No Mandate: Obama Lost Ground With Key Demographics

Obama gained Hispanic votes. Romney has only himself to blame. Romney could have hammered Obama on Fast & Furious where hundreds of Hispanics were murdered with weapons that the Obama administration let "walk" into Mexico. Obama then personally intervened to prevent justice from happening for these victims or for holding those in his administration responsible. Where were Romney's ads with Hispanic mother's, wives, and children demanding justice? Romney is an idiot.
There are important lessons to be learned from the results of the 2012 presidential election about the shape of the electorate and how Americans voted. And it might not be what you think.

Overall, many, many fewer Americans turned out to vote. 2008 was a high-water mark for turnout in what may have been an anomaly. President Obama received seven million fewer votes nationwide, but it wasn't a case of the President losing voters to his Republican challenger - Mitt Romney won more than one million fewer votes than John McCain as well.

Some of the much-vaunted demographic advantages...
