Is It Too Early?
I predict that in 2016 the Democratic candidate will defeat the Republican candidate by an even wider margin than last night's result. Why? My guess is that they will blame Romney's loss on his not being a 'true conservative.' And their A list of candidates is composed of those, so they will run one of them. Probably Marco Rubio. And he will be shellacked because he will either not attempt to move toward the center, figuring that's what cost Romney, or his attempt to do so will be unconvincing. In my opinion Romney lost because of his move to the extreme right to win the nomination. His 'bounce' came when he moved hard toward the middle. It was just too little, too late. Which doesn't bode well for future Republican candidates. Unless they actually do learn from last night.
