Can't answer for him, but I think a big part of it is that the GOP's suppression efforts backfired. The Republicans were way too obvious in trying to reduce voter turnout even more or less trumpeting that their lawa would kill the dems.
Well, I think that stirred people up. Some people, maybe a lot of people, who wouldn't vote because they felt dispirited decided to vote because someone was suddenly attacking their right to.
I hate the way Republicans campaign. I just don't understand it. They need serious PR help...I'll be there in January, guys, do not fret.
Also, why is there a stupid rumor that absentee ballots are not counted unless the race is close? I heard that from like 10 people last night and checked it out on the MD State Board of Elections website and all those people were wrong. I would have been pissed. My vote would not have changed any of the results, but I would be pissed even if I hadn't counted for the losing side....
I don't think it is racist to have pride in one of your own, and to believe that he is more likely to understand you and share your values. Blacks turned out in large numbers for Obama. Mormons turned out in large numbers for Romney. It is part of human nature to connect with and support those that share your background. Voting against someone for their race is racist, but voting for someone because their race or religion represents a shared heritage is perfectly reasonable.

I love how you are trying to call the blacks racist in this instance. Mainly because it was shown that Romney needed over 75% of the white vote to win. He isn't getting those either.
Have you ever looked at the racial percentages in this Country ?
Perhpas you should take a close look at the younger white votes, and the female votes. That should tell you all you need to know about the election.
Thanks for the sig LCSF
I agree with Larry in that even though there are some similarities between both parties, there are also important differences between them.
They use different scare tactics, for example. Democrats scare people with failing social safety nets and environmental problems. GOP scares people with socialism, communism, and totalitarianism.
Are you a Paul supporter?
Conservatives cant trust Republicans
Dear god, the level of mis-information from the right is just insane.
Oh, and "Osama" care? What are you, 12 years old?Top Things to Know for Small Businesses
If you have up to 25 employees, pay average annual wages below $50,000, and provide health insurance, you may qualify for a small business tax credit of up to 35% (up to 25% for non-profits) to offset the cost of your insurance. This will bring down the cost of providing insurance.
Under the health care law, employer-based plans that provide health insurance to retirees ages 55-64 can now get financial help through the Early Retiree Reinsurance Program. This program is designed to lower the cost of premiums for all employees and reduce employer health costs.
Starting in 2014, the small business tax credit goes up to 50% (up to 35% for non-profits) for qualifying businesses. This will make the cost of providing insurance even lower.
In 2014, small businesses with generally fewer than 100 employees can shop in an Affordable Insurance Exchange, which gives you power similar to what large businesses have to get better choices and lower prices. An Exchange is a new marketplace where individuals and small businesses can buy affordable health benefit plans.
Exchanges will offer a choice of plans that meet certain benefits and cost standards. Starting in 2014, members of Congress will be getting their health care insurance through Exchanges, and you will be able to buy your insurance through Exchanges, too.
Employers with fewer than 50 employees are exempt from new employer responsibility policies. They don’t have to pay an assessment if their employees get tax credits through an Exchange.
I think the only chance they could pull it off is if the GOP adopted the Green Party's foreign policy and ran far to the "left" to Obama on war and civil liberties.
