By the Numbers: The Election that Shook the Nation

My intentions behind writing this article is to show you by the numbers how Donald Trump managed to beat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential race. Advanced warning this article will contain a lot of numbers and statistics, but also include my analysis on how he managed to win. In these swing states such as Florida, Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Michigan Trump managed to win the rural counties unlike Romney and he also did much better in metropolitan areas then Romney in 2012. I am going to go into detail about all of these swing states county by county to explain just how Donald Trump took down the political machine known as the Clinton’s.

Florida- Trump 49.1% Clinton 47.8%

The first thing to make note of in Florida is in 2012 Obama won 13 counties, in 2016 Hillary only won 9 counties. The reason the popular vote was so close in both elections was because the counties Obama and Clinton won contained the major metropolitan cities. Obama and Clinton managed to win the same counties that contained the cities of Miami, West Palm, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa Bay, Gainesville, and Tallahassee. However Clinton failed to win some key counties that Obama won such as Monroe county that contains Key West and Jefferson county which is the outskirts of Tallahassee. Also the counties that they both won Clinton’s percentages in 2016 in those areas were not as good as Obama’s in 2012. For example Leon county where Obama got 61.3% of the vote Hillary only got 60%. Broward county which is where Fort Lauderdale is Obama got 67% she got 66%.  Palm beach where Obama received 58% Hillary got 56%. When the Percentage of the total state votes are so close these differences between the two impact the state greatly. The difference in these counties made the difference between Obama winning the state 50% to 49.1% over Romney and Hillary losing 49.1% to 47.8%.

Wisconsin- Trump 47.9% Clinton 46.9%

Wisconsin is slightly different, Obama won this state pretty easily in 2012 and Trump managed to steal it in 2016 by 1%. In 2012 Obama won 36 counties and won the popular vote 52.6% to 46.1%. In 2016 Clinton only managed to win 13 counties and lost 47.9% to 46.9%. The southwest part of the state was almost exclusively Democrat in 2012 but Trump managed to flip the majority of the counties in that area. In Wisconsin Clinton managed to keep the metropolitan areas but couldn’t keep any of the rural areas that Obama won in 2012.

Ohio- Trump 52.1% Clinton 43.5%

In 2012 Obama took 16 counties containing all the major cities in the state, he won the state 50.1% to 48.2%. Clinton only managed to take 7 counties and lost 8 of the 12 northern counties that Obama managed to win. The counties that contained the major cities Clinton did managed to keep but the percentages weren’t near good enough to give her a chance in the state. Athens county Obama got 66.1% Clinton only managed 55.7%. Mahoning county which is where Youngstown is Obama won 63.2% of the vote, Hillary almost lost the county and only got 49.8% of the vote. In Lucas county where Toledo is Obama won 64.3% of the vote Clinton only won 56.0% of the vote. This counties turned the vote around to give Trump an easy win. He also managed to completely take counties that had Dayton, Bowling Green, and Sandusky along with taking 9 more counties that Obama had in 2012.

Pennsylvania- Trump 48.8% Clinton 47.6%

In 2012 Obama took 13 counties and won the popular vote 52% to 46.8%. Clinton did manage to take 11 counties and even flipped one county that Romney took in 2012, however it wasn’t enough to beat. First is Erie county where in 2012 Obama won the county 57.8% to 40.9%, a very large margin. Trump not only made this county close he actually flipped it in his favor 48.8% to 46.8%. In Dauphin county where Harrisburg is located, Obama won it 52.4% to 46.4%, in 2016 Trump narrowed the margin only losing the county 49.4% to 46.6%. Trump also managed to flip Luzerne County which in 2012 Obama won 51.7% to 46.8%, whats most impressive is he not only flipped the county but won in a landslide 58.4% to 38.8%. with these changes from 2012 to 2016 all in Trump’s favor we can see now why Trump managed to flip Pennsylvania in his favor 48.8 to 47.6.

