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.
Notice how all of the loudmouths on the Topix forums are missing in action today?
Mitch McKKKonnell needs to go, he's a divisive figure who's grossly outdated.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?

good grief, when there's no more room in hell, the dead shall rise and come back as Democrats. I saw the results. Looks like a repeat from 2008 for the President and 2010 for the House. All Romney did was flip two states from the last election; that's not enough. He got 70% of the Hispanics and I'm not even going to mention the Blacks. I also noticed Romney captured the majority for ages 45 to 64 and a lot more for 65 and older. A clear sign that they know Obama's Healthcare Tax Bill kills Medicare and cuts benefits to the elderly; what a crock. Romney from the start had little chance; he was fighting two wars; Obama and the elite media who demonized him from the start. But like I always post after every election, "You wanted him, You got him". I'm over it because I know I made the correct choice; your re-elected President is going to bomb...big time.

The best man won. President Barack Obama. The Fuktard got no votes, no swing states. He had no plan. Your party has once again been revealed as the racist party of old white men. Obamacare is here to stay and everyone loves it. Look how you blame the media instead of taking responsibility yourself.

The media had declared a dead heat going into election day. Yet "the media" were probably mislead by the biased reports from Breitbart (glad he is dead) and that Rasmussan who's polling math makes no sense. Divide Obama's age by what year it is... ohh, look, a negative number. What a crock of dogcrap.

America! love it or leave it douche.

No, I'm staying in America you thin-skinned dipshit; what I have to do is get out of New York and move to a Red State. All the majority does in Blue States is scream racism whenever they don't get their own way. As far as blaming the media, well over 100 people died from the storm yet your Media God from MSNBC was "so glad we had that storm last week". Anyone who takes political points from someone who thinks like that should be lobotomized. I don't need the media's help when I cast a vote, but you Obamatron's can't live without it from all the Cutting and Pasting you do on here

Don't let the door hit you on the way out. You obviously don't have the chops to live in New York.

The gop can't get any blacks, latinos or females to vote for them because they are the party of racism. They are just too stupid to see it, like you, and your buddy Rush Limburger.

You wanna talk about governmental responsiblity for a storm? Katrina=1800 dead. Your republican government at work. "Good job Brownie", remember that? Everyone else does.

You cry like a little pussey when you don't get your way. Eat your peas.

The latest popular vote tally was 60,579,325 for Obama and 57,759,145 for Romney last time I checked. That total is without Florida which Obama is expected to win.

Still that is a difference of 2,820,180 votes. 303 to 206 Electoral votes without Florida.

That is pretty much a landslide.

Donít look at the red State Ė blue State map and think it was a close race.
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 less have half of the above vote difference, one can turn SD, ND, MT, WY, NE, Miss and Ark from red to blue. If think the election was close, start using the vote difference to turn red States into blue States and the big red swath in low population States disappears.

Try it:
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/11/07/who-...

Lots of Republicans look at the map of the red and blue and see a swath of red States. But they are looking at empty 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. He won by over 100 electoral votes some of those western States only have 3 or 4 electoral votes.


It was not a close election even though Republicans like to claim it was. They never seen it coming because they bought into their self-created bubble echo chamber of Fox News political carnival barkers on TV and the right wing talk jocks like Rush on the radio and there is a lot of them.

They have been blowing the white dog whistle for four years with racial imprecations to the point of putting outhouses representing the Whitehouse on flatbeds in public parades with signs about cleaning out the Whitehouse and re-painting it again. Too much insinuated but denied racism that it got to be accepted and spread in emails as if it was ok.

Then there was elected Congressional Republicans refusing to govern believing they were elected to make Obama a one term President or saying NOHELLNO to everything. We elect them to govern not just follow a party line to win the next election

A lot of voters were turned off against Republicans because of the heavy handed tactics that they resorted to. There was the concerted effort of Republican governors in swing State to suppress the voter turnout in Democrat areas. It was a unified and planned effort by Republican governors to suppress the vote in certain States in the USA. The republicans created a pseudo scandal to support their fictitious claim that voter fraud is a problem.

