    that Obama won the popular vote by a convincing margin.  At the point Ohio was called, the pop vote was pretty close, and that's where the mainstream media left it.

    The story became about the ShellShocked Right, and many people never went back and saw the numbers.

    I've had several middle of the road friends argue no mandate because the vote was so close.  They've been shocked when I told them it wasn't close at all and Obama had won by more than 3 million votes.
