3 Million Fewer Votes Than 2008…
Just think about that for a moment. Mitt Romney received 3 million fewer votes than John McCain did in 2008. I cannot fathom this.
For everything that was on the line this election, there were GOP voters who did not vote. They did not vote for Barack Obama, who received 10 million less votes in 2012 than he did in 2008. There are not 3 million people in the military who had their absentee ballots lost. There are not 3 million ballots lost in downtown Philadelphia and other cities (I think).
Where were you? What motivation did you need to show up? What could have possibly forced you to vote?
You are the reason Romney lost. Whether it was the economy, the “War on Women”, the binders of women, the banning of contraception, whatever.
I just hope it’s not religious bigotry. Because then we would be on a WHOLE different level of WTF.
Seems that the explanation might be simpler than I thought. Between now and Thanksgiving, the votes will continue to be counted: Hot Air: Looking at the National Exit Poll
They’re out there, they just haven’t been counted yet, says John Podhoretz:
As I write, Mitt Romney has 57.4 million votes. John McCain ended up with 59.9 million. It’s a little noticed fact that in two weeks following every presidential election, votes continue to be reported…by the millions. As I recall, Barack Obama got something like four million more votes in the weeks after election day, while John McCain got two or three million. It’s likely that by Thanksgiving, the final vote tally will show Romney very close to or even slightly exceeding McCain’s total.
