But Romney won all married couples by 14 points, so clearly, the GOP needs no changes....

Obama got 76% of the gay vote so the GOP needs to start marrying gay people ASAP.

If the vote was restricted to land-owning white men like the founding fathers had intended, the GOP would have won in a complete landslide.

I think arranged marriages would also help. Eric Cantor should introduce that legislation right away.

Clearly, as soon as I find meself a man and settle down in marital bliss with the white picket fence and 2.5 kids, I will suddenly stop caring about other human beings beside my husband, kids, and if there's anything left, maybe myself; girl's gotta have her hair and nails done, ya know?
I'll have mine so I can stop thinking about those friends of mine who can't get married to their partner. In fact, now that I'm married, those gay friends of mine are actively out to destroy my new-found bliss with Mr. Hubby and I must shun them.
I'll have to stop volunteering for the Domestic Violence Shelter, of course. Can't walk in to a DV shelter to counsel battered women with all those love-bruises. I mean, don't get him wrong, he loves me, he was just so damned angry that he got passed over for promotion by a farking negro who was more qualified than him and had worked longer at the company than my hubby, but it's because of that damned 'equality' crap LIBS are spewing nowadays.
That's another thing, those mother farking minorities only wanting MY (hubby's) hard-earned cash! If they want to live like me then they need to go out and get themselves a goddamned job! Of course, I quit my job, Hubby wanted me to you know? But, it's better this way. Have lots of time on my hands.

In fact, the "married couple" vote is proof that same-sex marriage must be stopped. Same-sex couples are likely to cut into the GOP's lead on "married couples".

/Also, legal same-sex marriage reduces opposite-sex marriage rates because wharrgarbl.

The GOP more or less does not hate on Asians. Why did Asian Americans break for Obama slightly more strongly than Latinos? My limited knowledge puts Asian Americans more in line with with Caucasian Americans than Latinos socioeconomically. That would imply that the GOP's economic message is failing with Asian Americans and could also be failing with Latinos, implying that the Latino anti-GOP vote may be only partially linked to immigration policy.

Halfway through election day, the campaign pulled people out of OH to help get out the vote in PA, thinking all they needed was one final push there to win it.

It's just really sad, shocking, full of wondrous farking schadenfreude to look at the post mortem of his campaign. Dick Morris purposely lying about poll results to "boost morale", ORCA not being tested until election day and failing miserably, their counting unanswered door knocks as a yes on polls, the almost non-existent ground team...it's amazing. They really were in their own little world.

My theory is that Asian Americans are very much turned off by the GOP's anti-education stance. I can't back this up, but I wouldn't be surprised if Asian Americans were by and large less religious than Latinos - and definitely less Christian - so there's also a much, much smaller opening for the GOP in terms of social policy.
