66. I know of at least one wingnut who claims "Obama edged past Romney"

Ann Coulter:

"We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.

"Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win." (emphasis mine)

In Coulterland, every predictor, including Nate Silver, whose state-by-state electoral predictions were 100% correct, was wrong.

But here's where it gets truly bizarre:

"The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with Republicans around the middle of the last decade. And yet in 2004, President George W. Bush beat John Kerry more handily than Obama edged past Romney this week." (emphasis mine)

Reality:

2004: Bush 286, Kerry 252.

2012: Obama 332, Romney 206.
