The 2012 Election is over, but Republicans are still trying to analyze why their candidate did not win. Mitt Romney and the entire Republican Party were confident he would have a landslide win. Instead, he lost in some districts without even a single vote. There have been reports that 59 of Philadelphia’s voting districts came up with results that showed the GOP candidate Mitt Romney received not a single vote.

  1. This sounds impossible. Surely someone must have been impaired or confused enough to check the wrong box?

  2. That depends almost entirely upon the size of the district and the people who reside in that particular district. By district, I’m sure they don’t mean congressional district but rather voting district. If the statistic of 95% of the black vote nationwide went for Obama is accurate, then a mostly, if not entirely, black district might actually have had no votes for Romney, especially one that is relatively small in size.

  3. Gee, maybe someone rigged the Diebold voting machines? Or maybe the votes were altered on someone’s personal laptop?

  4. It is not the first time it happened. In in 2008, John McCain didn’t get a single vote in 57 precincts. Also of note, in Phili, there are 1,687 wards and 59 is only 3.5% of the total. The districts(wards) in which this happened are nearly 100% black. “Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia who has studied African American precincts, said he had occasionally seen 100 percent of the vote go for the Democratic candidate. Chicago and Atlanta each had precincts that registered no votes for Republican Sen. John McCain in 2008.” Source: http://articles.philly.com/2012-11-13/news/35069785_1_romney-supporters-mitt-romney-voter-id-law.

    But of course – Pennsylvania needs a strong voter ID law to keep these fools from voting or the very least harassing them with long delays and lines like in Florida – right? (wrong)
