Notice how all of the loudmouths on the Topix forums are missing in action today?The latest popular vote tally was 60,579,325 for Obama and 57,759,145 for Romney. Without Florida which Obama is expected to win.
That is a difference of 2,820,180. 303 to 206 Electoral votes without Florida.
That is pretty much a landslide. That 2,820,189 vote difference would turn a lot of Red States into Blue States if the population of the USA was spread out evenly. Using 1,065,550 votes, less have half the above one can turn SD, ND, MT, WY, NE, Miss and Ark from red to blue. Try it yourself:
Lots of Republicans look at the map of the red and blue and see a swath of red States. But they are looking at acres of land and not voters or Electoral College votes.
One should look at the difference in the Electoral College votes to see that Obama won pretty big.
If you don't like looking at it that way start using the vote difference to turn red States into blue States and the big swath in low population States disappears.
Then one should also take into consideration there is still a couple of States where the popular vote is not in but Obama won.
Hopefully Mitch McConnell will get beat in the mid-terms.
Mitch McKKKonnell needs to go, he's a divisive figure who's grossly outdated.
Wonder how his plan to make Obama a "one term president" is going?
