    By the way on the subject of amount of votes, there still is many places that haven’t fully counted their votes

    California for instance still hasn’t fully counted there votes, they are at 70% counted which means we still have about 3M+ votes coming in there, Washington is only at 55% which means we get another 1.5M votes there. I am guessing when all is said and down and counted you will have between 7M-10M more votes split amongst both guys

    @SOUTHPAWS on this site–Are you happy over Obama winning?Hoping for prosperity?Think about the nearly 50 million on food stamps–think about that number will continue to grow.Stay calm Southpaws, Obama’s got it under control he can print more money.

  • Mark

    From my understanding 1966 there is a good chance they will finish counting today but an automatic recount might be enacted because the results so close

    Ron Paul: Election shows U.S. ‘far gone’

    Rep. Ron Paul, whose maverick presidential bids shook the GOP, said in the wake of this week’s elections that the country has already veered over the fiscal cliff and he sees no chance of righting ship in a country where too many people are dependent on government.

    “We’re so far gone. We’re over the cliff,” the Texas Republican told Bloomberg Television’s “In the Loop” program. “We cannot get enough people in Congress in the next 5-10 years who will do wise things.” The video can be seen at

    Mr. Paul, who is retiring after 12 terms in the House, said voters on Tuesday rejected Mitt Romney because he had opposed the government bailout of General Motors and Chrysler.

    “The people in the Midwest voted against him: ‘Oh, we have to be taken care of!’ So that vote was sort of like what we are laughing at in Greece,” Mr. Paul said.

    “People do not want anything cut,” he said. “They want all the bailouts to come. They want the Fed to keep printing money. They do not believe we have gone off the cliff or are close to going off the cliff. They think we can patch it over, that we can somehow come up with a magic solution.”

    He added, “You cannot have a budgetary solution if you do not change what the role of government should be. As long as you think we have to please the world and run this welfare state, all we will argue about is who will get the loot.”

    Sure. Incidentally, of the top 20 states by per capita food stamp participation, 14 of 20 were won by Romney. Of the 20 states with the lowest per capita levels of food stamp participation, 13 were won by Obama. For Obama to reach a majority required a significant amount of voters from the work force, especially since retirement age voters (65+) break Republican.

    Perhaps the GOP should have nominated the old guy instead of the Etch-a-sketch candidate they did :-)

    One last thing before I head out – the idea of voters being ‘largely emotional’ seems to have been refuted by the lack of influence the SuperPACs had. What do most analysts agree was most important? The ground game, of course.

    The reason for this disconnect seems almost obvious in retrospect. A good 80 – 90% of the people that bother to turn out tend to vote the party line. Most people here knew exactly which candidate they WOULDN’T vote for the second the primaries ended – the only question was whether or not people would bother to vote at all, whether they’d vote third party in protest, or whether they’d hold their nose and vote for the major party candidate who is closest to their values.

    Despite the media myth of the ‘swing voter,’ there are very few people who see a television ad, or even dozens of ads a day, and say to themselves “Well, that clinches it! I’m sold on Barack Obama!” Values are just a wee bit more cemented in than that.

    Ditto for the idea that the media is all powerful. The media is reactive, not proactive. If the media wrote the story, then 2008 would have been a Clinton vs Giuliani election. Barack Obama was not the story in 2008 until Iowa – when his insanely good ground game surprised everyone by defeating the Clinton machine.

    Most analysts, especially Republican strategists, acknowledge that the turn-out game is what decided this election as well. Team O spent a bunch of money on GotV and registration infrastructure. This was apparent to me at the open air market I go to every Saturday – for most of the election, Democratic voter registration booths were there, registering a largely under 30 crowd, and specifically pushing hard for everyone to register as a mail-in voter.

    The advantage of this is obvious in retrospect: A lot of those same under 30 voters would have been hard to turn out and sit in a line on election day, while mail-in made Team O’s job a lot easier. It’s no coincidence that they had upwards of 50% of their likely voters already having cast their ballots by the time election day rolled around, which is a big logistical triumph.

    The brains in the GOP are looking at this, a winnable election that they lost, and calculating how they’re going to develop a better ground game, and how they retool the message so that it’s not so unappealing to a majority of the country. The not-so-brainy wing is jabbering about conspiracies, traitors, the end of America, and how half of the country (AKA the people they need to win elections) are lazy parasites.

    We’ll see which wing wins out in 2014 and 2016.

    I do not support Ron because he is tooooo extreme in many things but I dont disagree with Romney as the choice being the wrong one. I do however agree with the statements that Ron made in the post. People voted for “stuff” and Romney did have any “stuff” and that plays right into the demographics issue and why we have turned the corner heading for more “stuff” but the “stuff” will only last as long as the money and one day soon Obama will have to shut down the presses!

  • Ratboy

    Matthew, I said that Tuesday night and yesterday morning without reading anything or anyone! The D’s had a GREAT ground game and reacted to the weakness shown in the polls and beat the pants off the R’s! BUT it may be too late for the R’s and us as a country to turn it back around without a crash or disaster because the entitlement group just grew bigger and will continue to get used to the freebies and it will be harder to defeat what is coming close to a majority.

    Seems like the terms “stuff” and “takers” are the 2 new talking points on Fox and the right wing bubble to explain why the Republicans lost

    Until the Republicans realize their is people such as myself who don’t want or expect “stuff” and aren’t “takers” who just see the Republican policies ridiculous on a whole on many issues, they will continue losing Presidential and Senate elections

    ^What Mark said^ :-)

  • Sicilian Papa

    Mark makes the point that some votes have not been counted. Fine that will raise O.’s number about 4-5 million. And Romney may match McCains total. I thought 99% of votes would be counted by now. When I went to the totals they didn’t mention that many votes being out.

    Romney may match McCain’s total? What we need is more moderates!

  • Mark

    @Papa

    It depends where the votes are coming from which I have no clue(ie for all i know their could be alot of votes coming in from republican leaning districts). Let’s say we go with my low estimate of 7M more votes coming in I would expect it at most to be 60-40 split how they go to either guy, given that expect Romney and Obama’s numbers to go up anywhere from 2.8M-4.2M votes each

  • Mark

    Even if I over estimate how many of the votes will go Romney and he only gets 2M more votes, he will beat McCain. The talking point you are using that Romney got less votes then McCain to me sounds like Rush Limbaugh trying to come up with excuses why Romney lost(ie he isn’t conservative enough), basically wait till all the votes are counted(which might be a month by time they count absentee ballots) to make tat judgment
