Mitt Romney has fewer votes than John McCain received in 2008! Republicans stayed home!
As of right now, Romney has close to 56,000,000 votes nationwide. In 2008, John McCain had nearly 60,000,000 votes. (Per Wikipedia)
It looks like if all the people who voted for McCain turned out again and voted for Romney, we would have been rid of the Kenyan once and for all.
People stayed home.
It looks like all the Freepers who said they'd never vote for Mitt were not making idle threats
Color me skeptical.
And look at where staying home has gotten us. Not just a president. A complete change to this country.
Obama won in 2008 69 mil to 59 mil.
Right now it is 54 mil to 53 mil Obama leading.
There must be a lot of votes left uncounted before we can say where Romney’s totals will end up.
Wow, what a sad piece of knowledge to know.
Why would so many who should vote Republican in this case not vote?
This is impossible. The anti-Obama vote alone should have increased numbers for the GOP.
Less than McCain in a year where we ran against hope and change with a crappy candidate for a GOP electorate suffering from Bush fatigue?
What am I missing here?
“It looks like all the Freepers who said they’d never vote for Mitt were not making idle threats”
Not just freepers. Freepers (and most other popular conservative online sites) didn’t understand how so many people were for Huckabee in 2008. We don’t even understand our own, let alone the rest of America.
I'm suggesting that pub votes were tossed or changed...
there was true momentum and true numbers out there for Romney...
fewer voters?....hardly...every report around the country said the polls were packed....
fraud that will ever be proven or even investigated...
Color me skeptical too
It will take days to count the last few percents in the big states
I don’t buy it. There were long lines reported at polling places everywhere.
They couldn’t have all been Dems.
The Dems have managed to take voter fraud to a new level. We need to use paper ballots that are scanned. I don’t trust the machines.
I thought Eric Holder was in the DOJ basement shredding documents at the SUPERSHREDDER 5000 while all along he was organizing voter fraud on a national scale.
There is about 10-12 percent of the country’s voters not tallied yet into the totals.
I think Romney will end up with what Mccain got or slightly more, while Obama is getting far less than he did in 2008.
We just don’t have any more voters. The turnout was +6 Dem and that was with less people voting Obama and staying home.
MASSIVE fraud, for starters, there were multiple reports in multiple states of electronic voting machines repeatedly registering a Romney vote as an Obama vote.
I voted, I held my nose and voted for a milktoast moderate republican which I vowed to myself I would never do again.
Of course the republicans stayed home, you gave them nothing to vote for
On top of that, Romney never made the sale, never made a clear cut case for voting for him - much less persuade obummer voters to switch and vote for him
“The Dems have managed to take voter fraud to a new level. We need to use paper ballots that are scanned. I dont trust the machines.”
I don’t trust Dems, period. They’ll always find a way.
“On top of that, Romney never made the sale, never made a clear cut case for voting for him - much less persuade obummer voters to switch and vote for him”
And was too nice to make the case against Obama.
I call BullShit! I stood in the cold for an HOUR to vote here in Va. I have lived here 20 years and voted every election and primary. I HAVE NEVER, REPEAT NEVER, had to wait in line here. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot! I knew something was up at 6:30 AM yesterday.
A lot of the west coast is still out, including half of California.
