Gentle Readers, Dear Mr. Glass, On the contrary, Sir, we just our xxx-kicked, like in 2008! Michael Steele took a defeated Republican Party from the 2008 elections and organized the largest electoral victory in U.S. history in 2010. Then, we dumped him! Many TownHall columnists advocated dumping Mr. Steele. Swallow some pride! Mr. Steele knows how to win elections! Lets put him back in charge, or at least in a position of serious authority in the Republican Party. Sincerely, John Lepant Brighton CO
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...
