We only ask that you to refrain from using obscenities, posting false information or making personal attacks (name-calling) on other commenters.


Editor’s Note: Some commenters have referenced an excellent article in Monday’s edition of the Antelope Valley Press, which highlighted the election results by city and unincorporated areas in the Antelope Valley. Others, who did not get a chance to read the AVP article, have contacted us and asked if we were able to provide a similar election breakdown.

We did not plan to cover this story, but we hate to leave our readers hanging. Below is a breakdown of election results for each city and unincorporated area available (listed by population) for the Antelope Valley, as reported by the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s Office. These results do not include the provisional ballots . Enjoy!

    Remember how Romney whined recently about the ‘gifts’ that President Obama promised his base. Here is an anonymous comment I found that clearly exposes the lie is that Mitt Romney.

    “Romney didn’t lose because of the low income bracket. This bracket always votes for Democrats…this is nothing new. Take a look at the previous exit polls and you’ll see that this is the norm. In fact, the percentage decreased this election.

    The Republicans have lost the popular vote in 5 out of the last 6 elections because they have alienated so many groups of people…Women, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Singles, Youth, etc.

    Just think about for a second. Bush almost won half of the Hispanic vote. They were voting for Bush regardless of their financial situation. Even though Democrats were offering so called gifts back then, they still voted for Bush in huge numbers. However, since that time, Republicans have alienated them and demonized Hispanics with standard and irregular fear-mongering tactics over the last 6 years. Their income hasn’t changed one bit but their attitude towards the Republican Party has drastically changed because of the alienating that has taken place during this time. In 8 years, the Hispanic vote for Democrats went from 53% all the way to 71%.

    As with Asians, who have the highest median income of any race, have had a change of heart as well. Again, this has nothing to do with their financial situation. After these last 6 years of fear-mongering of Chinese, immigrants, etc, their attitude towards the Republican Party has drastically changed. In 8 years, the Asian vote went from 56% all the way to 73%.”

    Yes, right wingers, Asians are hard-working Americans who go about it quietly and not like you cons who brag about your patriotism and hard work while you sign succession petitions and whine about your taxes. Asians pay lots of taxes and, yet, they mostly voted for President Obama.

    I realize that the analysis in the quotes above may be too complex if you are a republican, so I suggest you get a smart person to explain it to you. Any liberal will do.

    What else ya got to whine about now?

        Quigley, yo are correct. With Prop 30 approved, a member of the democrap party (whose name eludes me a this moment) came out and said that now that they had a super majority, its time to raise taxes. He’s the one that is behind raising auto fees.

        More and more people will leave the state. How does this make sense?

        Yet, they were elected. I look at Nancy Pelosi and just wonder how people can be so stupid as to keep putting her in office as well as giving the deocraps a super majority.

            If Californians had allowed DMV rates to go up back when Davis was in office, and elected the Republicans darling Arnold Swartzenegger who trashed our economy by not paying for anything – gee, we wouldn’t be in this mess, would we? Either we pay for it back then – or now. No $$ coming in doesn’t pay the bills.

            For those who want to leave, please do. They’ll find it isn’t any cheaper anywhere else, unless they want to live on welfare in Alabama, where there’s no representation, but lots of free tax money from the blue states.

            Forward. I’ve thought the same thing about the DMV rate increases. We would have been paying gradually all along instead of the mess we have now.

            Plus, it probably would have encouraged more car pooling and mass transit use as the cost of driving a car more reflected it true costs on the state.

            “Has the GOP and its base ever not been short-sighted?”

            They still don’t get it – which is fine I guess, but not so good for them if they ever want to win an election again.

            They’re totally oblivious to the fact that the majority of Americans have been taking a ‘CUT’ for years in income and opportunity, considering 1% of the population owns 60% of the wealth right now – primarily by raking in all the profits with unfair tax policies. The trickle never happened – was quite the opposite, matter of fact.

            The logic behind the reasons why they cannot afford increases at this time is incomprehensive to some – fortunately they’re in the minority.

