Skip to comments.How does one get 52% of the vote in November, and sinks to 37% in eleven months?

Numbers have a way of proving themselves, or not!
I think this past election was cooked. The truth is in the numbers!
By doing just what he’s doing. I bet it’ll sink even lower. And being the narcissist that he is he’ll be spinning around looking who to blame for it.
When one removes all the voter fraud, the numbers will match up almost perfectly!!!!
You have to realize that among those who disapprove, are a large number that believe he is too soft on the pubbies!!!
and it took only eleven months but at least you figured it out
Good point! I’m under the impression his base might think that but never stray.
sink lower??? more than likely his internal polls are much lower...the MSM won’t ever report..
we have the Democrat’s running scared..stay strong House, we have your back...
1) Christians didn't vote for Romney because he was Mormon
2) Conservatives who didn't vote for Romney because he didn't pass their purity test.
The above classes of ass-clowns let the avowed socialist walk into the Oval Office for a second term. Yeah, they really showed the Republican party. Great job ass-clowns.
Romney sucked because he went limp. Despite Romney, Cruz won. Cruz has stones. That is all you need to know.
Not too many people like Obama. Romney’s problem was even fewer could get any enthusiasm for him, and stayed home.
See 13. Romney never put up a fight. Bad candidate.
This will change when the Democrats figure out how to poll the dead.
The old saying was that if the election was within 5 points, then it was steal-able.
Now the Dems seem able to add about 15 points.
"37% of the people like us? Well, we win the election with 52% of the total. Easy-Peazy."
If people ever realize that has taken place, every lamp post in this country will be decorated.
Been following it in the foreign press ... interesting what’s going on in the US that the population don’t know.
You realize Romney got more votes than Cruz in Texas, right?
Mittens is still a faggot.
Why should the democrats run scared?
They can always steal votes during the next election and get away with it as they have in the past.
Romney had a great resume, but he just couldn’t connect with the average guy/gal. To win national elections, you need snappy slogans and play to the low information voter. Style over substance.
Face it, if Obama were white, he would never be president. He would be John Kerry.
Because he is Obama and they cheated. Sick
Its called voter fraud..why do you think Dems are SO against voter ID..because voter fraud is how Dems win elections..when you have people bragging about voting for Obama 20+ times, that is where a Voter ID would help stop things like that, but Dems are against it, because if you have a truly legit election, Dems will lose..also, another reason why Obama’s numbers are down is because his base is finally seeing Commiecare for what it is..once they see that they are the ones that have to pay for it and not the “Mean mean” rich people, they get screwed, Commies only love things when they dont have to pay for it themselves
That’s easy. you run out of “walk around money” after 11 months?
You do realize that voter turnout for the Romney presidential ticket was higher than it was when McCain/Palin were on the ticket right?
Per the FEC:
in 2012 Obama got 65,915,796 votes, Romney got 60,933,500
In 2008 Obama got 69,498,516 votes, McCain got 59,948,323
“I think this past election was cooked. The truth is in the numbers!”
While I am sure there was plenty of fraud, the blame still goes to the stupidity of the American public.
Look at Rasmussen. Obumbo’s numbers were as good early this year as they were in 09. The public is lazy. They watch and read only the Marxist media, if any at all. As long as they have a job and comedy TV, they could not care less about the state of the nation.
50% still approve, while only 49% disapprove, and this is while the state of nation is about as low as I can ever recall, and it gets worse by the day.
You realize winning trumps vote counts, right? What part of Cruz wins do you not understand.
When the voters that voted for you because they thought their health care was going to be free, but then they find out it will cost each person $600.00/month, with $5,000.00 annual deductible and $6,500 annual out-of-pocket and if they don’t like that there will be a stiff fine?
Despite Cruz, Romney lost
A certain natural talent and years of practice.
The reality is that Romney/Ryan budget plan was only 1% better than the Clown. When you argue over peanuts, no one listens. Romney lost because he never fought back.
It did not take me this long to figure it out. My point is, there is truth in the numbers. Time has a way of proving false information.
For reference - the GW Bush standard:
Year 6 averaged 37%.
Romney’s crowning moment as GOP candidate was at that very first debate. I was thrilled. It was probably too little too late. The fire of wanting to right this wrong was not maintained or echoed a great deal by either candidate. Ryan was way too polite and let Joe dominate by doing what he does best; throwing personal attacks and parroting stereotypic beliefs of the DIMS. There was rampant cheating, but it should not have even been close. Too many on our side had already given up the fight based on media popularity. Next time, I will volunteer my time to spread the word in some significant way, vs just criticizing the results.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by
Square miles of land won by Obama:580,000; Romney:2,427,000
Population of counties won by Obama:127 million; Romney:143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by Obama:13.2; Romney:2.1
Professor Olson adds:
"In aggregate, the map of the territory Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low income tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of the Scottish Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty-percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
I also have noted that outside the presidential elections, democRATS have been getting their a**es handed to them in every other election since 2008.
How does a president get 52% of the vote yet have his party lose the House of Representatives in the same election year by 8%?
Because it’s easy for Democrats to cheat in presidential elections but not in Congressional elections.
The Democrats completely dominate today’s big cities, so they can easily add as many dead voters, duplicate voters, etc., as needed to overcome the votes compiled in most large states’ more Republican suburban and rural areas.
However, it’s too difficult for Democrats to cheat successfully in 435 Congressional districts.
Which is why Washington is at an impasse today. The House has enough Republicans from all over the country to stand up successfully to a president whose votes were derived in suspiciously large numbers from a relatively small number of concentrated urban areas.
Bushes approval hits 37% in 2005.
Headline: “Poll: Bush Approval at All Time Low”
0bama’s approval hits 37% 10/2013.
Headline: “Poll: No Heroes In Shutdown, GOP Gets Most of the Blame”
Commentary: This is after 5 years of full court attacks by the press in the first case, and 5 years of full court defense in the second.
I personally don't know any "Christians" or "Conservatives" who did not vote for Romney.
Same here, in fact I don’t believe Zippo even had any intention of being reelected until Benghazi made it necessary for him to get reelected to do a cover up.
stop posting common sense.. that’s not permitted here.
You have to pass it to know what is in it.
I am sorry I cannot agree. As a group it is hard to imagine a more ignorant bunch of people. No, goodtomato, he was voted in by a majority of the American people. The ones that excel at being ignorant.
Nailed it. It sucked, but I voted for Romney. I would rather have seen Newt go down swinging-although Romney did kick butt in the first debate. I think the Candy Crowley interruption was the turning point with the independents.
Willard=least of two evils.
By having a bunch of people who should’ve turned out to vote against him in November, which would have lowered his percentage of the vote to a more plausible 45%, stay home because they didn’t like Romney and didn’t realize that one of only two candidates was going to win the election and that you rarely get everything you want in life, and sometimes have to take the best you can get......
