2012 General Election Presidential Results for Merlin Miller And All Candidates

With the General Election finally over and more than 95 percent of the vote counted, here is a recap of how the top 29 Presidential candidates finished. All parties’ nominees are included. At first glance, it’s safe to say 2012 was a disappointing year for independent and third party Presidential hopefuls. But on the other hand, dozens of local, state and federal independent and third party candidates did surprisingly well.

2012 Presidential results with Florida too close to call.

The undeniably low vote totals for the below independent and opposition/third party candidates could be attributed to a number of factors. First, roughly 5% of the national popular vote is still outstanding. Second, write-in votes and provisional ballots are often not counted until days after the election, if at all. But most of all, the low vote totals are attributed to a razor-thin race for President between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney.

Obviously, the vast majority of independent voters opted to vote for one of the two establishment candidates. Whether it was a lack of viable, credible alternatives or a fear that the worse of two evils might win, is yet to be analyzed. Compared to local independent, Libertarian, Green and other candidates who received upwards of 20% in some races, those same voters apparently chose to abandon their national Presidential ticket and vote for either Barack Obama or Mitt Romney.

Below, please see the unofficial, final vote totals for the 2012 Presidential General Election. With more than 95% of the vote reported, percentages will most-likely remain the same for the final official count. But the actual vote totals may increase slightly.

NOTE: It is highly irregular that so many of the actual vote totals are the exact same. We’ll monitor the Google Election site, as well as others, and will update the above numbers accordingly. Also, as write-in ballots are eventually counted and added in, the above totals will rise slightly.

  2. [...] the response to Merlin Miller's campaign and his 12,895 vote total ( 0.01% ) across the nation ( 2012 General Election Presidential Results for Merlin Miller And All Candidates ). This past election brought me back to the clear thinking of William Pierce from over thirty [...]

    While I was watching the third party debate, I was shaking my head constantly. Then, in the closing remarks, Virgil Goode said he'd hold a memorandum against immigration, and I felt a glimmer of hope. We can not afford it, but the rich can, and pay for the politicians to support it hand-over-fist. Unfortunately, they paid hand-over-fist to stop Merlin Miller, Virgil Goode, Jill Stein, or anyone else with the least bit of sense to build our way out of this lib-cap mess.

    I would have written in Merlin Miller, but write-ins aren't allowed in my state for Pres. I did check.

    • American3P says:

      Sadly that is true. Some states simply won\’t allow write-in votes. They throw them away! Virgil Goode would have been an excellent alternative IF he was on the ballot!?

    Unfortunately Merlin didn’t receive anywhere close to 12,000 votes. Google Elections for some reason has the numbers way off. Merlin got about 2,800 votes nationally, a number which may slightly increase if they count write-ins. I think you should edit this entry to reflect the actual results.

  6. I can’t believe that out of the hundreds of thousands of paid journalists out there, not one has put in the effort to go to each of the state's vote totals and create an accurate count for all the candidates. The above post is right, Google Elections was tallying the votes and stopped the morning after the election, at least for third party/indy candidates. Obama and Romney's totals were updated a couple times in the following days, but then stopped again. Wikipedia has a more-accurate count but they only include the top 6 candidates.

    The other comment is probably right too. The write-in votes, if counted properly, may double or triple Mr. Miller’s final vote count, especially if NY is one of the states. As someone who’s been doing this for 25 years, I can't tell you how impressed I am with Merlin and A3P’s success. He tied Randall Terry, famous hero of the pro-life movement. He beat all 3 Reform Party candidates, the Socialist Party, the Socialist Workers Party, the Grassroots Party and the Prohibition Party. Those groups have been active and organized for decades, on both the right and the left. To blow them away on the first try is impressive, and as far as I'm concerned, an indicator of future success. Great job you guys. Looking forward to 2016.

    By early December, election fever will wind down and nobody will be thinking or caring about third party votes. Helps keep attention off the competition, and demeans it while it's there.

  8. Joseph says:

    The night of the election, the vote totals for Miller stopped there. It's been ten days, but if they still have 5% of the vote to count, we might expect to see his total rise dramatically once they start counting write-in votes. I don't think it'd be a stretch to conclude the 12,895 votes for Miller are 1) rounded, and 2) only accounting for the three states he was physically on the ballot, not including the 11 (iirc) states he had write-in candidacy in. I hope I'm not mistaken in thinking the write-in states, like NY, were also bigger than the states he was firmly on the ballot.

    I wrote in Miller in DE, but I don't even think the government counted it.
