Data Points To A Powerful Romney
Campaign – And Yet…He Lost.

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:LOL Thomas, 11/7/2012 7:48:54 PM

Received this link from Insider this afternoon and told to look it over carefully.  They remain completely confounded as to how the reported #s and final results appear to directly conflict with data such as appears in this link. (Snip) Mitt Romney earned MORE votes among liberals, moderates, and conservatives than were cast for the Republican candidate in 2008 – in fact, this improvement was by a full 7% over 2008 – a very significant improvement.  Mitt Romney earned more votes from Protestants, Catholics, and Jews than the Republican nominee received in 2008, including a 9-point improvement among Jewish voters

When you read the rest of the data, you’ll also see that a number of blacks shifted from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012. The enigma deepens . . .

Golly folks, do you suppose there was some voter fraud the dems are so famous for?

I feel like they figured out how to steal votes, whether it was through manipulation of the machines, the EV, or however, that's my belief.

I truly despise what happened. I really don't believe what happened.

Libtards spent the last 4 years generating voter registrations they could use for ballot box stuffing, When you have billions and there is no downside you can produce a lot of votes, without having to get the voters to come out and support you..
When such traitors start getting taken outside to the back of the courthouse by a sheriffs' deputy who then puts a round through their head (after a fair trial, of course) you'll see such behavior drop off.

No.....they just turned out more voters looking for their ObamaPhone.

These are exit POLLS, not real data. They have a margin of error and are impossible to validate. You will never win in a court of law with polls.

This is truly a cliche about elections, being crooked, but, I just could not believe that Romney all of a sudden was losing NC, Florida, Virginia (where he has been ahead all night). It seemed that Rasmuusen and Gallup, the two most respected pollsters, got it wrong and every other poll had it right. I still believe they knew how to puts votes in machines or something... the Dems created I believe.

I said it last night. There needs to be an independent investigation. It may not help after Romney's concession, but it will help to delegitimize the Won. There is no way he could have won this election without stealing it.

Keep praying hard for a miracle. If God doesn't intervene for us, we'll never recover from this.

A physician friend who votes at the same place I do told me today that when he started the voting process yesterday, the ballot was marked for Obama. He couldn't erase or reverse it, and finally had to ask the guy in charge of the poling place to erase the obama vote. How many of us would make the effort? This is surreal.

Back in my kid advertising account exec days, when I had to keep spreadsheets with pencil and green paper, my smart account supervisor told me to always eyeball the calculations, no matter how carefully made, for something called logic. The split nature of the results and the way they were reported don't meet the eyeball test. I do wish Romney had pressed for recounts, although I think their fatal error of the campaign was the loss of momentum experienced with Hurricane Sandy.

I keep thinking--what if Romney had bought national TV (net and cable) time late last week, to deliver a final message of change and recovery--and as part of it places where aid could be donated. What if the Romney people had forestalled Christie's big hug with Obama by flying Romney or Ryan into NJ--or making it very clear that if Christie invited Obama in that he may as well leave the Republican party. (Look for Christie to go 'independent' or Democrat in 2013, if he doesn't wind up in Washington.)

But what can you do when God gives you one final test, one more challenge and we fail it?

You can't look at the exit polls, they just tell you about the people that voted. 2 million McCain supporters didn't vote this time. Just like in 06, Evangelicals stayed home. Think back to all of the Mormon hatred that use to exist here at L.com those people didn't change their hearts, they just stayed home.

Reply 17 - Posted by: Fosterdad, 11/7/2012 9:03:11 PM     (No. 8998245)

#16 is right. Romney got 2.5 million fewer votes than McCain. Someone stayed home and I suspect it was Evangelicals who let anti-Mormon bigotry get the best of them. I hope I'm wrong, but I cannot for the life of me imagine anyone voting for McCain, yet staying home this time. If there's another explanation, I'd like to hear it.

Now 0bama got 9 million fewer votes than he did in '08. That I expected. But the GOP drop off totally defies all logic.

I don't believe for a second that more people voted for McCain than Romney. Everyone I spoke to, eveything I read pointed to a very high turnout. Obama won like Chavez, Putin, and Saddam won.

The Muslims declared war on America decades ago and it took us until 9/11/01 to realize that we were at war. The progressives are at war with us and I still don't think we have realized it yet. When the republicans realize we're at war, maybe something will improve on our side. This is a cold war, a cold civil war.

