I'm wondering why people voted for Romney?
Romney called people deadbeats who don't pay taxes and always want handouts.

Southerners voted for Romney b/c they felt he would be a better President than Obama.

I can attest to the fact that at least one Southerner voted for Obama.

Im native of this state and I voted for Obama.

People voted for Romney for the same reason that people voted for Obama! They liked Romneys politics and message more than Obama's message and politics. It's not hard to understand.

Romney supporters are probably wondering the same thing about Obama supporters.

Why do you think I voted for Gary Johnson!

So I guess Mecklenburg county isn't "Southern" anymore. Note to the OP. You are posting this in a county that voted for Obama nearly 2-1. In other words, 100,000 more folks voted for Obama in Meck than Romney (the highest numerical difference within the state of NC by far, in favor of Obama). Why not post this on the more conservative NC forum?
