The only ones left who even pretend that election was valid are the Democrat election officials who perpetrated that fraud against the American people. Anybody who wanted to voted when they wanted, where they wanted and as often as they wanted. It was no more a legal expression of the will of the people than a scratch off lottery, and everybody, Everybody, EVERYBODY knows it. Worse yet, is the notion being passed like gas, that Democrats represent some kind of new majority among Americans. That crowd you saw at the Democrats National Apology, including every single speaker, was nothing more than a crew of spokesmodels you can purchase to appear at any birthday, private function or corporate conclave, at a price.
Lukewarm. That's the feeling I get from the election numbers.

Turnout was apparently down, at least as a percentage of eligible voters. The president was re-elected by a reduced margin. The challenger didn't inspire the turnout surge he needed.

Every re-elected president since Andrew Jackson has won with an increased popular vote percentage. Barack Obama didn't. He won 53 percent to 46 percent in 2008. His numbers as I write are 50 percent to 48 percent over Mitt Romney. That could go up to 51 percent to 48 percent when California finishes its count, which took five weeks in 2008.

Obama owes most...
