THE REPUG VOTING BASE

NO DARKIES, NO VAGINAS, NO OPEN HOMOS.

WHITE SOUTHERN MEN
Blacks choose not to vote Republican for the most part.

If 10% of the women who voted for Obama had voted for Romney there would have been a majority of women for Romney.

Gays are probably no going to vote for Republicans in majority numbers, but some do.

Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania. All major Northern sates that voted over 45% for Romney.

Alaska, Wyoming, Idaho, North Dakota, South Dakota and Nebraska. All Northern states that suppoted Romney.

Isnt it possible that Obama was more charming than Romney, or that people trusted Obama more than Romney.

Just like People Liked and Trusted Bush more than Kerry and Gore.

And in the next election someone is going to win. It may be Republican and it may be Democrat.

Just like afer 2004 people were talking about an unbatable Republican majority, people are not trying to sell it the other way.

Americans vote the man and not the party for President at least.

The Republicans do not need to change.

When you guys run Hillary or some other unlikable candidate and we have Rubio or Christie smahing them in the likable ratings you guys will lose.

And since 2000 we have pretty much controlled Congress. So we cannot be so out of touch. We control most of the state houses and are most of the Governors.

If you take Obama out of the equation Republicans did ok in 2012.

Obama is a force we didnt understand. He raised people's hopes in a way we have no seen since Reagan, and he was on our side.

That is part of the reason that we all thought you were going down.

We were looking at a very static analysis of Obama's performance.

America was looking at the promise of the future, and Obama beat Romney.

By losing seats in the House and Senate, yep they did okay.

They had a large edge in the house and were close in the Senate.

They still have a large lead in the House and are close in the Senate. Nothing chaged.

They did OK. Would have liked to have won the Senate, but that would have been better than ok.

It would have been weird for the house not to drop a bit. So again it was ok.

We still control most of the state houses and Governors.

How can we be this out of touch dying party and have so much control?

And I know I wasnt around here at the time, but I siad the same thing after Bush won his 2nd term and some people were saying the Dems were dying.

America likes the balance.
