Seriously? Romney Was 'Shellshocked' By His Loss?

•, Henry Blodget
 For most folks predicting that Romney would win, I assumed the answer was the latter. After all, as analysts like Nate Silver had explained for months leading up the election, the poll averages NEVER favored a Romney victory. To confidently believe that Romney was going to win in the face of that data seemed either the height of arrogance and denial or, more likely, just putting a good poker-face on for the sake of the game.

But it seems as though not just Romney supporters but the Romney inner circle actually believed that he would win.

So much so that they were apparently "shellshocked" by the loss.

I can understand being "bitterly disappointed" by the loss. I can understand being "crushed." I have huge admiration for anyone who tries to do anything hard, and running for President is brutally hard.
