59. Obama had the ground game

I think that, plus early voting this time around, made a big difference. The Obama team went under the assumption that it would be a close race and looked for new voters everywhere.

The networks absolutely told their views what they wanted them to hear. Fox told theirs that Romney had it in the bag, and ABC-CBS-NBC told theirs that it was too close to call, neck-and-neck, a squeaker, etc etc.

But why is Bob Sheiffer still saying it? Why is he asking if Obama really has a mandate?
