The voter not the movie
For past few elections we have had all the analyses on the voter…..we have red and blue voters and then we have, according to the pundits, purple voters….meaning that they could go either way in their voting habits….I guess we could call them the independents.
For the last couple of general elections this has been a point that the MSM likes to drive the conversation……and in most cases they have been wrong on so many levels.
This last election with the election of Trump may be crapping all over this “trend” that the media likes to drive…..
President Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton was among the narrowest in history, and the country is deeply split on his job performance so far. But if you feel like you hardly know anyone who disagrees with you about Trump, you’re not alone: Chances are the election was a landslide in your backyard.
More than 61 percent of voters cast ballots in counties that gave either Clinton or Trump at least 60 percent of the major-party vote last November. That’s up from 50 percent of voters who lived in such counties in 2012 and 39 percent in 1992 — an accelerating trend that confirms that America’s political fabric, geographically, is tearing apart.
To me, these voters are not independent for they hug the two party system…never a thought for alternatives…..to me they are centrists….period.
Do tell….is this a new “trend” starting or is it a temporary thing that could right itself with the next election?
