No, the people who voted for Obama elected Obama. The key to getting elected is to earn more votes than the other guy. Mitt Romney was doomed to lose from the beginning. He couldn't beat McCain. He couldn't seal the deal for the nomination until his money finally made him outlast the others. He was just an all around bad candidate from the outset. He got nearly 2 million less votes than McCain was able to get. That's terrible.
