I would have voted for Ron Paul. He got screwed and I get that but to attempt to cry like children and do their best to get Obie in is beyond me. It seems that they in fact did make that happen.

I had to defriend them on facebook because I couldn't handle their thought process of just F the country because that's a good idea to hightlight their point.

So the assumption is that the Ron Paul acolytes voted for Obie out of spite?

No, they voted for Ron Paul which they knew was a vote for Obama out of spite.

Ron Paul wasn't on the ballot, he ran as a Republican and didn't get the nomination.

That table is dumb, it is comparing the republican primary numbers and the presidential election numbers, two different voting events.

Ron Paul is a whack job, if anyone thinks he would have been voted into office if he had the Rep ticket you are a fool.
OB would have won by Reagan type landslide numbers.

so just blindly post a photo with some data you have no idea what it is, where it came from, or what it means?

Saying that a third party vote is actually a vote for candidate X is a non sequitur. It doesn't follow.

Why do we need political parties at all? Why not just have candidates post their position and then vote accordingly?

There's a novel idea.