We pride ourselves in being a Democracy and want the right to vote spread around the world. We send young men and women to die giving that right to others who proudly hold up a purple index finger to show they voted but we stood by and watched clear voter suppression happen in the USA in a number of different ways and that is sad.

Iím one 45 year Republican who does not like the craziness that seems to drive the Republican Party of today.

Truth always gets in the way of those who live in a delusional world where reality dosen't exist.
There's a lot of those types who invade this forum daily with their racist rants and quantum reality.
They're the bottom feeders of American society who would never amount to nothing no matter who's in the White House.
I agree with you fully.

Wow, you are really having a tough time with accepting what happened. So what if Obama got the majority of Hispanics and blacks. He likely got the majority of everyone but the pure lilly white older men who were listening to the white dog whistle that has been blown for over four years.
Regardless of the "chance" Romney had you and the rest picked him out of what you considered your best. I would propose that other than maybe Pawlenty or Huntsman the rest would have got beaten worse.
Like I always post after every election, "WE wanted him, and now WE got him" right where WE want him so get used to the idea.

Jessu, Mary and Joseph you can't handle the truth can you? You and your gop friends did more damage to this country than the Great Depression.

Likely President Obama will still have problems dealing with Republicans in Congress but he can be tougher with them since he won't stand for re-election.

The one major thing that his re-election presents is a chance to change the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court. The more the better.

That would have a long term affect and curb some of the right wing crazy stuff.

I also hope he can do something about voter supression.

The Republicans tried every dirty and diabolical trick with that voter suppression crap they could and still lost.
It just goes to show how desperate and how low they would sink to unseat President Obama, but as usual they came out on the bottom.
Wrong as usual and under estimated the American voters.
If they don't get their ideology up to speed with the new majority and changing demographics, they'll never win another national election.
They have to understand that the 50"s and 60's are long over with never to return.

Interesting how only on of the rightwing nuts came back and suffered some abuse.

The rest as I predicted will disappear for a few months and then be back with all their gloom.

You called it correctly.
The rightwing supporting nuts have stayed off Topix in droves, one or two of them got brave and said some things that were pointless, senseless and off topic and they got abused.
Some of them will stay absent until the next Fox News manufactured controversy.
This wouldn't be Topix without the rightwing parrots.

After this humiliating loss by the GOP, there won't be a next great Republican hope for sometime to come.
Their messages are outdated, unrealistic and out of touch with modern day America.

Right now they are doing a lot of teeth gashing along with pointing blame back and forth.

I thought Rush Limbaugh was going to have a heart attack for a couple of days. Now he says he's got it all figured out and acts like he say it all comming in his make believe world. Hannidy listens to Rush and then takes off from whatever Rush is babbling about.

The one nut that had to completely turn what he said before the election upside down was Dick Morris. Little worm is hard to watch.

It might take a while for the Republicans to get their wind back after getting the stuffing knocked out of them. They live in a bubble world echo chamber where they believe everything they hear echoing off each other.

They might learn something if they would quit listening to Rush all day on the radio and Fixed News all night.

Of course Fixed News claims everyother outlet is a liberal rag which is done to justify themselves. Every other news source presents a more balanced and true political news.

There's no question about it, they're finger pointing and trying to figure out why the strategy they used did not work.
They attacked the president each day in reichwing media land on issues that really had no substance or value and the majority of it was made up to incite whomever listens to that crap.
Hannity and Limbaugh were the worst, they spent the last 4 years attacking Obama on anything.
As for Morris and his parody as an "angry conservative" is laughable. He was formally in the Clinton Administration.
He looked really stupid after the election when he proclaimed Romney would win the election by a "landslide".
Fox News is going to say anything to justify their twisted take on things and no one should be surprised, it's what they do best; lie.
They remind me of the old WWF, characters postering, huffing and puffing all the while you know it's fake and scripted.
I agree, the other media outlets do present a more balanced approach and truth.

No time soon, the party out of power is fast becoming the party out of sight, out of mind.
Irrelevancy is on the horizon for that bunch if they do not get up to speed.
