geez people you ran a crappy candidate who couldn't get out of his own way against an underestimated incumbent. it happened to the democrats in 2004.

I think the evangelicals did not show up for Romney. Romney gets 3 million less votes than McCain.

my evidence is only anecdotal and therefore not necessarily an accurate reflection of demographic reality, but i've seen more southern evangelicals convinced that obama is allied with satan and MUST BE VOTED OUT AT ALL COSTS than in any other election in the past (granted we really only have three with current social media to get an accurate picture, and this is how much information is disseminated currently.)

the evangelical hype was unprecedented this year in my experience, and i'm willing to bet the polls reflect it, which does nothing but bolster the idea that they're sinking the republican party with 19th century paradigms that do not accurately reflect the shifting demographics and constituency of today's america.

To be fair, I have seen people on the losing end of every election crying like fools.

Part of getting folks pumped up is the inevitable crash. One winner and one loser each time.

True. But white people are still sooo stupid.

Like Bill O'Reilly said on Tuesday. "White America is now the minority. We are now a nation of people who want things." Meaning that there are two types of people in America, white people and the people who mooch off of white people.

That is what stupid people say,

Like Stephen Colbert said on his show on Wednesday in response to those comments, "Yeah! White people don't want things.... white people have things, and we know what to so with our things. We put it with our stuff"

Come on teeray... I thought u were kinda joking at first... We're not all stupid.

I have been surprised ever since Romney won the nomination about the evangelicals, as up until then, Mormonism was viewed as this backwards cult, then bam, its all good.

To quote him exactly

"Whereby 20 years ago, President Obama would have been roundly defeated by an establishment candidate like Mitt Romney, the white establishment is now the minority....”

"It's a changing country. ... It's not a traditional America anymore. And there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff. They want things. And who is going to give them things? President Obama. He knows it. And he ran on it."

I was joking. But the over reaction by a small portion of white conservatives was over the top
