Where’s the Beef? No Media Outrage Over Mitt Romney Getting Shut Out in 59 Philadelphia Precincts

photo credit: kiskeacityIt’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote. Zero. Zilch.

These are the kind of numbers that send Republicans into paroxysms of voter-fraud angst, but such results may not be so startling after all.

“We have always had these dense urban corridors that are extremely Democratic,” said Jonathan Rodden, a political science professor at Stanford University. “It’s kind of an urban fact, and you are looking at the extreme end of it in Philadelphia.”


Most big cities are politically homogeneous, with 75 percent to 80 percent of voters identifying as Democrats.

[But] was there not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0?

    You can bet that if it had been BO who was shut out the press would have been all over it crying foul. The press disgusts me!!! I blame them for not getting the facts from both sides out there so the populous can make educated choices. I smells like the USSR’s Tass press all over again.

    Waiting to see someone step up for a recount or revote; there is still time.
    Where is Romney and his backers; they should be outraged. I am. Tired of the tyranny; we need real justice!

      Kind of hard to get a recount with electronic voting machines. Allen West tried to get the machines impounded so a recount could be made and a liberal judge refused. Also there has been testimony before Congress that there “IS” a program that can switch votes for a specific candidate and when it is done properly, the program erasses itself after the fact. Paper ballots anyone?

    Fraud….they fixed the machines to default Obama….that is what I’ve read.

    Not surprisingly, this is just a small piece of the acerage that is referred to as the “Democrat Plantation”. Same identical pattern in Ohio. When every union in the nation and the media are backing the candidate, how can he possibly lose, and why are you suggesting voter fraud? They’re simply following marching orders.

    Lets be realistic. No matter how much fraud is uncovered, few media outlets will report on it, or if they do it will be to mock & disparage any who question the results. Fraud is rampant & that is exactly why so many object to voter ID. Fact is, in states where ID is the law, minority registration is up! Its not about ‘suppression”, its about the ability to stuff the ballot box to obtain the results those counting the votes want. No one is asking why nearly 80% of the military vote never got there in time to be officially counted. Ballots went out far too late to get back in time. Numerous states failed to get them out. A few would show incompetence. 10, 15, 20 or more shows a concentrated effort to make sure the ballots never get counted, nor be reported to the public. Such reports might cause a trend to develop that some do not want to happen or be reported, until they have their lock on the election.
    59 precincts. Nothing to see here folks, just move-on (sic) [pun intended]!

    Let’s eee, the media won’t report on it, the (anti)Justice Department won’t act on it. What’s left? I’ll let the rest of you fill in the blanks.

    As someone who thinks that Mr. Obama was a better option than was Mr. Romney in this race, I have to say that in Philadelphia County where it went Romney 14.1%, Obama 85.2%, it’s hard to believe that even one voting division in the county, let alone 59 of them (!), would receive zero votes for the Republican candidate. If the author’s statement, “[….there was] not one contrarian voter in those 59 divisions, where unofficial vote tallies have President Obama outscoring Romney by a combined 19,605 to 0,” turns out to be true, there really is an issue here worth looking into. The statistical likelihood for such an outcome is incredibly slim, even in a community where there is broad consensus that one candidate is preferable to another. It would mean that not even a single person out of almost 20,000 people in 59 districts, even if they all intended to vote for Obama, made a human error and voted to Romney’s benefit.

    For me, the take away is that, at least for federal elections, there needs to be a bi-partisan or multi-partisan overhaul of the way that elections are managed.

    Massive voter fraud in all swing states. No doubt about that. Try to explain voter turn outs above 140% in Florida and as high as 158% in some precincts in PA. This is not possible without serious fraud. The usurper stole yet another election and nothing is being done about it.

  • The latest vote in Afghanastan was more honest than that of the USA in 2012. Electronic voting put in place by Hanging-chad Gore was the perfect set-up for the Dems to revenge the 2010 ‘shelacking.’ Now that our votes no longer count Americans have some tough choices to make.

  • Romney won in most states that had voter I.D

  • THIS IS NOT POSSIBLE. HOW I WORRY ABOUT MILITARY BALLOTS.

    Find out where the left wing media is getting its finances and cut them off at the source! Deny payment to their sponsors and the cunts will starve!

    We should be marching on washington D.C. and demand a revote! With new rules no fakle people, no Dead people, no foreigners! Enforce Voter ID and prove they do help stop election fraud!!!! The problem is that no one ever expresses outrage over the loss of one of the most basic right and that is the right to vote! If you don’t demand a presidential revote then YOU KNOW it WILL happen again unless there are LAWS to STOP The FRAUD! Minorities be damned to HELL, as they are all athiests and muslim wife murdering scum anyway! If any so-called Christians support the fraud try to claim Obama’s supporters as their own then they aren’t REAL Christians… They are Satan’s followers that are trying to fool you! Obama is the most anti-christian evil jack-ass in the universe! HIS FOLLOWERS ARE STATIST, ATHIEST MOOCH-BUMs… I.E. they are Brain-dead zombies who need to be dowsed in holy-water, and set on fire to be BURRNED!
    A person who can’t express how they really feel is a LIAR!!! Remember THAT! P.S. TRUE Christians don’t pretend who they are at the polls either!
    So you can tell them that the Holy Spirit DOES NOT and WILL NOT condone voter fraud or ID theft!
