The Myth of the Missing Three Million Republicans

A score of people this past week have asked me about the three million Republicans allegedly "missing" at the polls this year. For starters, if the Washington Post is to be believed, Mitt Romney received 1.3 million fewer votes than John McCain did in 2008, not 3 million. For the record, Obama received 7.5 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008.

More than 1.1 million of the Republican votes were "lost" in California. It is not that California Republicans turned against Romney. His percentage of the vote was higher than McCain's in 2008.

And the Q for NY is, did Obama also lose votes?

If both Romney & Obama lost votes, as I thought they would, then it was more due to storm Sandy's aftermath.

As for CA, of course...'tis good strategy not to vote for one of two liberals ... when you know your vote vs. Obama won't do any good

The conservative internet sites are covering this, and the massive blatant voter fraud, but where is it on national TV? I haven’t heard one thing on FNC. Did I miss something?

The ‘missing’ Republicans are still out there, but so are those from the left who were dis-satisfied with O. Voter disenfranchisement should NOT be taken lightly — from either side!

This revision, if correct, is the reason I have been calling so often on these threads for us to withhold judgment about how to proceed. Until we know the data we certainly cannot decide, for example, whether to move right or left or whether to emphasize women's or Hispanics or whether to concentrate exclusively on economic issues.

Until we know the numbers we are just blowing smoke.

In the swing states, votes for Romney weren’t ‘missing’. THEY WERE DESTROYED AND/OR SIMPLY NOT COUNTED. The reason the House races didn’t change much is because thousands upon thousands of ‘Obama only’ ballots were stuffed into ballot boxes. Easy to ‘fill out’ 10 ballots per person if all one does is place one check mark on it. And no names on ballots; BRILLIANT!! /s

Thanks. “We”, thanks to our fast computers and internet connections, too often make the mistake of interpreting trends and forming conclusions based on whatever meager and unverified data happens to come down our internet pipes. There is merit in waiting until the facts are known before condemning a candidate, the electorate, or the whole blinkin’ country.

Wouldn’t surprise me if the U.N. ‘poll monitors’ brought ballots pre-filled for 0bama with them.

Not "Obama Only" ballots, but Straight Democrat ballots.

That explains the results in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania where every statewide race down the line went for the Democrats. In previous years, in both states, statewide races are typically split between the parties.

You can get away with this if those ballots are reserved for "safe" districts/wards where nobody will fuss and where the House race is not affected.

This fraud was conducted to ensure Obamacare would remain in place, even if Obama somehow lost as the Senate would remain in Dem hands.

While this assertion sounds plausible, keep in mind that California has been losing moderate to conservative population for years.

While their population continues to rise some, it is mostly a function of massive legal and illegal immigration, mostly from poor countries and these people have a far higher fertility rate than the Californians of two or three decades ago.

Bottom line is the "takers" are coming and they are multiplying after they get here.

Not to be argumentative, but places like VA, OH, and FL have R governors and SoS.

Are they really letting the Dems steal this?

2.5 million folks die every year. High percentage of them are old white people who vote Republican. Being replaced by non-whites that vote Dem 70% plus.

Or young voters (I don’t necessarily mean 18 year olds, but maybe late-20 early 30 year olds that haven’t been involved in the past) that are more on the libertarian side of the Republican spectrum. They find the disagreement over gay marriage and comments from Todd Akin offensive, but still believe in fiscal conservatism.

I haven't seen the word, "Diebold" on one of these threads.

Are our memories that short?

I watched the gigantic enthusiastic crowds for Romney week after week in the swing states, while obama could barely fill a high school gym. The psycho lying media can write anything they want. I know what I saw with my own eyes. The vote was manipulated and unless we are able to uncover the real numbers, there is simply no reason to ever vote again.

Again...I am reminded of reports of “sensitive” touch screens on machines.
I am also reminded of a New Mexico TV station scrolling election “results” 2 weeks before the election. Same story with an Ohio website.

I don’t believe 3 million sat home - although I do believe their votes “disappeared”

The results were pre-determined.
