Warren Out? Trump Says She's Trying To End Candidacy After NH Shutout

President Donald Trump used one of his favorite nicknames to mock Sen. Elizabeth Warren on the night of the New Hampshire Democratic presidential primary.
With about 50 percent of the vote in, Warren, who represents neighboring Massachusetts in the Senate, was stuck at 9.5 percent.
That was good for fourth place, as Warren trailed the leader, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, as well as former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who were in second and third, respectively.
Before all the votes had been counted, Warren took to the podium in New Hampshire and called for unity within the Democratic Party.
“We will need a nominee that the broadest coalition of our party feels like they can get behind,” she said. “We cannot afford to fall into factions.”

“We win when we come together,” she added.
According to Trump, Warren’s words show her heart isn’t really in the race.
The president even suggested Warren, whom he referred to as “Pocahontas” — a reference to her past claims of Native American ancestry, which eventually ended when a DNA test proved she was between 1/64th and 1/1,024th Native American — “is sending signals that she wants out.”
“Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night,” Trump said.
Donald J. Trump✔@realDonaldTrumpElizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to as Pocahontas, is having a really bad night. I think she is sending signals that she wants out. Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a “nice cold beer” with her husband!
“Calling for unity is her way of getting there, going home, and having a ‘nice cold beer’ with her husband!” the president added.
That last line was a reference to a December 2018 Instagram video with her husband in which Warren said, “Hold on a sec, I’m gonna get me a beer.”
Many saw the moment as clearly staged and inauthentic, according to The Atlantic.
Warren did not reveal any plans to drop out on Tuesday night, though it’s conceivable that Trump pouncing on the narrative of her flailing candidacy could hurt her chances even more.
Regardless, it was a bad day for her all around, with multiple outlets projecting she did not win enough votes in the state to earn any delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
CBS News✔@CBSNewsCBS News' Decision Desk reports that Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren are not on pace to win any delegates tonight. #NHprimary2020
Philip Klein✔@philipakleinMSNBC projecting Warren and Biden will be shut out of delegates in NH.
In order to earn delegates in New Hampshire, candidates must win at least 15 percent of the vote statewide or 15 percent in either of the state’s two congressional districts, according to NBC News.
Warren does not appear to have met the 15 percent threshold.
George Soros-backed candidate declares victory in Queens DA primary race
June 28, 2019

A far-left prosecutor with hopes of becoming the district attorney of Queens, New York received campaign backing from George Soros.
Despite reports alleging the primary race was too close to call, 31-year-old Tiffany Cabán declared victory Tuesday night over the party machine’s candidate, Queens borough president Melinda Katz, who is calling for a recount. Cabán is just the latest far-left prosecutor to be elected to a DA’s office nationwide with the help of Soros’ money.
Soros-backed candidate declares winProgressives including Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) celebrated Cabán’s apparent victory this week, which seemed to echo Ocasio-Cortez’s shocking primary win last summer against the Democratic establishment.
However, Cabán’s fight may not have been as much of an underdog battle as imagined. The Working Families Party, which supported Cabán’s candidacy, received $70,000 from the Soros-funded Justice and Public Safety PAC.
A self-described “queer Latina,” Cabán has won plaudits from the far-left for her plans to drastically change the criminal justice system in Queens. The public defender will bring a social justice agenda to the DA’s office, blurring the lines between political activism and prosecution.
Cabán’s “decarceral” approach will involve “prosecuting less” — that is, prosecuting the enemies according to her Marxist analysis (like landlords, bosses, police officers, and ICE agents) — while decriminalizing low-level drug offenses and “crimes of poverty” like jumping turnstiles and even prostitution. She also wants to end cash bail, shorten sentences for violent felons, and close down Rikers Island’s prison without replacing it.
Indeed, Cabán sees violent criminal offenders as victims who need therapy rather than punishment. Her approach to “prosecution” is straight out of Marxist theory: prisons are holding cells for the poor,and “exploitative” bosses should be prosecuted for “wage theft.”
A simple way to sum up this agenda might be “punish the rich, empty the prisons.” In fact, that seems to be not far off from what Cabán envisions; the Indypendent reported: “In a race where most candidates are calling themselves ‘progressives,’ she prefers the label ‘decarceral.’ Her goal is to keep as many people as possible out of jail.”
