I’m saying if he had actual credibility as a Conservative instead of being a complete phony and a caricature of what the left lampoons Republicans for being, he would not have lost. Put up a piss-poor RINO and don’t act shocked when he loses. The election was over as soon as he was nominated. It was a total joke from jump street.
How can you say that in the face of record-smashing support from the religious right? By some measures he had more support from the RR - such as % turnout of eligible voters - than Obama did from black voters.
Whatever reason for the loss was, it wasn't due to lack of conservative support.
