Let me make this very clear for the far left, that lives in their own self-created unreality, that screams conspiracy and says we wear tinfoil hats every time we tell the truth about what happened in the 2012 election: We did not lose the 2012 election, the far left and the Obama Regime and campaign stole the election through massive cheating. We won the election fair and square, and they stole it.
This is important, because, for one, it's the truth. Secondly, it's necessary that we face this truth so we know what the problem is that needs to be solved before the next election for president in 2016. Vote suppression and voter fraud are the issues, and the former needs to be addressed by not falling what caused 5-7 million potential Romney supporters to stay home on election day in 2012, and the latter needs to be solved by reforming the election system. That includes voter ID laws and other reforms.
The other reason is, if we don't face the truth and know what the real causes of the election results were, than we won't solve the real problems that need to solved. It isn't only a matter of having a better candidate and strategy in 2016, when what we had would have won if not for the cheating in 2012 even if it wasn't the best campaign, candidate, and strategy employed. It is also a matter of being aware of the vote suppression and voter fraud strategies employed by the other side and making sure those strategies will not work in 2016 and beyond.
Ironically, the far left makes an argument that mirrors that. They say, we on the right should ignore the vote suppression and voter fraud, because if we blame our election loss on those factors, we will not make improvements in candidate selection and political strategy necessary to win in 2016. That, like all the other “advise” the far left gives to the GOP, is a convenient argument they make, because clearly they aren't in favor of the right winning and the last thing they would do is give sincere and useful advice to the GOP that would help Republicans win. They make this argument, in hopes it will stick, to convince us to ignore the very vote suppression and voter fraud that caused our side to lose, for one simple reason. The far left wants to employ those strategies again and again and again to steal future elections.
Oddly enough, this argument finds some supporters among those who portray themselves as the “more rational and responsible” folks on the right. Last night was found a discussion from a right wing message board where some character named Ken in Washington state was making this argument, that the GOP would never win again if we simply blame the election loss was blamed on those factors. Most of the others in the discussion refuted this argument and accused him of being “owned” by the far left.
But now there is more evidence that the electorate last year was moving in a very conservative direction, and this suggests that is likely the election was stolen. An electorate that was as conservative as the 2012 electorate was, simply put, could not reelect a far left liberal Democrat like Barack Obama, who had such a weak economic record to run on, without the election being stolen. The electorate was far too conservative for this to happen. While the electorate would have more easily rallied behind a clear and consistent Reagan conservative, which Mitt Romney was not, Romney ran on sufficiently conservative enough ideas to win that election. But that should not be misunderstand, to mean that he should not have run as a more consistent and clear conservative candidate.
Here is the evidence, and it's clearly NOT from a right wing source, for you out there among the far left that are quick to want to impeach any information coming from a source that you all deem to be “right wing.” The source is the “Monkey Cage” blog about politics on The Washington Post, in which analysis of public opinion surveys on the issues of the day are analyzed by political scientist James Stimson for the purpose of measuring the “policy mood” of the American electorate. The analysis involves compiling all the public polls, where voters are asked their positions on specific issues, and measuring a “mood” of the public, in an ideological way, that shows how liberal or conservative the electorate is during certain times.
The chart above shows the directions the electorate moved in over the last 60 years, from 1952 to 2012. The blue lines are the years that Democrats held the White House, and the red lines are during the years of Republican presidents. The higher the line goes, the more conservative the electorate is during that point in time.
It is interesting to note that the electorate grows more conservative while the Democrats hold the White House, and they generally get less conservative while Republican presidents are in office. This happened to some degree after the GOP won control of both houses of Congress in 1994. As Rush Limbaugh explained it, he said that we conservatives stopped educating and stopped getting out the message after the 1994 election due to a perception that we had won and the American public is on our side now. That is true. I think the truth is, quite often when Republicans are in power, the conservative movement doesn't continue the information campaign and efforts to educate the public as effectively as it should.
The explanation for the upturn in conservative mood when Democrats hold the White House is more easily explained. That happens because the public sees what liberalism is all about when the White House is run by liberal/progressive policy, and they don't like what they see.
But all of that is beside the point of discussion here. The graph shows the most conservative the electorate was during the 60 year measured here is in 1952, when the United States was coming out of the Great Depression and all the hard left socialist policies that Franklin Roosevelt implemented during his 12 years in office as president. Clearly living through those years would cause the electorate to move steadily to the right.
But the next most conservative electorate, just slightly more so than the 1984 electorate that gave Ronald Reagan a historic landslide reelection in 1984, was the 2012 electorate. Four years of Barack Obama and his hard line socialist policy shocked the electorate in growing increasingly conservative. This lead to the 2010 election which Republicans gained more than 600 legislative seats across the country, including a majority in Congress.
The electorate grew even more conservative from 2010 to 2012. But the voter turnout in the action election didn't reflect this. That is because the combination of vote suppression (leading 5-7 million conservatives to stay home on election day rather than turning out to vote for Mitt Romney) and voter fraud in key swing states (Romney lost 5 key swing states by fewer than 700,000 vote collectively, a number of votes easily gained through voter fraud) created the election result we say in 2012.
This analysis shows there is no other way to explain this. Clearly the vote suppression and voter fraud made a difference of millions of votes, millions more than the 6 million and change by which Obama was elected in 2012. Clearly, the election was stolen by means of those strategies, and this “policy mood” analysis of polling demonstrates that. There is no way an electorate that had become that conservative would have reelected Barack Obama without the election being stolen.
In 2016 the right needs to have a winning conservative candidate, a strategy that dares to present a consistent positive conservative vision to the country, run by a winning campaign on behalf of a great candidate. Those efforts, along with reforms designed to stamp out voter fraud, and strategies to counter the left's efforts to suppress the vote on the right, will ensure that the true conservative majority will take back our country in 2016. Now it's just a matter of getting it done. Let's Roll.
