Many millions of people are still scratching their heads over how Obama won the 2012 presidential election in the face of so many contrary polls. To those who credit his victory to simple witchcraft there are many who would agree. But it may have been much simpler than voodoo and witchcraft; it appears to be just a case of numbers.
And yes, I am counting those numbers where the polls show more recorded votes for Obama than there were total registered voters, which I gather are “still being investigated.” But the numbers I’m talking about are those such as the ones shown by FoxNews.com online as reported by the Associated Press (huge friends of Obama) where they showed in an article titled, “In a first, black voters turnout rate passes whites”.
That is a little more significant than just a “first”; it is an overwhelming feat based on nothing more than skin color and it, as AP states, “surpassed the white turnout for the first time, reflecting a deeply polarized presidential election in which blacks strongly supported Barack Obama while many whites stayed home.”
But how is that possible given the realistic breakdown of simple population numbers which as reported by Wikipedia, “Whites constitute a majority with 72.4% of the population in the 2010 United States Census, while blacks make up 12 percent of the share of eligible voters, they represented 13 percent of the total 2012 votes cast, according to exit polling.”
Huh? Maybe there was some witchcraft when they got 13 percent of the total 2012 votes cast but they are only 12 percent of the eligible voters. That could be how they can get more votes than there are registered voters. But I keep hearing Democrats say that those things are all Republican lies. Gee, even when AP and Wikipedia say them?
These numbers games that are played by people who live in the political arena 24-7-365 sure can spin and twist a tale or two with a straight face, but the Clintons have been caught with their noses growing even as they spoke, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman – Miss Lewinsky.” Or Hillary re the Benghazi arms statement, “What difference does it make?” Oh, only some dead American bodies, Hillary. The Clintons are great role models and teachers for all Democrats.
The numbers game being played by Democrats reflects one very important item in the elections game—total votes. The process of buying votes has been one of Obama’s strongest activities since he took over remodeling our government from a Constitutionally strong world center of manufacturing and invention to one of sky-high loss of jobs and long lines for unemployment checks. But even there Obama has found the secret to getting more votes in this jobless atmosphere—food stamps, not at campaign expense but at taxpayer expense.
Some of this Obama learned from George Bush who, stated that “Participation in the U.S. food-stamp program grew from approximately 17.1 million people in 2000 to approximately 23 million in 2004,” a jump of six million in Bush’s first 4 years.
