1. That's better than Mondale and McGovern

Not much worse than Dukakis.

3. I love that their takeaway from a stunning loss is that they need to keep their racist & sexist...

policies but reach out to women and people of color with their inclusive message. Let's not forget about the young people! Same policies that take away their health insurance, college loans, Pell grants and control over their bodies but don't focus on that stuff and maybe they won't notice!

4. It wouldn't be much different if only white women could vote.

New Mexico, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, Colorado, Maryland, and New Jersey would have flipped from blue to red. CNN doesn't have exit poll data from Florida but my guess is that state would have gone to Romney had only white women voted.

5. Why do you say "white men"?

How different would it look with just "whites". Answer: not much at all if any.

6. Add New Hampshire, Connecticut, Iowa, probably Rhode Island

and possibly Delaware and Hawaii (the last 3 didn't have exit polls, so we can't be sure, but RI is a probable, due to the margin of victory and the proportion of whites), for whites-only votes. See http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=237160 and http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1251&pid=232909 .
