You cannot be all things to everyone. What we do know is that the msg of political correctness has brainwashed so many ppl to think that is won't be 'cool' to vote against the black president. This sort of nonsense has permeated all levels and demographics to the point where it makes the voters blind to obama's lack of meaningful and beneficial national accomplishments. Long story short "You can't fix stupid" so don't try and mold a candidate that appeals to the generic demographic because it can't be done. We need GOP leaders that are true to themselves, don't flipflop, are decisive and go for the kill in a debate. Voters want to see someone of strong will and character and someone who is consistent.

We could buy into your race theory were it not for other factors.
Last night, three states voted to legalize gay marriage...two states voted to legalize pot...democratic senators won in two otherwise republican states...
Remove the race factor and we still saw left leaning policies trump right leaning policies.

Obama has been consistently liberal, communist and anti america. He is also a consistent liar. With him you know what you're getting. Romney , with his flip floppiness and questionable answers, although possessing quite an impressive resume gave the 'impression' of unpredictability. 'Impressions' are what make the major of voters vote one way or the other, not the facts.
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...
