Newt ‘dumbfounded’ over Romney getting less votes than McCain

Newt Gingrich was one of the “expert” political pundits who came out before the election and predicted an easy victory for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Now the former Speaker of the House says he is dumbfounded on the total number of votes Romney received as compared to 2008 Republican presidential candidate John McCain.

Gingrich said on NBC’s “Today”, “The president won an extraordinary victory, and the fact is we owe him the respect of trying to understand what they did and how they did it.”

But if you had said to me three weeks ago that Mitt Romney would get fewer votes than John McCain — and it looks like he’ll be 2 million fewer — I would have been dumbfounded.”

According to the Associated Press, Romney has 58.8 million votes. McCain received 59.9 million votes in 2008.

    they aren’t done counting…Romney’s up to 59.1 million and by the time they’re finished it’ll be statistically irrelevant
