Skip to comments.Vote Was Astronomical For Obama In Some Philadelphia Wards (99% or more in 13 different wards!)

Some Philadelphia neighborhoods outdid themselves in Tuesday's presidential election.
In a city where President Obama received more than 85 percent of the votes, in some places he received almost every one. In 13 Philadelphia wards, Obama received 99 percent of the vote or more.
Those wards, many with large African American populations, also swung heavily for Obama over John McCain in 2008. But the difficult economy seemed destined to dampen that enthusiasm four years later.
House Speaker Sam Smith, musing over "staggering" turnout in some city precincts and reacting to wrong information that "90 percent of the precincts in Philadelphia County turned out over 90 percent of voters," called the ability to get such numbers "questionable."
Smith's math does not add up. Voter turnout in Philadelphia was around 60 percent, according to state election figures.
Nor was Philadelphia the only place in the region with such high numbers for Obama. Five Delaware County towns topped 90 percent, led by Yeadon at 96.3. Following were Chester City (94.8), Darby Borough (93.5), Chester Township (92.3), and Colwyn (90.3).

99% turnout for a vote is like 0% unemployment, its not possible by legitimate means.
In a city that size, people, die, go to jail, end up in hospitals.....
I used to live in Philadelphia. As much as I know the Rats are cheating, I know those areas and I’m shocked barry didn’t win 100%. The fact that even one person in that sea of leaches had some common sense would actually be encouraging, but I suspect they just didn’t know how to read and pushed the wrong button.
It’s also a case of black solidarity. “Us vs. them.”
We need to cut of the EBT card funding so they know that elections have consequences. Bring the Pain
It’s pathetic. Never in my life would I have ever believed that Voter FRAUD would be such a problem in the United States. It’s become third world. In Canada we MUST show picture ID plus other identification such as a registration card, a utility bill, a Health CareCard, passport etc. There is NO fraud here unless you can pay for false ID. We are also assigned only ONE voter place to vote. We cannot run from station to station to station. Only those who are cheaters would vote against such a system to avoid fraud. I don’t doubt for a second that Obama was elected by fraud both times. CO
Not once in the campaign did I hear Romney mention the 14% unemployment rate among blacks.
After voting at my home, I drove into Philadelphia on Tuesday.
I drove past four polling places in the most liberal neighborhoods during the lunch hour. All four were empty with no lines, no crowds, nothing.
I stopped to get my hair cut by an Italian barber across the street from a fifth polling place in this liberal section of the city.
I was there for about 30 minutes and counted no more than 30 people enter and leave that site.
I think the vote in these inner cities was manipulated with tens of thousands of ballots voting straight party line Democrat.
If you look at Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, you will see that these states (and others) typically split their vote for statewide races.
This year, the Democrats won all statewide races in these and other states. It was as if someone stuffed the boxes with party-line ballots.
Every state Obama carried that has a GOP legislature and GOP governor needs to move to the Maine/Nebraska system NOW. It should have been done last year for this election. If you’re in such a state, write to your governor, and your legislator in both houses (if they’re Republicans).
Typical PA election year turnout is 62.8% in a Presidential year. 60% is slightly high for Philly, but not so far out of normal you’d raise an eyebrow. The 99% numbers are consistent with pre-election polls among blacks with 100% going to 0bama and 0% going to Romney: There are precincts in inner city Philadelphia that are 100% black. Yeah, they probably threw in some extra votes just in case it was close; they always do. All that is only racism when it’s done by whites.
So true, Obama’s demeanor showed that he thought he was going to loose, the crowds reflected that, but his cronies were working over time to steal the election and the media helped!
I believe it happened WITHOUT fraud.
City of York, PA, 100 miles to the west had its Sixth Ward vote 95% for Ø.
Bullet Shoot...That's BS!!
I’ve seen how they do it. They roll people to the polls. Republicans have never listened to me when I told them they have to do that too. The Dems own the city of York, and the GOP doesn’t even try. I suyspect the big money people, sho support the GOP in the county, and support the Dems in the city, have warned the GOP off.
I’m not sure there’s fraud going on in the Sixth Ward of York, its just a thickly non-white district, with a smattering of college students and poor whites who can’t afford to move.
I visit the neighborhood once every week or more.
Its a sight to behold truant children walking the streets in the middle of school days, trash being dumped into yards from passing cars etc. etc.
Drugs and alcohol have this neighborhood weighed down.
Voter fraud has been suspected in York City, though, with the infamous Toni Smith a prime suspect. It likely does go on in the margins of elections with thousands of votes in a state like Pennsylvania cooked up.
