Because ACORN!

You have to hand it to ACORN. Even though the organization dissolved several years ago, they're still somehow managing to steal elections.

49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.

Some GOP voters are so unhappy with the outcome that they no longer care to be a part of the United States. 25% of Republicans say they would like their state to secede from the union compared to 56% who want to stay and 19% who aren't sure.

ACORN filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and closed its doors shortly after.

    In the minds of right wingers ACORN was always just a code for black people…Anytime the Democratic Party and its affiliates successfully register and turn out the minority vote….it means the election has been “stolen”

    See how powerful ACORN is? It doesn’t exist any more and it can still steal elections!

      Well you know what they say. The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist. And, you know, ACORN isTHE DEVIL!!!!!

    Asking a republican to comprehend that they lost the election is like trying to upload an Android app to an iPad. The operating system just can’t recognize it. They need some excuse to explain it, whether it’s ACORN or Obama giving away “gifts” to the “takers”.

    It certainly can’t be because their ideas were rejected by the voters. After all, everyone on Fox agrees with them.

      With some of these republicans, it might be more like them trying to fit a 78rpm Victrola record into a CD player, but I’m with ya’!

    Wow, the 2012 results were ANYTHING but American voters rejecting the constant demands to sacrifice and lower their standard of living/expectations so the rich could get richer with less obligation to the rest of the country.
