Multiple reasons Romney lost. MSM for one. An opponent willing to lie and keep on lying and attacking a street fighter vs Mr nice guy who had shots at a knock out and didnt take them. (Benghazi for ex.) Romney positions as Gov. The RNC totally alienating the libertarians at the convention they could have given them their 15 minutes of fame add their votes to the totals where would you be? Subsequent Ron Paul never backed Romney kept that alive. RNC failure to back Tea Party candidates who won the nomination. Bottom line how'ed that big tent concept work out for you. Obama played to his base. RNC played to independents.
