O won because the establishment gop elite rammed their candidate down our throats. Mitt was not my first or second choice or any choice for that matter, but I voted for him anyway. Anythin to get this parasite out of the white house. People did not vote for Mitt they voted against Obama. unfortunately the dems fought tooth and nail to make sure they got their vote out, hence the ultra long lines. People were saying this is a good thing with the turn out, well I looked at the televised long lines and knew it was bad for the right when I saw who was standing in lines wrapped around corners and voting places still voting hours after the polls closed. The repubs stayed home and did not vote because they truly had no say in who our nominee was.
