The only lessons that matter is that Rasmussen has been discredited as a illegitimate right-wing polling organization… fox news has been shown to have no clout as their ratings tank… Gallup was embarrassed for following the right-wing methodology… MSNBC became the #1 rated most trusted Cable News Channel… and President Obama has been once again shown as brilliant… and you never bet against Black, LOL…

Landslide Mandate… WE WON!!!!!!!!!!

The biggest lesson is that if you live
and breath inside the Fox News & Propaganda
Bubble, Rasmussen Polling will (for the right
amount of payoff) tell you exactly what you
want to hear.

Romney by a landslide!

The 2012 election proved once, and for all time, that we have passed the threshold of the non taxpayers out voting the taxpayers. This can only mean trouble. The takers outnumber the makers, easy math.

The electorate didn't like the challenger enough and they stuck with the devil they know.

The electorate is split and gave the country the same messed up Congress and President as before the election.

Nobody won anything.

I’d bet money that had Romney won and the Democrats retained control of the Senate you wouldn’t be on here talking that split nonsense… but that just shows your desperation; you need any glimmer of stupid rationalization to deal with the fact that our Osama-killing Commander-in-Chief was re-elected in another landslide with a mandate… Obama single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden… he got HCR passed and signed into law… he told the Supreme Court what the laws are and they agreed… and he beat the crap out of the out of touch rich Mormon to kick in the teeth of the right-wing tea-baggers to spend another 4 years in the White House.

The "entitled" won this election. Obama promised more entitlements to an entitlement driven, envious of wealth society, and, like sharks to blood, they swarmed his offer and sold their souls for more "free" phones. As they sold their votes (souls) they empowered the government, so now government can take control of their lives, and like puppets on a string, they'll become obedient servants.

While your stae has the most uninsured people in the nation - over 25% have no health care whatsoever dingleberry!

And what happens when Obama expanded Medicaid to states like yours? Your idiot governor refuses it! 100% coverage with no state funds until 2016 - then on a sliding scale, your state would pay only 10% of the costs by 2022 - talk about stupidity!

"Texas would be eligible for $164 billion in federal aid to pay for the expansion through 2020. But Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst says Texas' share of $27 billion would be a heavy burden.

"Quite frankly," he said, "the Medicaid system is broken and by simply adding a million and a half to two million more people to Medicaid will not solve the problem."

Texas will also be the largest state to refuse to create the state-run health care exchanges that would allow people to shop for affordable coverage. In a letter to the Obama administration, Texas Gov. Rick Perry called the requirements "brazen intrusions into the sovereignty of our state."

The point you missed genius is Fox wins most daily polls, is number one on the average each year and the last 15 years, top talk shows, and the fact that most 2-25 don't even watch TV but get news on the internet if they're of the age that cares about it. Most independents watch Fox. DUH

Twirling numbers around doesn't prove your fkn propaganda, ignoramus. The liberal whirling dervish again..
