Anthony Samad: The Republicans lost because they lost sight of the truth and their sense of true reality.
Denis Campbell: Mitt’s negatives will continue to grow for one simple reason, the President remains well-liked outside of the lunatic fringe whilst out-of-touch, gaffe-prone and unlikeable, Romney loses women by 15%, Hispanics by 40% and African Americans by 90%.
