Does anybody really believe that Hillary won California by 4.3 million votes legally? California is a bevy of Sanctuary Cities. It has encouraged illegal immigration. Its environmental policy and high taxes have driven out millions of moderate and Republican voters. It has issued drivers licenses to illegal aliens. Drivers licenses are the ID used to vote. Democrats deliberately did this in order to get around the law prohibiting illegals from voting.
Millions of illegals voted across the nation, millions of dead people, millions of people voted multiple times in different states.
Democrats oppose voter ID laws. They oppose purging and updating voter registration polls. They push Motor Voter registration, long early voting and lax treatment of absentee ballots and voting by mail. In addition, they have passed laws that allow surrogates help people to vote, which means in many cases voting for them.
Democrats who are having trouble getting out of the first stage of grief — denial — aren’t being helped by the fact that, now that all the votes are counted, Hillary Clinton’s lead in the popular vote has topped 2.8 million, giving her a 48% share of the vote compared with Trumps 46%.
To those unschooled in how the United States selects presidents, this seems totally unfair. But look more closely at the numbers and you see that Clinton’s advantage all but disappears.
As we noted in this space earlier, while Clinton’s overall margin looks large and impressive, it is due to Clinton’s huge margin of victory in one state — California — where she got a whopping 4.3 million more votes than Trump.
California is the only state, in fact, where Clinton’s margin of victory was bigger than President Obama’s in 2012 — 61.5% vs. Obama’s 60%.
But California is the exception that proves the true genius of the Electoral College — which was designed to prevent regional candidates from dominating national elections.
In recent years, California has been turning into what amounts to a one-party state. Between 2008 and 2016, the number of Californian’s who registered as Democrats climbed by 1.1 million, while the number of registered Republicans dropped by almost 400,000.
What’s more, many Republicans in the state had nobody to vote for in November.
There were two Democrats — and zero Republicans — running to replace Sen. Barbara Boxer. There were no Republicans on the ballot for House seats in nine of California’s congressional districts.
At the state level, six districts had no Republicans running for the state senate, and 16 districts had no Republicans running for state assembly seats.
Plus, since Republicans knew Clinton was going to win the state — and its entire 55 electoral votes — casting a ballot for Trump was virtually meaningless, since no matter what her margin of victory, Clinton was getting all 55 votes.
Is it any wonder then, that Trump got 11% fewer California votes than John McCain did in 2008? (Clinton got 6% more votes than Obama did eight years ago, but the number of registered Democrats in the state climbed by 13% over those years.)
If you take California out of the popular vote equation, then Trump wins the rest of the country by 1.4 million votes. And if California voted like every other Democratic state — where Clinton averaged 53.5% wins — Clinton and Trump end up in a virtual popular vote tie. (This was not the case in 2012. Obama beat Romney by 2 million votes that year, not counting California.)
Meanwhile, if you look at every other measure, Trump was the clear and decisive winner in this election.
Number of states won:
Number of electoral votes won:
Trump: + 68
Ave. margin of victory in winning states:
Trump: + 2.5 points
Popular vote total:
Clinton: + 2.8 million
Popular vote total outside California:
Trump: + 1.4 million
Liberals have been claiming that the electoral college needs to go. Their reasoning is that Hillary Clinton actually won the popular vote, so clearly, the majority of the American people want her. But is that really true? One watchdog organization claims that almost 7 million American votes could be fraudulent.
Watchdog.org reports that approximately 6.9 million people are registered to vote in two or more states. “Our nation’s voter rolls are a mess,” says Catherine Engelbrecht, president of True the Vote, says. She claims that special interest groups fight common-sense reforms that would help with maintenance so that they can continue abusing the system. “Sensible approaches to roll maintenance are fought tooth and nail by radical special interests who can use the duplicity in the system to their advantage,” Engelbrecht claims.
28 states have been found to be involved in the potential voter fraud, including California, Florida and Texas. “Duplicate registration is an open invitation to voting fraud,” said Clara Belle Wheeler, a member of the Election Board in Albemarle County, VA. “This ability to vote more than once dilutes the legal votes and changes the results of elections.”
You read that right, the state in which many residents are now pushing for it to leave the U.S. would’ve decided the election. The popular vote total outside California was Trump: 58,474,401, Clinton: 57,064,530, meaning Trump is ahead by 1.4 million votes outside of California.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them… and Clinton won 57. Thank GOD for the electoral college!
Right now, there’s a well-organized, below-the-radar effort to render the Electoral College effectively useless. It’s called the National Popular Vote, and it would turn our presidential elections into a majority-rule affair. Would this be good or bad?
