The top ten poorest states that get most of the social services money (the moochers) voted for Romney. Why is that do you think?

Because a state is poor doesn't mean it contains the most moochers. For example, Mississippi, a red state, is a poor state and yes, they receive more federal money than they pay in taxes but California, a blue state, is wealthier than Mississippi but it's population is also 34 million more people. The city of Los Angeles has a larger population than the entire state of Mississippi! When you look at electoral votes, the to 10 poorest states, all red, have a combined total of 80 votes while Cal & NY carry 84 votes combined.

1. Our country's moral climate is changing ( for the worse).
2. He picked Ryan and polarized the ticket.He pushed away seniors and independents.
3. He put his foot in his mouth and the media capitalized on it.
4. Republicans have been unwilling to work with democrats and the average American is tired of party politics. They are now seen as obstructionist.

I voted for Romney - but the above is the hard truth.

As an independent, I blame the Tea Party for Mitt Romney's loss.

The Tea Party is the most active and vocal group of the Conservatives, and vote heavily in the primaries, so there is no way a candidate can receive the Republican nomination without pandering to their far right ideologies.

The Tea Party does well at local elections in conservative areas, and hence do very well at electing their candidates to the House. But once it gets to a state wide race, it becomes very difficult, hence they do not have much influence on the Senate.

Once it becomes a national race, it nigh upon impossible, and hence - Barak Obama won the Presidency...

In conclusion: The Tea Party is their own worst enemy.

Or maybe it's the Dem's or the Libertarians, or the 30% of regeristered Republicans that failed to show up? Or maybe he's right and you right wing liberals have alienated yourselves into a dark hole where you shall blame others for the next four years.

The average American is indeed tired of party politics. While there is enough blame to go all around, the Republican party, and more specifically, their Tea Party members are being singled out as the obstructionists.

The question I think was why did all the states that get the most welfare money vote for Romney? Why did they?

As far as NC, since we're on that list, we had more producers supporting Mitt than moochers supporting Barry show up at the polls, as did the rest of the red states on the list but as I pointed out, it only took two moocher states to cancel out the ten poorest states.

"Democracy can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largess of the public treasury. From that time on the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the results that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship." (This quote has been attributed to both Sir Alex Fraser Tytler and Alexis de Tocqueville.)
