2016 US ELECTION RIGGED
In the November 2016 election, voter turnout was up 4.7% around the country – USA Today
Yet, Donald Trump won one million fewer votes than Mitt Romney in 2012.
And many of Clinton’s votes seem to disappear.
Professor Mark Crispin Miller, who dislikes Hillary Clinton, says the 2016 election was stolen from the Democrats in a similar fashion to what happened in 2000 and 2004.
1.1 million people, mainly minorities, were removed from the voting rolls in swing states using a system called ‘Cross Check.’
Barack Obama’s 52% approval rating makes him more popular than Ronald Reagan at the end of his second term.
How it happened – The Economist
On the eve of America’s presidential election, national surveys gave Hillary Clinton a lead of around four percentage points, which betting markets and statistical models translated into a probability of victory ranging from 70% to 99%.
The polls suggested that Clinton would have easy wins in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

Protests against Trump
Donald Trump won one million fewer votes than Mitt Romney in 2012.
Did 5 million votes for Hillary Clinton go missing?
2016 – total votes for all candidates: 125,644,750.
2016 – 131,7000,000 people voted.
Remember Gore and Florida?
The anti-Clinton stories are mainly untrue.
Donald Trump‘s campaign paid at least $1.8 million to Nathan Sproul whose companies include several that have been repeatedly investigated for voter fraud.
In a 2012 Florida case, three employees of Sproul’s firm pleaded guilty to forging voter registrations.
“In California, Oregon, Nevada and Florida, Nathan Sproul’s workers were investigated on suspicion of forging signatures, destroying Democratic voter registrations or changing the addresses of legitimately registered voters without their consent, according to former employees, state investigations and news reports.”
In Pensylvania, the vote was close and easy to rig.
The 2016 election returns in Pennsylvania:
Donald Trump: 2,894,757
Hillary Clinton: 2,822,963
In Pennsylvania, “voters chose Trump while electing three statewide Democrats,” said PennLive.
2016 election results
Clinton: 60,122,876 votes.
The US Elections Project estimated that 130.8 million Americans cast a ballot in 2016
Turnout update: 131.7 million voted in the 2016 election (56.9%).
2008 election results
Obama: 69,498,516 votes. McCain: 59,948,323 votes.
There is a belief that the election was rigged.
The final polls showed Clinton in the lead.
How might the election have been rigged?
When looking for possible rigging, one looks at the states which Trump won by a very small margin.
In Florida, Clinton got 48% (4,485,745 votes) of the vote and Trump 49% (4,605,515 votes).
In Pensylvania, Clinton got 48% (2,844,705 votes) Trump got 49% (2,912,941 votes).
In Colorado, Hillary Clinton got 47% of the vote, and Trump 45%.
You could argue that the Clinton people rigged the vote in Colorado, or, that the Trump people found it too difficult to rig the vote in Colorado.
Colorado voted for Obama in 2008.
However, the voting system in Colorado is not untypical of the voting systems in other states.
On voting day, 11 9 2016, a Denver Elections Officer reported that all the electronic voting systems had crashed across the state of Colorado, a swing state.
There are 64 separate voting systems – one in each Colorado county.
You only have to hack some systems in quiet rural areas, in order to rig the election.
Colorado makes widespread use of mail ballots – 95 percent of votes cast in 2014 were on mail ballots.
“Tens of millions of Americans who descended on the polls Tuesday faced hours-long lines, sporadic equipment failures and confusion about polling places…
“Problems cropped up in Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and other key battleground states…
“In Durham, North Carolina, electronic poll books that are used to check voter registration were down in the morning, forcing voters to wait longer…
“Problems being reported included …malfunctioning voting machines in Virginia; and confusion with closed or delayed-opening polling places in Georgia and Texas.”
