Re: Election statistics

We are currently in the process of analyzing last week’s election—what went right, what went wrong, and what we can do better.

While obviously we did not accomplish everything we set out to do, I wanted to pass along some of the highlights, which include Mitt Romney’s historic win here in Missouri, as well as our overwhelming victories in the General Assembly and at the county level.

I’ve also attached the county-by-county presidential margin map and maps of our seats in the State House and Senate.

A more complete analysis is expected in the coming weeks, and I welcome your thoughts and input.

Finally, I’d like to thank you all for your hard work this election cycle on behalf of all of our candidates—those who won and those who came up short.

2012 General Election Statistics

President

  • Despite Mitt Romney’s loss nationally, Missouri solidified its position as a red state in presidential elections.
  • In fact, Missouri has gone for the GOP nominee for president in 4 consecutive elections for the first time in state history.
  • Romney won the state by more than 263,000 votes—the largest margin of victory by any candidate in a presidential election since 1984.
  • Romney won 111 of Missouri’s counties. His largest margin of victory came in Osage County, where he won 77% of the vote (a margin of nearly 56 points).
  • Romney won 107 counties with at least 55% of the vote.
  • Romney won 96 counties with at least 60% of the vote.
  • Romney won 34 counties with at least 70% of the vote.

U.S. Congress

  • Republicans will now hold a 6-2 advantage in Missouri’s congressional delegation—and half of Missouri’s GOP congressional delegation is now made up of women.
  • All 6 of our victorious Republican candidates won their district with at least 60% of the vote.
  • Across the state, more than 1.4 million Missourians cast a ballot for a Republican congressional candidate. By contrast, just over 1.1 million votes were cast for a Democrat candidate—a difference of well over 300,000 voters.
  • 108 out of Missouri’s 114 counties are fully represented in Congress by a Republican representative.

Missouri General Assembly

Missouri House of Representatives

  • Republicans increased the size of our historic margin in the State House—netting 4 seats and increasing our majority from 106 to 110.
  • Our 110-53 margin is the first time in history Republicans have held a veto-proof majority in the Missouri House.

Missouri Senate

  • Republican candidates won 4 out of the 5 competitive Senate races, including our open seats in SD 25, as well as Districts 3, 17, and 19, which have MRP ratings below 50%.
  • In addition, 6 GOP candidates for Senate had no serious Democratic opposition.
  • In the Missouri Senate, Republicans hold a veto-proof 24-10 majority.

Other Races

  • Lt. Governor Peter Kinder defeated his Democratic challenger by more than 105,000 votes.

County Races

  • We are currently in the process of compiling a list of our victories at county courthouses across the state. This is a time-intensive process; however, according to our early findings, it is clear that dozens of Republicans won seats previously held by Democrats, while only a handful of GOP officeholders were defeated.
  • This is in addition to our significant gains during the 2010 cycle, when Republicans won 96 new seats at the county level. Republicans now hold a commanding majority of county offices across the state.

I’m sure I’m a racist for posting this disgusting video:

If you are paying taxes, why are you not screaming?!?

CCTP Legislative Request Defending Against Agenda 21

By David Larson

To the Missouri State Representatives elected by citizens of Cape Girardeau County,

In a similar fashion as Alabama’s Anti-Agenda bill SB477, members of CCTP urge you to enact the legislative language below or similar legislation in an effort to protect our property, rights, and freedoms under the U.S Constitution and the Missouri State Constitution:

An Act,

Relating to due process; to prohibit the State of Missouri and its political subdivisions from adopting and developing environmental and developmental policies that, without due process, would infringe or restrict the private property rights of the owner of the property.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF MISSOURI:

Section 1.

(a) As used in this section, “political subdivisions” means all state, county, incorporated city, unincorporated city, public local entity, public-private partnership, and any other public entity of the state, a county, or city.

(b) The State of Missouri and all political subdivisions may not adopt or implement policy recommendations that deliberately or inadvertently infringe or restrict private property rights without due process, as may be required by policy recommendations originating in, or traceable to “Agenda 21,” adopted by the United Nations in 1992 at its Conference on Environment and Development or any other international law or ancillary plan of action that contravenes the Constitution of the United States or the Constitution of the State of Missouri.

(c) Since the United Nations has accredited and enlisted numerous non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations to assist in the implementation of its policies relative to Agenda 21 around the world, the State of Missouri and all political subdivisions may not enter into any agreement, expend any sum of money, or receive funds contracting services, or giving financial aid to or receiving financial aid from those non-governmental and inter-governmental organizations as defined in Agenda 21.

Section 2. This act shall become effective on the first day of the third month following its passage and approval by the Governor, or its otherwise becoming law.

Pavlov’s Monkeys

Received via E-Mail

If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the stairs and climb toward the banana.

As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the other monkeys with cold water. After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result … all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys will try to prevent it.

Now, put the cold water away.

Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one. The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the stairs.  To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the crap out of him.  After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs he will be assaulted.

Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it with a new one. The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked.  The previous newcomer takes part in the punishment… with enthusiasm. Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed by a fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes to
the stairs he is attacked. Most of the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs.

Neither do they know why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.

Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water. Nevertheless, none of the monkeys will try to climb the stairway for the banana.

Why, you ask? Because in their minds…that is the way it has always been!

This, my friends, is how Congress operates… and is why, from time to time, all of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.

Don’t Blame Romney?!?!

Ann Coulter tells us not to blame Romney?!?!  Is she kidding?

I’m sorry Ann, but you are crazy?  You sound like a Democrat.  You sound like Obama.  Romney’s version of “It’s Bush’s Fault!”

Romney was “perfect” candidate?  Your Nuts!  A perfect candidate wins.  Obama is a flawed candidate and he won!

Obama “quadrupled” gas prices?  It was $1.87 at BHO Inaugural; tell me oh brilliant one, at what point were gas prices $7.48.  Now you just look ignorant.

“Blaming the candidate may be fun”? Oh, so like Obama, “The buck stops with you.”

“Bachmann fighting for political life”?  She WON in a newly gerrymandered district; your guy lost!  I’ll bet she went to the mat

Akin is the problem? You and your ilk that didn’t stand by him were the problem!  You and your pals writing commercials for McCaskill were the problem – that she could just play the words of her opponent’s ‘compatriots’ to beat him up.

A republican party that doesn’t know to stay out of the weeds on abortion is the problem.  It’s simple, “My opponent kills babies; I don’t want to kill babies.”

“The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s “reproductive rights,” No, the last week was spent discussing Christie throwin’ lots of love to Obama.

Comments on abortion are the problem?  The Republican Party platform is 100% pro-life.  Change the platform if you don’t want candidates to follow it.

Oh, a straw man ‘band fan’ comparison?  No Purist Conservative thinks like that; maybe you do, but not a Conservative.  Wake up Ann; we got behind Romney even after the attack on Grass Roots and Ron Paul that Romney pulled at the Convention.

So you like the band analogy?  Okay, then here’s what it really is regarding Akin.  It’s really like being in the band and writing a bad song.  In this case, instead of telling him it was a bad song, you tried to throw him out of the band after he had written 12 great songs.

Your guy lost for one reason and one reason only; he wouldn’t go to the mat.  McCain wouldn’t go to the mat.  Romney wouldn’t go to the mat.  Obama went to the mat – twice – and he won.
