This article is needs to be investigated. Obama lost 4.5 million votes in 2012 compared to 2008. Romney secured 1 million more votes than McCain. However, the 2010 mid-term were historical numbers. The GOP received 2.5 million more votes than the Democrats received in 2006. Romney only got 16 million more votes than the GOP 2010 congress, but Obama got 28 million more than the Democrats.
The article itself or the numerical statements of the article?
Just testing my understanding of your statement ;)
