Conservative commentator Erick Erickson wrote on his RedState.com website that Romney was like a puppy that needs to be house-trained (CNN). Why?

For Republicans, the question comes down to whether traditional conservative voters (the GOP base) dislike Obama enough to overlook their apprehension that Romney is not as far to the right as they would like.

“Conservatives still have doubts about Romney,” said Darrell West, vice president and director of governance studies at the Brookings Institution. “They continue to worry that he’s not conservative enough, and that even when he says conservative things, he doesn’t really mean them.’’

Romney’s team should be concern come November. Romney faces doubts regarding his sincerity on a number of issues. Romney will need a strong support from the conservative base to win in November.
