13. Only if the candidate is a republic.....

 

if they are anything less than that then they ignore the significant electoral win. Then they look at the popular vote and say it is only 3% but disavow how many people that represents.

Trust me if Robme had won by that much they would be calling it a landslide but not if it is a Democrat.

6. Does this put Allen West to rest?

I would think if the state's ballots are now certified, that means they found no 'shenanigans' in his district.

Of course, I doubt he will every actually concede - I could see him showing up, next term, trying to claim his seat, even though Patrick Murphy will be sitting on it. I'm guessing his middle name is 'Delusional'.

8. I think he's continuing his suit

even though he doesn't have a leg to stand on and he's been denied by one judge already. I agree, he won't concede. I'll expect to see him with his hand on his own Bible, taking his oath alongside the legitimate legislative winners. (That would be a hoot, actually!)

He should realize he's probably guaranteed a new job - on Fox "News". I understand Sarah Palin's spot is available.

...Mitt Romney, 47.9.

12. That popular vote total is not yet complete

for example, in CA:
http://vote.sos.ca.gov/returns/president/
Barack Obama (DEM) 5,958,059 59.2%
Mitt Romney (REP) 3,870,455 38.5%

On Huff Post for CA:
Barack Obama 5,863,499 59.1% (missing nearly 100,000 Obama votes)
Mitt Romney 3,816,757 38.5%

But it's getting close and might only shift a decimal point in the margin.

other examples
There are half a million ballots not yet counted in AZ

There are tens of thousands, if not more, of provisional ballots in OH that won't start to get counted for nearly a week - even though Ohio reports 100% complete.

Oregon & WA are not finished. There are other states that are not 100%.

Bush got 62,040,606 in 2004. I'd like to see Obama pass him to help deal with the mandate argument. I'll let you know if and when he does.

know the outcome for Arizona just yet, which means we do not have the final vote tallies.

18. There's hundreds of thousands of prov./absentee ballots yet to be counted in CA & AZ.

That should push Romney down even further in the popular vote.

21. Karl Rove says it's still not over until every vote is in and still wants a recount.

He'll want to keep recounting until the white guy wins.

28. Arizona Is Still Counting

As of Friday night Arizona still had 172,000 provisional and another 400,000 absentee ballots to count. The odds are high that the mostly Hispanic provisional ballots will be tossed. The election official in Maricopa County said those voters did not come to the polls prepared. They came prepared to vote and were simply shooed over to the provisional ballot line.

32. Want a good laugh? I had two Romney supporters say to me that it was close, that Obama narrowly

....won the election, the other said Obama "barely" won it!!!! One was my neighbor, a very wealthy and educated person. The other was my car mechanic who as I went to pick up my very Obama/Anti-Romney sticker covered wagon said it to me.


Ha hahahahaha....narrow and barely....whoa....they are really hurting on this one to feel better....

Denial is a powerful thing....can make a person believe a lot of things.....

34. How can Romney take office with those Numbers ?

1994 was a big republican year and he missed that wave. Overall, Romney is just a horrible candidate.