    Good morning boys and girls. Our word of the day is: Sequestration.
    What is it and what effect will it have on the economy?
    Well a report from the House Appropriations Committee details the consequences of sequestration:
    9.1% unemployment rate.
    1.4 million jobs lost.
    900,000 participants dropped from the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Supplemental Nutrition Program.
    An end to child care for 80,000 low-income children.
    200,000 fewer participants in Section 8 housing, resulting in evictions.
    100,000 fewer people served by Homeless Assistance Grants, putting them on the streets.
    As many as 1,000,000 fewer patients served in community health centers.
    As many as 45,000 fewer breast and cervical cancer screenings for low-income women.
    100,000 fewer children nationwide enrolled in Head Start.
    20,000 fewer Head Start employees.
    12,000 fewer special education teachers and aides because of a reduction in special-ed grants. This would affect more than 500,000 students with special needs.
    16,000 fewer teachers and aides nationwide because of a reduction in Title I grants.
    4,300 fewer at-risk youth in the Job Corps education and skills training program.

    Now, the nuts who didn’t like President Obama have signed petitions to secede from the union.

    “Most of the red states — now the hypothetical “New Confederacy” — had heretofore taken more federal aid than they paid back in federal taxes. South Carolina, for example, takes $1.35 in federal money for every dollar it pays in federal taxes. Louisiana takes $1.78 for every dollar it pays into the system. Talk about moochers and freeloaders. By the way, this money is redistributed from other states, including the blue states with their abortion-on-demand and evil healthcare mandate. After secession, that gravy train would cease to exist. Farmers, corporations, small businesses, universities and law enforcement would crumble without federal aid — grants, contracts, matching funds, tax breaks, etc.”

    Thanks for posting the election stats. Looks like McKeon and Smith both lost in Lancaster & Palmdale, but raked in the votes in surrounding areas such as QH/Leona Valley, and Aqua Dulce/Acton.

    RE: National stats:

    “…The maps we have made show that the election was not just about red and blue states. What’s actually going on is that the division between red and blue America is mostly about a split among richer voters.”

    With the economic crash of ’08, both Lancaster & Palmdale trended towards more rentals than homeowners, whereas the surrounding areas have remained the same. A median-income study of both cities would be helpful, as it would most likely parallel national stats from the website above.

      Star Moffat only won because a bunch of “low information” voters saw “Democrat” next to her name and checked it. I am a Democrat and I did not vote for her and I can only hope that she never has the gall to run again because she is a complete embarrassment to the Democratic Party!

        You said: “Star Moffat only won because a bunch of low information voters saw Democrat next to her name and checked it…”

        And you know this because?????

        Just because YOU did not vote for Star, you are arrogant and ignorant enough to ASSume that people who did vote for Star are “low information” voters?

        Your gall is the one that is unmitigated!!!

        Congratulations to Star Moffatt on the hard work that won her the MAJORITY of votes in Palmdale, despite what ONE LONE voter thinks!

          “one lone voter”?????

          who are you kidding buddy?

          Star should have had the same amount of votes against Knight as Steve Fox did against Ron Smith! She didnt because she and her husband managed to piss off lots of Democrats in the AV and Santa Clarita areas with their disrespectful attitudes.

          ah c’mom Letlow….those voters thought they were voting for “best 70’s beat to $hit motorhome wrapped in campaign crap”, not for Starr Moffat herself!

            Oh Gladys, what are you whining about now? What name are you referring to?? I don’t see any of the usual words that piss you folks off, so clue us in, what word is bugging you so much this time?

            Thank you AV Times for removing the offensive screen name. NachoMama, what folks are you talking about when you say “you folks”?

        Is this more of the Democratic party infighting over who’s aligned with the Maxine Waters political machine or the Tony Villar Democrat machines?

          My money’s on the “Tony Villaragosa machine”. It’s a lot more diverse, inclusive, realistic and forward-thinking (and less paranoid) than the “Maxine Waters machine”!
