TRUMP’S VOTE FRAUD CLAIMS EXPLAINED
Why would the President-elect Donald Trump to try to delegitimize the results of an election that he won?
Suggesting massive fraud in an election in which they prevailed, seems to be rather screwy, especially if your competitors are already told, at the insistence and claims vote fraud.
There are always some vote fraud, especially with more than 134 million votes cast, but there is not even evidence for the localized vote rigging in the upper mid-West, Trump’s opponent, let alone the systemic illegality, which he claims claims.
So, why is the trump card-the trolls feed?
Some have suggested that it is an attempt to distract reporters from the wild infighting within the team on key Cabinet picks, the reported that he was mainly the avoidance of classified national security briefings, or the reinforcement of the control of its overseas business.
It is understandable that journalists have to jump on the distraction of the theory, since it inflates the value of journalism and provides a convenient justification for the seemingly irrational behavior.
But it is probably easier than that.
To win In Trump’s often said, Manichean view of the world is good and losing is bad. The fact that trump card due to lost the national popular vote, in the case of this census, about 2.2 million votes – almost 2 points – is therefore bad.
What is worse is that the Democrats are now trying to win delegitimize the President-elect actual elections, not only emphasize its symbolic popular defeat.
Trump’s stunning victory rests on his almost flipping three blue States: Wisconsin (.8 points), Pennsylvania (1.1 points) and Michigan (.2 points).
The recount is already underway in Wisconsin seems unlikely to change the outcome. And even if the Democrats and the members of the Green party could get, told, before the results of the final on or before Dec. 13 in the other two States, the probability of the reversal of all three of the remote to the point of absurdity. They had to overcome, 68,028 votes in Pennsylvania alone.
But of course it rankles Trump, whose tendency is to cook something that we have forgotten. So let’s hop in the Wayback Machine for a moment.
Many of these contain a reference that the identified seesawing letters from FBI Director James Comey had only a marginal effect on the presidential election.
That that was wrong.
The Topline numbers don’t change much, and most of the voters, said Comey mixed messages about the investigation in the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton‘s incorrect handling of state secrets is of little or no difference to you. Yes, we saw shifts in voter intensity favors Republicans, but the imbalance was gone before the day of the election.
But, as analysts had observed, during the entire cycle, the candidate who was best of the candidate discusses a minimum.
Over five weeks, Trump delivered a speech in Gettysburg, Pa. – a pivotal point in the final Chapter of the campaign. of it is a carefully crafted, competently delivered policy address was written by his advisers. The other part was a diatribe against the women accusing him of sexual assault, once a promise, you have to sue after the election.
But after Trump’s protection Gettysburg right, we heard barely a gurgle from the same steam boiler of the hatred issued, the attack on the Prosecutor. In fact, for the 16 days until election day, we saw a politician, devoted to the message.
Meanwhile, Clinton and their misdeeds is a criminal or not, dominated the reporting. And as we saw throughout the campaign, hear more voters to the two candidates who liked less. Comey’s zig-zag-must-not-Clinton-I hurt on the merits, but it did the worst thing he could do to either of 2106 major party nominees: He kept her in the news.
The crucial demographic group for the year 2016, almost a fifth of the voters, they told the exit pollsters that they viewed both candidates as unfavorable. Under this group, Trump, won with a 17-point landslide.
Trump the lower profile and the relative modesty in the victory. He was generous with Clinton, graciously, with President Obama , and preached unity. Otherwise, he was out of sight. Reporters and analysts grew forgetful about the trump card, which she had covered for 18 months.
But now, the cauldron is bubbling again.
It has been observed of Clinton’s admission in the recount in-game, that perhaps the wrong candidate was asked if he would abide by the voters your judgment. Also forget would have been to ask Trump if he’s going to respect the result, even if he won.
For the aforementioned reasons, count and calendar, fraud claims, probably not so important. And sure, the water is murky trump help a winner in the eyes of his followers, the faith that shows him, in spite of – or perhaps because of – reporting that his assertion is entirely without Foundation.
But Trump, his claims are the best indication so far that we return to the pre-Gettysburg trump.
Find Your Trench, People.

FROM THE STANDS
“[Bean soup] must be thin, so as to drench in thick slices of freshly baked, homemade bread. And a whisper of grated carrot is not bad, a couple of finely diced potatoes for a small body. And, of course, a couple of Bay leaves to be understood.” – John Mayer, Centerview, Missouri
[Ed. Note: Yes, Mr. Mayer, a hint of Laurel, is beautiful, and while the shredded carrots sounds pretty fancy, they could be a welcome addition. On the question of the thickness, but I’m strictly non-partisan. I start know with a thinner broth as the soup goes through cycles of cooling and rewarming, it will thicken. A basic beans soup is great cold weather food is that you have a VAT and keep it on the porch between the heaters. So make sure to lock the door, or the raccoons. One day, I’ll tell you the story, my father is ten years long struggle with the orneriest raccoons, ever dip your feet in Short Creek.]