Planning for pushbackWhile Cabán’s apparent win — which still hasn’t been officially called — was met with cries of victory on the left, some former New York prosecutors and police officers are predicting that she will face resistance from the more traditionally conservative Queens DA office. (Although, let’s face it: any prosecutor’s office is “conservative” by comparison with Cabán’s platform.)
“I’m sure a bunch of people there who have been there their entire careers, who never anticipated or thought about new leadership – particularly leadership like this – they’re going to look to get out,” said Kenneth Montgomery, a former assistant prosecutor in the Kings County district attorney’s office.
Woke prosecutors – with Soros’ moneyThe push for Cabán to win in New York is part of a nationwide effort by the left to infiltrate and radically reform the criminal justice system from within. Otherwise quiet local DA races have become prime targets in the left’s agenda — and it’s not a conspiracy theory: Cabán is just one of several “woke prosecutors” who have claimed power, often with the backing of Soros’s Justice and Public Safety PAC, according to The New American.
Many of these prosecutors share a philosophy of prosecuting criminals less while targeting police. They tend to see crime as a “public health” problem, like polluted water or a disease epidemic, rather than an act of wrongdoing by an individual with free will. To them, the solution to crime is not to punish wrongdoers, but to target “oppressive” authorities that are blamed for crime instead — like the police, the wealthy, and so on.
A recent national controversy involving “woke prosecutors” dealt with Chicago’s Cook County prosecutor Kim Foxx, who dropped charges against hate crime hoaxer Jussie Smollett. Soros poured $408,000 into Foxx’s election.
In Philadelphia, Soros-backed DA Larry Krasner has been blamed for a rise in violent crime in his city. The city’s police union has accusedKrasner of prejudice in favor of criminals and against police and victims of violence. Krasner, who backed Cabán, received nearly $1.5 million from Soros.
Soros also poured more than $1 million into two recent local DA races in Virginia through his Justice and Public Safety PAC. On June 11, Parisa Dehghani-Tafti and Steve Descano unseated the incumbents in the Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office and Fairfax County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s office, respectively.
Indeed, if confirmed, Cabán’s victory is just the latest win for Soros in an effort to replace law and order with chaos. How long can we let this continue?
Report: Democrat Senator Quitting – Goodbye…
June 14, 2019
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) may leave his Senate seat to run for governor in West Virginia. The Senator is reportedly frustrated with a lack of bipartisanship in the Senate and constantly thinks of leaving, according to the Daily Caller.
While Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has tried to talk him into staying in order to hold the seat in 2020, other colleagues report that Manchin much preferred being governor from 2005-2010 and is looking for a way out of the Senate.
Manchin’s frustration comes as a result of partisan gridlock that has led to endless debate on bills that have little hope of passing a divided Congress or being signed by a president of the opposite party. “I want to make sure whatever time I have left in public service is productive,” he said to a fellow lawmaker over the Memorial Day holiday.
Democrats already have to win an additional three to four seats in order to gain control of the Senate. This will be an uphill battle because of the current Senate makeup.
Manchin’s departure will make gaining seats even more difficult, and may lead to a Republican gaining the seat and adding to the current 3-seat majority.
Democrats Pursue Voter Fraud Leading Up To 2020
June 8, 2019
by Rod Thomson
Mark Hemingway at Real Clear Investigations recently wrote a solid piece about the “data problem” with getting clean voter rolls and eradicating voter fraud.
He’s right, there is a data problem. And a management problem. And a competence problem. After all, government runs elections and government is pretty famously awful in all of those categories. But those are manifestations of a deeper problem that is going to dog the country in 2020 and almost assuredly beyond.
One of our two major parties opposes any attempts to enforce voting laws and block illegal voting, and has even begun making overt attempts to create legal voting pathways for non-citizens.
It’s fairly clear that the Democratic Party sees electoral benefit in non-citizens voting, and rightly so because of the gargantuan number of illegal Hispanics in the U.S. and first generation Hispanics are heavily Democratic voters.
Further, Democratic leadership sees a winning issue with the base and some Independents by painting Republicans as racistly trying to suppress the minority vote in their modest attempts to clean up voter rolls — even when those attempts are mandated by law.
Former Vice President Joe Biden is not only supposedly the most moderate among the Democratic presidential candidates, he’s just as quick as any new radical or old school Democrat to play the race card against Republicans.
