Fresh off of a huge GOP primary win in Florida, Mitt Romney is feeling good. But exit polls revealed one key shortcoming that has dogged Romney thus far: Conservative voters — a key constituency, and the base of the Republican Party — are still not feeling good about his candidacy.

Some think he’s a flip-flopper; some think he’s really a British-style conservative who believes in welfare state lite, while others yet think he’s too weak or timid to win in a general election matchup against President Obama.

So what does he need to do to convince them he’s none of the above?
