    left to be counted. So the drop off wont be as severe. Sandy probably caused some of the drop off, and perhaps lower intensity in safely blue states in 2012 may account for much of the remaining drop off. Also, it is likely that a few hundred thousand moderate republicans/independents switched their vote from Obama to Romney.
