, as Gore did (and is pretty likely to lose the state where he grew up, as well.) And, like Gore, his campaign has kept the previous two-term President from his own party decidedly at arm’s length. (OK, in Romney’s case, it’s more like a Gadget arm.)
If Romney loses, will he devote his post-political career to a cause as Gore has with climate change? What would Romney’s cause be?
