First, let’s get one thing out of the way. My prediction that Mitt Romney would win the election was absolutely incorrect. I assumed from the beginning of the Republican primary campaign that Romney would win both the nomination and the election, but I failed to keep three things in mind.
- The state polls, with their seemingly absurd +11 and +7 Democrat weightings, were nevertheless correct.
- The Hispanic vote continues to grow at the rate of one percent of the electorate every four years and is increasingly inclined toward the Democratic Party.
- The libertarian element that once voted Republican and now rightly refuses to support moderate Republicans of the Dole/Bush/McCain/Romney variety has grown considerably.
Americans don’t despair now because the president is a Democrat or because blacks disproportionately supported him. That was equally true when Clinton ran for office. The reason they are reeling with shock and horror is that they have finally come to understand that the melting pot is a myth, that the grand story of immigration they swallowed as children is a monstrous falsehood, and that there are now two very different nations living within the boundaries of what they had previously believed was a single country.