Michigan- Trump 47.6% Clinton 47.3%

In 2012 Michigan was an easy victory for Obama winning 20 counties and the state 54.3% to 44.8%. This was probably the most shocking victory for team Trump by squeaking out the state 47.6% to 47.3%. The question is where did this drastic shift occur? the first notable aspect was Clinton only managed to keep 8 counties. Wayne county where Detroit is Obama won 73.1% to 26.2% in 2012. Clinton won the county by a large margin but it was less than Obama at 66.8% to 29.5% in 2016. Ingram county where Lansing is located, Obama won 63.4% of the vote where as in 2016 Clinton only won 60.9% of the vote. Genesee county where Flint is located, Obama won the county with 63.6%, Clinton only managed to win the county with 52.4% of the vote. With all these differences we can see why it went from almost a 10% Democrat majority to a .3% Republican win for Donald Trump.

These swing states were what won Donald Trump the election. I see a lot of the mainstream media claiming this was a movement from White rural voters. The reality of this election is not an uprising from White men and women across America but instead an uprising among unlikely Trump voters in Metropolitan areas. Though he did not win these inner cities outright, he managed to flip just enough of those voters to win the swing states required to win the election.

    In 2008, I remember Sarah Palin being disappointed that the McCain Campaign gave up on Michigan. Trump did not, and his message hit home here, Just like Reagan did in 1980.

    California is talking about seceding from the union because the snowflakes cannot handle the words “President Trump”.
    Let it be known that they will also take 3 trillion of the U.S. debt with them if they secede from the union, their fair share, as well as becoming exempt from all government handouts such as Student loans, food stamps, welfare, healthcare and SSI. Like a millennial living in their parent’s basement being forced to support themselves in the real world, and pay their own way, They will quickly see that life is not always fair. Oh, And they can also pay for their own Military protection as well. The U.S. is paying for enough outside the U.S. for this. If Oregon wants to join California, the same goes for them.

ROY MOORE, STANDING STRONG

George Lujack

Despite repeated calls from Democrats, establishment Republicans, the mainstream media, and other leftist political operatives demanding Judge Roy Moore withdraw his nomination from the upcoming U.S. Senate election in Alabama, he has stood strong and has refused to step down. Moore’s refusal has his political opponents in a panicked frenzy not seen since the nomination and election of President Donald J. Trump.

What have Moore’s opponents accused him of? A crime? No. Moore is accused of initiating contact, termed “a sexual encounter,” with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. Likewise, he is accused of similar such events as dating an assortment of 16, 17, and 19 year old women. DATING! That’s right, dating and with parental consent. Oh, but he may have “touched” or “kissed” one of them, so say his accusers! These events allegedly occurred 38-years ago, when Moore, now 70, was 32! Talk about due process and stretching the statute of limitations to new limits!

Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, has vowed to stay in the race and has called many of the accusations against him “completely false.”

Even if these allegations were true, they are not crimes. The Alabama legal Age of Consent for sexual contact is 16 years old. Thirty-one states have set their age of consent at 16, the lowest age of consent in any state. Are we going to make up laws to lock up men, if while on a date with women, a man “inappropriately touches” a young woman, but she rejects his advances and he stops? Is this attempted rape according to feminists? Does the same standard apply if a woman touches a man’s chest or lap? Can this then be reported as unwanted “inappropriate touching,” which can irreparably destroy a man’s life going forward?

You may as well lock up all the men in the country and / or disqualify them from running from public office if making the slightest physical advance towards a woman, or the accusation of doing so, becomes an unforgivable crime. Oh, I suppose it is, but only if they are Christian-values Republicans. More, no pun intended, on that later…

Ivanka Trump told the Associated Press that she believes the stories of the women who have accused Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore of pursuing them as teenagers. Ivanka said, “There’s a ‘special place’ in hell for people who prey on children,” regarding the Moore accusations, and further stated,”I’ve yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.”

