Rush: GOP Lost Because It Didn't Turn Out Base

By Michelle Lopata   |   Thursday, 08 Nov 2012 01:17 PM

Talk radio host Rush Limbaugh says that the real reason the GOP lost the presidential election is that “the Republican Party didn’t turn out its base" — not demographic issues involving black or Hispanic growth.

“The Democrats think Republicans have a demography problem” and “all they want to do is win votes with old white guys,” Limbaugh said. But “the Republican Party has . . . far more elected Hispanics than the Democrats have.”

Limbaugh noted that all of the prominent Hispanic speakers at the Republican National Convention shared a similar “up-from-nothing story” with convention attendees and the country.

Limbaugh also said that they or their families came from nothing and that sacrifice and hard work brought them their success in their professions.

“Why doesn’t that count?” Limbaugh asked. Because “the hard work story is not resonating with Obama voters.”

“We don’t have a demography problem but the Republican Party today is convinced that they do,” said Limbaugh.

“If the Republicans who didn’t vote had voted, Mitt Romney would have won the popular vote by 180,000 [votes].”

“[Republicans] didn’t lose because of demographics; 3 million of their voters stayed home.”
