Editor’s note: Very interesting election analysis regardless of which side you are on. Shows the differences between McCain and Romney’s efforts in their respective run for President again Obama.
President Obama carried fewer states than he did four years ago. He won a second term by dominating the nation’s large urban areas — although mostly by smaller margins compared to his 2008 vote totals.
