Presidential, 2016, American Flag











Now, you might might be thinking: "Well, what about the other States? I bet there were big changes elsewhere, and your just ignoring them."

Keep in mind that I have been focusing on MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA, AND WISCONSIN, BECAUSE OF THEIR IMPORTANCE IN DETERMINING VICTORY IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE.  HOWEVER, I HAVE PURPOSEFULLY AVOIDED 3 OTHER STATES; FLORIDA, IOWA, AND OHIO, JUST TO SEE IF I WOULD GET ANY REACTION. I DID'NT, SO IN A FUTURE POST THE ANALYSIS WILL INCLUDE THESE STATES, BECAUSE OF THEIR IMPORTANCE IN THE OUTCOME OF THE 2016 ELECTION.

However, there are 44 other States. How did the TRUMP "REVOLUTION" AFFECT THEM?

Well, this was suppose to be a resurgence of "CONSERVATIVE IDEALS." In fact, Donald Trump
ran on A Mix of EXTREMIST BELIEFS THAT PROMOTED MISOGYNISTIC, XENOPHOBIC, AND RACIST ATTITUDES AMONG THE GENERAL PUBLIC, OFTEN UNDER A MASK OF RELIGIOUS ZEALOTRY. HOWEVER, THESE ATTITUDES AND BELIEFS SHOULD NOT BE ASSIGNED TO EVERY INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP JUST BECAUSE THEY MAY DISAGREE WITH PROGRESSIVE/LIBERAL IDEALS. TRUMP WENT FAR BEYOND WHAT TRUE CONSERVATIVES BELIEVE.

To be fair, let us start by looking at the 24 States who voted REPUBLICAN IN 2012 AND 2016.

Now, with Traditionally Blue States like MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA, AND WISCONSIN SEEING GIGANTIC SHIFTS IN VOTER SUPPORT, RESULTING IN REPUBLICAN "VICTORIES", TRADITIONALLY RED STATES SHOULD HAVE SEEN EVEN LARGER TURNOUTS AND TRIUMPHS IN THEIR STATE ELECTIONS.

Uh, No.

In the case of the 24 States, TRUMP CARRIED A HIGHER PERCENTAGE OF THE REPUBLICAN VOTE IN 12 STATES, ROMNEY IN 11, WITH ONE STATISTICAL TIE.

This is a list of every STATE that Voted for the Republican Candidate for President in 2012 and 2016.
It is followed by which Candidate, ( ROMNEY- 2012, TRUMP- 2016), Received a higher % of the Republican Vote for that State.

ALABAMA- TRUMP: 62.08%.- 60.55%                              
ALASKA-  ROMNEY: 54.80%- 51.28%
ARIZONA- ROMNEY: 53.65%- 48.67%
ARKANSAS- TIE- 60.57%
GEORGIA- ROMNEY: 53.30%- 50.77%
IDAHO- ROMNEY: 64.53%- 59.26%
INDIANA- TRUMP: 56.82%- 54.13%
KANSAS- ROMNEY: 59.71%- 56.65%
KENTUCKY- TRUMP: 62.5%- 60.49%
LOUISIANA- TRUMP: 58.09%- 57.78%
MISSISSIPPI- TRUMP: 57.94%- 55.28%
MISSOURI- TRUMP: 56.77%- 53.76%
MONTANA- TRUMP: 56.17%- 55.35%
NEBRASKA- ROMNEY: 59.80%- 58.75%
NORTH CAROLINA- ROMNEY: 50.39%- 49.83%
NORTH DAKOTA- TRUMP: 62.96%- 58.32%
OKLAHOMA- ROMNEY: 66.77%- 65.32%
SOUTH CAROLINA- TRUMP: 54.94%- 54.56%
SOUTH DAKOTA- TRUMP: 61.53%- 57.89%
TENNESSEE- TRUMP: 60.72%- 59.48%
TEXAS- ROMNEY: 57.17%- 52.23%
UTAH- ROMNEY: 72.79%- 45.54%
WEST VIRGINIA- TRUMP: 68.63%- 62.30%
WYOMING- ROMNEY: 68.64- 67.40%

UTAHS LARGE MARGIN BETWEEN
2012- 72.79%, 2016- 45.54% COULD HAVE BEEN CAUSED
BY THE 21.54% EARNED BY EVAN MCMULLEN (IND.)
IN 2016.

In the other 23 States, the LARGEST INCREASE in percent of the vote from
2012 ----- 2016: WEST VIRGINIA: + 6.33%.

THE LARGEST DECREASE 2012-----2016: IDAHO: - 5.27%.

REMEMBER THESE ARE "RED STATES." THERE ARE NO CHANGES,
STATISTICALLY, THAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED BEYOND NORMAL
PARAMETERS. DONALD TRUMPS CANDIDACY CAUSED NO UNUSUAL
CHANGES IN THE % OF PRO-REPUBLICAN VOTERS WHO TURNED OUT
FOR THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

HMMM!
