I’m with Barone on the black turnout numbers: they’re Obama-cenric and aren’t likely a permanent feature of the electoral landscape.

But they have proven to be decisive in the past two presidential elections, and the GOP has to assume the day will come when the black vote gets behind a candidate with this type of enthusiasm again.

Since it won’t ever be for them, the GOP needs to pick off Hispanic and Jewish votes where they can be found. There are siginificant pockets of conservatism within each, and there lies the work to be done.

Is this the same guy who called a *Romney Landslide* last Tuesday? Just asking.

Good food for thought for all those urging the Republicans to “reach out” to those groups now supporting the ‘rats - ‘pubs still have strong support in many areas, and if they ever learn to circle the wagons instead the firing squad, they should be strong......

But Speaker John Boehner has some basis for claiming a mandate, too, as the fiscal cliff negotiations begin.

The Republican House probably received as many votes as the President. Indeed, may have received more than his 50% "majority".

Boehner does have every bit the mandate that the President might claim to have. Here's hoping he recognizes it...

Cheating turned out the vote.

VOTER FRAUD!
