How Romney Could Have Turned This Election Into A Landslide

The presidential election has left many Romney supporters wondering where, exactly, their man went wrong.

By forgetting those people, Mitt Romney sort of shot himself in the foot. It's too bad, too; if this election were held pre-suffrage, homeboy would have won by a LANDSLIDE.
