    Obama did not win by a majority

    The media, so far, has REFUSED to publish TOTAL votes casts, to try to make it falsely seem that Obama won a majority of the votes by 3 million and by 50.45% of the total vote.
    That, of course is a lie.

    By vote totals - so far as it isn't over AND Florida NOT yet totalled, 3rd party and independent candidates received 1.43% of the vote. Thus, out of 119 million votes, Obama did not win with 50% of the vote. Obama won with 49% of the vote.

    51% of American voted AGAINST PRESIDENT OBAMA. We need to remember a MAJORITY of Americans voted against him. He has NO mandate.

    EVERYONE NEEDS TO REMEMBER THAT. Note it over and over. Obama's win was only 49% of total votes cast. He received a PLURALITY, and NOT a MAJORITY.

    basically yes^. there is no mandate. even if obama had won by landslide, the american people chose to not flip the house, by definition the mandate is divided government/gridlock.

    Well, I think its important to note the numbers relative to 2008. Obama lost ground in almost all demographics. I think it's a little extreme to call this a mandate.
    One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.

    He may not have a majority.

    But he does have a plurality.

    And that's absolutely enough to win an election in the U.S.

    It's also the reason why third-party candidates can't get elected, even though they may be better representatives of the constituents.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Apparently a majority from the Supreme Court is enough of a substitution for a mandate.

    Re: Obama did not win by a majority

    Oh you figured it out, Obama did not really win. Someone tell karl rove before he bursts a artery.

    Anyway, yeah he won. Don't worry, he cannot do it a third time so you are safe. Take some meds and a deep breath and just let the truth sink in. It will be OK.

    Re: Obama did not win by a majority

    ^ I think I JUST won the BEST post-election anti-Obama reality.

    The Demo media ABSOLUTELY REFUSES to publish TOTAL VOTES CAST OR RESULTS FOR 3rd PARTY AND INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES - to foster the LIE that Obama received a majority of votes - and then Democrats claim they "HAVE A MANDATE."

    The FACT IS, a MAJORITY of voters voted that they did NOT want Obama to remain president. He gained a technical plurality, not a majority. The majority of voters rejected him and his agenda.

    IT IS THAT SIMPLE A FACT.

    I don't dispute that he won. Rather that the majority of voters voted to reject him And obviously he did NOT receive a "mandate." Last time he did. This time he did not.

    The last plurality but rejected by the majority candidate was W Bush's 2nd term - and it appears by almost exactly the same total margin. We all know how well that worked out for us - a lame duck president a majority of voters rejected.

    Can our tea party OPer tell us the last time a Republican president had a majority? Or does it matter for his meme.
