Skip to comments.Adviser: Romney "shellshocked" by loss
Posted on 11/08/2012 3:14:29 PM PST by Arthurio
Mitt Romney's campaign got its first hint something was wrong on the afternoon of Election Day, when state campaign workers on the ground began reporting huge turnout in areas favorable to President Obama: northeastern Ohio, northern Virginia, central Florida and Miami-Dade.
Then came the early exit polls that also were favorable to the president.
But it wasn't until the polls closed that concern turned into alarm. They expected North Carolina to be called early. It wasn't. They expected Pennsylvania to be up in the air all night; it went early for the President.
After Ohio went for Mr. Obama, it was over, but senior advisers say no one could process it.
"We went into the evening confident we had a good path to victory," said one senior adviser. "I don't think there was one person who saw this coming."

The MSM will be ‘massaging’ themselves over the results of last Tuesday for quite some time, I’m afraid.
I have to say, I am usually not surprised by things that happen and I was surprised.
“But . . . it was my turn! I was the annointed one! Just look at my hair and you’ll see what I mean. . . .
We have been “Mugged” “Raped” and “ Cheated” by some of the best/ You will never see a White President Again, The Black and the Young Women who want to protect their “ Free Birth control, will rule from now on.
I feel so bad for him. He gave it his best shot, saying it was in God’s hands.
WE'VE GOT TO HIT THE PHONES HARDER THIS YEAR!!! CONGRESS: (202) 224-3121
I wish the Romney camp hadn’t conceded so early without demanding that all votes be recounted. Something is so wrong here. At least Allen West has the ba**s to fight back.
Is it too late for this? I know, just know there is major fraud here -
My soon to be famous quote on this election: “Why expect honest results with dishonest players?”
Totally agree. He conceded so quickly. Have all the military and absentee ballots been counted? I’d challenge Florida all by itself. Sitting in traffic in very blue Leon County today, I counted 7 Romney stickers just where I was sitting. Nothing about this makes sense.
Events just are what they are. Surprise is in the mind.
I was wrong.
Thinking about the whole ordeal, maybe it's time for retail politics to move away from the "cipher" and doubletalk stage, and into the open talk stage.
I was shellshocked also. absolutely could not beleive the loss. but after hearing about all the stuff the Democrats on election day it’s no wonder.
I truly feel he is a noble man. I feel bad for all of us.
Just one of the many stories I heard about him from people coming forward.
The election was stolen, that is what they are saying without saying it.
But...it isn’t going to be addressed.
It would not have mattered who we ran, the outcome was not in our hands unless we resort to the same tactics.
We won’t win the next time either. They will always be able to throw their trump card and we will accept it.
Amazing if true. The numbers showing Obama was going to win were there for weeks. RCP polls showed it. Nate Silver was showing it. Even our own Freeper jackmercer showed the polls were going Obama’s way for weeks. You can read jackmercer’s stuff right here on FR. Jack’s just some guy doing this at home & he knew more than Romney’s team, wow.
Be happy you have Obama again 4 more years
