THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION- SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG. PARTS 5-8.

America, 2016, Date, Year, Flag, Red

PART 5.

There are many things that THE DISCIPLINES OF LOGIC AND CRITICAL THINKING CAN DO, THAT BENEFIT US AS INDIVIDUALS, AND SOCIETY AS A WHOLE. Unfortunately, it means, that sometimes, we have to see things as they really are, not as we want them to be.

With that in mind, "PRESIDENT ELECT" DONALD TRUMPS CONTINUING ABILITY TO PROVE THAT HE CARES VERY LITTLE ABOUT THE COUNTRY AS A WHOLE, MAY FINALLY BE LIFTING THE VEIL OF IGNORANCE FROM SOME OF THOSE WHO HAVE SUPPORTED HIM. HOWEVER, I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND MY READERS OF AN OBSERVATION I MADE A NUMBER OF MONTHS AGO:

"No, Hard Core Trump Supporters go far beyond the Republican Party "Revolution." To them, Hate, Prejudice, Xenophobia, Racism,and Religious Zealotry are not Abstract Concepts to be studied, but Tangible and Useful Tactics to Influence Fanatics of every Stripe, and scare more Rational Potential Voters."

"What is Rule #1- What Donald Trump has Done or Said, or will Do or Say, MEANS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING AS LONG AS HE TOES THE EXTREMIST LINE."


FROM THE FEATURE ARTICLE:  "MESSAGE TO ALL PROGRESSIVES: DON'T YOU SEE IT, EVEN NOW? PART 2."



Now we have the INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY TELLING CONGRESS, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, THAT THERE IS STRONG EVIDENCE THAT RUSSIA HAS HACKED INTO THIS COUNTRIES COMPUTER SYSTEM, AND LEAKED INFORMATION THAT BENEFITED THE REPUBLICAN PARTY DURING THE LAST ELECTION.

Yes, DONALD TRUMP IGNORES THIS POSSIBILITY, AND RIDICULES THE INTELLIGENCE COMMUNITY FOR EVEN CONSIDERING IT.  However, This Obvious "CONFLICT OF INTEREST," make his Assertions of Dubious Quality, together with the fact that he offers no reasonable answers to refute the evidence being offered to Congress.

HOWEVER, IT COULD GET MUCH WORSE, AND HERE'S WHY:

WHAT IF THE ELECTION RESULTS WERE TAMPERED WITH?

Consider the following;

AS TRUMP SUPPORTERS ASSERT, HE DID GET MORE THAN +2,000,000 VOTES THAN
ROMNEY DID IN 2012.

YES HE DID, BUT WHERE WAS THAT INCREASE FROM? AS I HAVE ALREADY POINTED OUT IN AN EARLIER POST, THERE WERE ALMOST 8 MILLION MORE VOTES CAST FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016 THAN THERE WERE IN 2012.  That is hardly a ringing endorsement, and is one of the reasons his % of the vote was smaller than ROMNEYS.

HERE IS A FIGURE YOU CAN CONTEMPLATE AS A LEAD IN TO PART 6:

THE REPUBLICAN TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES FROM 2012-2016 INCREASED. +2,046,375

MORE THAN HALF OF THAT INCREASE CAME FROM ONLY 4 STATES.


CARE TO GUESS WHICH ONES?

MICHIGAN. +164,287.

PENNSYLVANIA.  +290,299.

OHIO.  +179,568.

FLORIDA.  +454,439.

TOTAL: 1,088,593.

STAY TUNED...





PART 6.

Presidential Election, Usa, Politics 
(BELOW REPRINTED FROM PART 5.)

THE REPUBLICAN TOTAL NUMBER OF VOTES FROM 2012-2016 INCREASED +2,046,375.

MORE THAN HALF OF THAT INCREASE CAME FROM ONLY 4 STATES.

CARE TO GUESS WHICH ONES?

MICHIGAN. +164,287.

PENNSYLVANIA.  +290,299.

OHIO.  +179,568.

FLORIDA.  +454,439.

TOTAL: 1,088,593.
***************************************************************************************************************

To help put this in proper perspective, consider the following:

THE REPUBLICAN PARTY INCREASED THEIR NATIONAL VOTE COUNT BY +2,046,375. 
(2012- 2016).

THE ABOVE 4 STATES ACCOUNT FOR +1,088,593 OF THIS INCREASE.(53.2%)

THAT MEANS THAT THE REMAINING 46 STATES WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR 
THE OTHER 957,782 VOTES. (46.8%).

MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA, OHIO, FLORIDA had a combined increase in REPUBLICAN
VOTES SO LARGE, THAT IT SURPASSED ALL OTHER STATES ADDED TOGETHER.

