#1 Where did they go? If most of them went into the bit bucket, we would never know. Electronic voting and voting machines are computerized fraud. US should go back to paper ballots and a chain of evidence for ballot boxes.
There will be similar discussions in 2016.

#2 There are some serious problems with the numbers. I'm hoping to see some stories on this issue in the next few days.

#3 Who votes doesn't matter - what matters is who counts the votes.

#4 Oh hush, they didn't turn out.

#5 Shipman:

Yes, that's part of it. Doesn't explain all the counties with 100% turnout for example.

#6 I would love to see numbers cross-indexed by which ones have electric voting machines or not.

#7 Also by the party of tbe election commissioner. Probably nothing suspicious but if so that would be the easiest way to spot oddities large enough to have effected the numbers.

#8 Romney is only about 2M short of McCain as of a few hours ago.

The author of the article doesn't seem to realize that many precincts count late because of various issues.

#9 Romney's GOTV sucked. Of course, GOTV really ought to be the party's responsibility. Spending-wise, the all-out sprint near the end of the primaries leaves no cash for GOTV.

Besides, GOTV is the cousin of constituent service. The Dems have had paid professionals in place around the country since Obama was elected. What was the RNC doing? Obama was a community organizer, which is a pretty name for ward heeler. He had people canvassing for votes from day one of his administration. The GOP's GOTV operation was asleep at the wheel, counting its cash while the DNC drained its coffers by paying professionals to keep in regular touch with its voter base, perhaps providing constituent service or whatever. On election day, that attention to detail paid off.

#10 Here's the thing. If Romney had gotten an additional 500K votes, he would have won the election. The GOP has no ground game. What a crushing disappointment.

#11 If your constituency is poor it's cheap to entice them to get to the polls; Romney's constituency was largely middle class, had jobs and responsibilities, and the enticements it would take to affect their routine would be beyond the means of political operatives as well as being illegal (and obviously so.)

#12 Look, folks. The difference is down in the noise and corruption level. You have to beat the opponent by 5% or more to be sure that you get a decisive win. How can you prove voting irregularities? If you had people of good will, then everyone is approaching the voting with honesty. But many are not, and it is difficult or impossible to prove fraud.

We are a house divided and all the lawyers in the world will not make this thing clean. That is the reality as I see it.

IIUC, the majority of America's minority voters picked the Bammer, AFAIK to include women + the majority of Jewish-American voters which was surprising.

OTOH FOX NEWS ALL-STAR PANEL > KRAUTHAMMER = opined that the Bammer does NOT have any conclusive or overwhelming mandate from the Voters, + that Obama's second term is starting off wid America in deep trouble.

#14 VarCandidate = "Mitt Romney"
I = 1
If I <> 3 And VarCandidate = "Mitt Romney then
VarCandidate = "Mitt Romney"
I = I + 1
VarCandidate = "Barack Obama"
I = 1

Just wrote as an example 8 simple lines of software code that if embedded in the voting system will give every third vote cast for Mitt Romney to Barack Obama.

#15 Never, ever trust a computer system used in an election. Use only paper ballots. Period. Computers are too easy to program to favor the odds you want favored.
