                                              Quick Take
      In the industrial Midwest, voters overwhelmingly favored Obama’s 2009
      auto industry bailout. Even so, Obama is the first president since the
      19th century to win with a lower percentage of the vote in his second-
      term victory than in his first.

                                              Quick Take
      While Romney commanded large majorities of white male voters in
      much of the country, many Republicans will think they could have won
      the White House with someone more conservative than Mitt Romney.