Race is used dishonestly as a cudgel on virtually any issue. In 2012, speaking to a largely black Virginia audience about Mitt Romney’s plan to allow some deregulation of Wall Street, Biden told the crowd: “They’re going to put y’all back in chains.”
Pretty despicable, but also a hardened part of the Democratic platform in every election — and a real hot-button when connected with voting rights.
Republicans support basic voter identification laws to ensure ballot integrity. You just need to prove who you are to be able to cast that vote. This seems like it should be a bipartisan mom and apple pie issue.
But to Democrats like Biden, who supposedly represents the less radical arm of the Democratic Party, voter ID laws are an opportunity to slap down that tattered race card yet again. They purposely oppose every effort to create clean, up-to-date voter rolls.
Laws vary from state to state, but voter identification laws generally require that identification be presented before a voter reaches the ballot box. In some states, such as Florida where statewide vote margins can be razor thin, the ID must be shown at the polls, while other states only require it for voter registration. But in some states, such as Arizona, any ID, including a utility bill, will do.
Republicans say these laws protect against voter fraud by ineligible voters, including voting by illegal immigrants and double and triple voting.
For Democrats, it’s an opportunity to invigorate racial division and fear mongering. Here’s Biden at it again during a rally last month in South Carolina:
“You’ve got Jim Crow sneaking back in. You know what happens when you (black people) have an equal right to vote? They lose.”
So if Democrats see an opportunity to whip up racial tension among blacks and Hispanics that translate into more votes, they have zero motivation to actually try to ensure ballot box integrity. We’ve seen this recently in multiple states, including Texas, Florida and Pennsylvania, where attempts to make sure the voting rolls were cleaned up were met with vitriolic opposition and lawsuits.
The interesting fact is that there is no real evidence that voter ID laws actually suppress the votes of legal voters, including black voters. Even the left-of-center data site FiveThirtyEight substantially concludes this by looking at laws and voter turnout.
So does the left-of-center Brookings Institute in looking at Pennsylvania and Georgia, which both cleaned up their voting rolls prior to the 2018 election. Yet both saw huge jumps in black voter turnout — during a non-presidential midterm election.
“In fact, Georgia is one of the few states where black voter turnout exceeded white voter turnout in 2018. Moreover, its 2018 black voter turnout of 60 percent exceeded its turnout in the 2016 presidential election by 1 percent,” according to Brookings.
But this record black turnout, exceeding white turnout, does not stop Democrat Stacey Abrams, who lost a close race for Governor, to claim that she is the real winner because of voter suppression that limited the black vote. Democratic presidential contender Kamala Harris has said the same thing, both claiming to black audiences that Abrams was robbed of the victory by the GOP.
And of course San Francisco has voted to allow illegal immigrants and other noncitizens to vote in local elections. The fear by illegals that they will be identified by ICE has kept their numbers down, but the city has spent more than $300,000 in voter registration drives aimed at illegal residents. They really, really want illegals voting.
This is the undeniably glaring problem with trying to have clean, legal elections without fraud. Democrats don’t want it. They want both illegal votes of non-citizens, mostly Hispanics, and they want to fear monger blacks into high turnout while voting 90 percent Democrat.

June 8, 2019 at 10:24 AM Agree with article but get a little tired of being presented with problems but no solution so what is the solution ?
16 states still do not require any form of Identification in order to vote and some states like #1 population CA issue Driver’s licenses to illegals which can then be used to vote.
First of all – driver’s licenses should not be issued to illegal aliens – period.
Secondly, may seem socialistic but why not a law requiring a National ID Card w photo, only basic info (name, address) & an ID (alpha/numeric) issued free to every citizen managed by states given federal taxpayer $ to cover costs e.g. not another unfunded mandate.
In order to register to vote and to vote, one would have to show their National ID card.
Other potential solutions ?
'The people's victory': Le Pen tells Macron to dissolve parliament over EU election results
26 May 2019
A triumphant Marine Le Pen demanded President Emmanuel Macron dissolve parliament "as a minimum" after preliminary results suggested her party would top the election in France.Speaking to supporters Marine Le Pen said: "The French have placed the National Rally at the top of the European elections. I see the people's victory, who with pride and dignity have retaken power this evening.
"I widespread movement for an alternative is born."
The far right party leader said President Emmanuel Macron must deal with the consequences of the result, which exit polls suggested would see Le Pen's party pick up 24 percent of the vote compared to 22.5 percent for Macron's La Republique en Marche.
