There was nothing to stop those millions of conservatives from going to the polls and voting for the Republicans for Senate regardless of Romney.
Indiana voters gave Governor-elect Pence and candidate Romney a solid majority while electing a Democrat Senator ,then elected Republican super-majorities in the state legislature bur put a Democrat in charge of Indiana education. Just try to make sense of that !!!!
Evidently one of severl things happened:the conservatives don’t exist in the numbers we hoped,or the conservatives were lulled by over-exuberant polls and predictions into thinking they didn’t need to vote, or the candidates were rejected by the conservatives,or the conservatives have given up.
I am AFRAID that evn many so-called conservatives don’t really want abortion outlawed just in case “something happens....in their family...”,AND that even self-identified conservatives have grown accustomed to getting “free” government goodies.
I went to support Cruz and cast my ballot for him. I don’t think we did a very good job of communicating just how important the Senate races were - and I think that when Romney turned voters off they were saying, “a pox on both their houses”.
