An honest look at the 2012 Presidential Election Results
As President Obama attempts to persuade us that he has a decisive mandate for his left-wing, big government, some say,"socialist", agenda (he does not).
Obama received 3,599,803 FEWER votes in 2012 than 2008. Mitt Romney received nearly 1 million MORE votes in 2012 than John McCain garnered in 2008. Obama's share of the Electoral College dropped, and 48.98% of voters voted AGAINST him.
While Obama did win the election, nearly half of the nation voted against him and his agenda. That is NOT a decisive mandate, and that is why we have checks and balances in our government.
