Skip to comments.On a Largely Blue Island, an Exception: Trump Tower (91 NYC districts 100% Obama?)

Its black glass exterior soars high above Fifth Avenue, and its gold-tipped revolving doors have spun the likes of Bruce Willis and Anne Hathaway into its waterfall-splashed atrium.
But on Election Day, Trump Tower earned a different sort of distinction: a tiny island of Romneyville amid Manhattans deep, blue-state sea.
Mr. Romney won a single Manhattan precinct outright, a stretch of Park Avenue near the Waldorf-Astoria, where six voters showed up and four chose the Republican. But he suffered a resounding defeat in New York, a rare outbreak of consensus in a city famous for fevered disagreement: in 91 of the citys 5,286 precincts, Mr. Obama received 100 percent of the vote.

Communists controlled this election.
If Russia updates their Nuclear first strike list, I will help them prioritize it for free.
Just a little joke BOR.
I’d be embarrassed to live in such a brain-dead part of the country, where everyone thinks and votes alike. It smacks of the old Soviet Union.
What happened in these same districts in 2008 ???
What did McCain/Palin get 4 years ago, compare side by side with 2012, district by district.
This is what Dems refer to as “Ground Game”. Most of us just call it fraud.
It appears as though the ballot box thing doesn’t work in this country anymore. 2012 was all the proof anyone needs of that.
Even if there were not some sort of fraud to prevent a single Romney vote out of 400 and these ghetto blacks were allowed to vote freely, how many of them would vote for Romney? 4% or 16 out of 400 like the rest of the blacks? Probably less. A handful of votes out of 400 is probably the right number for that population. Getting zero in a few percent of the precincts may be luck or some voter coaching or an gang agreement or something like that.
Does it really matter that Romney got zero instead of the 4 that he should have gotten? Practically speaking, it does not.
See post 6.
And yet take a look at any of the secession threads right here at FreeRepublic (and there are a ton of them!) and you’ll see endless posts from FReepers who are close to violently opposed to living amid leftists.
The truth is that, although it wasn’t a razor-thin win for Øbongo, it was a close election. 48 or 49% of us expressed our opposition to the Øbomunist (personally I believe that it was higher but vote fraud padded his tally).
Romney just failed to convey the urgency of the awaiting disaster that is Øbongo 2.0 and now we get to live with the results.
Communists controlled this election and the GOP look on without surprise
91 precincts at 100% = Why even bother pretending anymore? America has died, not with a bang but a whimper.
I don't know but the article says it was "a rare outbreak of consensus in a city famous for fevered disagreement" so that says something.
Prelude to War.
You were doing good until the ‘Romney failed’ part; This statement lends credence to this election being a valid one, which IT WASN’T. 0bama had a FRAUD ARMY called Unions.
Only problem with your logic is that in the precincts where Obama gets 400 votes and Romney ZERO! Were there really 400 legitimate voters there? Or are some fraudsters voting for dead or fictitious people via absentee ballot or early voting? With early voting a scamster can vote a few times if there is no photo ID requirement
It doesn't but I would love to see a statistician look at cities with a critical eye.
How many precincts votes at 50%, 60&, 70% or 80% of the registered voters? Too high a % indicates that fraud of bulk voting is in effect, especially in states with massive early voting.
What is the comparison of registered voters to the latest census estimates? Any more precincts voting 120% of the population?
What is the age distribution of voters in a precinct? A precinct that has thousands of voters over 80 y.o. is an anomaly.
What is the percentage of voters to the census estimate of voters (residents less illegals and prisoners)?
One that I would love to see - many precincts across the country consist of a single high rise building. What has changed over the years?
Some states publish a list of the people who voted - not how they voted but the fact that they voted in a primary or another election. What can be discovered about college student voting patterns? Especially CO and WA - beacons of vote fraud this year.
Would those be the precincts above 116th street?
Those are not unusual numbers. In the Cuyahoga data there are those kinds of numbers in both D and R areas: http://boe.cuyahogacounty.us/pdf_boe/en-US/ElectionResults2012/11062012UnofficialResultsbyPrecinct.HTM (top table on that page has turnout).
Any more precincts voting 120% of the population?
No, in the data above. Also no in the data I looked at for VIrginia.
The rest of your points are reasons for regular voter roll verification except for college students. They could obvious vote absentee in their home state and as absentee or in-person in their college state. I'm not sure if there is any cross-state checking.
Saul Alinsky-type tactics were used in this election — Go the opposite way than what is anticipated: Certainly, as anticipated, there was significant vote fraud that gave Obama votes. But, the un-anticipated — vote fraud that probably even more significantly, TOOK ROMNEY VOTES AWAY. It wouldn’t have mattered in New York, but other areas, it may well have mattered.
Probably. These were between 50 to 70% turnout. The blacks in the country as a whole voted 4% Romney so these inner city blacks were probably 1%. That means out of the 400 there would be 4 Romney votes. The zero vote totals should not be surprising because of the hundreds of all black inner city precincts where the clan or gang is much higher priority than America.
I agree with you. I am actually surprised there aren’t more of these 0 Romney vote precincts. In the inner cities of crime-ridden locations, there is probably not a single Republican voter. That is not hard to believe. It would actually be more surprising if you found a single R voter there...
I disagree. Statistically, it is highly improbable that, taken as an aggregate, that there wouldn’t be at least one vote (error or otherwise) for Romney.
100% is extremely unlikely, even with a homogenous demographic.
However, all things (political parties) are not equal. The Republican brand is so extraordinarily toxic in inner cities that such a random occurence would in fact be close to impossible. There may even be some mechanism to prevent or avoid mistaken Republican votes (which would send off red flags everywhere) in such precincts.
I think we are fighting a dire situation - for a large segment of the population (around 40%), voting Republican is like committing suicide (or so they believe).
