THANKS JILL … DONALD TRUMP CONFIRMED VICTOR IN WISCONSIN RECEIVING EVEN MORE VOTES …
The Wisconsin recount is over and it confirms what we already knew, Donald Trump is the winner. The Wisconsin recount of nearly 3 million ballots ahead of a federal deadline on Tuesday, however, in the end little changed, as Trump adding just 131 votes to his margin. Hillary Clinton gained 713 votes over her previous total, while Donald Trump gained 844 votes in Jill Stein’s failed Green party sham. As CBS reports, this effectively brings Stein’s recount efforts to an end with nothing to show for it.
The results of the Wisconsin recount were finalized Monday, reaffirming Donald Trump’s victory in the traditionally blue state.
The Associated Press reported Monday afternoon that Trump actually picked up 162 additional votes, keeping his margin of victory around 22,000 over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
The final results, certified by the Wisconsin Elections Commission, changed by fewer than 1,800 votes.
Check This Out from 2016 Election Eve …. Watch Megyn Kelly Shake Her Head When She Realizes Donald Trump Will Become President (VIDEO)
FROM 2016 ELECTION NIGHT … THE REALITY SETS IN …
How did I miss this? I was a bit busy on election eve at a watch party and trying to get data from multiple outlets on line and TV that I missed the below VIDEO when it took place live. Take a good look at how Megyn Kelly, a FOX News anchor acts as she realizes that Hillary Clinton is going to lose and Donald J. Trump is going to become the next president of the United States. The look on her face and her shaking of her head was a bit telling. Hey Megyn, maybe we can play poker some time
However, even before the votes were counted for the presidential election, we pretty much knew that the impossible was about to happen and Trump had a legitimate chance to pierce Hillary’s blue wall in Wisconsen when the U.S Senate race was called and Republican Johnson easily defeated Democrat Russ Feingold, 50.2% to 46.8% .
INTERESTING, THIS BODES WELL FOR DONALD TRUMP … COULD HE REALLY FLIP COLORADO?
As reported at The Denver Post, Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend. According to the data released Monday, registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats, a 7,360 vote GOP advantage. Now of course not all Republicans and Democrats are going to vote along party affiliation; however, this is an interesting number seeing that the Democrats have always had a greater get out the vote campaign. This does show voter enthusiasm. As stated at the Washington Examiner, the polls indicated that Colorado was a blue leaning state, but could Colorado, that went to Obama twice, be flipped to the GOP?
Trump needs to flip blue states red in order to gain 270 electoral votes. Is Colorado one of those possible states?
Republicans took the lead in early voting in Colorado at the end of the day Friday and held the advantage through the weekend despite robust Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts.
The latest early voting numbers released Monday morning show registered Republicans cast 652,380 ballots compared to 645,020 registered Democrats — a 7,360 vote GOP advantage. The breakdown looks like this: 35.2 percent Republican, 34.8 percent Democrat and 28.5 percent unaffiliated.
It’s worth noting that not all Republicans are voting for GOP nominee Donald Trump — just as not all Democrats are supporting party nominee Hillary Clinton. But the early voting is a potential sign of party organization and voter enthusiasm.
LOOKS LIKE TRUMP IS GOING TO FLIP BLUE STATE IOWA TO RED …
According to the most recent Des Moines Register poll, Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton in Iowa by 7 points, 46% to 39%. This is usually an accurate and trusted poll in Iowa. In 2008 Obama won Iowa 54% – 45% and in 2012 Obama won it 52% to 46%.; however, it would seem by all indications that Donald Trump has flipped Iowa red.
Donald Trump has surged to a 7-point lead over Democratic rival Hillary Clinton among Iowa voters, firmly establishing the Republican presidential nominee as the favorite to win the state’s six electoral votes on Tuesday.
Trump is the top choice for 46 percent of Iowans who have already cast a ballot or plan to do so on Election Day, according to the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll, compared to 39 percent who say they’re for Clinton.
That makes the state Trump’s to lose, political analyst Amy Walter said.
Trump leads among several key demographic groups, including men, self-identified independents, young and middle-aged voters and those without a college degree.
Forty-one percent of independents support Trump, compared to 34 percent who back Clinton. Trump likewise leads by 5 percentage points — 43 to 38 — among voters under 35.
ITS STILL A LONG SHOT, BUT THERE IS MUCH MORE OF A SHOT TODAY THAN THERE WAS 2 WEEKS AGO …
CNN is reporting that there are several ways that Donald Trump could reach the magical number of 270 electoral votes to win the presidency. Two weeks ago there was seemingly no chance that Trump could win. Then came the reports of the insane Obamacare premium increases and then came the news that the FBI was reopening the Hillary Clinton private server/email investigation as emails pertaining to the case were found on the laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, under investigation for sexting with a minor. Then the added investigation of the Clinton Foundation. The polls are trending toward Donald Trump, however, is it too little, too late? We shall see this Tuesday.
Donald Trump’s path to 270 electoral votes remains precarious — but with some breaks, he can get there.
Trump’s campaign has made clear exactly what its targets are. It is spending $25 million on TV ads in the final week of the campaign in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, Nevada and New Hampshire.
Those ad buys are based on the assumption that Trump doesn’t need extra help to keep Arizona, Georgia, Utah, Texas or any other traditionally red state in the Republican column Trump starts with four must-wins: Florida, Ohio, North Carolina and Iowa.
Those — plus making sure he doesn’t surrender other typically Republican states, and winning the one electoral vote that can come from Maine’s Second Congressional District — get Trump to 260 electoral votes. (read more)
