Does Barack Obama Have A Mandate? A Look At The Numbers

However you slice it, Barack Obama does not come even close to a “mandate.”

He actually comes in near the bottom for percent total votes cast and percent total voters; he’s in the lower middle for percent per capita. So low is he that only an acts of hubris, historical ignorance, or prevarication would allow one to say he does have a mandate. -- | William M. Briggs, Statistician

Your Say

The Commielibs & RINOs act as if the Commielibs have a mandate and are the arbiter of the cultural narratives regardles of the facts. The conservatives refuse to act on their mandate so long as even one person resists them.

For the left, possession is nine tenths of the mandate.

And that assumes Obama even won the election by any real count. But it doesn't matter any more. Vote if you want to, I mean people toss coins into fountains and check fortune cookies too even though they know its crap.

If the press says he does and he says he does, he does. Get over it. The pain comes later.