However, sometimes huge gains in NUMBERS OF VOTES WASN'T ENOUGH TO CLINCH A VICTORY. THAT, AND THE POSSIBILITY THAT SOMEONE MIGHT REALIZE THAT RUSSIAS HACKING, AND RELEASE OF DATA DETRIMENTAL TO HILLARY CLINTON, COULD NEVER BE QUANTIFIED INTO HOW MANY VOTES WOULD BE EITHER GAINED OR LOST. THIS MAY HAVE LED TO POSSIBLE VARIATIONS IN HOW THE FINAL VOTE COUNT COULD BE MANIPULATED.

(Which leads to the following: WHY IS THERE AN ASSUMPTION THAT RUSSIA, AND ONLY RUSSIA, COULD BE GUILTY OF TAMPERING WITH THE ELECTION RESULTS. THE RUSSIANS HACKING INTO COMPUTER FILES TO GATHER INFORMATION TO BE USED AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON IS A SEPARATE ISSUE FROM INTENTIONALLY ALTERING BALLOT COUNTS).

FOR THIS EXAMPLE, LET US BRING ANOTHER ONE OF THE 6 STATES THAT CHANGED SUPPORT FROM DEMOCRAT TO REPUBLICAN FOR THE 2016 ELECTION.

WISCONSIN.

In 2016 Wisconsin the REPUBLICAN PARTY WON THE STATE BY A VOTE OF:
1,405,284- 1,382,586. Another narrow victory.

Oddly enough, they did this while accumulating LESS VOTES THAN IT HAD IN 2012.
THE REDUCTION WAS ONLY -2682, BUT IT WAS A REDUCTION. I GUESS
WISCONSIN REPUBLICANS SAW NO GREAT NEED TO TURN OUT THE VOTE.

Well, they were right. THE DEMOCRATS, WHO HAD BEATEN THE REPUBLICANS
BY ABOUT 7% OF THE VOTE IN 2012, LOST NEARLY A QUARTER OF A MILLION
VOTES IN 2016. (-238,449.).

INTERESTING.








PART 7.

IT IS THIS BAD...

Before I continue with an Analysis of the 2016 Presidential Election, I would like to point out a couple of things:

-  All the Statistics and Numbers I use in this SERIES OF POSTS ARE AVAILABLE AND EASY TO FIND ON THE INTERNET. NUMEROUS SITES CARRY THE "OFFICIAL" ELECTION RETURNS FOR EACH STATE, AND THE U.S AS A WHOLE. IF YOU DISAGREE WITH THE FIGURES, AT LEAST HAVE THE INTELLECTUAL HONESTY TO BACK IT WITH FACTUAL DATA. IT CAN BE AS EASY AS GOING ON WIKIPEDIA, AND ENTERING "2016" OR "2012" ELECTION. However, if you don't want to use WIKIPEDIA, I'm sure your News Outlet of Choice will contain all the information you need.

-  The RUSSIAN CONNECTION TO THIS ELECTION, WHILE DISTURBING, IS NOT THE REAL STORY.  AS I SAID IN THE LAST POST,YOU CANNOT "QUANTIFY" THE AMOUNT OR NUMBER OF VOTES THAT WERE GAINED OR LOST BY THE RUSSIAN GOVERNMENT LEAKING INFORMATION DETRIMENTAL TO HILLARY CLINTON.

EVEN IF THIS INTERFERENCE WENT AS FAR AS HACKING INTO SYSTEMS TO ALTER
VOTER RETURNS, IT LEAVES ONE MORE IMPORTANT FACTOR TO CONSIDER:

IT WAS NOT RUSSIAN POLITICIANS WHO CERTIFIED, AND SIGNED OFF ON THE "OFFICIAL NUMBERS." IT WAS AMERICAN ELECTION OFFICIALS WHO DID THAT. AS IMPROBABLE AS THESE TOTALS SEEM TO BE IN SOME CASES, NO ONE CONTESTED THEM.  

THAT IS THE REAL STORY.

I'll leave you with another example:


PENNSYLVANIA- 2012 ELECTION. TOTAL # OF DEMOCRAT\REPUBLICAN VOTES: 5,670,708.

TOTAL DEMOCRATIC VOTES- 2,990,274.

TOTAL REPUBLICAN VOTES- 2,680,434.

MARGIN OF DEMOCRATIC VICTORY- 309,840 VOTES.

PENNSYLVANIA- 2016 ELECTION.  TOTAL # OF DEMOCRATIC/REPUBLICAN VOTES: 5,897,174.  UP +226,466 VOTES FROM 2012 ELECTION.

TOTAL DEMOCRATIC VOTES- 2,926,441 VOTES, LOSS OF 63,833 VOTES FROM 2012 ELECTION.

TOTAL REPUBLICAN VOTES-  2,970,733 VOTES, GAIN OF +290,299 VOTES.


HERE IS A BREAKDOWN:

The TOTAL # OF  DEMOCRAT/REPUBLICAN VOTES INCREASED +226,466 votes from
2012-2016.

THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY LOST 63,833 VOTES BETWEEN 2012 AND 2016, OR ABOUT -2.1%. In itself, that's 
not a drastic decline. It would be considered a result that is well within normal expectations.

