There is no way, I can't believe it. And I lost all hope now. I don't think there's any coming back now. This country is being fundamentally transformed and people now want this type of country.

What's the problem? Both received less than in the 2008 election.

I distinctly remember some religious right wingers saying that they couldn't vote for a Mormon and that they'd stay home.

Well, there ya go. These people base their president by his religion and if it doesn't match, then they sit home like babies. I'm tellin' ya... the GOP has to get rid of these pro-life, anti-gay, anti-legal immigration, and religious extremists. It's all coming to fruition. All that bullshit runs people off. If they want to be that way, they can start their own party (that nobody will vote for).

Not to mention, there was a ton of Hispanics voting in this election. The only reason their turnout was big was because Obama said he'd get immigration reform.

Well I know lots of people who are christians and they are not bigots. I just think they should leave the religious stuff separate from their politics.
