Vladimir Putin wins Russian election


news.yahoo.com

MOSCOW (AP) — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin rolled to victory in Russia's presidential election on Sunday, according to exit polls cited by state television, but the vote was tainted by claims of violations, including "carousel voting" in which voters were bused around to cast several ballots.

Putin tallied 58 percent, according to a nationwide exit poll conducted by the VTsIOM polling agency. Another exit poll by the FOM opinion survey service showed Putin received 59 percent of the ballot.

I Did not see anybody else post about this so here it is, im not usually one to submit the articles, lol.

Are we really surprised about this? Prepare for Mass protesting today, because a lot of people feel the elections where rigged.

What do you think? Second place only got 18% of the vote? I guess that means Medvedev will be prime minister. Rinse and repeat.

Golly.. I'm shocked. Who saw this coming? Putin was such a Dark horse and long shot candidate after all.

At least no one in the opposition died in the process of losing. That is something to be said....

At least? Probably what kept anyone
that wanted to keep some
relevance from even thinking about
running against the guy..

Putin was driven crazy not being in power..

Although we knew he was still somewhat running
the country, not good enough..

If this is who the Russians want
then hey more power to them.

Well, he will be a leader that ushers the world into World War III. Of that, I have little doubt. Will he be protecting the world for anything at all? Yeah.... right... and the U.S. Government only goes overseas to help people. No other reason. Ask Iraqis and a host of others. We're as noble and honorable in every effort we do as Putin is. How's that for a happy thought as the final pieces fall into place here?

Puppet holding her own strings, doesnt happen everyday folks.
Truly no suprise. Then switch to prime minister and back.
But... you might think he is evil ex-KGB agent, who put effort to bring comunism to the world yaddayaddayadda. Well, think again, especially about how much support he's got among the nation.

That's about as big a suprise as Obama winning the 2012 election.

To make the story short, for all the fuss of rigged vote and mass hysteria in the west. Logically looking at the chart of candidates one can easily deduct who is going to be the winner without even having to go through elections.
1.Mikhail Prohorov is an oligarch , now how many would go vote for a super rich ? Well i surely wouldn't
2. Genadi Zuganov a Communist, neither the Russians nor the West want the communism back.
3. Vladimir Zirinovsky apart from being a clown and screaming insults to national TV, giving him power is like starting a new cold war the guy is mentally unstable.
4. Sergei Mironov a guy who doesnt look strong in will and always ranking last.
Then we have Putin, who for the past 10 years, put Russia back to its track, his achievements are beyond excellent of the mess he had to clean after 90s.

So no matter how much the west hates it and hysterically brainwashes its people to create a negative image of Putin. The result will be the same. Putin is a national hero.

Funny how our media is so quick to point out voter fraud everywhere but here.

Just about every MSM outlet I've seen mentioning this talks about possible fraud. Well, there's a lot of suspected fraud here as well, yet aside from a few stories we don't hear anything.
