Things That Make You Wonder About Trump’s “Loss”

Written by Micah Clark

Few media outlets are significantly reporting the President’s legal arguments or questions surrounding the stalled counts in several swing states that moved from Trump to Biden in the wee hours of the morning after Election Day. Most of the media could not care less about election fraud and want the President to concede right now, even though they had no such calls during Al Gore’s 37-day court fight after the 2000 election.

Voting machine oddities are not the only things that may make you wonder.  Here are a few more:

•  President Trump’s approval rating has risen 3 points since Election Day to 52 percent.  Interestingly, on Election Day Donald Trump had an approval rating similar to Barack Obama (50 percent) when Obama easily won re-election in 2012.

•  There are 19 “bellwether” counties in America that have reliably mirrored the presidential election outcome for the past 40 years.  This year, President Trump won 18 of those counties.

•  When pollsters asked Americans if they were better off today than they were four years ago 56 percent said yes just before Election Day.  This is a record high number besting even Ronald Reagan in 1984.  Only 32 percent said they were worse off in mid-October. If Donald Trump is not reelected, he will be the first President to have this high of a rating and still lose.

•  Although exit polling is not always the most accurate, you have probably heard that the number one issue of concern to voters was the economy.  This was an issue in which President Trump easily beat Joe Biden in polling and was considered Trump’s strongest election issue.

•  Republicans defied all predictions and rather than losing seats, they gained at least a dozen seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and flipped two state legislatures from Democrat to Republican Control.  Not a single incumbent Republican member of the U.S. House lost their election. It seems strange that the down ballot races would favor Republicans, but the Republican President would lose.

•  At least one pollster, Richard Baris of Big Data Polling, and the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel have noted another anomaly. “Trump won the largest non-white vote share for a Republican presidential candidate in 60 years. Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country, save for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia,” Barris said.  (How convenient.)
