Romney would have won if he got the same number of white votes that McCain did in 2008. Obama didn't get out his 2008 vote (10 million short), and Romney didn't get out the 2008 GOP white vote (three million short). The GOP doesn't need to pander to hispanics. The GOP needs to register and get out white voters, including lazy and uninvolved Evangelicals. They should have less reason for religious bigotry in 2016, a mormon won't be running. Let's hope that bigotry doesn't extend to catholics. Rubio and Ryan are catholics.
