    ...and the sour grapes start.

    It looks like an electoral college landslide - again - and a 2-3% point win in the popular vote despite the obvious difficulties, including the massive popular vote win for Romney in the, ahem, South.

    [/QUOTE]

    Not sour grapes. There is a valid argument for eliminating the electoral college. The President is not just the President of the United States but the President of all the American people. In fact, George W. Bush would have lost the 2000 election if based on popular vote. That would have spared us 8 years of bufoonery. It cuts both ways and does not necessarily favor one party or the other.

    Obama won and I will live with that.... no choice. Electoral College must go... I do not want to hear that so-and-so cannot win if they don't carry WI, OH, or CA. You never hear "if they carry Rhode Island or Maine or Arizona;" a few States do decide the vote and that is plain WRONG.

    Chilli, sorry then. I was lashing out at a percieved stereo-type comment. Romney, Obama = all the same to me. Real Change ain't happening this round.

    2% is hardly a vote of confidence, SMLV.  America consists of 50 states, a few shouldn't determine the race.  Voting was down from 131 mil in 2008 to 117,000. I'll let everyone decide for themselves, why. 

    [/QUOTE]

    2% is not huge, agreed.  But given the economy is still in a very fragile state, and that is the biggest concern of most people, it's a significant approval of Obama and/or repudiation of Romney.  This was the Republican's election to win, and they totally blew it.  I think this could spell a generation in the wilderness for the Republicans, and I couldn't be happier....just for social reasons, I don't think there's a huge difference elsewhere.


    Also, Obama and his supremely large, talented and motivated team focussed on what they needed to win re-election, the EC;  had the popular vote been the clincher they would have used a different strategy and won a bigger share of the popular vote, IMO.

    The problem is, if it was purely popular vote - and that would be my preference - the candidates would never go to 90% of the country....the big empty bits....causing complaints that so-and-so cannot win if they don't carry CA, FL, NY, MI....which, again, suits me!

    Is the rest of the world lib/left/rad/soc/moonbats too? To wit; most of the world  (86% of Canadiens, for example) wanted Obama. Perhaps you should wonder why, and modify your (& the Republican's) wingnut agenda some. Romney & McCain lost because they veered right from their previously centrist view in order to satisfy some wacky constituents to get nominated; understandable, perhaps, but they needed to quickly return to the center afterwards; the running-mate choices in both cases didn't help either.

    i agree, i have many republican friends who did not bother to vote because we all live in NY (predominantly democrat) and their vote for romney "doesn't count". the electoral college totally undermines the voting process and discourages people from going out to vote. if you want to improve voter turnout....... MAKE THE VOTES COUNT!!!!!

     

    i am neither democrat nor republican (voted Obama BTW) but i believe the biggest reason why romney and co. didnt win is because they did a terrible job with speeches. i watched the republican national convention and the speeches that were made were horrendous. half of it was made up BS and the other half was semi-true statements twisted and convoluted to try to discredit Obama. the democratic national convention the speakers actually used facts and (accurate) numbers to support themselves. factor in Mitt flipped positions more than dennis rodman changed hair colors and its no wonder why people were reluctant to give him their vote.

    republicans need to relax. we survived 8 years of bush.... 8 years of Obama should be a walk in the park

    I haven't heard the popular vote results but 303 to 203 is a pretty good testimonial that the Repubs and Dems better start working together and find a way to get us out of the recession that's looming in 2013. Start talking and stop thinking about the next election.

    If they don't settle their differences---who knows what will happen? Could the TV show,"Revolution", actually occur in the US and possibly the world?

    [/QUOTE]

    I don't look for them to start working together at all.  Instead it's going to be more of the same.  The same discussions followed by the same filibusters. 

    My prediction is that the Republicans will immediately start campaining for 2016 by making sure nothing gets accomplished by this Democratic administration.  Then the R's can say in 2016, "Look how little the Democrats have done in eight years."

    As for me I'd rather have "nothing" done than have to face what Romney wanted to do.  Sometimes less is more.
