I teach school and nearly every former student that I talked with around election time mentioned the posibility that their student loans might be forgiven. Many of their parents had the same sentiment. That was one hell of a block of votes. Add this to the free healthcare, contraceptives, Obamaphones, government workers, and others that depend on the government in one way or the other makes it nearly impossible to beat a democrat. Add to this the hispanic vote that was bought and the nearly 100% support from the black community and you have a country in trouble.
