More to the point, Willard never had the credibility to get the Conservative vote.

More to the point, Willard never had the credibility to get the Conservative vote.

What are you talking about? The base turned out big time for Romney. He had record-smashing turnout from the religious right:

_____________________________________________________________

Evangelicals and Church Going Catholic Voters Favor Romney by Wide Margins

-snip-

Frequency of attendance at religious services revealed a significant gap in support for the candidates, with those attending "weekly" at 39 percent Obama, 59 percent Romney, 'occasionally" at 55 percent Obama and 43 percent Romney and "never" at 62 percent Obama and 34 percent Romney.

A second national poll of those who cast ballots Tuesday commissioned by the Faith and Freedom Coalition reported that white evangelicals voted roughly 78 percent for Romney to 21 percent for Obama. Romney's performance among evangelicals represented a net swing of 10 percent over John McCain's performance in 2008. It also reported that white evangelicals had increased to 27 percent of voters.

Catholic voters who regularly attend Mass broke 67 percent for Romney to 32 percent for Obama, representing a swing of 35 percent in the direction of the GOP since 2008.

Even a true conservative won’t be president again IMO. Too much dem & media corruption...

Plus I know a bunch of so-called normal people who always vote dem. You can’t even talk to them. I’m surrounded by liberals & totally sick of arguing with them.

They all think great things are going to come from obamacare. Even my sister thinks that way. You have to talk sports or weather on Christmas to avoid tension.

My cousin, whose husband is a PHD, wrote on FB:
“I like Barack Obama.”. They’re in their 60’s.
