Blacks did not turn out for Obama in the numbers that they did in 2008 and even with the 2012 vote count for Romney he still could have won if he would have aggresively went after the disdain for same-sex marriage in the black community.

Blacks are the least of your worries. The under 30 crowd turned out in strong numbers for Obama. . but the two groups that made a huge difference were latinos and US women who voted for Obama by 55%. In fact, if you look at the demographics, US women took out several other US Congressmen, like Todd Akin in MO, Mourdock in IN, Bilbray in CA and good ol' Allen West in FL. At what point in time does the GOP figure it out?

Latinos do not favor same sex marriage and they are socially conservative. The GOP needs to agressively communicate their message to them.

Blacks do not favor same sex marriage either they are also socially conservative. Many of them did not vote for Pres. Obama because of that issue. There may have been an emotional vote by many Blacks for Obama in this election, but there will not be one in play for 2016. The Republicans should not write off any group. If and when they win they have to govern all the people, so it will be best to know the needs of all. That's what good leaders do. I believe many Black and Hispanics began to look at the Republican party because of President Bush, who was not afraid to reach out them.

Let's not sugarcoat it: we got our teeth kicked in on Tuesday. Sure, we added governorships and held our ground in the House, but we went backwards in the Senate and lost to an out-of-touch, incompetent, petty man who centered his campaign around Mitt Romney's bank account and Big Bird. We didn't get beaten by Bill Clinton in a great economy; we got beaten by another Michael Dukakis in the midst of a terrible economy. On the upside, if people have ever wondered what Jimmy Carter's second term would have looked like, then they're about to find out.
