Romney campaign: We lost Florida
Though votes are still being tallied, President Obama is all but assured a victory in Florida because the lion’s share of the outstanding ballots come from Democratic-heavy counties.

Obama leads Republican Mitt Romney by 55,825 votes — or 49.9 percent to 49.24 — but there just aren’t enough votes from Republican areas to allow the challenger to catch up.

Romney’s Florida campaign has acknowledged their candidate lost in Florida as well. Romney already conceded the national race after he lost the other battleground states.

“The numbers in Florida show this was winnable,” Brett Doster, Florida advisor for Romney, said in a statement. “We thought based on our polling and range of organization that we had done what we needed to win. Obviously, we didn’t, and for that I and every other operative in Florida has a sick feeling that we left something on the table. I can assure you this won’t happen again.”

With Florida’s 29 Electoral College votes, Obama will have 332 votes to Romney’s 206.

“We feel we will be the official winner in Florida later today,” Obama campaign manager Jim Messina said. Preliminary results are due into from the counties to the state by noon Saturday. The final results are to be certified Nov. 20.

The numbers in Florida look unlikely to change in Romney’s favor. Consider:

Yup there are more people who want a santa claus president that brings gifts in the form of EBT cards and cheese that are wrapped by the working class elves.

this is what i was hoping wouldnt happen but when you BUY the votes with free s#it your bound to win.I dont even know how it was this close.If i was unemployed and living on the dole i may have voted for Obama as well.I guess its human nature.
This is why the unemployment rate remains so high,to ensure Obozo voters.

Like it or not, the Democrat voters would chose free cell phones over economy.

Many of the Democrats depend on the taxpayers and do not consider themselves as part of the economy.

Its obviously more involved than abortion. It encompasses the entirety of the core Republican platform like religious fanaticism, gay rights, abortion, etc.

The Republican party has a bad reputation to overcome. They need to circle the wagons around minority republicans like Marco Rubio, Allen West, etc if they are going to have a chance at turning around the stereotype of being the party of "old white men out of touch with the real America".

So one party should roll over on its ideals to cater to a changing electorate? wow! I guess the republicans should just call themselves Democrats and switch out the elephant for a jackass at the same time.

PRU - I couldn't agree more. They should've literally BEGGED Rubio to be VP.
He probably still would've said no because he didn't want the stain of a loss on his record when he runs in 2016. I'd be willing to bet on it. Plus his immigration stance was a little too left for some to swallow. I'm MOST stunned (out of all the elections) that West lost his spot. Still trying to figure that one out.

0000 - while agree with you in principal, we'll lose to the DEMS 100% of the time if we let social issues become the focus of the debate....and we did.

Your insistence on continuing to blame the "free sh!t" society won't help the Republicans fix their problems.
Many of the Democrats depend on the taxpayers and do not consider themselves as part of the economy.
This kind of thinking isn't going to help turn around the Republican Party. The results of the election point to a problem with the Republican Party, not with the Democrats.

You're quote above (and many of your posts) tell me that you believe the entire Democrat voter base are living off the teet which just isn't true.

Take a look here as there are some good preliminary demographic numbers within:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/ar...ers_116106.html
it appears to be pegged at about 72 percent white, 13 percent black, 10 percent Latino and 5 percent “other.
that means a LARGE number of "whites" voted for Obama. I didn't vote for him, I voted Romney/Ryan but you better believe that the majority of folks in this forsaken state voted for Obama/Biden and I can tell you the demographics of this state are largely white. The same goes for states like California, Oregon and Washington. There are large white demographics in all of those states that voted for Obama/Biden.
So one party should roll over on its ideals to cater to a changing electorate?
The Republican Party has a LOT of differences when compared to Democrats if you ignore the social BS that they continue to spew.

The democrats put Republicans on the defensive EVERY ELECTION and all they have to do is mention gay rights and abortion. Aren't you tired of defending it? The Republican Party needs to get off of that platform and focus on the real issues.

