Romney will top McCain's 60M in 2008 and probably end up closer to Bush's 62M in 2004.
Is that true? Millions uncounted? Dang, that seems a lot.
But you are right. We have to match apples to apples, final total votes of McCain to final votes to Romney and start there.
Bottom line, Mitt may have beaten McCain and tied Bush 43 which raises other questions, doesn't it ?
Romney and his goons will count every vote to make it look close. There were lots of votes that were never counted in 2008 so stuff it.
Romney was a flip-flopping liar and the folks told you what they thought of him by starting home.
