    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.
    Well, I just showed a very good reason why the Demos will be focused upon more.

    I have it on good authority that he has donated extensively to Democratic politicians. This authority was backed up by another authority and the combined authoritative opinions of these authorities have determined that Donald Sterling shall now and forever more be referred to as Democratic Party chieftain and the godfather of modern day liberalism.

    Yeah, but AL Sharpton is a registered Democrat. So it will balance out.

    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.
    That's funny you claim that "I" focus on a minor detail, yet you claim he didn't get elected because he was a mormon.

    That is true comedy there.

    Romney's religion absolutely kept some of the very serious Christian voters away. Mormonism is unfortunately not well viewed by a lot of Evangelicals and others.

    And per your article here's this:



    Frankly both parties suck and I won't be voting for either of them.

    I agree. Particularly after seeing Obama in action for four years and his positions on same sex marriage and abortion, it is hard for me to believe that with something like a 65%/35% split in the evangelical Christian vote that a large portion of that 35% that Obama got wasn't related to Romney being Mormon. I say this because I remember distinctly back in early 2012 seeing an interview with a Christian leader at one of their conferences claiming that if Romney was the party nominee many would not be able to vote for the Republican nominee. It was flat out religious bigotry, and he was called on it and there was silence from that section of the electorate after that but I believe the sentiment was held by significant numbers and they exercised that sentiment by either staying away or voting for Obama. Like all things, they aren't a monolithic group so it wasn't an absolute - Romney did get 65% of their vote - but if Romney had been Christian I believe his numbers would have been significantly higher and while he still may not have won the gap would not have been so wide.

    Romney's social moderate views also hurt him. Once he said he was pro-choice, that lost him votes. I don't think they voted for Obama instead - just didn't vote for Romney.

    November, and two years from November, will be a test to see if Democrats are still willing to vote against their own best interests yet again.

    Political masochism must be a DNA trait.
