And now we are to believe that people who are described as too benighted to come up with a photo ID to vote did not accidentally cast even one ballot for Mitt Romney?

I think it was because the GOPers there forgot that they put up those signs that said "VOTE November 7th!".

.

I take it that Mitt didn't own a vacation home in any of those districts. Seriously there were 59 districts. What are the chances that he didn't own a home in at least one of them?

Is this the same state that had the New Black Panthers standing outside voting site, drawing murals of Obama in font of the voting booths, and having electonic voting machines picking Obama when voters clearly picked Romney?  No wonder Dems dont want voter ID law.

100% is impossible.  A zero percent error rate is impossible.  Out of thousands of votes not one voter hit the button for Romney?  Even a very small error rate would have given Romney dozens of votes.  This means that that ballots were not counted and shows proof of voter fraud.

That number seems off. A little high actually.

100 percent - the number of times this will be suspect as voter fraud and not one single time about the real voter suppression that plagued the runup.

Let the media beating of the dead horse begin.

@sacredh Wouldn't have done any good. He lost every place he had a house.

Me earlier - Of course not; it was that crazy black panther guy who stopped all those Romney lovin' minorities from showing their true love.

It doesn't take a great mind to understand righties - it's just a matter of endangering sanity to go where no sane person does.

Unlike everyother news media outlet out there that was in love with obama.  Ive never seen anything like it.

You mean the one guy that wasn't intimidating anyone but had Fox news soiling themselves?

@ahandout If these were electronic voting machines, I'd be very curious and want to check them.  However, I'm sure that if they were, that would be part of the subject line and it would be near impossible to lose that many votes.

Also, if those districts are predominantly black, the probability of this actually becomes higher than the probability that they split the district.

@ahandout "Proof"

You keep using that word; I do not think you know what it means.

It couldn't possibly have anything to do with painting our President of color as some "other" that wasn't a true American. My guess is that message resonated differently in the news rooms than it did in diverse communities.

@S_Deemer @curt3rd I was amazed when I read about Narwhal. I knew the Obama campaign was masterful in its use of new technology, but I had no idea just how far advanced they were.

And Orca was stunning simply because it was such a massive failure. Romney may actually have run the most incompetent campaign in modern history.

Well seeing as you watch Fox, I'm pretty sure you've seen something like a biased media before.

@NP042 @ahandout  When something is statistically impossible, that's proof.  It would be like flipping a coin 100 times and having it come up heads each and every time. 

Even human error would discount 100% to one candidate.

Not the fact that GOPs outreach to minorities looks like a pointy ten foot pole and the flag bearer is Vlad the Impaler.

That's a lot of trust and love.

Or realizing that the policies Romney was talking about would cost everyone who wasn't a millionaire more in taxes, with cuts to their social net..

That is not proof, it's not statistically impossible for voting blocks to vote zero for a candidate.  It's highly unlikely, but not impossible.  You can thank gerrymandering for that.
