On November 6, 2012, 3.2 million fewer Americans voted for Mitt Romney than President Obama. 61.8 million Americans voted for Obama, while only 58.6 million voted for Romney.
Despite losing the popular vote 51% to 48%--not a landslide for Obama by any means, but on the other hand not the neck and neck outcome many predicted--Mitt Romney would be President today if he had secured 333,908 more votes in four key swing states.
The final electoral college count gave President Obama a wide 332 to 206 margin over Romney. 270 electoral college votes are needed to win the Presidency. Romney lost New Hampshires 4 electoral college votes by a margin of 40,659. Obama won with 368,529 to Romneys 327,870.
Romney lost Floridas 29 electoral college votes by a margin of 73,858. Obama won with 4,236,032 to Romney's 4,162,174.
Romney lost Ohios 18 electoral college votes by a margin of 103,481. Obama won with 2,697,260 to Romneys 2,593,779
Romney lost Virginias 13 electoral college votes by a margin of 115,910. Obama won with 1,905,528 to Romneys 1,789,618.
Add the 64 electoral college votes from this switch of 333,908 votes in these four key states to Romneys 206, remove them from Obamas 332, and Romney defeats Obama 270 to 268.
Overall, voter turnout was down, from 131 million in 2008 to 122 million in 2012. Obama won 7.6 million fewer votes than he did in 2008, and Romney won 1.3 million fewer than McCain in 2008.
Romney improved his vote total's over McCain's by the slightest amount in three of these four states, but in Ohio, he actually had 81,000 fewer votes than McCain in 2008.
What do these facts tell us?

If they didnt count all the dead voters,illegals,and fixed the Obama only voting machines things might have been really better.
Hypothetical excercises with the electoral congress are pointless. It’s possible to win with about 25% of the vote, so what?
Still don’t understand why Romney didn’t demand a recount.
Romney should have won by 5 million votes.
Its very easy to excite the base with incendiary comments. Weve seen throughout the campaign that if youre willing to say really outrageous things that are accusatory and attacking President Obama that youre going to jump up in the polls. You know, Im not willing to light my hair on fire to try and get support. I am who I am.
Yes, it could leave one to think ‘was he in it to win it’?
I think it’s pretty clear the country has tipped.
So the left was very good at knowing where and how much to commit vote fraud...
“Meh” outweighed ABO in too many people’s minds.
Romney votes were thrown away, Obama "votes" were fraudulently manufactured.
This was no election. This was a coup d'etat.
JOHN 10:10: the enemy comes only to steal, kill and destroy..
Obama’s ground game.
The number is not 333K. You need to divide it by 2 and add 1 in each state.
In other words, if 20,331 voters in NH, 36,930 in FL, 51,741 in OH, and 57,956 in VA had switched from Obama to Romney, he would be the president.
166,958 is the actual margin, as for each vote that switches from Obama to Romney, is -1 Obama +1 Romney.
1. They tell us that Romney lost a chunk of his base.
2. They tell us that he ran a lousy campaign.
3. They tell us he was the wrong candidate.
All of the predictions about Romney's scorched earth campaign killing his chances with PO'd conservatives could be correct.
All of the predictions about Romney's vanilla policies not being a contrasting record to run on were borne out without a doubt in my opinion.
And all of Romney's hesitancy during the campaign itself to stand up and fight might have turned some people off.
Finally, every knew this would come down to ground game in Ohio, Florida, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Iowa, and even Wisconsin.
And Romney's ground game crashed and burned due to one computer program, a basket into which they'd put all their eggs.
I just sincerely hope that the stupid party will not invite Romney back in 2016 for an encore performance because the gop-e loves him.
...so all these stories of 'massive turnout' were nonsense..?
Add another author to the roster of idiots.
Romney is 400,000 votes behind McCain as of last Friday, with hundreds of thousands of ballots still uncounted.
Of course the drop off for Obama, while real, is much smaller than 7.6 million.
And in those swing states, Democrats are in charge of the voting. How convenient.
We no longer have honest elections in the USA. Citizens will have to find other ways of dealing with the business of governing their states.
166,958 is the actual margin, as for each vote that switches from Obama to Romney”
Looked at it that way, I’d have to say that fraud was a major contributor.
Likely the guarantor for the obama campaign.
I guess I should have voted a few thousand more times.
