In 2004 did you know that John Kerry might very well lose to Bush? [View all]

I ask this because it appears most Republicans from the grassroots up to the Senior most advisers and Romney and Ryan themselves were and still are in a state of shock that they lost. It confounds me that they didn't even seem to have anticipated the possibility of losing - even though the polls, the non-partisan statisticians, the financial derivative markets and just about everyone else saw Obama as having a strong advantage.

IN 2004 the consensus of expert opinion really did see it as a toss-up. But a toss-up of course means that we might lose and the other side might win.
