Thanks for the post, I’ve been trying to point this out for a week but people are so desperate to prove that people stayed home because Romney was a RINO that they are impervious to reason.
I’ve done a full spreadsheet and estimated Romney ends up with about 63 million votes, actually (something is really wrong with the Washington State totals, says 55% of the vote in, but projecting that to 100% gives way too many votes).
Neither one tells you how many votes are outstanding ~ if you knew that, you'd know the votes!
They'll add the Romney loss to their litany of 'we wuz persecuted' tales. I don't encourage folks to do that for the simple reason that a century or two down the road no one can make amends even if there had been persecution.
