Obama Likely Won Re-Election Through Election Fraud

Data you might find interesting: In 2012 16.7% of Ohio voters that voted for a presidential candidate choose not to vote for a congressmen. In 2004 that figure was 7.9% and in 2008 it was 5.8%. In Ohio more than double the amount of voters who voted for president did not vote for a congressman in 2012 when compared to the previous 2 presidential election cycles. Is this a coincidental anomaly or did more votes for president get thrown in somehow?

I compiled my data using AP data via the Politico site. I compared the total number of votes cast for president to the total combined votes cast for all congressional districts in Ohio. The difference between those numbers was more than double (nearly 900,000 fewer votes for all Cong. races)

in 2012 compared to 2004 (444,000) and 2008 (329,000) election cycles. I understand some people will vote for president and not a congressman, but when that number more than doubles from previous cycles it seems a little odd.

Now, this is good stuff. Far better and more defensible than the "we were robbed" garbage most people are throwing out. You've taken real data and made what I think are logical assertions. I only hope someone in the media picks up on this and carries it to the next step.

I have tried to provide this info to some (who I consider) reliable folks in the media, and I did receive one response. We'll see if it goes anywhere
I live in CA and it's hard to live where conservatives and libertarians have little to no power, along with an electorate that once again voted for more taxes. They are under some illusion that this will help education just like the $100 billion/yr used by the Dept. of Education and the $billion from the stimulus that went to the CA Education Dept.
Back the topic at hand: I have friends who like myself feel that something just isn't right about this election. One of the most glaring is the fact that Romney rec'd fewer votes than McCain. Does that even make sense?

This is just the kind of thing Hannity would love to run with if there was any truth to it. I have no idea about that part, and I'm taking you at your word that the data you have offered is defensible. But if it is, it's enough to give substance to the argument. I agree that Romney not getting as many votes as McCain doesn't pass the smell test. But Obama received about 9 million fewer votes in 2012 than he did in 2008, too. And if there was widespread voter fraud, the cheaters certainly wouldn't have allowed that to happen, would they?

9 million fewer is makes sense knowing what the last 4 years have wrought. I am sure they knew votes would be down some, but in Ohio there were only 303,000 fewer votes cast (a little over 5% fewer.) They know the rough numbers they were dealing with. If they got 9 million fewer votes it says 2 things: 1) People have gotten apathetic because of the economy and didn't think voting would make a difference, since it didn't 2008 and 2) 9 million folks did not think Obama was the answer. The idea of fraud is to make the results seem plausible, trying to recoup 9 million votes would not be plausible.

Give it a rest. You lost. Deal with it.

There were many factors that hurt Mitt Romney and favored Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential election. The Democrats portrayed Romney in the worst light possible; as a wealthy, out of touch millionaire who wanted to return women to the 1800's. The left wing media predictably did everything it could to perpetuate that false caricature. Obama's race was an advantage; voters of all persuasions, particularly minorities, still cannot get over the allure of the first black president. The 47% of Americans on welfare were predisposed to vote for the food stamp president over Romney, wanting the free goodies to keep...
