That Had to Hurt

This isn't that much of a surprise. In fact, the premise is a bit misleading. The Mormon Church has grown significantly in the last 8 years and in doing so, it has diversified as well. So, while Mitt may have lost to W in terms of percentage, he received far more votes because of his religious background and, if we consider the relatively small difference between the two outcomes, actually did a good job appealing to a more heterogeneous (and thus likely more liberal) voting bloc.

I'm not a Mormon or a Romney-supporter, but I think this article is unfair and misleading, despite relying on fact.

Sorry, Dan. I'm with you on pretty much everything else you say...

"Preliminary figures suggest fewer people voted this year than four years ago, when voters shattered turnout records as they elected Obama to his first term.

In most states, the numbers were even lower than in 2004, said Curtis Gans, director of American University’s Center for the Study of the American Electorate. Every state but Iowa is showing a smaller turnout than in 2008".