Ivanka, darling, now that your daddy is president, I am sure it is your wish to be loved by the establishment who hate both you and your father. I’m sure you think a great way for you to do this is for you to join them in condemning Moore. Ivanka, speaking of your daddy President Donald J. Trump, did you know that the same kind of accusers vilified your father, but you asked us to trust you, because you knew your father loved women? Ivanka, did you know that your daddy Donald is 71, is on his third marriage, and his current wife Melania is 47-years-old and Donald Trump is 24 years older than her? Did you know the age difference between a 32-year-old man and a 16-year-old woman is 16-years, which is less of an age discrepancy than Donald and Melania have? Ivanka, did you know that your daddy Donald was caught on tape bragging about “grabbing women’s pussies?”

Ivanka, you claim that you see no reason to ever disbelieve a woman who accused Judge Roy Moore of sexual misconduct / inappropriate touching. Can you really be that dumb and naive? I have a viable reason and explanation for you. Politics. Lying liberal women used by Democrat operatives to bring down the candidacy of a Republican U.S. Senate candidate who they loathe, Judge Roy Moore.

The National Republican Committee and National Republican Senatorial Committee have pulled their financial support from Moore’s campaign. As the Republican establishment turned its back on Moore, the people have risen up and donations have poured in for Roy Moore. Many Senate Republicans have urged Moore to drop his bid, whether or not he is guilty of anything. Moore and his campaign have made it clear that this isn’t what he intends to do, and have questioned the legitimacy of his signature in his accusers’ high school yearbook. Moore has called the allegations fake news in an attempt to dismantle his campaign.

Democrat operatives love using forgeries, such as the seemingly obvious forgery of Roy Moore’s signature in his accuser’s yearbook. Liberals vehemently defend such forgeries, such as was the case with Obama’s forged birth certificate, then tactically vilify anyone who would question the authenticity of the forgery, as with Obama’s birth certificate, as a “birther.” In this case of Roy Moore, liberals rail against anyone who would question the integrity of young (now old) women who would never lie about allegations of sexual misconduct. Many on the political left have been quick to say that Moore’s young accusers (now old and some openly Democrat supporters) would never lie. The dangerous belief that young women would never fabricate a lie once led to the execution of 20 persons, five additional deaths, and hundreds of arrests and imprisonments in the Salem witch trials of Massachusetts in 1692-1693. Roy Moore is likewise facing a Washington establishment witch hunt.

Bill Clinton had oral sex performed on him by an intern during his presidency, but liberals and the mainstream media saw no reason to disqualify him and remove him from office. Republicans were roundly criticized for impeaching a sitting president, who not only took advantage of an impressionable young intern, but then lied under oath about it. Furthermore, the mainstream media routinely turned a deaf ear to the numerous groping and rape accusations made against Bill Clinton.

This brings us to the real reason Judge Roy Moore is under attack. No one cares about tales of Roy Moore dating, kissing, and touching legal aged young women. Moore is a Christian-values candidate who unashamedly governs and legislates according to his conscious and faith. He has stood against the U.S. Supreme Court, defending Alabama’s Constitution and laws against the imposition of gay marriage imposed upon the people of Alabama. The pro-homosexual establishment government and mainstream media, who are at war with traditional Judeo-Christian morality, will use any means necessary to try to destroy Roy Moore, an honorable candidate for U.S. Senate who stands for the values that they abhor, as they continue on their maddening self-destructive quest to transform America into a atheistic secular society, ridding the nation of all its Judeo-Christian values and foundations.

WRITTEN, CREATED, ENGINEERED, AND PRODUCED BY JOE DAN GORMAN

40 year old allegations and no due process. What country is this?  And this is being allowed to impact the balance of OUR US Senate?

This is EXACTLY why DUE PROCESS -and not MOB JUSTICE- was put in the US Constitution by our Founding Fathers.

I’m not at all surprised by Swamp creatures – BUT SEAN HANNITY?  Shame on Sean for giving the Judge Moore a 24 hour ultimatum.
We cannot let them win.
