I recall, "big turnouts for the worst president ever" comments for months and months prior the election…

Yes and that's basically what FOX is politically, right wing political talking heads….

Morris, Cheney, Rove, Hannity, O'Rielly, Beck, Coulter, etc…

What alternate reality did that happen in?
Obama had the lead in polls through the vast majority of the campaign.
