34. No, This Was Not A Difference Maker

Romney's team was effective at disenfranchisement of voters by requiring a huge number of minorities to vote a provisional ballot which will likely never be looked at let alone counted. Arizona has been singled out so far as Maricopa County alone had something like 162,000 provisional ballot cast and mostly by Hispanics.

Apparently denial is a hard thing to shake. When Romney pivoted to the center in the debates and became Obama light it really dampened enthusiasm and demoralized the ground game. There simply weren't enough angry white men to elect Romney then look at what happened in Senate races where Democrats won 25 seats to only 8 for Republicans -- a debacle matched only by the Goldwater disaster of 1964.
