I believe about 100,000 dead people came to his aid and pushed him over the top. Don't forget: he was a democrat!
Flawed assumption. We have 2 to 3 daily polls on the popular vote being done daily. State polls are far less frequent and more difficult to do. The electoral maps are based on the most current state by state data. The state by state data can lag by weeks.
The daily polls are indicating that the electoral vote map is about to change toward Romney.
Don’t harsh my mellow, dude.
I’d get my dog to vote for Romney, but he doesn’t have a driver’s license, and Georgia requires voter ID. Maybe I’ll take him to another state, where some lib judge has struck down voter ID, and let him vote. He certainly has more right than an illegal alien!
Lots of wishfull thinking type articles written by dems today. Obama is going to loose in a landslide - I told my husband last night that I think Romney wil get 365 electoral college votes and I am sticking with it!!!

In the 1997 World Series, Cleveland won games two, four, and six by 5, 7, and 3 points respectively. Florida won games one, three, five, and seven by 3, 3, 1, and 1 points respectively. Florida appropriately won the Series because they won more games than Cleveland, even though Cleveland outscored Florida by 44 to 37 overall. Games and elections have rules, and no sensible person would argue with an outcome that follows the rules.
Unfortunately, liberals are neither sensible nor decent; they want the rules rewritten after the fact. I expect them to riot if they win the popular vote but lose the election (they'll riot over any type of loss, but the popular vote excuse will be like the trashy movie in Libya, their justification for the violence that thugs initiate simply because they are thugs). Conversely, if they lose the popular vote but win the election, the split outcome will not concern them at all - hypocrites. Personally, I find the popular vote an interesting footnote to history, but I do not want that statistic considered at all in deciding the election.
Legally, YES, but thanks to Chicago's criminal underworld kingpin, Sam MoMo Giancana, in concert with JFK's criminal father, and all of the illegal Mexican voters, in south Texas, AKA LBJ voters, the final results included over 100,000 dead voters he was declared the Winner.. This is hardly news, maybe to this generation, but it was laughed at when it happened.. Really funny isn't it? UGH!
Former and now deceased Congressman Tip O’Neill admitted on the Phil Donahue show, well, no, he didn’t ‘admit’ it, he was actully bragging that the Kennedy vote was bought by Joe Kennedy aided by the Chicago political machine.
I worked for a liberal Democrat Congress-critter from South Florida in the 80’s.
I spent a lot of time with his campaign volunteers who were primarily elderly transplants (permanent residents) or snowbirds (half-year residents) from New York and New Jersey.
They openly discussed how they requested their absentee ballots from “back home” so they could vote in both places. They argued that since they paid taxes in both places, they had a right to vote in both places. This was widely accepted as common practice in the South Florida retirement community.
The most current RCP Electoral College map show Romney with 206 and Obama with 201. I don’t know where you came up with the other numbers.
I remember reading, on more than one occasion over the years, that one factor in Nixon losing to Kennedy in Illinois in 1960 was that - it was reported - thousands of uncounted ballots were found in the Chicago River.
I remember a very nice young lady radio personality (I forget her name), a lady who worked for Nixon when he was retired - and I remember hearing her say that Nixon chose not to contest the results in Illinois, because even were the allegations against the Daley machine proven true, Illinois 27 electoral votes alone would not have changed the outcome of the election, as Nixon trailed Kennedy by more electoral votes than that.
Someday, maybe the GOP in Illinois can gain enough local support in the State to wrangle a divorce - splitting Chicago off into it’s own state; and gaining two GOP federal senators in the process.
The National Popular Vote bill would guarantee the Presidency to the candidate who receives the most popular votes in the entire United States. The bill preserves the Electoral College, while ensuring that every vote in every state will matter in every presidential election. The National Popular Vote law has been enacted by states possessing 132 electoral votes 49% of the 270 electoral votes needed to activate it.
