Democrats Are Doomed In 2012

Look at the graphic - even if 100% of Democrats turn out for Obama, how will they beat the Republican numbers?

Lordy do I hate the "we are going to win/lose" talk a year out from an election. These "projections" have so often been wrong that I find the discussion a waste of time. SOOOOOOO many things can happen in a year to change things, ya know?

Those numbers make perfect sense. Must be using the ACORN voter registration data.

That gag doesn't make any sense, you know.

Because there weren't any instances where there were more votes than voters.


Meanwhile, a Ramsey County precinct ended up with 177 more ballots than there were recorded votes on Election Night. In that case, the board decided to go with the extra ballots, rather than the Election Night total, even though the county is now showing more ballots than voters in the precinct. This gave Mr. Franken a net gain of 37 votes, which means he's benefited both ways from the board's inconsistency.

Hence, it's easy to see how the totals can add up to more than 100%.

See, if you have to explain the joke...

Danielk said...

I get that but the gag doesn't make sense because nobody thinks ACORN inflated Republican numbers.

Wamk said...

Right, because everyone knows that ACORN only stuffs the ballot boxes for Democrats.

I was being snarky. Clearly loses something when it's typed, and not spoken.

Danielk said...

OOooooooh, no wonder I was thrown off. You believe that the media, science, twitter and football all have a liberal bias.

But you think ACORN doesn't!

See, that throws the gag in a whole different light, but you can see how I'd make the error.

Danielk said...

Oh, and I forgot, the internet.

Where's Peggy? said...

The 4 corners of America have now been found to be corrupt:

Media. No shit.

Academia. No shit, part 2.

Science. No shit, part 3.

Government. No shit, part 4.

What do we have left to hope for? Certainly not BO's stinkin' administration to help us.

I wonder where that black lady, Peggy Johnson, is now, who, on election night claimed this:

Danielk said...

You make a good point about Ms. Johnson being black... I'd forgotten how easily them people is bamboozled! She just didn't realize that Obama is half-white!
