I believe Mitt Romney actually gained ground among female voters compared to John McCain in 2008. Where he lost ground was in the Latino vote and I think that cost him the election.
However, Republicans have a strong track record of appealing to Latino voters, so I think that failure could be place solely on the shoulders of Romney's campaign, not the Republican party in general.
