I voted for Obama because the GOP frightened the crap out of me. I don't know if that's "voting my conscience" or not, but as long as my vote counted, it shouldn't matter.

I voted. The candidate I chose won. Get over it.


(By the way, it's conscience, but I was conscious when I voted!)

Romney's a loser. He LOST the election. His family's good at losing elections.

Romney didn't win. Romney gave a speech congratulating the President on his win.

Republicans didn't like Romney in the primary's, his loss should've been expected.

Romney was a loser back in 2008 as well. No one liked him then and he dropped out.

Nate Silver mathematically predicted Romney would lose with a fairly high degree of certainty.

Bingo. Romney got 51% of the popular vote in the primary cycle. Not exactly a stunning endorsement from the members of his party considering his only opposition in the last 15 primaries was a candidate whose presence was ignored by both the party and the media.

My memory is beginning to fail me, but I remember posting somewhere that the poorest states voted Republican. The states that receive the highest amount of government assistance are red states. This is a fact. Examples are Texas, Alaska, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama.

Also, here is a map of the states showing who pays the most federal income tax. The people who pay the least live mostly in Republican states.

As you can see, Romney’s geographic base is in states where large numbers of households pay no net federal income tax.

"God" (and fear of) usually trumps self-respect and self-interest.

Your map only shows percentages of the population, not raw numbers. And most of the people I've spoken to who wre outraged by the comment aren't part of the 47%, so there's the "advocacy vote," if you will, that has to be considered as well.
