A Possibility? Romney Got ZERO Votes In 59 Precincts in Philly, and 9 Precincts in Ohio

Comments Off on A Possibility? Romney Got ZERO Votes In 59 Precincts in Philly, and 9 Precincts in Ohio

 

Mitt Romney’s demographic troubles have, by this point, been well-rehearsed by practically every pundit across the political spectrum. However, even in his most troubled demographic (black voters, where Romney was trounced 94-6), the GOP nominee could probably comfort himself that at least – contrary to some polls – he didn’t get 0 percent.

But what if there are parts of the country where Romney not only got zero percent of the vote (a possibility in the case of vote totals so small that rounding renders them null), but actually got literally zero votes? For the nominee of a major party, that would be truly extraordinary – so extraordinary, in fact, that it would strain credulity.

And seeing as this highly unlikely turn of events happened not in one or two precincts, but in over 59 in Philadelphia, and 9 in Cleveland, that credulity can be safely said to be completely strained, if not broken. From the Philadelphia Inquirer:

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.

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.

But Larry Sabato isn’t convinced.

“I’d be surprised if there weren’t a handful of precincts that didn’t cast a vote for Romney,” the regular Fox News guest who also heads the Center for Politics at the University of Virginia, said.

“Not a single vote for Romney or even an error? That’s worth looking into,” he added.

But the oddity doesn’t end there. Weaselzippers also passes along this map of Ohio’s Cuyahoga County.

Romney Won Zero Votes In 9 Cleveland Precints, 59 Philadelphia Precincts

Note the pure blue areas, where Obama is supposed to have won this full, every-single-vote sweep. Such a victory isn’t logically impossible, but it’s so thoroughly unlikely that some observers are already raising questions of fraud. At bare minimum, this outcome certainly raises questions about the political makeup of the areas in question.

Recount in Progress: Elections offices under scrutiny for handling of Allen West ballots

Comments Off on Recount in Progress: Elections offices under scrutiny for handling of Allen West ballots

Day two of examining ballots and counting votes in the Congressional District 18 race is on the horizon and Allen West’s supporters are crying foul.

According to Tim Edson, West’s campaign manager, they have good reason to be outraged. In a media release sent out Wednesday, Edson said:

Late last night Congressman West maintained a district-wide lead of nearly 2000 votes until the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections ‘recounted’ thousands of early ballots.  Following that ‘recount’ Congressman West trailed by 2,400 votes.  In addition, there were numerous other disturbing irregularities reported at polls across St. Lucie County including the doors to polling places being locked when the polls closed, in direct violation of Florida law, thereby preventing the public from witnessing the procedures used to tabulate results.  The St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections office clearly ignored proper rules and procedures, and the scene at the Supervisor’s office last night could only be described as complete chaos.   Given the hostility and demonstrated incompetence of the St. Lucie County Supervisor of Elections, we believe it is critical that a full hand recount of the ballots take place in St. Lucie County.   We will continue to fight to ensure every vote is counted properly and fairly, and accordingly will pursue all legal means necessary.”

Other volunteers said they were frustrated and don’t trust Bucher, a known partisan Democrat, since she burned Republicans by opening the polls for two extra days after early voting had ended. Bucher reportedly notified Democratic Party leaders but left Republican leaders to find out through liberal newspapers.

Congressman Jim Moran’s son caught on tape teaching vote fraud techniques

Comments Off on Congressman Jim Moran’s son caught on tape teaching vote fraud techniques

While many Democrats are against the Voter ID laws, some of their leaders are teaching techniques on voter fraud and how to do it. Which BTW, violates Federal law!

A new undercover video from James O’Keefe and Project Veritas shows Pat Moran, son of longtime incumbent congressman Jim Moran (D-VA) and field director for his father’s re-election campaign, instructing a supporter in how to use fraudulent documents to cast a hundred illegal votes:

Note that Project Veritas prominently includes the unedited raw footage of this encounter, to counter the usual whines about false editing.  There’s not much question about what happens here.  An undercover operative posing as a very enthusiastic supporter says he’s got a hundred names of people who probably aren’t going to vote, and he wants to cast their ballots for them.

