|Is this reason for the low turnout?|
All things considered, anger at Washington insiders, people didn’t like Hillary Clinton, and on and on, the real reason Donald Trump won this election was the low turnout. Almost 5% less votes were cast in 2016 than 2012, and the latter was 3.7% less than 2008. The Bernie bunch let us down. The blacks let us down. And once again the Hispanics let us down. So in comes a stampeding group of Trump do willies who stumble through the process of electing…him.
A low turnout by lazy Democrats has always favored a Republican base, which at least rises to the occasion when it is important.
The outcome is that we are stuck with Donald Trump for the next four years–but maybe not says Michael Moore–as the President of the most powerful country in the world. More than scary, right? In case you are interested, this is the profile of the gang that elected your President. By “your,” think you know what I’m talking about. Here is how Allen Clifton of Forward Progressive describes the supporters for the new President-elect:
1. They’re not very well-educated
2.They have delusional visions about how wealthy they might be
3. They really don’t know a damn thing about politics
4. They’re highly misinformed about nearly everything and extremely gullible
5. They think they’re a whole lot smarter than what they actually are and tend to be extremely stubborn, if not outright arrogant
Now here is one I’ve never heard before, #2: They have delusional visions about how wealthy they might be. You mean even the dimmest of the Donald dimwits think they can do what he did? Take a million dollars from your father and turn it into four bankruptcies? Well, they would. And more power to them. But meanwhile we’re stuck with, well you know what. But like I said earlier, maybe there is hope when Trump starts again with his bizarre antics.
Let me finish with a question. Can we surmise from the above plus other recent articles on Donald Trump’s election; are his followers simply uneducated rednecks? Shades of the Tea Party.
