Lessons from the loss: Con Bloggers speak (ahem, @johnhawkinsrwn, CA not included? Bygones…)

“1) If you had to pick one reason why Mitt Romney lost, which of the following would it be?
D) He wasn’t aggressive enough in attacking Obama and/or his campaign was too passive in defending against attacks. 48.5% (32 votes)
E) He didn’t inspire voters to turn out for him and/or his get-out-the-vote operation was poor 43.9% (29 votes)
B) He was too moderate overall. 7.6% (5 votes)
A) He was too conservative overall. 0.0% (0 votes)
C) His campaign was too socially conservative. 0.0% (0 votes)

2) Was Mitt Romney your first choice in the Republican primaries or was there another candidate you preferred?

B) There was another candidate that I preferred. 81.8% (54 votes)
A) He was my first choice. 18.2% (12 votes)


This one surprises me. I don’t believe Michele Bachmann would have lost.

3) Are there any of the other GOP candidates that ran against Mitt Romney that you believe could have won or do you think they all would have lost to Obama?

B) All of the candidates would have lost, too. 62.1% (41 votes)
A) At least one of the other GOP primary candidates would have been able to win. 37.9% (25 votes)
