Akin and Mourdock did not hurt Romney

The notion that Akin and Mourdock’s comments cost Romney the election is utter nonsense. The following is all the evidence needed to destroy that argument. The comments had absolutely ZERO effect on the presidential race in Indiana or Missouri. We’re supposed to believe that they influenced voters in Florida and Ohio to vote for Obama? Please………….

Obama: 44.3%
