In the US, it is the electoral college, not the popular vote that decides an election. Presidential candidates have lost the popular vote altogether but won the necessary number of electors. In this case, Obama had more than enough electoral votes, even without Florida, where the Republican Jewish Coalition poured so much of its resources. BTW, 70% of Jews voted for Obama, despite the vicious campaign of the RJC against him.. The RJC is claiming this as a victory, using some ridiculously high number of Jews that they guestimated voted for Obama in 2008. Articles published in 2008 say the percentage of Jews who voted for Obama back then was 74%, the same percentage as voted for John Kerry in 2004. The difference between 2008 and the 70% of 2012 is within the margin of error, (It's all based on exit polling.).So much for "Buyer's Remorse"!.
