Republicans – by the numbers

6 Dec

Mitt-Romeny-05-sizedA month has passed since Mitt Romney’s defeat in the 2012 presidential election.

The Republicans are falling all over themselves trying to find a reason as to what happened.

Some say Romney was a flawed candidate.

Others argue the party’s image sucks.

Then there’s the “Romney campaign was outmaneuvered by the Obama effort”.

And, the country’s changing demographics ultimately doomed the former Massachusetts governor.

The answer is quite simple when you step outside and look it:
It’s all of the above.

There’s a national poll out, and it’s amazing.

Forty-nine percent of Republican voters say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama.

Problem is – ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.

Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States.

Twenty-five percent say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to fifty-six percent who want to stay and nineteen percent who aren’t sure.

A final poll before the election found thirty-nine percent of voters identifying themselves as Democrats and thirty-seven percent as Republicans.

This after-the election poll – a five-point jump in Democratic identification to forty-four percent, and a 5-point drop in Republican identification to thirty-two percent.

Other note of interest from this national poll:

David Petraeus has a 44/30 favorability rating nationally and is seen much more favorably by Democrats (47/25) at this point than Republicans (38/36).

The should have never quit.