Update: At 5:00 PM Eastern, word from local reporters came across Twitter that Pat Moran has resigned from his father’s campaign in the wake of the Project Veritas video.

Mississippi NAACP Official Jailed For 5 Years for Voter Fraud

Comments Off on Mississippi NAACP Official Jailed For 5 Years for Voter Fraud

And they wonder why we need Voter ID laws, even tho this happened last year, it’s just now being publized. But we can’t have Voter ID laws because they are racist.

(UPDATE: This story occurred a year ago)
Too bad Lessadolla’s voting relatives can’t help her now.
They’re dead.

A Missippi NAACP official was jailed recently on 10 counts of voter fraud including voting for her dead relatives.

Breitbart
reported:

A Mississippi NAACP executive is in jail after being convicted of voter fraud for fraudulently casting absentee ballots, including for four dead people.

Lessadolla Sowers, who is a member of the Tunica County NAACP Executive Committee, was convicted and sentenced in April for what a judge said were crimes that cut “against the fabric of our free society.”

She was given a five-year sentence for each of the ten counts of voter fraud for which she was convicted, but the sentencing judge allowed her to serve the terms concurrently, according to the Tunica Times.

Matthew Vadum, author of Subversion, Inc., notes Sowers’s DNA was found on the inner seals of five envelopes that contained the absentee ballots, and liberal groups like the NAACP and ACORN have had a history of such shenanigans.

Democrat withdraws from 1st District congressional race after allegations she voted in two states

Comments Off on Democrat withdraws from 1st District congressional race after allegations she voted in two states

What is all that garbage about Voter ID laws not being good for anything but racism, now we learn this. And from a Democrat.

Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008.

It was unclear, however, whether she could remove her name from the ballot with the election less than two months away. Under state law, a candidate has until 70 days before an election to remove his or her name from the ballot. The deadline for the Nov. 6 election passed on Aug. 28.

Democratic leaders — who raised the allegations, urged Rosen to step aside and notified prosecutors — said they would gather Central Committee members this month to identify a write-in candidate for the district, which includes the Eastern Shore and parts of Harford, Carroll, Cecil and Baltimore counties.

Republicans, meanwhile, said the allegations prove that voter fraud is real and called on Democrats to join the GOP in calling for reforms.

Rosen, 57, a Cockeysville businesswoman and Maryland voter, told The Baltimore Sun that she registered to vote in Florida several years ago in order to support a “very close friend” running for the St. Petersburg City Council and to vote on local issues there.

Rosen said she was able to register in Florida because she owned property there.

Under Maryland law, a voter here may not maintain registration in a second state if it allows the voter to participate in state or federal elections there, according to Jared DeMarinis, director of candidacy and campaign finance at the State Board of Elections.

State Democratic Chairwoman Yvette Lewis said an examination of voting records in Maryland and Florida showed that Rosen participated in the 2006 general election and the 2008 primaries in both states.

Michael Savage – Voter Fraud Is A Serious Threat To This Election!

Comments Off on Michael Savage – Voter Fraud Is A Serious Threat To This Election!

Spanish Company Associated w/Geo. Soros Will “Count” America’s Votes Overseas In November

When the Spanish online voting company SCYTL bought the largest vote processing corporation in the United States, it also acquired the means of manufacturing the outcome of the 2012 election. For SOE, the Tampa based corporation purchased by SCYTL in January, supplies the election software which records, counts, and reports the votes of Americans in 26 states–900 total jurisdictions–across the nation.

As the largest election results reporting company in the US, SOE provides reports right down to the precinct level. But before going anywhere else, those election returns are routed to individual, company servers where the people who run them “…get ‘first look’ at results and the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.”   In short, “this redirects results …to a centralized privately held server which is not just for Ohio, but national; not just USA-based, but global.”

And although the votes will be cast in hometown, American precincts on Election Day, with the Barcelona-based SCYTL taking charge of the process, they will be routed and counted overseas.

