itt Romney, the defeated GOP candidate for president, on Wednesday ascribed his loss to "gifts" President Obama had showered on certain constituencies, including younger voters and minorities. "With regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest, was a big gift," he said on a conference call with his national finance committee. "Free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women." He went on to say that Obama's health care reform was a "huge" gift for Latinos and blacks. Romney's remarks come as the GOP continues its soul-searching quest to find out why the party is so unpopular with younger voters, minorities, and women. Republican governors Bobby Jindal (La.) and Scott Walker (Wisc.) promptly denounced Romney's comments. "We have got to stop dividing American voters," Jindal said. "We're fighting for 100 percent of the vote."
