I do think that a lot of it was just that the social conservatives either decided that they could not support a Mormon or that Romney did not share their values, and they just decided not to vote. If that is the case, then they just committed political suicide. Romney’s defeat really marks the end of social conservatism as a viable political movement. In the next 4 years, Obama will appoint at least 2 and maybe 3 Supreme Court justices, all of which will be of the hard left variety, like Sotomayor and Kagan. Once he’s done, the liberals are going to steamroll over the entire conservative social agenda, flattening it like a pancake, and constitutionalizing the entire liberal social agenda. I suppose once that happens, people like Ryan and Santorum can talk about conservative social issues if they want, but there won’t be anything they can do to implement them.

My husband, who was raised Baptist says he remembers the most mild-mannered ministers of his youth absolutely castigating the Morman religion from the pulpit. I don’t know if that is still the case everywhere, but a few years ago our local Baptist minister went on a tirade from the pulpit against the Mormans.

My husband thinks some Baptists could not bring themselves to pull the lever. I don’t know if the internals showed that.

Since that didn't happen, your posts are nonsense.

Romney couldn't win any of the 2008 Obama voters is what happened.
