Sixteen million? That many, less inclined to come out and vote for Mitt Romney, against the radical Obamacare Obama we have come to see, who is blowing up U.S. debt beyond any hope for positive change? Compared to voting for the likes of John McCain, against Obama the moderate sounding “feel good candidate,” in 2008?
Remember just a few days ago, seeing the polls show extremely high voter intensity numbers for Republicans, compared to 2008?
Here is one example from Gallup’s, “Voters Say This Election Matters More Than Most,” 11/6.
It clearly shows voter intensity was up for Republicans compared to 2008, by their measurement at a ratio of 85 to 74. Other polls reported similar results to similar questions. Especially with more poll respondents calling themselves Republicans than in 2008, that greater qualitative measurement should have translated into a greater quantitative measurement of votes — and certainly not a great deal fewer votes. Yet, somehow, by the figures below, we are expected to believe that “the white vote” was down 16 million, which happens to translate into a whopping 16%.
This is from the wild and wooly site, Godlike Productions and has gotten a great deal of peer review there, judging from the number of comments.
Some are chalking a lot of the drop-off in white voting to Mitt Romney’s very nasty RNC Power Grab at the Republican National Convention in Tampa and the his campaign’s alienation of Ron Paul supporters. But how could that count for so many votes missing in action, when another recourse for disaffected Paul supporters was checking or writing in Gary Johnson, the Libertarian candidate?
Were Michael Barone, Karl Rove, and Dick Morris right – along with Mitt Romney’s own expert (and astonished) election consultants?
Is there not still a very strong backlash to chimera socialist, Barack Obama and his Obamunists in Congress — just as there was in 2010 and increasingly here in Wisconsin, throughout the recount elections? I sure think so.
Was there vote fraud done in numerous ways, including destroying ballots and electronic will-o-the-wisp votes during the days and days in which votes hung on the line, due to early voting? How about the states where votes were insanely counted by transnational SCYTL company’s systems, headquartered in Spain?
Since numerous sites are re-publishing this oringinal post, by “Anonymous Coward,” so will we:
WHERE DID 16 MILLION WHITE VOTES GO????
It is being widely reported that there were 117 million votes cast: 60 million Obama and 57+ million for Romney.
This is down 13 million from 2008 total of 131.4 million.
In 2008 it is recorded that 100 million whites cast a vote representing 74% of the total and the minority share of the vote was 26%.
Now they are reporting out of a total of 117 million votes, whites cast 72% and minorities cast 28%.
That means that only 84 million whites voted in 2012 down 16 million from the 100 million whites who voted in 2008.
Extrapolating from that, we have to say that 3 million more minorities voted in 2012 than in 2008.
In 2010 the resident population of voting age (including aliens of voting age) was 234,564,000. This was an increase in resident population of almost 5 million from the 2008 figure.
Yet we are expected to believe that there was a net loss of votes of 13 million representing 16 million fewer white voters and an additional 3 million minority voters.
I mean, this is just NOT BELIEVABLE.
I refer you to a chart of all the Presidential elections from 1932 -2010. [link to www.census.gov]
As you can see, as the population increases, the number of voters increases in every election cycle except when Clinton ran for re-election against Dole. Not a hotly contested election. Kind of a walk away for Clinton. And, even with this….the drop in voters is not near 13 million, and 16 million whites.
This turn out and loss of 16 million whites in a hotly contested election such as this one is absolutely NOT believable.
What is really going on?
Smells foul to me.
