    Is the implication that even though he won it was just only by mobilizing more people than no one else in American history:  that's a demerit in the Republican version of Democracy.

    Then goes to the 51% because the are working now in the assumption that democracy works like this: Anything they don't like needs a supermajority, anything they like 50.0000000000001%. Had the electoral vote been tied and Obama a few million votes ahead in the Popular vote B Hume would be on TV saying calmly that Mitt Romney deserved the Congress to elevate him to the Presidency
