I hope a few voters come forward to say that they voted for Romney. It won't change anything at this point, but might show a few folks just how corrupt this administration is.

A whole lot more than Romney did in those inner cities.
As someone who's lived in several small towns and rural areas in the middle, I can assure you their votes aren't nearly as stubbornly monolithic as the bubbled cities.

Lol, funny how that isn't happening. Maybe becuz that is how the votes tallied up... How many precincts are there in Philly? Is this 59 like 1% or 2% of the total?

In 2008, McCain got zero votes in 57 Philadelphia voting divisions... Obama over performed in 2012.

You people are so misinformed it's quite funny. They wouldn't let the GOP poll watchers in, even after a judge said they were to be there, and then they locked the doors when they counted the ballots. How about those 2 for starters?

when a single candidate gets all the votes in a metropolitan city, then he is getting a vote count better than a 3rd world dictator is in their own country where they are the only one running.

They said he got 100% of the vote in specific Philly precincts, not in the whole metropolitan city (area).
