Some of us hear it all the time: “If you don’t vote for Romney it is a vote for Obama.” This is just ludicrous. Why? Because the logic is fatal. All electoral college polls show Obama winning the election in a landslide. So using that logic, people are wasting their vote on Romney and might as well vote for Obama.
As of right now (August 12th 2012) polls show Obama with 237 ECV, Romney with 191 and there are 110 toss up ECV. Obama is winning almost every single toss up state. Romney would need to win 70% of the tossups. Obama would only need to win FL and another small toss up state to win. Some polls have him leading by 5+% in Florida.
So even if Romney gets 51% of the toss up electoral college votes he will still lose. So those of you saying you are wasting your vote, or you want Obama to win if you don’t vote for Romney please stop the logic is fatal.
So if you would find a better argument that would be great.
