Republicans had to be disappointed in the results of their unrelenting assault on Mr. Obamaâ€™s health care reform law. Only around a quarter of Americans said it should be repealed in its entirety.
People who were comfortable with the rightward slide of the Republican Party (as measured by their comfort with the Tea Party) voted heavily for Mr. Romney.
But Christopher Murphyâ€™s victory over Linda McMahon in the Senate race in Connecticut, Joe Donnellyâ€™s defeat of Richard Mourdock in Indianaâ€™s Senate race and Claire McCaskillâ€™s defeat of Todd Akin in the Missouri Senate race showed the price the Republicans are paying for nominating fringe candidates in their primaries.
