Republican radio figure Rush Limbaugh announced Wednesday that, far from the Republican Party simply failing to turn out its base on Tuesday night, “we are outnumbered” now in the country, calling President Barack Obama’s overwhelming reelection victory “the trend” from now on.

“We have to face some truths, we have to face some reality,” he said. “We are outnumbered and we are losing ground. This was not a glitch. This is the trend. That happened last night. This is the trend. We are outnumbered. Whether you want to put it in terms of, ‘Have we lost the country or not?’ There’s no other explanation.”
