There was every concession made to everyone BUT conservatives, and there was far and away enough evidence that independents and conservatives wanted to see ANY sign of backbone to this side. Romney was hampered by his advisors (Karl Rove should be tried and hung for treating campaign elections like thrilling daredevil challenges just to feed his personal adrenaline) and by moderation.
Reagan did not win by inclusion..people were drawn to his truth.
This election had no truth, ultimately proved by electronic voting and zero identity at polling places providing real prospects of fraud.. If first graders can write their own name on tests ,adults can vote on paper and people CAN demand that these votes be counted IN FULL VIEW.
