    A week after President Obama defeated Mitt Romney in the 2012 presidential election, questions continue to arise around polling results in swing states that don't quite add up.

    In the key swing state of Ohio, where President Obama's 103,481 vote margin gave him 18 electoral college votes, several instances of unusual results have been reported.

    I'm trying to figure out the discrepancies the blog points us to, but math-wise I don't see any.

    It points to the fact that there are 98,000 voters in one county and 60,000 of those people voted. So what? Where's the discrepancy there?

    He mentions the fact that there are several counties where Mitt Romney received zero votes. Why does this come as such a shock to a party that is unfriendly to black people, Hispanics, gay people, moderate women, Asians, Jews, Natives, etc?

    Stupid article by another right-winger who is surprised by the reality that exists apart from Bullshit Mountain where he comes from.

    Interpol is right. It makes no sense. Its like he started out with a premise and then tried, in vain!, to squeeze the numbers to fit.

    They don't.

    Just more rw lies.

    In Wood County, where President Obama defeated Romney by a 31,596 to 28,996 margin, a total of 106,258 voters were registered. Comically, the online edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer showed that recent census data reports only 98,213 residents of Wood County are eligible to vote, but no mention of the discrepancy was made before the election.

    From the article.
    Not sure how accurate the article is...

    No, there is no unusual discrepancy.

    Well, yes, there is an obvious unusual discrepancy. That of the wingnuts perceptions of reality, and of reality itself. Very large discrepancy.

    Wood County Ohio Census

    Wood County, Ohio Population, 2011 estimate 126,355
    Wood County, Ohio Population, 2010 census 125,488
    Wood County, Ohio Persons under 18 years, 2011 percent 21.3%

    I come up with only 99,441 possible eligible voters. Something smells very rotten in Wood County, Ohio. ACORN must be registering imaginary voters again.
