Still not finalized.
So Obama lost 5.3 million votes, and Romney got about 200,000 MORE than McCain but not enough.
Imagine if Romney did not have morons around him like all the consultants and idiots like Eric Fehernstrom who told the world to ignore everything Romney said in the primaries because they would Etch-a-Sketch everything he had said when the general election came along.
That alone probably made 5 million people, like Reagan Democrats, stay home.
Zero’s lead keeps getting bigger. Why? I suspect that the late counted absentee ballots and conditional votes are going to Zero in a big way. This would be your fraudulent votes. Any comments?
Leip is far behind Wasserman (who is doing continuous county-by-county updates).
It’s Obama 64,811,843 and Romney 60,444,303, and 2,186,461 Other.
The “vote thrower-awayers” are surprisingly numerous and much higher than 2008. It’s overwhelmingly for Johnson, so people shouldn’t kid themselves that a “true social conservative” would have gotten those votes.
Why are the red and blue colors reversed? That was a scary map until I realized the switch.
Why would one bother with illegal activity if the vote is already decided?
What’s the vote total for 0bama vs. Romney in the Swing States only? How many fraudulent 0bama votes were there? I’d imagine a heavy ‘union voter fraud’ MACHINE was working overtime, especially during EARLY VOTING.. GOTTA HAVE THAT EARLY VOTING AND SUPPRESSION OF MILITARY VOTES.
Red is the color of socialism. They used to switch back and forth on the colors, it wasn’t until 2000 and Tim Russert the Republicans got stuck with Red, which is idiotic.
My thoughts are that even after they pulled out all of the stops they could, including voter fraud and the undying support of the media, the left barely squeaked out a <2% victory with an incumbent. Take away the effects of the storm, put in actual journalism in the coverage of Benghazi, and take away the attempts to hide the true economic numbers and this percentage flips pretty quickly. We should stop with all the hand wringing around here and realize that at least half the country is on our side - and we can turn things around with good strategic decisions, and the right candidates.
I can explain that simply:
(just joking ... sort of)
It’s Obama 22,846,836 and Romney 21,085,930 in the swing states.
Red is usually the color of the incumbent.
When the absentee ballots and provisional ballots were filled out the vote totals had not been determined yet. The strategy, pretty obviously would be amass large amounts of additional votes in case they came into play such as with Florida in 2000 and Illinois in 1960.
On Saturday I saw (in San Francisco) a twentysomething guy wearing a "Gary Johnson 2012" T-shirt.
Thanks, I’ve been looking for more recent numbers. Make a post of that site here why don’t ya?
In the old days they used to use blue for the Republicans and red for the Democrats. I’ve read that it was John Chancellor of NBC News who came up with the idea. See this example from NBC’s 1980 election coverage, which has the map all blue for Reagan:
Not really sure why they switched.
Leip probably made a lot of his maps back before the colors were reversed, and decided to keep using blue for GOP and red for Dems for his new maps.
Headline: Romney beats McCain!
A few more votes to roll in, and he will have also beaten GWB’s 62 million vote total from 2004, and be the highest GOP vote-getter in history!
Another successful campaign from your friends at GOP-e!
They really outdid themselves this year.
You'd be surprised.
Te Red for Republicans took hold firmly in the Bush-Gore 2000 election. But even then there was noo common ground. On election night, several networks had Republicans as blue on their maps.
With its socialist-marxist leanings, red is more appropriate for democrats. As you mention, prior to the 1980s, blue was the Republican color on the three networks and in the color print media.
I simply am not convinced of any significant voter fraud. I AM convinced the GOP elite stuck us with a flaming idiot for a candidate. We lost because of what we were selling, not voter fraud. I suggest we actually, I dunno, try selling conservatism next time.
The voter fraud thing is just a canard.
Massachusetts should be pink.
That’s pretty close.
Get ready! I agree with you about the voter fraud canard. We might be the only 2 guys here that believe that. I mentioned this on another thread and got abused:).
Axelrod was interviewed on local Chicago news tonight. He said the reason Romney lost was because of the big Republican gains in ‘10. It forced Romney to move to the right to reflect those gains and get the support of the voters. And it turned off those in the middle. HA! I think it had more to do with Axelrod demonizing Romney/Ryan and attracting enough new low information voters to win. Obama couldn’t run on his record so he divided everyone by race, gender, sex, etc. Good luck governing the mess you made, Barry,
What % of the voter-aged (= registered and unregistered) pool voted in this election?
CA had a big chunk of the later reported votes. Obama beat Romney 61% to 37% in CA.
Maybe it was because blue is a more calming color and they needed to get us all calm before they began hypnotizing their mind-numbed robots.
Oh, but the lamestream media said Odumba has a mandate and that the GOP is a dead party, this, this can’t be true! Our Republican leadership had better stand up to these libtards, the fight is not over!
Yeah, the GOPe proved that can’t even win against Jimmy Carter, when we are on the verge of a depression and his voters stay home.
Way to go losers.
Been looking for that stat myself.
Mitt could hardly BE mushy enough to grab the Obama base if they weren’t already fed up with Obama and just wanting something else.
Mitt’s potential base was still bigger. But he only pumped it feebly where it counted: the main vote. It’s a don’t-count-your-chickens warning.
Here in Virginia it varied from about 50% in reliably red counties where Obama's war on coal should ave motivated a few more voters to 60% in the black and blue cities like Petersburg. In my own reddish rural county it was Romney 60-40 with 17k out of voting age 29k. Our lib/black precinct had much longer lines than elsewhere but I don't have numerical breakdowns for that yet.
One Obama voter I am forced to deal with said it was because "Romney lies". I asked what he specifically lied about and she said "everything". I couldn't press it further, but I was not aware she was liberal although I knew she was stupid for various reasons.
California is the last state to complete their count. And Zero won California going away.
One word...FRAUD plain and simple.
It takes a lot of time to alter that many ballots from republican to democrat.
Who cares? It is all bullsit anyway.
Perhaps the gloom and doom naysayers are right.
There is no hope. Forget it.
They went all out to steal the election by voter fraud. They are laughing their a**** off at us ‘sore losers’. Their lamestream media will make sure we are utterly defeated and humiliated if we even dare to say a word.....
Don’t even think of taking measures to prevent future voter fraud, because we have no ‘established leaders’, no media help....Don’t be naive or living in fantasy-land.....
Is this what you gloom and doom naysayers want to hear?
Looking at the state level table - the election turned on 463,512 votes in CO, FL, OH & VA. That is an electoral squeaker.
Thanks, FRiend. PING me when you find that stat. Thanks!
If half of us voted then that means that 1 out of 4 of us choose how the other 3 are allowed to live - - - .
PING me if you find that stat. Thanks.
“Looking at the state level table - the election turned on 463,512 votes in CO, FL, OH & VA. That is an electoral squeaker.”
Winning by that many votes from the millions cast is very fraud-worthy.
I think it is past time for conservatives to stand up and DEMAND that the Electoral College delay its judgement until this election can be thoroughly investigated.
Can we do a MARCH ON WASHINGTON in time?
Excellent idea. THIS ELECTION SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. However, anyone calling for that would be immediately labeled as ‘racist’. Susan Rice LIED to the American people to enable 0bama’s re-election in exchange for a promotion and.. We’re ‘racist’ for questioning her cover-up?? Perhaps Glenn Beck can get something started.. I do not believe 0bama won this election without FRAUD orchestrated by his union CHEATS.
AGREED. Nullify the fraudulent votes and Romney won this election.
It means it is time to consider what we do when the ballot box is broken.
