A couple 2012 presidential election popular vote stats


The top five states with the most voters

1. California
2. Florida
3. Texas
4. New York
5. Pennsylvania


The top five states where President Obama received the most (of his) votes

1. California
2. Florida
3. New York
4. Texas
5. Pennsylvania Illinois

Note: Votes are still being added, so some stats may change.


If you go to this link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_presidential_election,_2012#Results

then scroll down a little ways under the maps to where it says: Votes by state
you can play with the down/up arrows on the CHART to get different sort results in ascending or descending order - in all of the different columns

2. I think that's asking for a lot.

I think its going to take at least a couple more cycles for those states to even turn competitive. Obama's numbers in all three of them went down this year as compared to 08.

8. I don't know about Georgia or South Carolina

I feel like if there's any Democratic candidate who could have won those states, it's Obama.

7. IMO if there truly was huge Mormon turnout it wouldn't make a difference

a) not enough of them in the right places
b) increase of possible Mormons voting probably minimal over past years
c) any increase possibly offset by those not voting because of Romney being a Mormon
