That and the fact that he's now completely pivoted to the middle and flip floped on half his agenda of the last 2yrs. Yet people are completely buying his bullshit. It really is astounding to me really. One poor debate by Obama in which he did ok on substance but was very lackluster/low energy has completely given that schmuck new life.
The media does a huge job of helping that. A million articles come out with the title "Romney wins debate" and without even reading the article or watching the debate people will flip sides to Mitt. Not enough people look at both sides of the story and make an informed decision on who to choose.

That being said, I'm not educated enough on the subject to make a decision between Obama and Romney. I respect Obama after reading Dreams of My Father though.
