Regarding Robert Stanelle’s letter in Saturday’s Sun, I believe he misunderstood the outcome of the election.

He mentioned that the people spoke loud and clear and the Republicans should take heed. The only people who spoke loud and clear are the 15 million who did not vote, either because they did not like or approve of either candidate, or they were simply put off by the demeaning rhetoric of the political ads inundating the American public for over six months.

So, I would advise Mr. Stanelle that in 2014, majority may throw out Democrats as well as Republicans, especially if the Democrats try to read that there was a mandate by the meager popular vote edge.
