*Sigh* No, the GOP lost the election because, thanks to the ubiquity of modern communications, everyone could see that so-called conservative candidates were really troglodyte reactionaries, who spent more time and effort trying to ban abortion, contraception and gay marriage, and quash unions, than they ever did overhauling budgets, cutting waste, trimming pork, stopping corruption or encouraging the growth of small-to-middlesized businesses. Romney's attempt to look "moderate" only gave the vicious reactionism a visibly thin skin of hypocrisy. Not that everybody unconditionally loves the Democrats. There's good reason that in this election the number of independent and third-party votes doubled from the last one.
