  •  It's how the votes are counted… (0+ / 0-)

    On the Wednesday after the election the popular vote looked like this:
    Obama 58,720,700 (50.1%)
    Romney 56,145,950 (48.4%)

    When all the votes were certified after Christmas the popular vote ended up like this:
    Obama 65,899,557 (51.06%)
    Romney 60,931,959 (47.21%)

    Obama ended up gaining almost 3 million votes on Romney after the elections. Now imagine the consequences if on election night the GOP candidate started out with a small lead, but lost it over the next six weeks as states slowly counted their votes.
