Romney Got ZERO Votes in 59 Philadelphia Voting Divisions! Zero!

How can this possibly be?

Quote:According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Mitt Romney on Tuesday received ZERO votes in 59 Philadelphia voting divisions! ZERO!

It'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. [...]

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

As you might imagine, this is impossible.

But don't try to tell liberal media members that voter fraud is real.

Yeah. I dunno. Not much we can do about it at this point. It is what it is. The sheeple have allowed things like this to take deep root in our country and now its going to be near to impossible to pull it all out.

There were also several districts in the Cleveland, Ohio area where Obama received 100% of the votes. That's a greater percentage than Saddam Hussein expected to receive.

This wasn't a random sample. They specifically went in after the fact looking for "voting divisions" that had no Romney votes.

Also, note the terminology of "voting division".

Voting divisions roll up into wards, wards roll up into districts. There are 66 wards and between 10 and 50 voting divisions per ward. There are literally a couple of thousand voting divisions in Philly. Also note that 19605/59 = an average of 332 voters per voting district. That's barely more than a street in an inner city. When you say 59 streets had no Romney votes it has a lot less impact.

Kudos, you left out the most important part of the article:

Quote: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."

...

Many parts of Philadelphia and other big cities simply lack Republican voters, a fact of campaigning that has been true since Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal, Stanford University's Rodden said.

In 2008, McCain got zero votes in 57 Philadelphia voting divisions. That was a big increase from 2004, when George W. Bush was blanked in just five divisions.

Voting DIVISIONS not districts, not wards, for goodness sake. It's also absurdly annoying when you post your own commentary in the quote box as if it were a part of the quoted text.

So, is it really a surprise that Romney performed similarly to McCain among that segment of voters? No, no it is not.

Tell me how many confirmed cases of in-person voter fraud there are again? Oh, that's right, a number so insignificantly small that in-person voting fraud hasn't turned the tide of any election in Pennsylvania.

It's like you keep looking for reasons Romney lost except that you don't want any of those reasons to actually be about Romney.

Yes, whining that Romney didn't win because of all these conspiracy theories is quite productive to winning in 2016.

By the way, Romney hates guns:

So you kinda should be thankful you have the enemy you know rather than the more evil enemy you don't.

No. 5 blocks of 100% Obama supporters (those that have even bothered to register) in the poorest parts of Philadelphia sounds completely normal to me.
