I still do not understand how, if this was supposed to be a year of such energized Republican enthusiasm, Romney barely managed to exceed McCain's vote total by 1 million votes. Guy, Hugh Hewitt, and others repeatedly said that the pollsters' D+6 turnout models were rubbish given the enthusiasm on our side. Well, apparently they were not rubbish in light of the actual result. Where did all the supposedly "enthusiastic" Republicans go on election day? Why didn't they show up to vote?
