    There are 229 million people of voting age in the U.S. 59 million voted for Obama, 57 million voted for Romney. So, in the simplest terms that means only 26% of Americans believed in Obama enough to vote for him. And that 25% of Americans disbelieved in Obama enough to vote against him. That’s only a 1% win far from the overwhelming support Obama and the lib press are pushing.

  • RedBarSoup

    What is the % of Americans that believed in Romney and the % of Americans that disbelieved in Romney….? I’m going to go with….less…..?

  • Stefwhit

    It’s one thing to use exit polls to decern why one person voted the way the did and quite another to take raw numbers and assign your own erroneous meaning to it…very amateurish Cathy- but nice try.

  • Doug

    MSNBC extends its winning streak to 5 days over Fox News.

  • Raz

    Doug old thing, not much of a victory. They always do well on weekends. Proof of the pudding comes in the new week. Pitty it always takes sex and drugs to get people to watch.

  • Doug

    The real victory, Raz, is that MSNBC beat out FNC on the three nights after the election. Did not happen in 2008.

  • b


    Keep up the good work staying-up late nights with your calculator. Meanwhile, no company in the Country would be pay 1% more to place an ad on MSNBC than its current price of around 50% cheaper than it is to place that same ad on FOX…

    …anyway, I have to make sure that I get that payment out to FOX before the Close…

    @Cathy “There are 229 million people of voting age in the U.S. 59 million voted for Obama, 57 million voted for Romney.”

    59 million??? Obama has over 62 Million votes as of yesterday and will most likely end up with 65 Million votes once the rest of the votes are counted. There are over 3 Million votes in California alone that still need to be counted. 45% of the Washington State vote still need to be counted.

  • joe

    @Cathy 59 million for Obama is dead wrong. He’s nearly at 63 million and moving upward. and Msnbc is kicking ass

  • Debsafan

    Makes no difference how many Americans was fool by Obama. We are all going to have to pay for it. You don’t know it now but in a few month are a year you will find out how wrong you were about this man.

  • cathy

    I see many people don’t like math or the facts. As Obama’s numbers go up so do the numbers for the others. New number are 63 million for Obama and 61 million for others. With 229 million people able to vote, you have to look at them too. I think it’s safe to say these people didn’t feel strong enough for anyone running to go vote. And even if you discount the non-voters, Obama is only at 50.5% of the popular vote.
    So, please explain how this is overwhelming support or a mandate?
    I believe the closest any president in recent times have gotten to overwhelming support was in 1984 with Reagan. He got 58.8% of the popular vote and I still wouldn’t call that overwhelming.

    The Lib press and the dems always want to claim mandates and overwhelming support. They did it both times Clinton was elected. But Clinton only got 43% of the vote in 1996 and 49% in 2000.
