... In all states minus two -- New York and California.

In New York, Obama got 4,485,877; and in California, he got 7,854,285. Subtract those votes from Obama's popular vote total, and he has 53,575,634

Romney in NY got 2,490,496; and in California, he got 4,839,958. Subtract those numbers from his popular vote total, and you have 53,603,046.

Just shows how close this election really was, despite Obama's apparently solid 4% margin of victory in the popular vote and 332 electoral votes.

What about if you eliminate Texas and the states of the Deep South instead of eliminating California and New York, though? Wink

If only we could eliminate men or, if only we could eliminate women none of us would have been born.

Bush won the popular vote in 2000 if you just take away Illinois, albeit by the skin of his teeth. If you take away New York, he won it by a more comfortable margin.

Yeah, it's fun to think about, but that's about all it is.
