I was lazy when I made my map. I'm not even sure how 333-205 is possible lol. But yeah, it would have been 332-206 had I been looking when I made it. I thought Obama would win Florida, lose NC, and the rest of them were easy calls.

I was kind of thinking that you just made a mistake since that was a weird number unless you gave Obama nebraskas 2nd district. I only had Florida wrong. There were only 4 close states that were tough calls in my mind.

I just realized something

the right is as shocked that Obama won a second term just as liberals were shocked when George Bush won a second term.

the right is about as discouraged people couldn't relate to a rich socialite like mittens the same way the left blah blah john kerry.

the backlash I see from the right mirrors the backlash we saw from the left 8 years ago.

if history has any tell, conservatives will win the election in 2016 given they move back to the center a bit

i think the sense of shock is different. liberals were more shocked because they couldn't believe that people would be stupid enough to vote for him again, not that it wasn't possible. conservatives are more shocked because they earnestly believed that romney had the mathematical certainty of winning.

I think the right feels the same way, the polls are skewed because of what they heard at rallies, and democratic enthusiasm was indeed down, who would be dumb enough to vote for the (insert conservative talking points here) blah blah socialist president?

but the polls in 2004 indicated that bush had a good chance of winning, ergo liberals/democrats knew that it was a possibility they would lose but were more surprised that bush was still that popular. republicans/conservatives in 2012 were saying romney was going to win and many of them didn't appear to consider an obama victory as likely at all.
