A prediction by Barone. How incredibly valuable. Michael: does the word "momentum" mean anything to you? Which direction do you think the demographics are going? No matter how you slice it, the Republican Party is the party of White Men. You will never gain the loyalty of minorities as long as your agenda is to further the dominance of power of White Men. Tax cuts and trickle down DO NOT WORK; it's been proved time and again, and it only serves to maintain the current status quo of power. No amount of attempting to get the Republican message to resonate amongst the disempowered will ever resonate. Ever. Ever. So, absent a White Renaissance of population, the Republican Party is out of power for good.

I've been very down on the results. There's reason to not be so pessimistic.
Take a look at the 2008/2012 comparison at http://ace.mu.nu/archives/335122.php
It shows omugabe lost ground in all but 5 states from 2008.
The map was "much redder" this time. In other words, he edged romney out.
omugabe is trying to be FDR II. FDR won re-election in 1936 by 60.8% of the vote.
omugabe used big data analysis to win by whiskers. This tide can still turn.

Putup:

If you believe, as I do, that the state of the economy is a lingering legacy of George W Bush's incompetence, and that Obama slowed the downturn and that our current slow rate of recovery is the more healthy approach, then it's LOGICAL that Obama would lose some support. Most people don't know enough about economics and the screwing we took under Reaganomics. This means that Obama's reelection is even MORE profound and telling. If the economy continues to improve over the next four years, Hillary's landslide in 2016 will be of epic proportions.

Only until we get the voter fraud committed by the the Democrat Communists and then the Republicans will once again bring this country back from the sewer to greatness!

No, Obama won mostly by running away from his record and lying about his opponent, with a big assist from his toadies in the sarcastically labelled "mainstream" media.

A funny thing happened as I was looking at the political map of this year's presidential election: It began to look like the map of the presidential election of 2004.

I'm not talking about the superficial similarity, the fact that in both elections an incumbent president beat a challenger from Massachusetts by a 51 to 48 percent popular vote margin.

I'm talking about the fact that the large majority of states voted just a little bit more Democratic in 2012 than they did in 2004.

Enough to give 2012 nominee Barack Obama 332 electoral votes, far more than 2004 nominee John...
