  1. Makes you scratch your head...

    When mccain ran it was financial meltdown, obama was a rock star, hope and change, young people voted, obama raised 700 milliion to mccains 400 million

    When romeny ran, a lot of hate for obama, obamacare, unemployment still horrific, romney raised about the same money as obama


    mccain - 59,948,240 votes

    romney - 58,127,439 votes

    how is this possible? :eek: :cool:

    I think people are still scratching their heads over this. Also, there should have been some voter growth as there are more people in the U.S. than in 2008 in all segments.

    Romney was supposed to have this fantastic 'get out the vote' army but the voters didn't show up. One writer opined that they weren't that excited about Romney but who would have been more excited about McCain? So, I haven't seen an explanation that makes since yet.

    But, if the numbers are missing the Florida data which still hasn't been called yet, that would explain it.

    Voter fraud. Will we ever know just how much of it occurred on the 6th?

    The entire election was defined by lower turnout compared to 2008. Obama got almost 10 million less votes.
  6. 1) How many votes did Gary Johnson and those other "lesser" candidates get? :confused:
    2) What was that same tally in 2008? :confused:
    3) That may have been the "difference". :eek: :( :mad: :eek:

  7. 1.Many old white conservatives have died

    2.Romney got a smaller share of the Hispanic vote

    3.I think Romney got a smaller share of the female vote then McCain

    3.McCain is a much better man then Romney.If I had to vote for one of them I would vote for McCain 10 times out of 10

    Parasites, welfare queens, bleeding hearts and socialists do tend to hate driven successful people.
  9. .....almost 7 million fewer whites voted in 2012 than in 2008.

    This is the Sarah Palin effect.
  10. 1) no they just stayed home or figured they'd be better off going to work.
    2) right must have been mccains pro illegal immigration stance.
    3) umm I believe palin had something to do with that.
    4) Of course you'd pick someone who made his career out of stabbing conservatives in the back, that's why you are a bat shit crazy democrap.