GEORGE SOROS WILL CONTROL YOUR VOTES IN THE UP COMING PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION

– Follow the bouncing ball on the criminal corruption ruse of your USA votes.
1.) The Obama Government has outsourced the counting of votes for the 2012 election. But since WHEN does the nation need to outsource a task as uncomplicated and straightforward as vote-counting?
2.) Obama outsorced the counting to a Tampa Florida company, named SOE, that had previously been used to administer the vote counting process for over 500 American jurisdictions.
3.) But recently, SOE software has now been sold to a company named SCYTL, owned by George Soros, headquartered in Spain.
4.) The votes will go to SCYTL, the question becomes as to WHY Must local votes for each precinct will be downloaded to SCYTL’s main server – leaving no TRACEABLE record of how many, and what votes were scored! Which of course means that said votes will be MERGED; and any discrepancies at lower levels will be IMPOSSIBLE to track.
5.) But wait, it gets murkierSCYTL is shadow owned by Pere Valles, a former CEO of GlobalNet; who just HAPPENS to have been a maximum level contributor to the Obama Campaign in 2008. Not surprisingly, Valles  also has contacts with Media Matters, a communication consortium owned by: George Soros.
6.) Now the bad news: according to the “Black Box” voting site, this centralizes one “middleman” access point for over 525 voting jurisdictions: (AL, AZ, CA, CO, DC, FL, KY, MI, KS, IL, IN, NC, NM, MN, NY, SC, TX, UT, WA. – and growing).”

7. If this is allowed to stand, it means that as local election results funnel through SOE’s computers (typically before they reach the public elsewhere), those who run the main servers for SOE essentially get “first look” at results, AND  the ability to immediately and privately examine vote details throughout the USA.

8.) This raises an unending amount of troubling questions:

a.) How can a company that is located in Spain owned by George Soros, be responsible for verifying the results of American elections? How can the integrity of the vote be guaranteed, when votes are transmitted in digital form, with NO paperwork backup to check for discrepancies?

b.) It has been questioned since the inception of the voting machine how to preclude tampering with said machines; yet no answers are forthcoming. How easily can the software that controls these devices be programmed to “count” erroneously?

c.) Even worse, with SCYTL in charge, there will be no ballots. No physical evidence. No chain of resonsibility. No way for the public to authenticate who actually cast the votes, nor chain of custody, or the count.

d.)Ergo, does this not invite dishonest practices? – such as beginning the voting day with counts that were not reset to zero? Or the practice of switching, within the software, votes from one candidate to another?

e.)Will Harry Reid’s re-election in Nevada serve as a template for Barack Obama in 2012?

f.) Worst of all, why would we want to outsource a job, that goes to the very core of our constitutional process, to an outside organization? Because that’s how the democrats want it – having no other possible means to win.

g.) Which of course explains why Dems fight voter ID laws – because that would be mark the beginning of the end of voter fraud. The other end being some kind of auditing of all electronic voting machines.

Face it fellow citizens: the Motor Voter Law, and the electronic voting machine are turning America into a banana republic; while we act like helpless little bunnies; as the Left literally continues to steal elections – right  beneath our quivering little noses.

So do we sit by idly? – or take action. Pick up the phone. Write a letter. Send a fax to your local Congressperson or Senator.

Gallup caught lying about the generic ballot trend on Voters

Comments Off on Gallup caught lying about the generic ballot trend on Voters

This is a long article, but very interesting………………

 

Pelosi Boehner

The Gallup Generic Ballot is a trusted, widely reported resource. I’ve analyzed it extensively, and defended it to others. But yesterday, when I covered the poll’s latest release, Gallup lied. I was lied to, you were lied to, everyone who’s trusted the Gallup name got lied to.

How? Gallup is combining two different sampling methods into one so-called trend of Registered Voters (complete with captioned graph), getting different results, but pretending they show one trend all the same.

Remember on June 2 when Republicans took a big lead in the Gallup generic ballot? I used it to project conservatively a 45 seat Republican gain in the House. This was a poll of registered voters, according to Gallup’s Survey Methods notes:

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted May 24-30, 2010, with a random sample of 1,594 registered voters, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using a random-digit-dial sampling technique.

