Romney got zero votes in 59 Philadelphia precincts and also zero votes in 9 Cleveland, Ohio precincts. I thought this was only possible in the old Soviet Union where the chosen one got 100% of the vote!

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

That doesn't surprise me at all. Some voting precincts are very small. Why does anyone believe that Romney would get a vote in a precinct dominated by black people and/or liberals?

I was a poll worker in a Minneapolis city precinct in 1996. I remember Bob Dole got fewer votes than the Green Party candidate. And that was when we were much less polarized in our politics.

Is this really supposed to be some big deal or part of some tinfoil conspiracy?

How many votes did Obama receive in rural counties in Oklahoma or other parts of the Palin Real America?

Speaking of zero votes, nobody can find anyone in Paul Ryan's district that voted for Ryan as Representative... What's up with that ??

About 7 threads on this same topic. Can we please move to the next faux conspiracy?

Are you surprised mittens had no support among blacks, really? 93%-99% support among blacks means some locales will register 100%.

Maybe it's not vulture boy, perhaps buzzard boy...?

They cheated. Precincts in Philly and other places broke all kinds of election laws.
