Data Points To A Powerful Romney
Campaign – And Yet…He Lost.

Ulsterman Report, by Ulsterman

Original Article

Posted By:LOL Thomas, 11/7/2012 7:48:54 PM

Received this link from Insider this afternoon and told to look it over carefully.  They remain completely confounded as to how the reported #s and final results appear to directly conflict with data such as appears in this link. (Snip) Mitt Romney earned MORE votes among liberals, moderates, and conservatives than were cast for the Republican candidate in 2008 – in fact, this improvement was by a full 7% over 2008 – a very significant improvement.  Mitt Romney earned more votes from Protestants, Catholics, and Jews than the Republican nominee received in 2008, including a 9-point improvement among Jewish voters

Comments:
When you read the rest of the data, you’ll also see that a number of blacks shifted from Obama in 2008 to Romney in 2012. The enigma deepens . . .

Golly folks, do you suppose there was some voter fraud the dems are so famous for?

I feel like they figured out how to steal votes, whether it was through manipulation of the machines, the EV, or however, that's my belief.

I truly despise what happened. I really don't believe what happened.

Libtards spent the last 4 years generating voter registrations they could use for ballot box stuffing, When you have billions and there is no downside you can produce a lot of votes, without having to get the voters to come out and support you..
When such traitors start getting taken outside to the back of the courthouse by a sheriffs' deputy who then puts a round through their head (after a fair trial, of course) you'll see such behavior drop off.

No.....they just turned out more voters looking for their ObamaPhone.

These are exit POLLS, not real data. They have a margin of error and are impossible to validate. You will never win in a court of law with polls.

This is truly a cliche about elections, being crooked, but, I just could not believe that Romney all of a sudden was losing NC, Florida, Virginia (where he has been ahead all night). It seemed that Rasmuusen and Gallup, the two most respected pollsters, got it wrong and every other poll had it right. I still believe they knew how to puts votes in machines or something... the Dems created I believe.

I said it last night. There needs to be an independent investigation. It may not help after Romney's concession, but it will help to delegitimize the Won. There is no way he could have won this election without stealing it.

Keep praying hard for a miracle. If God doesn't intervene for us, we'll never recover from this.

A physician friend who votes at the same place I do told me today that when he started the voting process yesterday, the ballot was marked for Obama. He couldn't erase or reverse it, and finally had to ask the guy in charge of the poling place to erase the obama vote. How many of us would make the effort? This is surreal.

We know the dems cheat. That is in their DNA.

But it is actually more frightening to think that there are really that many welfare takers and uninformed (or in favor of abortion, illegals, higher costs & taxes) folks that could vote for the idiot boy.

Back in my kid advertising account exec days, when I had to keep spreadsheets with pencil and green paper, my smart account supervisor told me to always eyeball the calculations, no matter how carefully made, for something called logic. The split nature of the results and the way they were reported don't meet the eyeball test. I do wish Romney had pressed for recounts, although I think their fatal error of the campaign was the loss of momentum experienced with Hurricane Sandy.

I keep thinking--what if Romney had bought national TV (net and cable) time late last week, to deliver a final message of change and recovery--and as part of it places where aid could be donated. What if the Romney people had forestalled Christie's big hug with Obama by flying Romney or Ryan into NJ--or making it very clear that if Christie invited Obama in that he may as well leave the Republican party. (Look for Christie to go 'independent' or Democrat in 2013, if he doesn't wind up in Washington.)

But what can you do when God gives you one final test, one more challenge and we fail it?

You can't look at the exit polls, they just tell you about the people that voted. 2 million McCain supporters didn't vote this time. Just like in 06, Evangelicals stayed home. Think back to all of the Mormon hatred that use to exist here at L.com those people didn't change their hearts, they just stayed home.

#16 is right. Romney got 2.5 million fewer votes than McCain. Someone stayed home and I suspect it was Evangelicals who let anti-Mormon bigotry get the best of them. I hope I'm wrong, but I cannot for the life of me imagine anyone voting for McCain, yet staying home this time. If there's another explanation, I'd like to hear it.

Now 0bama got 9 million fewer votes than he did in '08. That I expected. But the GOP drop off totally defies all logic.

The Muslims declared war on America decades ago and it took us until 9/11/01 to realize that we were at war. The progressives are at war with us and I still don't think we have realized it yet. When the republicans realize we're at war, maybe something will improve on our side. This is a cold war, a cold civil war.

