From Daily Kos:

Quote:
Now that Barack Obama has won, Republicans have settled on a weird new talking point: the election results, they say, demonstrate that America is a "center right" nation. But as is typical with the GOP, their claim isn't reality-based. Consider:

1. Democrats have won the popular vote in 4 of the last 5 presidential elections.
2. Democrats have won the presidency in 3 of the last 5 presidential elections.
3. Democrats have increased their popular vote total in 7 of the last 7 presidential elections, while Republicans have done so in just 3 elections, staying flat once, and dropping 3 times.

Oh, and may I mention one more thing? President-elect Barack Obama has won more votes than any other presidential candidate in history.
