General balance: Romney tilts right

Mitt Romney isn't running a "severely conservative" campaign. But it's not exactly a "Massachusetts moderate" effort either.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee is straddling
two sometimes-conflicting political ideologies as he focuses on President Barack Obama. Romney wants to attract independents. But
he's also dedicated to harnessing the anti-Obama energy from conservative activists.

It's a tricky move. But Romney so far is trying to prove he won't turn his back on his party's most passionate voters.

Romney's campaign has been recruiting his former GOP rivals'
staff and donors. Romney is also showering attention on the conservative media - offering interviews and private meetings.

And he's set to deliver a commencement address next week at
Liberty University, the evangelical college founded by the late Rev. Jerry Falwell in Lynchburg, Va.
