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.

This study by one of the law professors at Hamline speaks volumes about why Hamline is a school for some of the least promising law students.
On further investigation I needlessly maligned Prof. Olson and his school. Not only are these not facts but they were not authored by Prof. Olson. He has been accused of other such unfacts in the past concerning the 2008 and 2000 elections too. You should check your so-called facts before you use them as a basis for BS questions like this one. I apologize to Prof. Olson and Hamline for assuming your attribution was correct. https://skeptic78240.wordpress.com/2015/05/03/inte...

The man is obviously wrong, demonstratively wrong, and a bigot. The few factual things he gets correct are totally immaterial to the issue of who was elected President. Obama won the majority of votes of citizens in the US.

Facts are facts. There isn't an argument about the facts. The real questions/opinions are how do we get more Americans away from dependency. LOL
