If it Were Up to Whitehall, Mitt Romney Would Be President

But Baldwin Borough and Baldwin Township supported Barack Obama.

Democrat Barack Obama won the national vote on Tuesday, and he won in Pennsylvania.

But, if Whitehall Borough alone decided the presidency of the United States, Republican Mitt Romney would be the winner.

According to unofficial results from the Allegheny County Division of Elections, Romney gained 130 more votes in Whitehall than President Obama did.

Fifty-two people in Whitehall voted for Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party, 16 voted for Jill Stein of the Green Party, and 17 wrote another name in.

The results in Baldwin Borough and Baldwin Township, however, were in Obama's favor.

View the table below to see how each municipality within the Baldwin-Whitehall School District voted.

Barack Obama (D) Mitt Romney (R) Gary Johnson (L) Jill Stein (G) Write-in Baldwin Borough 5,144 (53.9%) 4,248 (44.5%) 86 (<1%) 35 (<1%) 35 (<1%) Whitehall Borough 3,615 (48.6%) 3,745 (50.3%) 52 (<1%) 16 (<1%) 17 (<1%) Baldwin Township 633 (54.9%) 502 (43.6%) 8 (<1%) 7 (<1%) 2 (<1%)

Thank you AGAIN,for showing your level of intelligence,or lack thereof. You are such a small ,mean person that you can't even be happy your little Communist bought,bribed and smeared his way into another four years. I,along with other sane people,see this as a tie. You're p-o'ed that half this country saw through this vicious,racist community organizer . Oh, that's right-you like to make things up,lie,twist things as you go along,just like YOUR president. Congratulations-if anyone deserves Barack Obama, it's you.

It's going to go one of two ways. 1) Obama will be so concerned with his "legacy" that he might consider compromising. (Say a prayer this is the case), or 2) He will go harder left. In this case our country will be forever diminished. (Again, say a prayer...)
bonita veraldi November 09, 2012 at 10:51 PM
My opinion is that it will be the latter. This man is such a far left,messianic,narcissist idealogue, he truly feels his legacy will be the greatest ever. He has already said he has "...a gift." He has inferred he is the equal of Abraham Lincoln. People ,especially the airheads who voted for him, don't realize what the rest of us have known all along,they don't care.Their greed over rode any shred of common sense they may or may not have and he's just been elected to DESTROY the greatest country in the world .

bonita says I,along with other sane people,see this as a tie. ````````````````` YOU, and what other people see a 3 million vote difference as a tie? Must be Goofy GOP Math.
NE12Ukid November 10, 2012 at 04:04 AM
If the GOP members who vowed to block anything Obama proposed will now honor their commitment to the country, and compromise, just about any problem can be worked out.

The Residence of South Hills and Whitehall Place hasn't taken Section 8 in over a year but your still blaming these two places as why property values are down. Go look at the School District and their rating for teaching our children. The flopped on making a Video to get people to move to the district. Baldwin Borough might of lost property value but it is still up in Whitehall and Baldwin Township.

Paula seem that it is only the democrats and you that have to bring up race, sexual orientation, etc. You and the rest of the democrats are so clueless and brainwashed as you can't think on your own. In all articles that I have read on the election it is you democrats that do the name calling and shame on you.
jwk November 10, 2012 at 01:45 PM
I agree that there has to be some compromise on both sides. I'm not optimistic though.
LeonA November 10, 2012 at 02:03 PM
Welcome new name, new poster.
LeonA November 10, 2012 at 02:05 PM
I also would like to see that compromise, jwk. I'm wary at this point. We shall see.

Lmao.... The comment above about how US is a republic and not a democracy is such a misconstrued and simply...a wrong statement. I had this conversation w some republican folks in my office and I had to reeducate them on this. Also -FYI don't bother googling it and try to explain why this statement is right because the first hundred searches are all biased viewpoints....all one needs to do I look at the history and evolution of both words. The truth and the fact is that US is both a republic ("democratic republic") as a form of government and a democracy ("representative democracy or liberal democracy") as a system of government. In its original definition, republic only means "non monarch" and democracy only means "government by the people". Many republicans are mistaken in the meanings of both words and is understandably so. Only after two Supreme Court hearings in the late 1800s did the word "republic" as used in the context of the Constitution include "equal rights of citizens" and "right of the people to choose their government" in the definition. Democracy has been a loosely used word through your history first used to define "pure democracy" or "direct democracy" in the 1600 to late 1700s, and more commonly used to describe "liberal democracy" or "representative democracy in 1800s to present day times". So the correct answer is that we are both a republic and a democracy.... Don't let crazy fools believe you otherwise!!!

Typical Democrat--"...I had to re-educate them on this....." The Left and their arrogance.....This country is a REPUBLIC-always has been, but don't know how much longer it will be under the Socialist-In-Chief. It's also correct to call it a democracy, because it is, in part, but it is first and foremost a Republic.

