I know we are all giddy right now with the big Obama leads nationally and in Ohio, Florida, etc.  but I was wondering about something.  How big a lead do you have to have to protect against vote fraud by the electronic machines all owned by right wing Republican companies??  I mean how much of a lead would Obama have to have so that a Romney win would be considered so unlikely that there would have to be an investiation??    The question is especially important in nine states...why?  follow me....

The nine states in question all have Republican governors..and not just Republican governors, but radical right wing Republican governors.  We are talking Rick Scott in Florida , Scott Walker in Wisconsin, John Kasich in Ohio, Rick Snyder in Michigan, just to name a few... These governors along with their secretary's of state could easily flip a couple of switches (as was done in Ohio in 2004) and tip the election to Romney.

I venture very few people outisde of the political junkies even know that almost our entire vote counting apparatus is owned by  private right wing radical companies!!

No other country in the industrialized world would allow this situation to exist!!

So my question is this: How big a lead does Obama have to have going into the election to make a Romney victory so unlikely that, if it does happen, their would have to be an investigation....Poll follows...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
