Skip to comments.Trump's Truckin' Base

Electoral prognosticators failed miserably last November. The smart set in the media establishment predicted a landslide win for Hillary Clinton. For an amusing review, here is a video montage of their smug certainty. On what did they base their certainty? Bogus polls oversampling Democrat voters? Or projection of their wishes and fantasies that Donald Trump would be smacked down in big league fashion? We all know how that turned out.
Just as the old quote predicted, Wish in one hand, crap in the other, and see which fills up first. Obviously political pundits needed more than their wishes to avoid looking like fools holding a handful of electoral poop after their predictions were turned upside down on November 8.
Heres an idea that might help future electoral soothsaying. A recent USA Today article discussed the most popular cars and trucks in each of the 50 states. The map looked surprisingly like the 2016 electoral map. The top vehicles sold in each state in 2016, based on new car registrations, was compiled.
There was a mix of sedans, small SUVs and pickup trucks. The trucks included the Ford F-150, Toyota Tacoma, GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Looking at the electoral map and vehicle map its clear that red states, won by Donald Trump, were predominantly pickup truck states whereas the blue states, won by Hillary Clinton, were mostly sedans or small SUVs.
The four western blue states of Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada were not truck states, instead favoring Honda Civic, Subaru Outback or Toyota RAV4. Most of New England, also electorally blue, has drivers choosing the Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

Wow, that’s crazy. Something we sensed and now have the map to prove it.
Hillary, if Trump wins will you accept it?
Democrats, if Trump wins will you accept it?
MSM, if Trump wins will you accept it?
Laughing my ass off... evidently NOT!
“...The smart set in the media establishment predicted a landslide win for Hillary Clinton....”
I was very pleased to help in proving them to be the idiots that they are... and completely wrong...
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.
It's been the year of Trump for three years now and no signs of stopping now. Even people who drive Nissan Rogues (the female version of the Nissan Murano) are all in for Donald Trump.

In the town in which I live in NorCal, the Tahoes, Surburbans, Yukons, Escalades, and a few Excursions and Explorers are the most popular with the soccer moms. Our primary set of wheels is a 2013 Avalanche, which is a Suburban with a funny back end.
From what I see in my mirror; I must be a Suburban!!

Well, ok then...
I guess that settles THAT...
