Obama Wins by Going Negative and Turning Out Base

I have a question for Mr. Barone. Why is it that the right wing media won't even mention the possibility that the election was rigged by leftists in the Obama regime, starting with Axlerod who is a communist? Clearly there is evidence of vote tampering and trouble with the machines. This a national embarrassment and should be at the top of the news.
Lukewarm. That's the feeling I get from the election numbers.

Turnout was apparently down, at least as a percentage of eligible voters. The president was re-elected by a reduced margin. The challenger didn't inspire the turnout surge he needed.

Every re-elected president since Andrew Jackson has won with an increased popular vote percentage. Barack Obama didn't. He won 53 percent to 46 percent in 2008. His numbers as I write are 50 percent to 48 percent over Mitt Romney. That could go up to 51 percent to 48 percent when California finishes its count, which took five weeks in 2008.

Obama owes most...
