You're wrong in the "our politics" reason for the loss. Romney didn't lose because of Big Bird and Binders. No one cared about that. He lost because he demonized the electorate and because he continued to let false ads run about the auto industry. I'm from Toledo. People in Ohio know what's going on in the auto industry. You can't tell them that Jeep is going to move Ohio jobs to China when it's not true and expect people to trust you. Parse that ad however you want, it comes out to: "He thinks we're stupid." People don't vote for you when you insult them. Same with the 47% comment. You all may agree with that, but essentially, you can't have that kind of disdain for the American people and expect them to vote for you.
