About Mandates...

In 2004 Bush won the presidential election by a margin of 286 - 251, and a popular vote margin of 50.7% - 48.3%*. The media pretty much unanimously called that a mandate**.

Here are Obama's 2012 results again if you want a comparison:

EC: 332 - 206
PV: 50.6% - 47.8%

Just a friendly reminder.
