2008 Obama/Biden 69,456,897

2008 McCain/Palin 59,934,814

2012 Obama/Biden 58,702,702

Looks like McCain/Palin ran 4 years too early.

Obama/Biden got 10.7 Million fewer votes yesterday than they got in 2008 and still won.

The day after the 2008 elections, the numbers were much smaller - votes are/were still being counted. Below is what I found:

National Presidential popular vote totals
November 5th, 2008 · written by paulie cannoli · 7 Comments

From CNN, by way of Ballot Access News, with 97% of the vote counted:

Obama
63,086,600
52%

McCain
55,848,864
46%

Romney/Ryan have surpassed the day after count from four years ago. Obama/Biden have not. The numbers will likely increase by millions for both in the next few weeks.

Sarah Palin is what made me excited about voting McCain/Palin. I was hoping she would run this year or will run in four years, but I'm not hopeful that she will, or would be successful due to media treatment.

Maybe our long term goal should be to infiltrate the MSM!