Le Pen, who lost out to Macron in a bitter presidential election in 2017, called for the head of state to dissolvethe parliament and call new elections, a proposal that was immediately rejected by the government.
"It is up to the president of the republic to draw conclusions, he who put his presidential credit on the line in this vote in making it a referendum on his policies and even his personality," she added.
"He has no choice but to dissolve parliament, as a minimum and put in place a voting system that is finally more democratic and more representative of the real public opinion in the country," she said.

parliament after exit polls indicated the party would top the election in France.

Hungary: “Europe is for Europeans, and needs leaders to defend it, migration should be stopped, not organised”
🔊 Listen to Post Posted by EU Times on May 23rd, 2019
In the radio program “Good Morning, Hungary”, Prime MinisterViktor Orbán said that a strong message must be sent to Brussels in the EU elections: “we want change, and a Europe that protects its borders on land and at sea”.
He also said that “we want to see leaders in Brussels who don’t want to organize migration, but who want to stop it”.
The Prime Minister added that there is a “liberal mafia” – including politicians, journalists and analysts – who are “flush with money”, and are working to convince the world that there is nothing that can be done to stop migration.
But, he said, when it turns out that there is indeed something that can be done – when Hungary stops migration on land, Italian Minister of the Interior Matteo Salvini does the same at sea and US president Donald Trump decides to build a wall – then these opponents of migration “start to be treated as hate figures”.
Mr. Orbán stated that “the EU elections are about accepting or breaking free” from the way of thinking that such pro-migration people “are trying to force onto us”, he stressed, adding that Europe needs leaders to defend it, because Europe is the home of Europeans and Hungary is the home of Hungarians.
He said that the majority of Hungarians “feel a chill run down their spines” when they hear so many European politicianssaying that migration is good, but that it should be better organised than it is today.
Asked whether there is any candidate for the post of President of the European Commission that he would support after having withdrawn his backing from Manfred Weber, Mr. Orbán said, “there will be, after the election”.
He said that two days after the election negotiations will begin for the selection of future European leaders, and “We’ll see how much support has been received by which political figures in which countries”.
UK's 'Mr. Brexit' Nigel Farage eyes EU election success
With Brexit postponed, the UK is holding European Parliament elections. Supporters of Nigel Farage's new party are hoping for a strong showing. DW's Birgit Maass reports from Wales on an unusual campaign season.
Nigel Farage has traveled to Wales to campaign on behalf of his new Brexit Party ahead of the European Parliament elections. An exuberant crowd awaits him in the small coastal town of Newport. "I´m back!," he tells his supporters, with his last word drowned out by loud applause. Hundreds of Farage fans have come here today from the surrounding area to see their political idol in person.
Farage's new party could emerge as the strongest British party competing in the European Parliament elections. In Wales, he tells his fans that his political movement wants nothing less than a "rebirth" of British democracy. Brexit was merely the beginning of this renewal, he says, accusing other UK lawmakers of failing to actually go through with the move.
Feeling of betrayal
By and large, Farage supporters feel they have been betrayed by the British political class. Many people in Newport voted for the Conservative Party in the last elections, yet now feel that Prime Minster Theresa May and her government are not delivering as promised.
Monima O'Connor, who lives in a tiny village in western Wales, is one of those people. She cannot fathom why after all this time Britain still has not managed to emancipate itself from the much maligned "Brussels bureaucrats." Together with her husband, O'Connor runs a shop selling sanitary goods. As they only sell to domestic customers, she does not see the point of Britain being in the European Union.
Farage drew a passionate crowd of supporters for his rally in Newport
Many Farage fans like her feel Prime Minister May has "betrayed" them. They want Britain to leave the EU as fast as possible, no matter the cost.
Farage draws roaring applause from the crowd when he rails against Westminster politicians. He accuses them of just serving themselves — a reproach he used to only direct at Brussels lawmakers.

'We must stop Farage'
Meanwhile, an hour's drive further south in the city of Bath, Rachel Johnson is campaigning for her new party, Change UK. She is former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson's sister, and it's the first time she has run for a seat in the European Parliament.
Rachel Johnson is adamant that "we have to stop Farage" and has called for a second Brexit referendum. She says this would be paramount to put an end to the protracted political chaos.
