The polls on the conservative websites were positive for Romney and the MSM were positive for Obama. There were flaws in the polls on the conservative sides.

The MSM is liberal. Obama went on TV talk shows, and articles on him were written positive about him in magazines and newspapers whereas it was negative when it came to Romney.

The future for a Republican President does not look too bright because conservatives will be the minority instead of the majority

Rich Beeson, on the campaign's strategy: "We won independents and held the base....