But now on July 19 that Democrats are showing a big lead, despite the fact that Gallup’s pretty graph now is titled Candidate Preferences in 2010 Congressional Elections, Among Registered Voters, the sampling is different:

Results are based on telephone interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking July 12-18, 2010, with a random sample of 1,535 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.

Catch the difference? The Republicans lead with a sample of Registered Voters, but the Democrats lead with a sample of Adults. Someone who trusted Gallup’s pretty, but lying, picture would never have noticed. Real Clear Politics noticed, and actually recorded the polls differently. Friends noticed this and alerted me.

It is terribly dishonest for Gallup to string together two different polls as one series, as Gallup does not only in their graphs, but in their write-ups as well. Here’s an example from the July 19 release:

The Democrats’ six-point advantage in Gallup Daily interviewing from July 12-18 represents the first statistically significant lead for that party’s candidates since Gallup began weekly tracking of this measure in March.

Notice, they call the series one measure, even though it’s at least two different kinds of polls with two different kinds of sampling pools. You cannot pretend that a poll of all adults and a poll filtered by registered voters are part of the same series, even if the same questions are asked. That’s Polling 101, and whoever’s responsible for the Gallup release should have known this, and certainly whoever’s responsible for oversight of the Gallup releases would know this.

Somebody’s lying. I have no reason to believe that Gallup’s actual polling is fabricated, but it’s easy to see that how Gallup packages its results is designed to mislead readers into seeing trends that just aren’t there. Observe the Gallup trend, per Real Clear Politics, with polls of adults distinguished from polls of registered voters, the most honest approach:

Date Pool Lead
7-18 A D+6
7-11 RV D+1
7-3 RV R+6
6-27 RV D+1
6-20 RV D+0
6-13 RV R+5
6-6 RV D+0

Sorted this way the trend is clear: Registered Voters oscillate between near-ties for the Democrats, and big leads for the Republicans. But once we switch to Adults, Democrats suddenly take a big edge of their own.

Is this credible? No, but you’d never know it if you took Gallup’s releases at face value. Even if the truth was there if you dig deep enough, it’s still a lie to misrepresent the data as Gallup has done.

As a final note, I have a prediction: Somebody, perhaps even Gallup, will claim that the Survey Notes were mistaken in this last release, and that the poll was of Registered Voters, but was just recorded wrongly. If this is the case, then that still suggests a serious lapse of quality control at Gallup leading to misinformation being published, and still calls into question every poll release Gallup makes. So I don’t buy it as a defense.

Besides, Gallup noted that the latest Generic Ballot was included as part of a daily tracking poll. It is vastly more likely that this change is a result of cost-cutting, combining one poll with another to save money over the summer, when they hope nobody will notice. But really, when you change the secret sauce, somebody’s going to notice.

Update: Gallup has now issued a correction alongside the bare changing of ‘adults’ to ‘registered voters’ in the Survey Methods:

Editor’s note: The original version of this story inadvertently referred to national adults rather than registered voters in the survey methods statement. The results reported here and in all Gallup generic ballot trends so far this year are based on registered voters; the survey methods statement now correctly reflects that.

A commenter at RedState.com pointed out a significant flaw in this story: the sample size didn’t change. Originally the post read 1,535 adults, now it reads 1,535 registered voters. However the overall daily Obama Job Approval tracking poll also surveys “approximately 1,500 national adults.” are we to believe that approximately 99% of the adults in daily tracking sample were registered to vote? MSNBC reported in 2008 that about 80% of American adults were registered, and that number will decline from 2008 to 2010 as voters are purged and don’t re-register for the midterm. The odds against this are astronomical, making this poll an incredible outlier for so many to be registered.

My conclusion: that this was a simple typo just doesn’t add up.

This is becoming a political game apparently. With the Obama administrations rise to power along with the progressives in congress, it is becoming very difficult to believe anything without really checking a number of sources. I guess it goes with the general decline in the morals of our society. The media (State run media as Rush says) is no longer worthy of following, Obama is the master of deception when he talks, politicians and judges no longer respect the constitution – and the beat goes on. Voters in Nov have the opportunity to vote democrat and solidify the decline of our Nation or vote republican and start this country back to a prosperous, moral country (not that there aren’t progressives in the republican party as well that need to be voted out).
