|Romney advisers are telling CBS News that there wasn't one person on the Romney campaign who saw the loss coming, and the GOP presidential candidate was "shellshocked" by the results. Here's what they have to say:
"We went into the evening confident we had a good path to victory...I don't think there was one person who saw this coming."
"There's nothing worse than when you think you're going to win, and you don't...It was like a sucker punch."
Romney "was shellshocked."
The CBS story indicates that the Romney team even bought into the "unskewed polls" theory, believing that the polls dramatically underestimated Republican turnout and overestimated Democratic enthusiasm.
