We are all hearing that we must support the president because of his overwhelming popularity. Well let's look at the numbers. He won 52% to Mr McCain with 48%. That is only a 4 point victory. Now given the last few elections I can understand that 4 points is quit a margin. But put into perspective it is not. Even though the turnout rate was 64.1% or 136.6 million people, the highest since 1908. The actual number of people that voted for BHO has been adjusted up to 64 million. That represents 47% of the total number of people that voted. So 73 million people did not vote for BHO. So the majority of voters did not support him. How is that "overwhelming?"
