And you guys SCOFFED at Nate Silver! Who got all his predictions correct! 100% even Florida and Virginia by using something you guys ripped him for... MATH! Honestly, when the GOP figures out that FOX News is the biggest propaganda machine in the country and only serves the interest of a select few, then the GOP will MAYBE one day win an election again. Also keep in mind, the GOP has lost the last 6 elections in the popular vote. 6 elections and you guys still trot out old played out ideas that don't work. Get a clue and stop watching Fox News. You'll be better for it.

They don't want to face the truth. They will harp on the "voter fraud" issue to make themselves feel better, because how could they get it so wrong.

Bush LOST the popular vote in 2000. Now if there was one "stolen" election, it was that one! He barely won the popular vote in 2004. More or less by the same margin as Obama winning this one. They will be rehashing this for the next 4 years to try and make them feel better. If they didn't see this coming they are just delusional.

100% correct, except it's 5 of 6. Bush won the popualr vote against Kerry.

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...
