he was jsut declared the winner in FL
This just in: Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney are "shell-shocked" by this unexpected news.
Okay, so it's official now. Not like we couldn't figure that one out.
I believe ORCA was still projecting a Romney landslide in Florida so I hope Karl Rove is around to remind us it ain't over yet.
Lots of precinct results left to unskew.
the ass kicking was even bigger than thought the first night.
There are THOUSANDS of votes republicans refuse to count in Arizona
You know, I can't blame Romney and Ryan for being shocked by the results, because all their advisers and campaign strategists, as well as almost every conservative analyst, truly believed Romney was going to win. Their people on the inside were telling them they were going to win; it wasn't just a dog and pony show to make things look good. What is so shocking is that fact that all these "inside people" misread the electorate so poorly. Based on what they were expecting, they were predicting a Romney win approximately the size of the Obama win. In actual votes, Obama won by 3 million votes, so they expected Romney to win by 3 million votes. That makes them off by 6 million votes or five points. Obama won by about 2.5%. Reverse it and it is a five point difference. That is a lot to be off in the final polling. It's rather horrific to call yourself a pollster and be off by that much.
There's a lot of speculation now that perhaps the campaign was not as surprised as they've claimed they were.