Frustration over handling of Brexit
Change UK is a pan-party alliance of British lawmakers from both the Labour and Conservative parties. What unites them is their frustration about their respective parties' inefficient way of dealing with Brexit. That's why they're campaign for a second referendum. This is the first the time the party has competed in the European Parliamentary elections.
But unlike Farage's exuberant campaign event in Wales, far fewer people have turned up to hear Johnson speak in Bath. She says she can understand why many Brits are fed up with the status-quo and now want to finally leave the EU because they're sick and tired of the topic.
MEP and former Belgium Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt, meanwhile, is campaigning on behalf of the Liberal Democrats in central London. "We want to be the alternative to all nationalists and populists in Europe," he says.
However, polls show that Farage's Brexit Party could win up 35% of the vote, while the Liberal Democrats are projected to take just 16%. And just 5% of the electorate will, if the polls are accurate, cast their ballot for Change UK.
Pro-European parties do not look like they have a chance against Farage's party. And instead of joining forces, they are competing against each other, arguing that Brexit is the wrong response to real issues that need to be addressed.
Farage's message, in contrast, is simple and catchy. He promises to make Brits proud of their homeland again. And lashes out against "career politicians," even though he himself has spent many years working as a Brussels lawmaker.
After the Newport campaign stop draws to a close, many attendees join Farage's party. And Monima O'Connor grabs a Farage poster, which she wants to put up in her village. Because, as she says, his Brexit Party is "wonderful."
The 2019 Legislative Session is now history.
Here are decisions of significance for property rights.
Mandatory Property Rights Element in All Local Comprehensive Plans
The goal of CPR’s proposal was to protect property owners seeking to develop or use their property in local decision making. CPR hears countless stories of property owners seeking to use or improve their property only to be opposed by local governments. The mandated addition of the property rights element in every Florida local comprehensive plan would “remind” all local governments of the legislative intent of comprehensive planning laws, “recognize and respect judicially acknowledged or constitutionally protected private property rights.”
The House version of this proposal (HB 291) sailed through three committees and then was passed 73 – 42. All Republican representative voted for the bill except for Rene Plasencia who voted “no” with 41 Democrat representatives.
The Senate version (SB 428) passed its first committee unanimously but, was stopped when Senator David Simmons chose to NOT put the bill on the Judiciary Committee’s final agenda. Attempts to amend this bill to another failed to happen.
This was a disappointing end to a bill that would greatly strengthen private property rights. However, this was the furthest this proposal has ever gone towards becoming law after several years of seeking its approval.
Protecting Property Owners with Septic Systems
The goal of CPR’s proposal was to open Florida’s free-market to septic system products which are affordable and effective at nitrogen reduction. For years, Florida’s Department of Health and its Bureau of On-site Sewage has stood in the way of permitting known, affordable, effective innovative products into Florida’s market. Due to BMAP mandates, Florida’s home owners have been left with only one approved option; an option that is untested in “real-life” conditions, expensive to install and operate, and dependent on electricity.
CPR’s proposal was to get government out of the way by appointing nationally-recognized organizations to test septic system products according to a Florida standard for nitrogen reduction. (Florida has yet to establish a standard, by the way.) Unexplainably, the bill’s sponsor, Representative Kamia Brown, filed the wrong bill language and, due to the confusion created, the bill was not heard in any committee.
Protecting the Everglades and Managing Storm-water
Property rights are tangential to almost all environmental issues. Sometimes, the use of property can contribute to environmental damage. But, most often, property owners are the best stewards of their property and the environment, in general. In April, CPR released a research paper on Everglades restoration to assess storm-water management and the restoration of the Everglades. The paper made seven recommendations to the Legislature regarding the allocation of funds; it was released just before the appropriations committees of the House and Senate began budget discussions and helped influence funding needs for water storage projects north of Lake Okeechobee.
A View Towards the 2020 Legislative Session
This year, several environmental issues regarding septic systems surfaced but, the Legislature chose to make no decisions.
Undecided issues included:
CPR provided information to many legislators and made proposals to:
These undecided issues, recommendations by CPR, and other issues such as the property rights element help to form a slate of agenda issues which CPR will bring to legislators in the next few months. The work done to address issues with legislators in the “off-season” is often more important than what can be done during legislative session.
CPR is the dedicated Voice for property rights in Florida. That’s why CPR continues to need your financial support.

