    you two should read the link. There are lots of reasons this can happen. It is not sinister and the fact that they voter higher for Obama is irrelevant because Romney won the state by 22%. You realize that in person voter fraud is so rare and there is no evidence this led to that. In fact one of the reasons that the census numbers might be lower than registered voters is because....wait for.......the right wing loons who told people not fill out forms or cooperate with census takers. So the right wing loons create a situation and then complain about it. This is delicious.

    Your source talks about the census not being completed properly, so how did you come to this conclusion that it was voter fraud?

    Is having more voters than voting age population a sign that voter fraud could be taking place? Sure. Is it proof? No. Just like not having more voters than voting age population doesn't necessarily mean voter fraud is not taking place. The metric is not indicative one way or another.

    Ah. You ignored all the many reasons why there are more registered voters than voting-age population (note that I did not say "ACTIVE", because that's not what the article said - that's what YOU added). You ignored the obvious problem with underreporting in the census (remember when Michelle Bachmann was telling everyone to don't take part in the census?). You ignored all the other admin problems the article listed. All you cared about was "THE DEMOCRATS ARE COMMITTING VOTER FRAUD!!!!!"

    Statistically that makes absolutely no sense.

    You claim there are "lots of reasons" but offer but one weak explanation and then write it off because Romney won.

    I would have thought voter fraud is voter fraud, and this is voter fraud,

    According to the left, this never happens. I have never known of a cheater who admitted it unless thumb screws were involved.

    No wonder Mitt Romney won the state so easily.
