This. The GOP could stop courting the christian right, embrace amnesty and maybe even support gay marriage and the press will still have their bias toward the left. This election was not about amnesty, gay marriage, abortion on the government credit card or the economy. This election was about perception. I was amazed at how little people were informed on both sides. It reminded me of student counsel elections in junior high. Obama ran a near perfect campaign and defined Romney very early in his campaign as a rich guy who don't relate. Truth is they all are quite rich, including Obama. Bias media coverage of Romneys on camera comments sure did not help public perception either.
