Independent and Moderate is not the same thing even though they often get conflated.

But regarding the theory of Romney losing because he wasn't conservative enough, if that were true then conservative vote share should have dropped, but it actually went up 1% vs. 2004 and 2008. Romney also did 4 points better with this group than McCain and just 2% less than Bush.

Romney's problem was appeal to "Moderates" where he was 2 points better than McCain but 4 points worse than Bush.
