A voting precinct does not equal an entire city. Most precincts are actually quite small.

This is just another case of Fox News and the right wing noise machine crying wolf. Kinda like when President Obama gave Michelle a "terrorist fist bump".

So how do you know who lives in those 59 Philadelphia precincts? Are they all Black? What's your source of information?

The 59 precincts are overwhelmingly (1) African-American and (2) Democratic. 59 divisions out of a total of 1.687 = 3.5%.

Read all 3 pages of the following article...it will help you to understand the situation in Philly:

In 59 Philadelphia voting divisions, Mitt Romney got zero votes - Philly.com

Funny.... Faux news even knows better than to touch this one. Wait, this will probably be the next big scandal to backfire after Libya.

I live in the real world and take the time to read sources. Try it. The Philly papers have covered it well.

The voting machine companies are republican-owned, the programming a secret, so there is no reason your boy should have lost.

And in one Texas County - an entire COUNTY - Obama received only 5 votes. And Dems outnumber Repubs in registration there.
Conspiracy there, too?
Voter fraud?
Corruption?

When I was a Precinct leader in a precinct in Philly, the precinct consisted almost entirely of just 2 apartment buildings. Very homogeneous residents in those buildings. Precincts are Small & often comprised primarily of people of the same political persuasion.
It happens.
