re: Donald Trump Thread III - 'Individual 1'
I didn't bother reading the Vox article but I find it highly believable that 78% of Dems believe Russia stole the election for Trump. I don't watch MSM but I do check in on Twitter every once in awhile and I watch a lot of Jimmy Dore and Kyle Kulinski, so that 78% number does not shock me in the slightest. Americans are still highly susceptible to propaganda and there are a lot of people out there even after 2 years that refuse to believe that Hillary was so repugnant to the public that Trump got elected.
Yeah, the electoral college is bullshit, but it should never have been even close. This speaks to how badly the Democrats failed during the Obama years more than anything else. Republicans don't run the country right now because a majority of people want Republicans running the country. They are in charge right now because the Dem Establishment fucking sucks donkey ass.
Humorously, the 2016 general election is one of the best endorsements of the electoral college system to date. Hillary Clinton never even deigning to visit the state of Wisconsin over the last several months of the campaign, for instance, demonstrates how relevant it remains in spite of her conceited belief that she would win easily. Whatever else one wishes to say about Donald Trump, the man, again and again, campaigned in particular states and spoke to the people of those states, again and again, with one of the most dizzying campaign blitzkriegs in American history. Trump flipped Wisconsin along with Pennsylvania and Michigan, and almost turned Minnesota red for goodness sake.
