As an American soldier and a proud voter I have no regrets. Obama is a good man and even though we can not expect a full pull out during his presidency the fact that he is wil…ling to start bringing us home next year means a lot. So I have no regrets nor do the family and friends that I have who also support the president. If you want more people to comment perhaps starting a discussion would be easier.

There were reports of voter fraud where fictitious and deceased voters were registered. EDIT- There are also reports of aliens landing in the deserts of new mexico. Doesn't… make it true. Many blind as well. Edit- since when are the blind not allowed to vote? Edit- Best answer available- all data available indicates that voter fraud happens at a rate of .0002%, which is statistically insignificant- or about 130 or so cases a year, nationwide. And we don't know whom they voted for. Source- Brennan Center for Justice (NYU School of Law).

It is impossible to say exactly who voted for which candidate, since voting is confidential, and all we have are exit polls. However, based on those polls, the claim by Mr. Ro…mney and his surrogates that most people who voted for President Obama were seeking "handouts" or didn't have jobs is a complete myth. The president scored well with college-educated voters, single women, and Asian-Americans, as well as Hispanic-Americans and African-Americans. He was strong with voters on both the east coast and the west coast, and received about 43-44% of the military vote. Certainly, there were unemployed people who voted for the president; but there were also unemployed people who voted for Mitt Romney, because they believed he would get the economy moving. Mr. Romney also did very well with southern voters, white males, older voters, and evangelical Christians, and he received a majority of the military vote. Thus, it seems that both candidates could claim that most of their voters were employed (or retired, after being employed).
