Now 51-48. This happens to be the same margin by which George W. Bush won the popular vote in 2004.

Ouch, that has got to hurt for the Cons. Even the hope that Romney could win the popular vote has all but faded away for them.

Funny thing about anyone who would want to get rid of the electoral college, Democrats still fair well in the popular vote and usually come out on top...if you don't count Kerry who was a poor choice for president by the Democrats, kind of like Romney.
