Axelrod was interviewed on local Chicago news tonight. He said the reason Romney lost was because of the big Republican gains in ‘10. It forced Romney to move to the right to reflect those gains and get the support of the voters. And it turned off those in the middle. HA! I think it had more to do with Axelrod demonizing Romney/Ryan and attracting enough new low information voters to win. Obama couldn’t run on his record so he divided everyone by race, gender, sex, etc. Good luck governing the mess you made, Barry,
Mitt could hardly BE mushy enough to grab the Obama base if they weren’t already fed up with Obama and just wanting something else.
One Obama voter I am forced to deal with said it was because "Romney lies". I asked what he specifically lied about and she said "everything". I couldn't press it further, but I was not aware she was liberal although I knew she was stupid for various reasons.
