I didn't really become a political junkie till late 2015, so maybe if I had followed the 2012 race the answer might be obvious, which is why I'm posting here. With the economy still not recovered from the crash, Obamacare being controversial if not just flat out unpopular and the massive wave in the 2010 midterms, the race seems (to me at least) like it should have been really tight, but in the end Obama took it handily, and Romney wasn't even really close. Why was this?

Why didn't Obamacare drag him down more?
