Not Just Romney
Some on the right are arguing that Romney's loss last week was due to his weakness as a candidate or his purported moderation. That argument would need to address the fact, however, that, in fourteen out of eighteen hard-fought Senate races, the Republican candidate ended up performing worse than or equal to Romney in that state. In some states (such as Missouri, Indiana, and Montana), the Republican performed more than eight points worse than Romney. So Romney in many places performed better than other Republicans in key match-ups.
