    If the voters in NY, NJ and CT were not impacted by Hurricane Sandy, the president would have gained a significantly larger share of the popular vote. I suspect Romney would have been hard-pressed to finish over 47%.

    I've been blogging about that number for a while now, because I believe what Romney got on Election Day was a heavy dose of karma.
