Well, well, well... The Romney shut-out precincts list expands from just Cleveland to now Philadelphia and Chicago

From Eric Dondero:

Here we go... To recap, a number of Cuyahoga County precincts (Cleveland) reported their final vote totals: 19,650 to 0.

That's right. Not a single vote cast for Mitt Romney. That means not a single shaky-handed old black guy made a mistake and pulled the Romney lever. Not a single young black guy rebelling against his mom who told him to vote for Obama, voted for Romney. Not a single black conservative or black moderate in all of those areas of Cleveland decided to buck the trend, and vote for Romney. Nope. It was a complete 100% shut-out.

Now we learn, it didn't just happen in Cleveland.
From NBC Chicago, "In 37 Chicago Precincts, Romney Received No Votes":

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that in 59 Philadelphia precincts, Mitt Romney did not receive a single vote. So Ward Room decided to look at the results in the president’s hometown, and see if he won as many shutouts here. The answer: no. Romney was rejected by every voter in only 37 Chicago precincts, an embarrassing result, given that segregation and Machine politics are two of our city’s most notable qualities.
Now keep in mind this was no blow-out election. This was relatively close in the popular vote, a mere 3% difference between the two nationwide.
And by all accounts, Romney actually increased his share of the black vote by 1% over McCain in '08 to roughly 6%. But still, not a single person in any of these black precincts voted for Romney.

So they say. I think it more likely they threw all of Romney's votes in the incinerator.
