Was there a last minute 6% vote stuff for Romney?Submitted by attackapathy on Wed, 01/11/2012 - 03:46
In the end, After strongly going at Romney 35% Paul 25% all day long as the votes came in, in the end it seems some vote stuffing was in order as Romney came out on top at 40% to Paul’s 23%.
There is no way to trace the ballots in New Hampshire as this is a electronic voting machine state for the vast majority of its precincts.
Its oddly reminiscent to the weird secret vote totals pushing up both Romney and Santorum in Iowa.
At the end of the day, anytime a vote occurs without a clear ballot box that monitors can watch, and a public count from that box, the vote is pretty much suspect.
While we can’t prove cheating at this point, it seems clear that it is LIKELY they padded Romney’s vote by 6% to put him over the top in the lead position. Maybe Paul at 26% was getting just a bit too close for their liking. They have always had a mantra that winning by 40% was the goal for Romney.