Evangelicals (I am one) did not stay home, especially after the Billy Graham ad hit. As for Romney getting fewer votes than McCain in 2008, get real. 2008 was when conservatives stayed home. It doesn't add up.

It was rigged. They have been planning it for a long time. I believe the Republicans were involved. My first red flag was no campaigning. Just enough to keep the cover. I kept asking this over and over. Why not? You don't have to watch Fox or the others to know this. Republicans came on with Democrats to keep us distracted while possibly Sec of States were busy setting up the fraud. They keep knocking off conservatives one by one. Why wasn't Ted Cruz who swears he is a conservative knocked off? Simple, he isn't. Obama has never run anything but an illegal election. Obama is the perfect idiot just like Hitler to be the front for this. He intentionally has not let us know who he is to mainly keep us distracted. Yes, he should be investigated. The entire thing is a crock and no it's not the voters fault both sides. It is the fault of the government, bankers, businessmen and one world government. They can't take over unless they destroy America. I can now see why their was little campaigning. The fix was in.

I'm about as weary of hearing the Mormon card played as I am with the race card. Of course there were Conservatives who sat this one out - the anger after the McLame campaign led many (and we knew them here) to say that they would never be used again as pawns for the RNC. I agree that fraud could be a factor (perhaps even THE factor), but any loss of Conservative voters was a message to the RNC as much as it was a repudiation of a weakly conservative candidate.

I do hope some legal group investigates these results - especially the loss of military ballots in a suspicious plane crash.

#22 is onto something. The Republican candidates in Missouri did absolutely no campaigning. Akin was the only Republican heard of and that was negative from both sides. Romney won the state but many of the other races went Democrat which doesn't make much sense either. The results just look really odd to me.

I think the DNC machine looked at all the missing names in the registers they could find (in the key states), then plugged in "all Dem party" ballots with those names that didn't show this time. They could still be filling in fake signatures right now as we type.

re #17 -- I have another explanation. He is considered by the Righteous Right to be a flip-flopper, a RINO, &/or a moderate. They voted for McCain last time holding their nose, & were bitterly disappointed. They are mad at the GOP for continuing to give us candidates too close to a Dem, so this time they stayed home to teach them a lesson.

There may be a small percentage that wouldn't vote for a Mormon, but there is an even more complex reason for that. It has to do with having a "gut", and critical thinking abilities, which some believe is drummed-out of young Mormon men. I voted for him this time & in the last election, but I've heard discussions about that.

Was it Karl Marx who said "It doesn't matter who votes, it only matters who counts the votes". As I understand, a lot of the voting machine companies are owned by George Soros. Would he have any interest in having Obama win?

I think there was massive voter fraud. I think there was at least some of each type of fraud mentioned in this topic.

I agree with #20. I am a Christian and didn't want Romney to get the nominee as I am not a fan of Mormons having lived among them all my life, but I didn't want Obama in again so I voted as did many of my friends. We are not responsible for his loss. I'd like to know why he was string in the first debate, semi-strong in the second and totally a rollover in the third? I would have thought too with all the Mormons in those swing states, he would have had a good ground game just from his church. And speaking of Mormons, how did Love lose in UT, a solidly Mormon state?

In Houston, a woman that used to live at one of our properties told us why she voted a straight democrat ticket, when she was a Romney supporter. The bus driver that picked up everyone at the nursing home to go vote, told them the Republicans planned on killing the Medicare they all received for their medical problems and they all would be kicked out on the street if the republicans won, so they needed to vote straight democrat to save the money they are all getting.

She was very upset when she was talking to our employees, especially after we told her the bus driver was lying to them.

There was massive voter fraud, no doubt. We have been sold out, no doubt. But it saddens me even more that people are starting to blame the Christians. I was thinking earlier this morning that the RINO's and others would do this.

Nothing happens on earth that God does not allow. I prayed hard that he would intervene and that the fraud would be rendered useless. That did not happen. I fear that God's judgement is finally being unleashed on America. For how many years can a nation slaughter innocent babies, to mention just one sinister aspect of decline, and not pay a price?

In 2008, O got over 69 million votes, McCain got almost 60 million votes. Romney received 58 million.

I cannot comprehend how over 2 million McCain voters stayed at home and how we did not receive at least 65 million votes for Romney with the economy as bad as it is.

