There were many factors to speculate about

Staircase wisdom is always sweet.

For example, many anti-Semites claim that neo-con Republicans do the war bidding for Jews and Israel. So one would expect Ameerican Jews to support Romney, since he is a more hawk and does not have muslim background. Well, anti-Semites were proved wrong, again. 70% of Jews voted for Obama. And their share is more than all RP supporters combined.

Catholics did their contribution too. Many of them voted for Obama to prevent a Mormon taking the office and bring more brothers from Mexico in.

But the main stroke was from independents. When independents saw that religious fret more about fertilized eggs than about individual liberty, they decided to stay home.
