[quote:Anonymous Coward 27253156:MV8yMDQ0MjkzXzM0MzQ5NjEwX0YxRTYxMjhD] I would like everyone to refer to the chart that references the past TWENTY Presidential elections. [b]You will see that the absolute LOSS of one single demographic of the population amounting to 16 million, WHICH IS A LOSS OF 16% OF THE WHITE VOTING POPULATION, is simply NOT POSSIBLE.[/b] It is nice to be able to come up with some simpy-dimpy little explanation in your own mind, BUT THAT IS NOT HOW THE WORLD ACTUALLY WORKS. It is a known fact that a certain percent of the population votes or almost always votes, and a certain percent does not vote. When you are dealing with large numbers, in the millions, the trends become very much predictable and ingrained from one election to the next. When campaigning, when polling, etc., the party machine pretty much can predict how the election is going to go before it happens, WITHIN about 3 percent margin of error. :gonzo2:There are really not any BIG surprises. The loss of 16% of the white voting population WOULD NOT HAPPEN. PERIOD. IT WOULD NOT HAPPEN. [b]BUT TO HAVE IT HAPPEN AND THEN BE COMPLETELY IGNORED BY EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE REPUBLICAN PARTY ITSELF IS JUST BEYOND THE TWILIGHT ZONE.[/b] :gonzo2: [/quote]
It is being widely reported that there were 117 million votes cast: 60 million Obama and 57+ million for Romney.
This is down 13 million from 2008 total of 131.4 million.
In 2008 it is recorded that 100 million whites cast a vote representing 74% of the total and the minority share of the vote was 26%.
Now they are reporting out of a total of 117 million votes, whites cast 72% and minorities cast 28%.
That means that only 84 million whites voted in 2012 down 16 million from the 100 million whites who voted in 2008.
Extrapolating from that, we have to say that 3 million more minorities voted in 2012 than in 2008.
In 2010 the resident population of voting age (including aliens of voting age) was 234,564,000.
This was an increase in resident population of almost 5 million from the 2008 figure.
Yet we are expected to believe that there was a net loss of votes of 13 million representing
16 million fewer white voters and an additional 3 million minority voters.
I mean, this is just NOT BELIEVABLE
I refer you to a chart of all the Presidential elections from 1932 -2010. [
link to www.census.gov
As you can see, as the population increases, the number of voters increases in every election cycle except when Clinton ran for re-election against Dole. Not a hotly contested election. Kind of a walk away for Clinton. And, even with this....the drop in voters is not near 13 million, and 16 million whites.
This turn out and loss of 16 million whites in a hotly contested election such as this one is absolutely NOT believable.
What is really going on?
