Had the thumb-sucking, narrow-minded bigots who call themselves "evangelical Christians" not sat this out because they'd rather have a Muslim than "a cultist" in the white house, the internal pollsters' assumptions would have been accurate. I hold NO ONE in contempt right now more than the so-called "Christian right" who cannot work with others and do not know how to form coalitions. They are beneath that contempt, actually.

illbay, has anyone told you lately boy.....You are full of sh!t....

I'll guarantee the Southern Baptist preacher at my church did everything shy of offering Mitt Romney by name

And, I personally don't refer to those dope smoking whackjobs who voted for Gary Johnson as, "Christian right".....

Many of the "Christian right" I align with attended TEA party events and contributed lots of money towards an effort to get Mitt Romney elected.

Your furry needs to be aimed at ACORN promoted voter fraud and Libertarians.....Those are the scum who destroyed this nation.

"We’ve also had enough of this dumbed-down conservatism. We need to stop being simplistic, we need to trust the intelligence of the American people and we need to stop insulting the intelligence of the voters.”

Calling on the GOP to be “the party of ideas, details and intelligent solutions,” the Louisianan urged the party to “stop reducing everything to mindless slogans, tag lines, 30-second ads that all begin to sound the same. “

I don't think that's correct. My understanding is "evangelicals" voted 80/20 for Romney (a higher percentage than Mormons that voted for Romney) and their turnout was pretty good.

In light of the revelation that Mitt Romney was "shell-shocked" by his loss last week, I've been pretty tough on the job performance of his campaign's internal pollsters, who clearly missed the mark -- resulting in costly tactical decisions down the stretch:
 

These analyses [of the "expand the map" strategy] make sense, but only within the context of the campaign truly believing that they were safe in other crucial must-have states -- a cataclysmically wrong assumption. When I stopped by Romney headquarters in Boston back in September, Newhouse said his team was anticipating a...
