In 2004, Democrats’ rallying cry was “51 percent isn’t a mandate.” They fought Bush and the Republicans tooth and nail, and ultimately benefited in subsequent elections. Will similar obstinance redound to the GOP’s benefit? Perhaps, although their demographic challenges are serious. Republicans have an even stronger case that Obama has no mandate. Unlike Bush, his vote totals and margins decreased compared to his first election, he didn’t run on any concrete agenda, and voters returned Republicans to a double-digit advantage in the House of Representatives.
51% isn't a mandate. He, he, he.
