Forget Demographic Shift; Millions of Republicans Stayed Home for 2012 Election

Posted by FactReal on November 8, 2012

Millions of Republican voters, who had voted for moderate Bush and RINO McCain, didn’t do the same for moderate Romney or simply stayed home.

Tara Servatius from the American Thinker wrote yesterday:

First, Barack Obama’s re-election showing was actually pretty unimpressive for a guy whose philosophies voters have supposedly adopted. As of this writing on Wednesday, Obama’s vote total stood at an unimpressive 60,119,958. That’s about what John Kerry got in 2004 (59,028,444). President George W. Bush actually did far better than Obama in his 2004 reelection quest, posting a vote total that was about 2 million higher (62,040,610) than what Obama got on Tuesday. That’s hardly a remarkable finish in a country with a population that has increased. In fact, it’s a decline of 9 million votes from Obama’s 2008 total.

Had Romney (57,425,441) done as well as McCain did in 2008 (59,934,814), he and Obama would have run neck and neck, virtually matching each other’s vote totals. That’s hardly the stuff of demographic ruin.

The question Republicans and conservatives need to ask is not why voters showed up for Obama, whose turnout wasn’t exactly extraordinary, but why millions of their own voters, people who had pulled the lever for Bush and McCain, didn’t do the same for Romney or simply stayed home.

[…]

Is it possible that Republicans and conservative-leaning independents just weren’t that wild about the guy?

Romney, you’ll remember, was not exactly popular with the GOP base through two primaries — the first of . . .