Far-right Party Wins Seats in Spanish Parliament for First Time in 40 Years
Spain's Socialists appear to be ahead in the snap election held Sunday, but short of majority. Far-right group Vox was seen winning lower house seats

Spanish far-right party VOX leader and candidate for prime minister Santiago Abascal arrives to vote at a polling station in Madrid during general elections in Spain on April 28, 2019.AFP
The survey showed no single party close to winning a parliamentary majority. Far-right group Vox was seen winning lower house seats, making it the first party of its political hue to sit in Spain's parliament since 1982.
Spaniards cast their votes in numbers close to record highs in the country's most highly-contested election for decades, and one likely to lead to months of negotiations to form a government in a bitterly divided parliament.
>> Netanyahu party's foreign affairs director endorsed Spain's far-right party Vox – then apologized ■ Holocaust denier from far-right party Vox to run for parliament in Spain
This is the third national election in four years, and both the first two eroded the decades-long dominance of the two biggest parties, the Socialists and the conservative Popular Party. Another repeat is a distinct possibility.
A splintered vote followed by protracted talks to form an administration is becoming a recurrent theme in European politics as voters reject traditional parties in favour of new groups often at the extremes of the political spectrum.
In recent Spanish elections, early evening opinion polls carried out with a different methodology failed to give an accurate picture of the eventual outcome.

Dems Secret Plan To Beat Trump In Florida Backfires, Will Keep Florida In GOP Hands For Generations
Lower voting age to 16? How about raising it to 30?
By World Tribune on March 21, 2019
by WorldTribune Staff, March 21, 2019
People do not become fully “adult” until they’re in their 30s, according to scientists who study the brain.
“There isn’t a childhood and then an adulthood. People are on a pathway, they’re on a trajectory,” said Peter Jones, a professor at Cambridge University.
“What we’re really saying is that to have a definition of when you move from childhood to adulthood looks increasingly absurd. It’s a much more nuanced transition that takes place over three decades.”
Children legally become adults at age 18 in the United States and can then vote and join the military (without parental consent – 17 with parental consent). The drinking age is 21.
Several Democratic politicians support dropping the voting age to 16. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said “I think it’s really important to capture kids when they are in high school when they are interested in all of this, when they are learning about government, to be able to vote.”
Writing for the Washington Examiner, columnist Madeline Fry noted: “Some students don’t take government classes until their senior year of high school, and we expect them to stop eating tide pods long enough to cast a ballot for president?”
According to the University of Rochester Medial Center, “It doesn’t matter how smart teens are or how well they scored on the SAT or ACT. Good judgment isn’t something they can excel in, at least not yet.
The rational part of a teen’s brain isn’t fully developed and won’t be until age 25 or so.”
Scientists who study the brain and nervous system say the age at which you become an adult is different for everyone.
“I guess systems like the education system, the health system and the legal system make it convenient for themselves by having definitions,” Jones said.
“I think the system is adapting to what’s hiding in plain sight, that people don’t like (the idea of) a caterpillar turning into a butterfly,” he said.
The United States’ Founders created the ELECTORAL COLLEGE to ensure the STATES were fairly represented.
Why should one or two densely populated areas speak for the whole of the nation?
The following list of statistics has been making the rounds on the Internet.
It should finally put an end to the argument against the Electoral College . Do share this. It needs to be widely known and understood.
There are 3,141 counties in the United States. Trump won 3,084 of them.
Clinton won 57.
There are 62 counties in New York State. Trump won 46 of them.
Clinton won 16
Clinton won the popular vote by approx. 1.5 million votes.
In the 5 counties that encompass NYC, (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan,
Richmond & Queens) Clinton received well over 2 million more votes
than Trump. (Clinton only won 4 of these counties; Trump won Richmond)
Therefore these 5 counties alone, more than accounted for Clinton winning the popular vote of the entire country.
These 5 counties comprise 319 square miles.
The United States is comprised of 3,797,000 square miles.
When you have a country that encompasses almost 4 million square miles of territory, it would be ludicrous to even suggest that the vote of
those who inhabit a mere 319 square miles should dictate the outcome
of a national election.
Large, densely populated Democrat cities (NYC, Chicago, LA, etc.)
DO NOT and SHOULD NOT speak for the rest of our country!
And...it's been verified and documented that those aforementioned 319 square miles are where the majority of our nation’s problems foment.
