And in those swing states, Democrats are in charge of the voting. How convenient.
We no longer have honest elections in the USA. Citizens will have to find other ways of dealing with the business of governing their states.
Those who were never polled were those McCain voters that didn’t show up. Asking “Republicans why and citing 4 reasons which might apply. That would give US the answer, partricularly those who voted for McCain but didn’t vote this time.
I’ll bet the majority felt “it made no difference” and the 2nd most reason they would cite “Romney was going to win anyway and my vote wasn’t needed”
Democrats were not in charge of voting in Ohio. I live here.
We have a republican Governor, Secty of State, Treasurer, House, Senate, and Supreme Court. And the Secty of State runs our elections.
So, there are no excuses in Ohio other than extremely, lousy ground game. They thought a ground game was phone calls. Maybe once upon a time, but ground game now is identifying your supporters and getting an early ballot in their hands or driving them to the polls.
Anything else, any other kind of ground game is just a fantasy based on a hope.
