    Look at those numbers - 120.5MM people voted!  What is so interesting is that it must be a huge percentage of  eligible voters in this country.  Does anyone know the Nationwide total of registered/eligible voters?  Googling only shows state figures.  

    Of course, in Googling for the numbers, there were several tin-foil posts saying Obama won due to voter fraud.  I can't help but wonder whether they just see in others what they see in themselves.  Go figure....

        for this link.  A full half of voting age citizens voted in this election.  I wonder what it would be if we counted only registered voters.
