Republican National Committee To Investigate 2012 Presidential Election Loss

 

More than a month after President Obama was named the winner of the 2012 election, members of the Republican Party seek to look deeper into the matter.

The Republican National Committee announced plans Monday (Dec. 10) to launch  an inquiry into what aided in the public shift away from the GOP.

Reinc Priebus, chairman of the RNC, commissioned a collective of five party leaders to partake in the examination, named the Growth and Opportunity Project.  Former President George W. Bush, and his brother, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, are among those spearheading the investigation.

“The Growth and Opportunity Project will recommend a plan to further ensure Republicans are victorious in 2013, 2014, 2016 and beyond,”  Priebus said in a statement. “The work of the Growth and Opportunity Project will be critical as we move forward as a party and take our message to every American.”

Given Mitt Romney’s failed White House bid, the party is without a leader, and looks to strengthen its image in order to win votes amid forthcoming gubernatorial races in Virginia and New Jersey next year, and beyond.

Another blow for the party are exit polls showing the president’s clear hold on Black, Hispanic and Asian voters.

Since his win, the commander in chief’s approval rating has also risen. According to an Associated Press-GfK poll his rating has reached 57 percent, the highest it’s been since May of 2011.

    The GOP nominated the two worst candidates ever in John McCain & Mitt Romney. The American people soundly rejected John McCain and his out of touch, hateful and warmongering views in 2008. Then the GOP gave us Romney who did not have a clue. To make matters worst the GOP had John McCain running around the country promoting his bitterness, hate mongering and warmongering views. The American people rejected almost the senatorial candidates that McCain campaigned for, because the country does not wants wars and with McCain that is all you get WARS!
