Is Mitt Romney really more electable?

The Republican nomination race is now turning strongly toward the question of electability and most pundits are pointing toward former governor Mitt Romney as the most electable hopeful.

Romney consistently performs better than the other candidates in polls against President Barack Obama.  However, many GOP strategists have wondered whether Romney can really motivate the Republican base to get out the vote.

Predicting voter turnout is problematic especially with so much time to before the general election.  If Romney is unable to ignite the base can he hope to get the turnout needed to defeat Obama?

Some polls are suggesting that Romney is not so popular among the most reliable voters in the Republican Party.