The bottom line is that the MAJORITY of American voters are INDEPENDENT. You can't expect to garner their vote if you pander to the far right. Obama and the Democrats were experts at pandering to the middle class and the independents and look what it got them.

I believe Allen West likely lost the election because of his association with the Republican party. Same as Scott Brown. People in this state look for the "D" and fill in the circle next to it.

From Patrick Murphy:
“I pledge to be a representative who will work across the aisle, listen to all points of views, and work to end the divisiveness in Congress. Our country faces many challenges, and by working together we will continue to move our country forward.”
I find this saying to be absolutely disgusting and it applies to ALL politicians. They spew this CRAP during the campaigns and then vote STRAIGHT down the party lines, all of them!

Its not about who won the vote it is who swayed the vote and the fact is the takers,that want to sit on their couch in between EBT card swipes at the grocery store swayed the actual liberals that work for a living.

I don't know why you focus on them. They've voted that way for 50 years and they'll continue to vote that way. They are lost and the Republicans can't do anything about it.

they need to focus on those that they can get to vote in their favor and that means they have to eliminate their negative stereotypes. There is no other way to do that other than to come to the center on social issues and remain slightly right of center on the fiscal issues. Period.

You want a Republican to get into office? heres a perfect guarantee to get one in there...

Get Rubio on the "rosetta stone" program till he is able to speak perfect fluent Spanish....then have him campaign and speak spanish in heavy Dem/hispanic areas, then run for Pres in 2016.

...I guarantee he will pull in 80% of the latino vote...

and with the way things are demographic wise, voter id requirements, and voter fraud....instant landslide win.

This would work for most other Republicans running as well, speak spanish...make promises to give them more free Sh$t, destroy any negative evidence about your past(well before running), make some new story up to replace it(and plant evidence to support it) to build empathy.

Once in office, change the law to where the more government aid you get the less and less the ability you have to vote for candidates in higher and higher offices. for example: If your on unemployment, SSI under the age of 50, food stamps AND have a criminal record...then you can only vote for county level elections. AND make it so that you have to have a minimum of a GED or HS diploma to vote at ANY level.

10 years and the USA is #1 again.
showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

Oh by the way,it was hardly a landslide with only a 2-point victory over challenger Mitt Romney.
if Obama would have done away with the Electoral collge voting as he wanted to in 2004 , it would have been nearly a tie.

I don't expect the GOP to turn around. The GOP is done on the national level and will diminish at the state level starting now.
The results of the election point to a problem with the Republican Party, not with the Democrats.
I never indicated the Democrats were to blame for the failures of the GOP. You're read something into my posts you weren't entitled to.
You're quote above (and many of your posts) tell me that you believe the entire Democrat voter base are living off the teet which just isn't true.
It's easy to read that in my posts because I don't put any depth to my posts. My thinking is the mentality of the Democrat Party is geared to increasing taxpayer funded programs. It's easier to say "free cell phones". I am in the opposite frame of mind. Plus, I use tacky comments when describing Democrats.
The bottom line is that the MAJORITY of American voters are INDEPENDENT. You can't expect to garner their vote if you pander to the far right. Obama and the Democrats were experts at pandering to the middle class and the independents and look what it got them.
Ok, think about this. What is important right now in this country? I claim it is the economy. Did Obama indicate any changes to his mode of operation to fix the ecomony? Answer is no...just more in the same direction. I think he is going in the wrong direction.

Now, did the voters care that Obama will continue in the same direction? Seemed to be ok with enough to reelect him. So, when he pandered to them, how did he pander...he just gave his hate the rich, hate the non union, hate the banker, hate the corporations...in other words he appealed to the downtroddenness the Democrats associate themselves with.

My Bottom Line to all this:

The GOP is done. The southern immigration will only increase and forever insure the domination of a one party system. I've always felt we need two fairly equal parties to hold each party in check, but that will be gone soon.
