I don’t believe this for a second.
This poll’s results, that is:
PPP’s first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard…and also declining in numbers.
49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn’t exist anymore.
Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren’t sure.
Do I believe there was at least some fraudulent activity that resulted in votes for Obama? Yes, I do. Do I believe that any such fraudulent activity was enough to swing a state to Obama? No, I sure don’t.
For example: we’ve got stories here about Chicago people being bussed into Sheboygan, Wisconsin, to vote for Obama. True? Dunno. Let’s assume that it is, just for the sake of argument. Was it decisive?
Obama won Wisconsin by over 210,000 votes. Can we honestly believe that Democrats came up with a quarter of a million fraudulent votes to win Wisconsin?
Pennsylvania’s got its own problems, what with some wards showing 90% turnout, 100% of which voted Obama. Troubling? You betcha. But Obama won Pennsylvania by over 300,000 votes, 52% to 47%.
If Democrats, or some Democrat shadow organization, was powerful enough to swing that many votes, they’d be powerful enough to have taken back the House, too. Scott Walker would surely not be Governor of Wisconsin today, and the entire conservative blogosphere would be in hiding or in re-education camps. Except Zilla, of course. They’ll never get to her.
This is the second time Public Policy Polling has run with results like this. I didn’t believe it last time, and I don’t believe it this time. Real, live, grown up Republicans who have jobs and families and went to college? Believing this?
I don’t buy it.
