What advice would you give to the Republican Party in the aftermath of the 2012 election? I think that the Republicans need to try harder in focusing more on reaching out to their voters. The Democrats did a great job of going into smaller towns and specifically searching for more individuals to vote for their party. The Republicans need to branch out and familiarize themselves with a more diverse group of voters instead of their typical Republicans today. They should also stick more to their conservative beliefs because in this particular election, many Republicans thought that Mitt Romney was not conservative enough.","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":329370,"object_id":"nicolevo1353380200","particle_type":"bodytitle","picture":null,"text":"Gender","content_type":"","title":null,"shrink":null},{"type":"particle","particle_id":329372,"object_id":"nicolevo1353380218","particle_type":"bodytext","picture":null,"text":"Was there a gender gap in 2012?

Age groups that ranged from an older age than that were stronger supporters for Romney, the strongest group ranging from 65-older. I think that many younger people lean to be more liberal because of how our society is being shaped every day.

In the national results, the only group of people based on education that support Romney were those that graduated college. All other groups such as no high school, high school graduate, some college, and post graduate all voted mostly Obama. This shows that most people support Obama, but those with just a college education support Romney the most.

Be specific. I think that Barack Obama won the election because him and the Democratic Party put a lot of effort into branching out and covering every area of America to reach every demographic possible to vote for them. Using this strategy was very clever and gave the Democratic Party a great advantage in uncovering hidden votes and swaying uninformed voters to vote for them. It also convinced many voters that the Democratic Party cared more about the individuals rather than the greater picture because they put so much time into visiting small areas that would later be known to have a great impact on the election. Obama did a good job with addressing all of his issues and making sure that all Americans were represented and happy with what he wanted to do to benefit the country. Although Mitt Romney worked just as hard, Obama was able to uncover a greater strategy for hitting all possible demographics across America.
