Remember one of the main themes cited in exit polling: although the majority of voters agreed the country was going in the wrong direction, and felt that Governor Romney would better be able to rectify matters, they did not vote for him because they felt he couldn't understand the problems of "people like them". While I don't agree fully (I don't think the Governor would have been as successful as he has been, had he been incapable of understanding those of us who are just ordinary folk), I can see where the image of him as aloof and of "the elite" would have come. The sad thing is, that most of the GOP candidates for presidency this year would have resonated with these doubtful people more than Governor Romney did. ...
