    The Repubs -- maybe not Mitt himself -- keep alienating women and minorities. That makes it a lot harder to win. There's a lot Americans agree on but the bozos on the left and the right prefer to focus on wedge issues that don't affect most.
    Tea Party(ies) candidates did better than big government GOPers.

    But, in general, I think demographics have doomed federalism and limited federal government ideas. The only thing left is collapse..., and then re-birth.

    Depends on who's polls though.

    A lot of "conservatives" had this one in the bag - especially toward the end.

    I got caught up in it a little, but at the end of the day (before the voting began) I dismissed what I considered unreliable predictions and considered Obama the likely winner.

    It all goes back to the old mainstay - people will latch on to what they want to believe, not what is likely or credible.
