Opinions of these facts on 2012 election results by Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law?

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law , St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some Interesting facts concerning the 2012 presidential election results:

Number of States won by:

Democrats: 19 Republicans: 29

Square miles of land won by:

Democrats: 580,000 Republicans: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by:

Democrats: 127 Million Republicans: 143 million

Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by:

Democrats: 13.2 Republicans: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Republicans won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of the country.

Democrat territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare...."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler ' s definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation ' s population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegals and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

    I wish you would've posted a link, but yes, our country is definitely going downhill culturally, politically, and economically, and it has been for the last 30 years. It started with Reagan.

    Well, they're not facts. Sorry, this is a hoax from last election brushed up and applied to this one. The professor says he never wrote it.

    This is yet another urban legend. That means it s bogus. Do a better web search and READ.

    My opinion is that the claims you post are an utterly desperate attempt to spin an election that was fairly won.

    We don't vote based on square mileage. We don't even proportion electoral votes based on square mileage. We vote based on number of people casting ballots. The other data you post fails to establish any meaningful correlation.

    There are two points of data that *do* matter.

    * Electoral Vote Winner: Obama (332 to 206)

    * Popular Vote Winner: Obama (65.9 million to 60.9 million)

    We could quibble about Professor Tyler's 40% number. I think it is 47%. Otherwise, he is accurate.

    Thank you for proving the adage"Figures lie and liars figure" .Aside from the fact that absolutely NOTHING can logically be deduced/concluded from the data telquel, you are a pathetic rabble rouser .

    I would like to see the number of people "living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare" who actually voted.

    From these facts, one is able to assume that democrats tend to live in areas which are more population dense. That's about it.

    And none of that means anything without a Population Density comparison.

    Edit: Did you know Red state take in more Government aid than they pay in takes while Blue states pay more in taxes than aid they take in? What does that tell you?
