9. Sorry Powell didn't win that seat..

I donated to his campaign. Hope he runs again in 2014. Cantor should make an even bigger ass of himself by then.

3. Three--George W. Bush in 2004

62,040,610.

Sorry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2004

But Obama has gotten the two highest in history in terms of total popular vote numbers. When all is said and done Obama will end up with something more than 63 million votes in 2012.

18. Do you realize that going by popular vote alone, Dems have won the last 5 out of 6 elections?

And yes, I'm fully aware that Gore should have won the electoral vote in 2000 and I'm pretty sure that Kerry rightfully won the presidency in 2004 as well, but the bottom line is that if had we had fair elections, Dems would have won a minimum of 5 out of the last 6 presidential elections.

So pundits and teabaggers everywhere, can we finally put to rest the ridiculous notion that America is a center right country?
