Philly: Obama 19,605 / Romney 0
Philly.com has an election analysis piece up today discussing how 59 voting districts there gave 19605 votes to Obama and zero, zilch, nada for Romney.

It is a lengthy article and the 4 paragraphs here don't really do it justice. It's worth a read.

Quote:[...]
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."
[...]
Eighteen Republicans reportedly live in the nearby 15th Division, according to city registration records. The 15th has the distinction of pitching two straight Republican shutouts - zero votes for McCain in 2008, zero for Romney on Tuesday. Oh, and 13 other city divisions did the same thing in 2008 and 2012.
[...]
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.

No Justice? No Peace!

That is the definition of voter fraud to the repubs, it's fraud to NOT vote for them. Tongue
