Telling losses for Romney in Mich., Mass.

What was most ominous for Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election was that he couldn’t even carry the state where he grew up and where his father was the governor (Michigan) or the state where he was governor and has lived as an adult (Massachusetts).

A candidate doesn’t stand a good chance of winning the presidency if he can’t carry such states.
