When you lose an election by a few points (rather than a 1984/1996-style blowout), almost anything can be a meaningful proximate cause. I don't think that Ryan is delusional in noting that a more urban electorate (ie. one where turnout in the urban areas is higher than expected) hurt the GOP. Of course, in almost any election, it is a truism (and something of a useless one) that the rason you lost is because more of the other guy's supporters showed up at the polls. But Ryan's not wrong in observing that urban voters tend to be overwhelmingly Democratic.

Common sense and logic have no place on this board. Please take this nonsense elsewhere.