It was rigged. They have been planning it for a long time. I believe the Republicans were involved. My first red flag was no campaigning. Just enough to keep the cover. I kept asking this over and over. Why not? You don't have to watch Fox or the others to know this. Republicans came on with Democrats to keep us distracted while possibly Sec of States were busy setting up the fraud. They keep knocking off conservatives one by one. Why wasn't Ted Cruz who swears he is a conservative knocked off? Simple, he isn't. Obama has never run anything but an illegal election. Obama is the perfect idiot just like Hitler to be the front for this. He intentionally has not let us know who he is to mainly keep us distracted. Yes, he should be investigated. The entire thing is a crock and no it's not the voters fault both sides. It is the fault of the government, bankers, businessmen and one world government. They can't take over unless they destroy America. I can now see why their was little campaigning. The fix was in.

I'm about as weary of hearing the Mormon card played as I am with the race card. Of course there were Conservatives who sat this one out - the anger after the McLame campaign led many (and we knew them here) to say that they would never be used again as pawns for the RNC. I agree that fraud could be a factor (perhaps even THE factor), but any loss of Conservative voters was a message to the RNC as much as it was a repudiation of a weakly conservative candidate.

I do hope some legal group investigates these results - especially the loss of military ballots in a suspicious plane crash.

#22 is onto something. The Republican candidates in Missouri did absolutely no campaigning. Akin was the only Republican heard of and that was negative from both sides. Romney won the state but many of the other races went Democrat which doesn't make much sense either. The results just look really odd to me.

I think the DNC machine looked at all the missing names in the registers they could find (in the key states), then plugged in "all Dem party" ballots with those names that didn't show this time. They could still be filling in fake signatures right now as we type.

re #17 -- I have another explanation. He is considered by the Righteous Right to be a flip-flopper, a RINO, &/or a moderate. They voted for McCain last time holding their nose, & were bitterly disappointed. They are mad at the GOP for continuing to give us candidates too close to a Dem, so this time they stayed home to teach them a lesson.

There may be a small percentage that wouldn't vote for a Mormon, but there is an even more complex reason for that. It has to do with having a "gut", and critical thinking abilities, which some believe is drummed-out of young Mormon men. I voted for him this time & in the last election, but I've heard discussions about that.

Was it Karl Marx who said "It doesn't matter who votes, it only matters who counts the votes". As I understand, a lot of the voting machine companies are owned by George Soros. Would he have any interest in having Obama win?

I think there was massive voter fraud. I think there was at least some of each type of fraud mentioned in this topic.

I agree with #20. I am a Christian and didn't want Romney to get the nominee as I am not a fan of Mormons having lived among them all my life, but I didn't want Obama in again so I voted as did many of my friends. We are not responsible for his loss. I'd like to know why he was string in the first debate, semi-strong in the second and totally a rollover in the third? I would have thought too with all the Mormons in those swing states, he would have had a good ground game just from his church. And speaking of Mormons, how did Love lose in UT, a solidly Mormon state?

In Houston, a woman that used to live at one of our properties told us why she voted a straight democrat ticket, when she was a Romney supporter. The bus driver that picked up everyone at the nursing home to go vote, told them the Republicans planned on killing the Medicare they all received for their medical problems and they all would be kicked out on the street if the republicans won, so they needed to vote straight democrat to save the money they are all getting.

She was very upset when she was talking to our employees, especially after we told her the bus driver was lying to them.

There was massive voter fraud, no doubt. We have been sold out, no doubt. But it saddens me even more that people are starting to blame the Christians. I was thinking earlier this morning that the RINO's and others would do this.

Nothing happens on earth that God does not allow. I prayed hard that he would intervene and that the fraud would be rendered useless. That did not happen. I fear that God's judgement is finally being unleashed on America. For how many years can a nation slaughter innocent babies, to mention just one sinister aspect of decline, and not pay a price?

In 2008, O got over 69 million votes, McCain got almost 60 million votes. Romney received 58 million.

I cannot comprehend how over 2 million McCain voters stayed at home and how we did not receive at least 65 million votes for Romney with the economy as bad as it is.

Something is wrong.

I'm having a tough time getting accurate reporting for the actual vote count.

69 million votes in 2008 and 9 million less this time for obama leaves 60 million for obama. McCain got 60 million in 2008 and Romney got the 58 million, then it's just a short hop to throw in a couple extra million to get obama across the line.

Voter machines by the hundreds we know of switched votes. Add a few trunks full of phony early ballots and the fix is in. It took only a million switches and ballots and you get the 2 million advantage. There have been more than that identified by my count in the last election. The demns sharpened their tools for this election.

I can see no way this election went the way it did.

Don't blame the evangelicals, huge churches were on a 40 days of fasting and prayer and had huge rallies for Romney. What about Ron Paul supporters, would they make up the difference? Somehow, I can't believe they would be receptive to voting for Romney, when they were so bitter at the end. So, Ron Paulers out there, are you the ones that showed us who is boss?? If not, there was voter fraud, it does not feel right and the Chicago mafia was busy, busy in this election. When everyone is shaking their heads and are so shocked, common sense tells you something is wrong!

