Skip to comments.How Ohioans voted in 2012
Posted on 11/23/2012 8:27:43 PM PST by Catsrus
Here's a breakdown of how each county in Ohio voted in 2012. If it weren't for the most populace counties such as Franklin, Cuyahoga and Hamilton - Mitt would have won as would Josh Mandel.
Something needs to be done about these large counties winning states in the elections. Someone on here (don't remember who) suggested that the winner should be by who wins the most counties or to proportion the electoral votes accordingly.
Anyway, for those interested - here it is.
elections were rigged...doesn’t matter how they voted...
It is becoming more and more obvious that this is due to systemic fraud. The Democrats can't commit fraud in every legislative district so they lose control of the legislatures but they can commit sufficient fraud in the city districts they control so as to skew the statewide elections.
But Catholics voted for Obama in these states, it’s worse than the headline.
And they bitch about contraceptives.
How people voted didn’t mean anything. It was those who counted the votes that decided the outcome.
Republicans pretty much dominate the legislatures in the states I mentioned. For example, in Ohio the Senate has 23 Republicans and just 10 Democrats. And in the Ohio House of Representatives, there are 60 Republicans and 39 Democrats with the Republicans actually having gained a seat in this last election. With that kind of breakdown, it is beyond strange that Democrats were able to prevail in the statewide elections.
This is exactly my point after looking at the map and knowing the majority the Republicans hold in our state. There is something seriously wrong with all of this.
In some counties, Mitt trounced Obama and in others, he narrowly won. But, it was supposedly, the most populated DEM counties which gave Obama the win. How can a state, and that goes for some others as well, elect such a large majority of Republicans to state seats and then vote heavily for Obama when its a known fact that there are smaller turnouts for state races. Maybe that’s where the difference lies - some only turn out for presidential elections??
I don’t know, I’m still trying to sort this out in my own mind and heart.
If you’ll notice, it says these results are unofficial. I don’t know if the military and provisional ballots were counted yet and included in these numbers or not.
You dodged the statement but it does not matter.
Not a single ‘swing state’ swung so it is all about getting federal PIE whilst forcing more work on the producers in each state.
This is how socialism works.
It mattered not how the voters voted.
It mattered who counted the votes.
Welcome to the USSA.
I 100% agree. The whole voting format needs to be overhauled and made secure with multiple safeguards to insure that EVERY legal vote is being counted.
IMO, there should be a Republican, a Democrat and an independent representative on hand at EVERY voting station to collect a copy of EVERY ballot being cast. After I cast my ballot, I get a printed copy with an ID # on it.....the Republican rep, Dem rep and the independent source also will get a copy. No voter fraud is possible and of course, a photo ID requirement.
North Carolina swung into the Romney camp. And Indiana went red this election year as well. I guess the Obama camp had to give us those 2 states so that the voter fraud couldn’t be uncovered? And, even if it is - who is going to do anything about it? (I hear crickets chirping).
I just know that this election was stolen as do others, but proving it or getting someone to look into it are 2 different things.
This sounds like a good plan except we won’t get DEMS to go along with anything. They will just kick the R & I watchers out of the polling areas, until they do their dirty work and the damage is done.
All I know is that something needs to be done about these largely populated cities carrying the state’s electoral votes.
Husteds solution to this perceived problem of Democrats and the national media picking on him? He says we should make Ohio less important in the election by dividing up our electoral votes by Congressional district.
This is huge and should raise giant red flags. Under the current winner-take-all system, Obama won all 18 of Ohios electoral votes. Under Husteds plan, 12 of those 18 electoral votes would be handed to Mitt Romney, the popular vote loser.
Husted is correct, and this should have been done long ago in states with large Dem cities, but majority Republican state legislatures.
If they wished, the State legislatures in OH, PA, MI, FL, and anywhere else, could apportion their electoral votes by congressional district, with two votes apportioned statewide for the senators.
I think this is a very good solution. Now the legislature needs to work to get this done before 2014. Every state needs to implement this, but won’t. Just think how those living in solid blue states like CA must feel. The large populated areas there carry the electoral votes and people don’t feel like their votes count - which they don’t.
The black votes are all stuffed into a couple of D districts keeping the R districts safe, so the R's dominate the state legislature. The House races were similar: 12R to 4D.
The proof of gerrymandering is easy: The R winning percentages were 58, 59, 59, 57, 53, 57, 100 (Boehner unopposed), 60, 64, 54, 62, 52
The D winning percentages were: 68, 73, 100 (unopposed), 72.
The gerrymandering doesn't help in Senate and Presidential races.
If enough people complained and took this format or something even better to the streets, local town hall meetings, flooded the phone lines of congress... just for for starters, they would have to fix the voting system, IMO. We need to get organized with our complaints. POWER IN NUMBERS...YES, I’ve been paying attention to how Sharpton and those Left losers get their point across and I think it’s time we pull together and get some of America’s problems solved.
