The very unique 2016 presidential campaign has been rife with accusations and mud-slinging of all kinds levied by and against the candidates. On one hand, you have the quintessential establishment Democrat (Clinton) who has been planning for this day almost her entire life. And on the other hand you have the anti-establishment Republican (Trump) who values the American Dream that he has been living all of his life.
Trump and Clinton: how many support each
The two candidates couldn’t be more different, and neither could their supporters. While the Democrat received record low turnouts in her primary, the Republican received record highs. There’s more. The uninspiring Democratic candidate has a hard time populating her rallies. Reports speak of attendees (even at the Convention) receiving payment to fill their seats and cheer as if rehearsed. On the other hand, the Republican candidate has to literally turn thousands away from his rallies, which fill to maximum capacity. Furthermore, his Convention speech ran much longer than rehearsed due to the constant passionate and unexpected applause from the audience.
There’s still more. Of course, the devotees of failed campaigns refuse to support the people’s choice. So do the die-hard party hacks. Aside from these, the man or woman on the street overwhelmingly supports the Republican candidate. This support crosses Party lines. It also inspires many who have never gotten involved in politics or cast a vote before.
Why is it necessary to take all of this into account?
Polls do not reflect reality
Because recent polls that show Hillary Clinton is ahead by over 10 points, which is bewildering. Her untrustworthiness is common knowledge and her unlikability competes for her untrustworthiness status. So her rise in the polls is more than illogical. It is incomprehensible.
Let’s add another factor into this scenario before proceeding further. Next, Donald Trump has recently made claims that he believes the election will be rigged. If you have any awareness of the lack of voting integrity and how easily someone can hack a voting machine, Mr. Trump’s assertion would come as no surprise. With an ideologically driven media supporting Hillary Clinton, and the nefarious actions of the Democratic Party and their propensity to act in illegal manners, rigging anything should be assumed and not disparaged.
What does Obama know?
Enter Barack Obama. In response to Donald Trump’s allegations regarding a rigged election, BO made use of his bully pulpit to respond by stating that if the polls showed Mrs. Clinton ahead by 10% points or more, Mr. Trump would not have a valid argument if he lost the election.
Well, the polls are showing Mrs. Clinton ahead by 10% points or more. So, is it reasonable to ask that if someone could rig an election, couldn’t they rig the polls as well? Remember that those conducting the polls are ideologues that support Mrs. Clinton.
If this is the case, then maybe we shouldn’t be asking why Trump is saying that the election will be rigged. Shouldn’t we ask instead what Barack Obama knows?
