Pretty sure there are millions of military ballots that will swing that final tally.

What this tells me is that for every 53% who are a productive part of the system, 6% are functional morons.

How great it is to define a moron as somebody who doesn't share your opinion!

Romeny is the same person Obama is....just different rhetoric.

Direkcshun loves playing the left/right game....makes him feel like he's part of a winning team.

What's this 53%? Obama was 50.6% and Romney 47.8%.

And the remaining 47% of the 53% are non-functional morons. ROFL

The "none of the above" counts would be interesting to see. Those registered to vote that did not and, those eligible to vote that didn’t bother to register.

Oh, I've seen those too. I'd have to go find them but a lot less people voted. In fact a viewing of those numbers shows a large dissatisfaction with the choices. The Ds got their base out, and bribed enough of them to do so. That's what FDR did to get reelected too.

There are 207.6 million eligible voters in the U.S. The number who voted is 123.7 million. About 40.4 percent didn't vote. Obama won with 62.6 million votes. He got 30.2 percent of eligible voters' possible votes. Romney, of course, did slightly worse. ( Courtesy of Michael Rozeff who is neither right nor left)

Plus Obama won by 7.25% last time but this time by 2.8% and he didn't win the Independent vote either.

IMO this shows unhappiness with the candidate choices. Polls during the election season showed the same, including unhappiness with both parties. Not liking the direction of the country is another thing that has consistently shown in polls starting under Bush in his second term.

Rather than getting too cocky, I'd say both parties have work to do.

Yes there was. Obama won by a landslide. Reagan won by a complete and utter dismatling of Carter. Annihilation would be another good word to use.

But I agree wholeheartedly with your "both parties need work" statement. Both parties need a big time enema.

Nope. Obama won handily but not by a landslide.

Bowser,
Reagan did not win in an complete and utter dismantling of Carter either. That was true electorally. The EC is designed to create a clear winner. Popular vote wise he won by 10%'ish. That's more than Obama and yet that was considered a landslide. There's been other elections where the popular vote was as much as 60% and some in the 30% range.

Your numbers are a bit out of date. 127.4 million votes have now been counted. The difference between the two candidates are now just over 3.0%. The reason Obama didn't win independents is because Republicans self-identified as independents in larger numbers. The 64 million plus votes is the 2nd highest in history. Your statements otherwise lack historical context.

Your numbers for the 80 election are also off. It was Reagan 43,904,153 (50.7%), Carter 35,483,883 (41.0%).
