What is really interesting are some demographic breakdowns I saw on the last election. Independants overwhelmingly voted for Romney-not Obama. Young voters also did not turn out for Obama like in 08 with many switching to Romney. What was the difference in the vote totals then? It was large numbers of conservatives sitting out the election.
Factor in some urban districts with 140% voter turn out, voting 98% for Obama, in key swing states such as Va, Pa, and Ohio and there you go.
Number of Republican governors - 30 out of 50
Number of Republican controlled state legislatures - 26
Number of Democrat controlled state legislatures - 18
Number of contested state legislatures - 6
While I agree that Democratic control is indeed centered in the more populous states, I remain convinced that the 2012 victory was secured by Democratic vote fraud on an industrial scale.
Strictly my opinion, of course.
