Was The Election Rigged?

I would bet that some Right wing dullard is rolling his/her eyes for they think this is a post about the election that brought Trump to the height of power, the presidency of the United States.

Well as much as I hate to pee on their parade…it is not about their man crush…….

Most of my regular visitors know that I like some history and I truly enjoy imparting a little knowledge to them…..and this is a little knowledge on some contentious elections in our past…..

“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part because they are so decentralized and the number of votes that are cast,” the president added. “There is no evidence that has happened in the past, or instances that will happen this year.”

While such complaints have been rare before votes were cast, they were very prominent in certain post-presidential elections, as was evidence that votes weren’t always counted properly.

I do enjoy this stuff….hopefully my reader learned something that they may not have known…..

  1. They are rigged to a large degree because of state primary rules. A certain amount of delegates from each state are not elected – the super delegates . These spots are awarded to party workers, elected officials and big time donors. In this last election most of them supported Hillary. I don’t have exact figures but I’m guessing she had at least 20% of the dem conv delegates wrapped up before primaries began. That would mean she’d have to win just over 30% of elected delegates but winning some winner take all states.So we do not have pure democracy in electing delegates. I see this as a problem but have no strong objections. Having worked for both parties and seeing the sacrifice , work and commitment of party supporters many really do deserve special consideration or reward to attend their conventions as voting delegates.

    1. I am not so happy with the primary system it feeds the need for cash and lots of it…….no we do not have a democracy Americans are too lazy for it to ever succeed…..chuq