I'm having a tough time getting accurate reporting for the actual vote count.

69 million votes in 2008 and 9 million less this time for obama leaves 60 million for obama. McCain got 60 million in 2008 and Romney got the 58 million, then it's just a short hop to throw in a couple extra million to get obama across the line.

Voter machines by the hundreds we know of switched votes. Add a few trunks full of phony early ballots and the fix is in. It took only a million switches and ballots and you get the 2 million advantage. There have been more than that identified by my count in the last election. The demns sharpened their tools for this election.

I can see no way this election went the way it did.

Don't blame the evangelicals, huge churches were on a 40 days of fasting and prayer and had huge rallies for Romney. What about Ron Paul supporters, would they make up the difference? Somehow, I can't believe they would be receptive to voting for Romney, when they were so bitter at the end. So, Ron Paulers out there, are you the ones that showed us who is boss?? If not, there was voter fraud, it does not feel right and the Chicago mafia was busy, busy in this election.

Where is #22 from? Why the suspicions about Ted Cruz? The answer is that he was elected from Texas and Texas is not Ohio, Michigan, or Wisconsin. We are not full of unionized thugs who run our elections. We do have some problems in our border counties and in Shiela Jackson Lee's district, but for the most of the state, it is still mostly sane.

We are expecting more "revenge" and "punish our enemies" coming from Washington, Obama, and Valerie Jarrett.

One more thing, if voter fraud is the answer, then it is a bridge too far to blame Repubs, this was straight from George Soros and the Chicago Mafia. With all the time and money, they figured out the game plan to steal the election like their socialist playbook reveals. How is it proved? That's the problem.

Egypt´s electoral commission said Sunday the presidential election will take place on May 26 and 27, 10 months after the army overthrew Islamist leader Mohammed Morsi. The man who toppled him, now retired army chief Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is expected to win the vote easily as he rides a wave of popularity for removing the divisive president in July.

CAIRO - Three Hamas militants who infiltrated into Sinai from Gaza were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to assassinate former Egyptian defense minister Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who is running for president, according to Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai. The three carried a coded letter with instructions to execute the assassination, passed by a senior Muslim Brotherhood official who escaped to Gaza. (Snip) The officials warned of a troubling development taking place among the al-Qaeda-linked organizations already inside Egypt.

Egyptian army chief Field Marshal Abdel Fattah al-Sisi has recently intensified contact with the Russian Defense Ministry in order to expedite the completion of an arms deal. According to senior Egyptian sources that the Kuwaiti newspaper Al-Rai quoted in a report on Wednesday, the deal with Russia includes advanced aircraft, monitoring equipment and other sophisticated weapons that would be used to fight terrorism emanating from Sinai.

An Egyptian court on Sunday set Sunday for the resumption of the trial of ousted president Mohamed Morsi and 14 co-defendants for allegedly inciting the murder of demonstrators outside Cairo´s Ittihadiya presidential palace in late 2012, a judicial source said Tuesday. According to the source, the decision came one day after the same court turned down a request for the recusal of the presiding judges in the case.

This morning, Lois Lerner again pleaded the Fifth, refusing to answer any of Chairman Darrell Issa’s questions.  After a few minutes of Lerner’s repetitive non-response, Issa adjourned the hearing, so we don’t know if the committee planned to address this particular issue.

Cairo - An Egyptian court will begin hearing testimonies in the murder trial of deposed Islamist president Mohamed Morsi from Wednesday, when a former top military officer will give evidence. [Snip] Morsi was present in the court, inside a soundproof glass dock to prevent him from interrupting proceedings with defiant outbursts, as he had done in previous hearings. Morsi and 14 co-defendants, including former aides, are accused of inciting the killing of opposition activists outside the presidential palace in December 2012, an incident that hastened his overthrow by the military almost seven months later.

Morsy ouster brings $8 billion

Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE), apparently pleased with the ouster of the former President Mohamed Morsy, have approved $8 billion in aid to Egypt on Tuesday. The Saudi funds comprise a $2 billion central bank deposit, $2 billion in energy products, and $1 billion in cash, the Saudi Finance Minister Ibrahim Alassaf told Reuters. (Snip) The rise of Mohamed Morsy´s Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt since 2011 has unsettled most Gulf Arab states, including the UAE, which feared it would embolden Islamists at home. Morsy became president a year ago in Egypt´s first freely contested election.

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
