Romney was in shock when Obama was declared the winner according to several news articles
Eight million white voters who stayed home? What happened to all of the ENTHUSIASM that white voters were alleged to have towards the GOP this year? It turns out that any added enthusiasm this year was on the part of LATINOS and for the most part, thety wanted nothing to do with Romney. Latinos of course continue to be an increasing percentage of the electorate.
This year, Obama became the first man who lost the white vote by a double-digit percentage to nevertheless win the election. That's because honky voters constituted a record low 72% of the turnout.