HOWEVER, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NUMBERS ARE ANOTHER MATTER. AN INCREASE OF +290,299 VOTES REPRESENTS ABOUT AN + 10.8% INCREASE. 
This number, (+290,299), is more than 4 times the number 
of votes that the Democrats lost.

TO ACHIEVE THE TOTAL OF 2,970,733 VOTES IN 2016, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY NEEDED A SCENARIO LIKE THE FOLLOWING TO HAPPEN:

EVERY SINGLE VOTER WHO CAST A BALLOT FOR THE REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE IN 2012, HAD TO DO SO AGAIN IN 2016: 2,680,434 VOTES.

EVERY NEW VOTER WHO CAST A BALLOT FOR EITHER THE DEMOCRAT OR REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, HAD TO CHOOSE REPUBLICAN: +226,466 VOTES.

THAT TOTAL= 2,906,900 IS STILL SHORT OF THE "OFFICIAL" TOTAL OF 2,970,733 VOTES.

HOW COULD THIS BE? THE REPUBLICANS WERE STILL 63,833 VOTES SHORT OF THE FINAL NUMBER. WELL, GO BACK A FEW PARAGRAPHS AND CHECK OUT THE NUMBER OF VOTES THE DEMOCRATS LOST FROM 2012-2016= -63,833.

TO ACHIEVE A TOTAL OF 2,970,733 VOTES IN 2016, HERE IS RUNDOWN OF WHAT THE REPUBLICANS NEEDED TO HAPPEN:

EVERY REPUBLICAN VOTER FROM 2012, RETURNS AND VOTES REPUBLICAN AGAIN IN 2016: 2,680,434.

EVERY NEW VOTER WHO SELECTS EITHER DEM.\REP. IN 2016, CHOOSES REP.: 226,466.

EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THE 63,833 VOTERS THE DEM. PARTY LOST BETWEEN 2012- 2016, RETURNS TO THE POLLS AND VOTES REPUBLICAN.

2,680,434 + 226,466 + 63,833 = 2,970,733.

THIS IS LUDICROUS. NO REASONABLE INDIVIDUAL WHO
LOOKS AT THESE NUMBERS COULD TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY. 

TO ALL DEMOCRATS, PROGRESSIVES, AND FRIENDS AND ALLIES OF THE U.S. ACROSS THE GLOBE: THIS ELECTION WAS A SHAM. 

DON'T BELIEVE ME? PLEASE CHECK THE RESULTS YOURSELF. DON'T TAKE MY WORD, GO OVER THEM CAREFULLY. 

ANY DEMOCRATIC LEADER WHO SAW THESE RESULTS, AND DIDN'T QUESTION THEM, IS AS GUILTY AS ANY REPUBLICAN WHO MAY HAVE SET THIS SCAM INTO MOTION. 

ANY DEMOCRATIC LEADER...

I HAVE BROKEN DOWN ONLY 2 STATES, WISCONSIN, AND PENNSYLVANIA. STAY TUNED....




PART 8.

HERE IS THE % BREAKDOWN FOR THE                                     
24 STATES THAT VOTED REPUBLICAN                                        
IN 2012 AND 2016.

THE HIGHER FIGURE IS FROM 2012.                                             

IF IT IS TRUMP, THE HIGHER FIGURE IS                                      

FROM 2016.

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.



THE BIGGEST INCREASE FROM 2012- 2016.
WEST VIRGINIA- +6.33%.

THE BIGGEST DECREASE- IDAHO -5.27%


NOW, HERE ARE THE 6 STATES THAT VOTED DEMOCRAT IN 2012, BUT REPUBLICAN
IN 2016.

KEEP IN MIND, THESE TOTALS REVEAL NOTHING ABOUT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTIES RESULTS FOR THE TWO ELECTIONS.



CHANGES IN REPUBLICAN SUPPORT FROM 2012-2016.

                       2012 RESULTS.            2016 RESULTS.                    NUMBER/ %

FLORIDA.       4,163,447                       4,617,886                           +454,439/ +10.9%

IOWA.              730,617                          800,983                              +70,366/ +9.6%

MICHIGAN.    2,115,256                        2,279,543                           +164,287/ +7.8%

OHIO.             2,661,437                         2,841,005                           +179,568/ +6.7%

PENN.             2,680,434.                        2,970,733                          +290,299/+10.8%

WISCONSIN.  1,407,966                         1,405,284                          -2682/-.02%


AS YOU CAN SEE, 5 OF THE STATES HAD % INCREASES LARGER THAN ANY OF THE
24 STATES WHO VOTED REPUBLICAN IN BOTH ELECTIONS. REMEMBER, THESE WERE
STATES THAT WENT DEMOCRAT 4 YEARS EARLIER.

KEEP IN MIND THAT MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA HAD VOTED DEMOCRAT SINCE 1992.

WHAT ABOUT WISCONSIN? STAY TUNED...
