No Dirty Dealing In Democrat Precincts - - - Right.


Recommended Posts

This is a mathematical impossibility. 

Nov 12, 2012 · Just ignore the article you’re about to read: PHILLY.COM – It’s one thing for a Democratic presidential candidate to dominate a Democratic city like Philadelphia, but check out this head-spinning figure: In 59 voting divisions in the city, Mitt Romney received not one vote

Wrong.

It's not true that Romney got zero votes, or even "almost" zero votes, in Philadelphia; he got 96,467 votes, about 14% of the city total. Rather, Romney got zero votes in 50 of the city's 1,687 voting "divisions," according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. There is no basis for Trump's suggestion that the results in these divisions are evidence of fraud.

 

You're really on a roll with the lying, AJ.

DeFelice noted that most of the divisions where Romney had no luck in 2012 are in North and West Philadelphia, which are overwhelming Democratic and African American.

"It was a presidential election," he said. "You had a rich, white Republican running against a black Democrat."

Al Schmidt is vice chairman of the City Commissioners and the lone Republican on the three-member board that runs Philadelphia's elections.

He said people outside of Philadelphia who are struck by the issue may not know the city has so many divisions, which are also sometimes referred to as precincts.

"These precincts are very small, geographically," he said. "And frequently, the electorate is very homogenous because we may be talking about one building or one block."

City Councilman David Oh, one of three Republicans out of 17 members on Council, leads the Third Ward, where Romney received no votes in two of 22 divisions in 2012. His ward is the western edge of Philadelphia, next to Cobbs Creek.

Oh, like other Republicans, noted that President Obama was up for reelection as the nation's first African American president in 2012, a historic event that resonated with many black voters in the city.

"There's no evidence to me that there's any cheating going on," Oh said. "It's really not suspect under those circumstances."

Denise Furey, the Republican leader of the 46th Ward in West Philadelphia, said she was not surprised when Romney received no votes in two of her 23 divisions. Those divisions, she said, are "almost exclusively African American" but many years turn out some reliable Republican voters.

"What we found in the Obama races was a lot of people who would typically vote Republican voted for Mr. Obama," Furey said. "That is not surprising to me."

So you're saying there was not one white or one Republican in those areas, correct?

 

Here's the original article:

I'm not obligated to paraphrase it for people too lazy to do their own reading.

 

But the takeaway is that the reporters knocked on doors all over every precinct and couldn't find any Republicans who claimed their votes weren't counted. This is followed by an explanation of why this is so.

 

It's not a mathematical impossibility. A single all-black apartment building voting only for the first black president is not outlandish at all.