Where is #22 from? Why the suspicions about Ted Cruz? The answer is that he was elected from Texas and Texas is not Ohio, Michigan, or Wisconsin. We are not full of unionized thugs who run our elections. We do have some problems in our border counties and in Shiela Jackson Lee's district, but for the most of the state, it is still mostly sane.

We are expecting more "revenge" and "punish our enemies" coming from Washington, Obama, and Valerie Jarrett.

One more thing, if voter fraud is the answer, then it is a bridge too far to blame Repubs, this was straight from George Soros and the Chicago Mafia. With all the time and money, they figured out the game plan to steal the election like their socialist playbook reveals. How is it proved? That's the problem.

Morsy ouster brings $8 billion

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

There were few complaints at the Woodruff polls as South Carolina´s new voter photo ID requirement was enforced for the first time in Spartanburg County. The re-do election for mayor in Woodruff is the first Spartanburg County election since the photo ID requirement went into effect Jan. 1.

To the world beyond the Beltway, it might not mean much that Bob Woodward of the famed Watergate duo went public with his recent White House run-in. This would be an oversight. (Snip) Distrust of media, encouraged by alternative media seeking to enhance their own standing, has become a tool useful to the very powers the Fourth Estate was constitutionally endowed to monitor.

There are two stories circulating around Bob Woodward this morning. (Snip) But the White House also wanted the issue to disappear until after the election, so in conjunction with Congress it proposed (and the President specifically endorsed) an enforcement mechanism called sequestration. In exchange for agreeing to a package of $1.2T in cuts with no revenues as a failsafe, Republicans agreed to raise the debt limit high enough that it would not be reached until after the election. The significant point is that the trigger for sequestration was not the same date as the implementation date.

The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen. "My salesperson wanted to give her the handbag in her hand. But she didn´t want

Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American. Take this latest incident in Switzerland, where "The Butler" star went to attend the nuptials of good friend and singer Tina Turner last month.

While media mogul Oprah Winfrey has been promoting her new film, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” she revealed she was a recent victim of profiling while shopping in a store in Zurich.(Snip)“I was in Zurich the other day at a store, whose name I will not mention,” Winfrey said on “Entertainment Tonight,” “and I didn’t have my eyelashes on, but I was in full Oprah Winfrey gear…but obviously, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is not shown in Zurich. So this doesn’t happen to me unless somebody obviously doesn’t know that it’s me.” Winfrey went on to explain that she was in Zurich for Tina Turner’s wedding,

The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.

Dear Lawrence O´Donnell, Don´t

Tonight, I went on Lawrence O´Donnell´s show, and Lawrence O´Donnell yelled at me. Or, rather, he O´Reilly´d at me. That O´Donnell interrupted and harangued and mansplained and was generally an angry grandpa at me is not what I take issue with, however. What bothers me is that, look: your producers take the time to find experts to come on the show, answer your questions, and, hopefully, clarify the issue at hand.

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges. It should be little surprise then that the Lily Pond Lane home

Forty to 50 House Republicans will support immigration reform, Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) predicted Thursday. Gutiérrez said many of the Republicans supportive of immigration reform don’t want to be identified, but he insisted they would support comprehensive immigration reform. “If they ask me today, go find those 40 to 50 Republicans, I’ll tell them I found them. I know where they’re at,” Gutiérrez said in an interview with Ed O’Keefe at The Washington Post.

President Barack Obama announced Friday afternoon that the White House will publicly release a summary of the legal authorities through which the National Security Agency conducts its controversial surveillance programs. ´Given the history of abuse by governments,´ he said, it is important to explain how such a program is managed, and - equally important - what it may not do. He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.

EDGARTOWN, Mass. — President Barack Obama opened the first summer vacation of his second term Saturday on Martha’s Vineyard, trading Washington debates over the budget, government surveillance and his health care overhaul for a hoped-for carefree week filled with golf, beach outings and hanging-out time with family and friends. (Snip) As Air Force One flew north, Obama got into a vacation mindset by trading his suit and tie for more suitable attire: khakis and a blue shirt with rolled-up sleeves. First lady Michelle Obama, who introduced him at the convention, kept her yellow-and-white

Middle and high school students in San Diego, California will be encouraged to vent their frustration that the world lacks justice when they return to school and participate in the “Trayvon Martin dialogues” this fall. The board of San Diego Unified Schools unanimously approved a proposal recently to establish classroom forums to discuss the death of Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who was shot during an altercation with a Hispanic man, George Zimmerman, in Florida last year. A jury recently acquitted Zimmerman, who claimed that Martin struck first and shot him in self-defense.
