On Romney's loss
There's a very good article here offering a possible explanation for why Romney lost-- a perception of GOP extremism that turned off moderate voters. "...even a clumsy candidate might have beaten Obama if not for a simple factor that could not be overcome: the GOP’s growing extremism...the party has to present a more conciliatory and reasonable face to sell itself to swing voters. To do that, it must elevate its own moderate voices, cut loose its theocrats, and liberate itself from the domination of Tea Party know-nothings."