The Senate,headed by Harry Shady Land Deals' Reid, refuses to pass a budget- going on four years now. He said if Romney won, the idea of the Senate working with him,was "laughable ". When both parties met at Blair House in B.O. 's first year, his response to Ryan's question on compromising was- " I won ". Your propaganda does'nt pass the smell test, NUKID

bonita - I agree with you they are so clueless.
bonita veraldi November 12, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Well,cc-Obama got what he wanted-the moron vote. And we,among the other half of this great country, will just have to stand together to defend it against this community organizer and his gang of thugs. Hang in there, patriot. To the other half of you-Lenin was right-, you ARE "useful idiots".
Brian Rampolla November 12, 2012 at 08:18 PM
Get over it bonita. The better candidate, with the better organization, with the better message, with a better understanding of the changing demographics won. I educated myself every bit as much as you and I made my choice just like you. But unlike you I don't have to resort to name calling to make myself feel better.
NE12Ukid November 12, 2012 at 09:29 PM
you're very welcome, Nancy Robinson.
bonita veraldi November 12, 2012 at 09:30 PM
Let me guess- you're a life long Democrat who probably cried when B.O. won in '08,sneered at the Right,seeing nothing wrong with calling them the sexually disgusting 'teabagger'. Then, you whined when the Right won in '10 and called for 'civility',while continuing to call the Right racists,unAmerican,homophobes,the list goes on......... Now, [did you cry again ?] you on the Left,AGAIN,voted in this Statist who has singlehandedly spent more than all former Presidents combined,has forced more people onto unemployment and food stamps, closed America's energy producers down-let five Americans be killed because he refused to protect them. BUT, because he does MTV,PIMP WITH A LIMP radio show, panders to illegals,gays,blacks,women, [ tell me, what he did for all those groups for the last FOUR years ? I'm waiting.......still waiting...... ] that was more important to you 'useful idiots' than keeping this great country going -to protecting our energy-to making a better future for our children and grandchildren. Don't like name calling? Get used to it, hypocrite
NE12Ukid November 12, 2012 at 09:32 PM
Seems both bonita and her shadow cc get their jollies calling anyone who disagrees with them "moron". Brian, I'd bet their constant name calling doesn't even make them feel better, they're always whining about everything. Seems NOTHING makes these two happy. Wonder if they heard Newt Gingrich today, saying pretty much what you said, Brian, about better candidate, with the better organization, with the better message, with a better understanding of the changing demographics .
bonita veraldi November 12, 2012 at 09:41 PM
Well,well, it climbs out from under the rock. Now it quotes Gingrich -delicious. Is'nt this the same Gingrich who cheated on two wives,had to resign amid abuse allegations,cost the Republicans control of the House,ran up a million dollar Tiffany debt,and was a loser in the primaries ? EXACTLY the reason the Left likes him-they're mirror images. This is TOO easy.
Brian Rampolla November 12, 2012 at 10:21 PM
I’m speechless bonita. You’re arguments are overwhelming and I realize now I have been sorely misled. Mom and Dad, if you’re reading this how could you have led me so astray? You told me one of my primary responsibilities as a US citizen was to research issues and make defensible arguments based on fact in a respectful manner, and now I’ve gone and told my kids the same thing! The truth I now see is that reason, logic, and respect have no place in US political arguments anymore. Our founding fathers, who based our whole form of government on these ideas taken from the ancient Greeks, pulled the wool over our eyes. Thank God for 21st sages such as you bonita who have enlightened us to the truth that he who can cram the most names, labels, and absurd statements into one paragraph wins. I concede!
bonita veraldi November 12, 2012 at 10:38 PM
You want to have a sarcasm duel now ? You'll lose THAT one, also. You tell me to "GET OVER IT" and when I expose you for the Obama- ite you are,you whine. Because I call you out,my statements are 'absurd'? Spoken like a typical arrogant Democrat, When I find someone that uses "reason, logic, and respect", I'll converse, because it's not you. Because,you see, what you and the rest of the American Idol,Saturday Night Live, The View ,MTV,etc.,Liberal drones don't even realize,is that your decision to play Socialism games because you consider your CommunityOrganizer- In- Chief to be SO cool, our children and grandchildren will not have this great country. Maybe you think that's okay for your children, I'll be damned if I'll let that happen to mine.
NE12Ukid November 13, 2012 at 12:08 AM
I see that you AGAIN jump right on name calling and badmouthing anyone mentioned while completely missing the MESSAGE. One thing you are, bonita, is consistent, HAHAHA!!!
bonita veraldi November 13, 2012 at 01:55 AM
Nukid- And I see AGAIN,the hypocrisy and arrogance of the Left in their divisive thinking that they are the only ones permitted to name-call,to claim the info put forth by the Right can't be facts because it does'nt follow THEIR Leftist mindset. So,if you honestly think that the Right is going to continue to take this double standard crap from B.O. idealogues,especially examples like you with the moronic post name and the bizarre HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA,- Let the games begin.
