Wouldn't it be kind of poetic if Romney won 47% of the vote in this election?

Just saying.

3. Long as Obama wins one more popular vote and 270 or more electoral 47 though is possible

 

could be 51 to 47 to 2 for others

4. That would be poetic.

But I don't think he should get votes from more than the people he will actually support--say around 1% of the total vote.

6. --- Better still: 1% for Mitt, 99% for Obama

Closer to the truth of where the representation and benefits lay.

13. tanj! Somebody beat me to my joke

But I would have delivered it like this

Reply title - It would be more poetic

Message text - if he only got 1% of the vote.


I think you get more punch if people have to wait for the punch line

7. That's actually EXACTLY what I'm expecting.

 

About a point more than McCain got in 2008.

10. Well that is including the 1% that are going to vote for him and the tea party and the

fundamentalist Christians and the plain old uninformed. I think he will get less personally unless there is hanky panky with the voting machines.

11. It would be even better if it was EXACTLY 47% by official numbers.

14. it would be even more poetic if Obama got 47%

Romney got 53%





wait for it










and Obama still won the electoral college by a large margin.

It would be worth it just to see the heads exploding all over Fox News and the rightwing blogosphere.

Obama would still be President and there wouldn't be a damn thing they could do about it.

Except be completely obstructionist if they keep control of the House.

Which they are likely to do anyway if they keep control of the House.

And have large Tea Party rallies if they lose control of the House.

Which they are likely to do anyway if they lose control of the House.
