  • Hillary Clinton joins Electoral College 4 years after it cost her the presidency

    Hillary Clinton won the popular vote but lost the 2016 presidential election because of the Electoral College. This year, she is slated to be a participant in that system. This year, Clinton is listed by New York State Board of Elections as one of 29 Democratic electors for the state. If Joe Biden wins the popular vote in New York, Clinton and the 28 other electors will vote for him to be the next president.

  • Trump's paths (plural!) to 270 electoral votes and victory

    I recently argued that the toss-up states may be different from what media and pollsters present and what you think. Based my view from the 2016 results, I have the race at 231 electoral votes for President Trump, 183 electoral votes for Mr. Biden, and 124 electoral votes as toss-ups.   This implies that there are several paths to 270 electoral votes for a Trump victory. The Blue Wall Falls Again If, as in the last time, President Trump sweeps Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, he will have 277 electoral votes.  This is without Trump carrying Florida or blue wall holdout Minnesota.  In fact,...

    The answer should be obvious: you shouldn’t. Not in a million years. I know people who are still trying to decide whether or not to vote for Democrats in this election. As shocking as that might seem, it’s true. And as with any important decision that must be made, an important question to answer before deciding to do it is “Why?” While I know some people simply vote for personalities, let’s assume for sake of argument that some undecided voters are actually thinking people who want to wrestle with what is at stake in this election for them, their families,...

Here are the biggest cases coming up after Barrett’s likely confirmation: 2020 Election: (mail-in voting deadlines in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina; dozens of voting rights lawsuits are still playing out in lower courts, and any post-election disputes that arise) Voting Rights: (ballot harvesting) LGBTQ/Religious Discrimination: (religious exemption) Health Care: (whether the Affordable Care Act should be struck down).

    Former Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis says his party must do everything in its power to abolish the Electoral College. “Hillary won this election, and when all the votes are all counted, by what will likely be more than a million votes,” he wrote of the Democratic presidential nominee in an email to Politico Sunday. ADVERTISEMENT “So how come she isn’t going to the White House in January?” the 1988 Democratic standard-bearer asked. "Because of an anachronistic Electoral College system that should have been abolished 150 years ago. “That should be at the top of the Democratic priority list while...
  • The Electoral College did more in 2016 than you might think: Without the Electoral College, it would be just three counties picking America's President!

    American Thinker ^ | 10/19/2020 | James Swofford
    As the attacks on the Electoral College continue, we can see how important the Electoral College is from the 2016 presidential election results. Many observers have noted that Clinton's margin in California was greater than her plurality nationwide. Many observers have also argued that without the Electoral College, a couple or a few large states would dominate elections. What few if any have noticed is that in 2016, the Electoral College prevented 3 out of 3,141 counties with about 5% of the electorate and population from picking the president. According to the New York Times election results, Hillary Clinton received...

    In just four weeks, voters from all corners of this bitterly divided country will cast their votes for the man who will either become or remain America's next president. Pollsters, pundits, and politicos have obsessed over the ever-shifting electoral map and how a handful of swing counties and states could decide whether President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden will be named the nation's commander in chief in what is shaping up to be the most contentious election ever. There's a head-spinning number of variables at play: the continuing coronavirus crisis, a struggling economy, a reckoning on systemic...

    American Thinker.com ^ | September 14, 2020 | Joseph MacKinnon
    Democrats plan to end the filibuster and pack the Supreme Court with radical judges. These changes would give the left license to radically transform the nation. There is, however, another threat they’ve dusted off ahead of the Nov. 3rd election that—if executed—wouldn’t just be transformative, but totally destructive. They want to abolish the Electoral College. Destroying this institution will mean the end of national campaigning (and the engagement, negotiation, and localized promises that go along with it). What politician will ever again stump in Kenosha or Breckenridge? What will a vote get you in Idaho or Montana? It will mean...
  • Why the Democrat Talking Point Nonsense About Trump Refusing to Leave Office?

    Powerline Blog ^ | 09/05/2020 | John Hinderaker
    One of the Democrats’ more lunatic themes is their insistence that if President Trump loses the election, he likely will refuse to leave office, in effect staging a coup. Most recently the claim was made by Bernie Sanders. Politico headlined: “Sanders: America must be prepared for when Trump refuses to leave office.” To some extent, this may be projection. The Democrats themselves have been staging a slow-motion coup for nearly four years, trying by hook or by crook to force our duly-elected president out of office. And they are the ones who have vowed to count and recount ballots to...

    Twitter hid another tweet from President Donald Trump behind a warning label earlier today, the latest in a string of censorship against the President that the platform has taken this year. Earlier today, President Trump tweeted that mail drop boxes are a “voter security disaster,” that allow people to vote multiple times. The president also warned that the mailboxes are not sanitized to prevent the spread of the Chinese virus.

The House vote, which came in the wake of an extraordinarily close presidential election, mirrored national sentiment about scrapping an electoral system that allowed a candidate to win the presidency even while losing the popular vote. A 1968 Gallup poll found that 80 percent of Americans believed it was time to elect the nation's highest office by direct popular...

    NBC News 12 ^ | 08.07.20 | By Graham Moomaw
    A misunderstanding of Virginia’s independent cities and counties apparently led a nonprofit voter registration group to mail 587,638 absentee ballot applications to Virginia voters that asked them to send the ballot back to the wrong election office. The Center for Voter Information said the mishap was an honest mistake mainly affecting voters in a handful of localities that share a name: including Fairfax City and Fairfax County, Richmond City and Richmond County, Roanoke City and Roanoke County, and Franklin City and Franklin County.... The mass mailing, which involved more than 2.2 million pre-filled absentee ballot applications statewide, sowed confusion for...

    A few days after the 2016 election, at an internal meeting later leaked to Breitbart News, top Google executives, including Sundar Pichai, Sergey Brin, and Kent Walker, lamented President Trump’s victory, comparing Trump voters to “extremists” and discussing their desire to make Trump’s election and the populist movement a “blip” in history. True to their word, four years later, Google is deliberately working to interfere with the reelection of Trump in 2020. There are several ways in which Google is interfering in the 2020 election, but this article will focus primarily on one of them: political search bias. Google Has...

    <p>CBS News decided to test the system upon which the government will entrust the sanctity of the ballot this November. And the U.S. Postal Service flubbed it.</p> <p>This is not about gaming the system, or voter fraud, or stuffing the mail with fake ballots from illegal aliens. This is about the competency of the USPS to deliver official ballots sent through the mail on time, and to the right people. They proved that the 100 million or more Americans who plan to mail in their ballots should not expect their vote to be counted unless they mail it weeks prior to the election deadlines in each state.</p>

    Redistricting occurs at both the state level for state legislature seats and the federal level for U.S. House districts, known as congressional apportionment. The order would affect the latter. Trump's memorandum, sent out by the White House Press Office on Tuesday, reads, "I have accordingly determined that respect for the law and protection of the integrity of the democratic process warrant the exclusion of illegal aliens from the apportionment base, to the extent feasible and to the maximum extent of the President's discretion under the law."...... The president signed the order on Tuesday at 1:10 p.m. ET in the Oval...

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.
