    Actually, Romney lost because many Christian conservatives didn't come out to vote, preferring a Christian President who was a disaster to what would be America's first Mormon President.

    The thread is about the WaPo/ABC poll, not Republicans saying something stupid or Sterling. Please stay on topic.

    Yeah that must be it, it COULDN'T be because Romney ran a bad campaign, insulted 49% of people, ran as a social conservative, or flopped many times in debates. It couldn't be that, it HAD to be because he was mormon.

    And many people wonder why with ****ty Dems the GOP STILL loses elections.

    So it's not ME keying in on a small detail, it's those keying in on Obama's numbers and equating that to ALL the Dems.
    From my perspective, that detail simply shows that the American people are incredibly inconsistent in their opinions when asked multiple questions. It's seen in lots of polls - they like Obama, but think he's doing a lousy job. They hate congress, but love their representative. Etc. etc.

    That 40-36 detail is meaningless if not taken in the context of the other damning numbers presented.

    Obama’s approval rating fell to 41 percent, down from 46 percent through the first three months of the year and the lowest of his presidency in Post-ABC News polls. Just 42 percent approve of his handling of the economy, 37 percent approve of how he is handling the implementation of the Affordable Care Act and 34 percent approve of his handling of the situation involving Ukraine and Russia.

    You do realize that Donald Sterling is a registered Republican right?

    That's just it, many people that think Obama is doing bad, don't think that the GOP would do better. That's what the votes mean during election time. People thought Obama was bad, but didn't think Romney would do better.

    Many people hate Congress, but think "Their" guy is doing ok. The context IS important and that's what the context says.

    Firstly, it was 47%, not 49%, since you like to focus on minor details. Secondly, he was right since his message of tax cuts would be of no interest to the 47% of Americans who pay no federal income tax.

    Finally, if you don't think that Romney's religion wasn't a significant depressor in Christian conservative voter turnout you're not paying attention.
