Election Numbers Can Deceive
The most incorrect reason advanced for the president’s re-election and a modest loss of GOP seats in the Senate and House was that Republicans need to undergo major changes in their basic platforms.
A map of the country in which the counties are colored red or blue indicating which party won the majority of voters indicate that the GOP won a majority of close to 80 percent of the counties, if you exclude the states from Maryland northward along the East Coast as well as the three West Coast states.
Also overlooked in the election results is the fact that the GOP gained control of the largest number of state legislatures since 1928.
A similar surge occurred in GOP governors.
It seems to me that there are three major reasons for the president’s re-election.
He received 95 percent of the “black” vote in spite of the fact that many of them are opposed to his stance on moral issues.
He received a very large percent of the “Latino” vote, no doubt helped by his Dream Act by executive order rather than legislation.
Thirdly and sadly, many Americans who profess themselves as Christians accept the unbiblical precepts included in the Democrat party platform at their convention of abortion on demand, same sex marriage, and leaving God out.
Although the final voter count has not yet been completed, the estimate is that the president received between 3 and 5 million fewer votes in 2012 than in 2008.
Therefore, the president’s wide margins in these three voter categories probably made him the winner.
The voter count for Mitt Romney will be better than the low numbers put up by McCain in 2012, but not by much.
Many conservative voters just didn’t vote. They want a Reagan conservative with political prowess.
