Virginia: Obama wins even if all 3rd Party votes went to Romney

Here are some bummer statistics.

I thought Virgil Goode might have siphoned off enough votes to affect the outcome but I was wrong.

So Goode was a non-issue in the important swing state of Virginia.

Republicans busted his balls for running - like he didn't have a right to.

But Goode held his principled ground and ran anyway. He had some very good ideas - though not perfect.

Anyway - even if you add up all 3rd party votes AND write-ins, Obama still wins by a whole point.

If you can believe the election results, here is link to how it played out:

I could like him, Virgil Goode

Kudos to him. I guess either the fear of the other guy or the rigged machines prevented 3rd parties to have a real chance.

Bravo to Virgil Goode. My guess is Dr. Paul voted for him...

...over Gary Johnson.

I would give a 51% chance he voted for Goode verses 49% for Johnson.

I sure as hell don't think he voted for Romney, although Dr. Paul would not tell us this time who he chose (like he did in 2008 - Chuck Baldwin - Constitution Party).

Maybe he stayed very principled and wrote HIMSELF in!
