Republicans are still discussing why Romney lost the recent election. He lost, not because he didn’t receive more votes from his base, he lost because he received fewer votes period. End of story. Republicans claim that Romney received the majority of the votes cast by real Americans. Perhaps he did if you define real Americans as those who voted for Romney. That’s a really circular argument if I have ever heard one. Rather than reforming the party, the GOP are currently trying to find ways of increasing the number of real Americans who vote and decreasing the number of votes by other Americans.
