How Romney Could Have Won

  

9 members have voted

  1. 1. Is it a good idea to change the rules to make it more likely that all future Presidents will be Republican/conservative?

If votes in every state were awarded by congressional district, President-elect Romney would be planning his inauguration right now.

According to the Cook Political Report, Mitt Romney won about 52 percent of the congressional districts.

Currently, all states except for Maine and Nebraska award electoral votes on a winner-takes-all basis. Long-term, that looks like a worrisome trend for the GOP.

...

If states stop awarding votes on a winner-take-all basis, Republicans could also win — and without necessarily getting more votes. Determining Electoral College voting by congressional districts represents one obvious opportunity for Republicans: In that scenario, the effect of urban Democratic strongholds (such as those Philadelphia precincts where Obama was supported by 99 percent of voters) would be isolated. Instead of shifting the entire state’s electoral votes, those precincts would only influence their congressional districts.

The likelyhood that the Republicans win the Presidency in 2016 or 2020 is more likely than not, if history repeats itself. When was the last time two Democrats were elected to the Presidency back to back?

There isn't a Republican alive who can beat Hillary.

Romney could have won if he got more electoral votes than Obama.

Which would have happened if the electoral votes were awarded by CD.

Well, there are people like Huntsman who have a shot, but they will never get past the primaries.

Huntsman is no Republican.

The Republican's target audience is shrinking. I'd be very, very surprised if they pull off a win in 2016, assuming they don't change their party's ways. The attitude they represent is no longer the attitude of the majority of Americans.

Their target audience is shrinking but they have pretty much ensured a firm grip on the House until at least 2022 (they have a majority in the House even though they received fewer votes for their representatives). That also holds true for state legislatures - they maximized the win in 2010 gerrymandering themselves into the legislative majority for a decade to come. And yes, Democrats would have done the very same thing were the tables turned.

So watch for continued efforts to compensate for their shrinking target audience. And I do not believe that that effort will focus on outreach to a broader audience. The effort will be to shrink the electorate so their minority audience can actually elect a President again.

The Republicans will continue to win their share of localized sate elections, mostly in the deep south, but their over all support is shrinking and will continue to do so unless they find a way to come into the 21st century. This was proven by how Romney had to run two different campaigns in his attempt to win the presidency. He ran one hardline conservative campaign to appease his party and win the Republican primaries, but he had to back off the accelator in order to appeal to the masses, as we know this failed.

The Republican party is a party divided amongst itself right now, modern day Repubs vs. The Tea Party, until they come together and find a common ground, their support group will continue to diminish.

before benghazi & her resent health issues. no. now i think its very possible.

benghazi's a non-issue outside of the fox news media bubble (shrinking every season).

her health, yes. i was kind of rooting for this to knock her out of politics. looks like that's not going to happen. the thought of a return to clintonism is... a little sickening.

A republican could have won this time if he seemed more human and less robotassholey.
