Voters in Arizona, November 2016.

In the November 2016 election, voter turnout was up 4.7% around the country – USA Today

Turnout for the US election was expected to smash records as huge queues built up.

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.’

Ballot protection software on the new Ohio voting machines was TURNED OFF.

The Democrats?

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.

Exit polls suggest 61% of voters considered Trump unqualified to be president and only 34% said he had the right personality and temperament.

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 history of ‘rigged’ US elections: from Bush v Gore to Trump.

The anti-Clinton stories are mainly untrue.

No, a Florida whistleblower did not uncover ‘massive voter fraud’ (and other election hoaxes you might be seeing online)

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.”

Trump, GOP paying consultant dogged by voter fraud charges

Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day. Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!

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.

Voter “turnout was128 million by the afternoon” of 11 8 2016

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.

Other candidates 1,400,000
Voter turnout was 131 million Americans.
Can anyone explain the apparently odd results for 2016?

Trump Victory Sparks Nationwide Protests.

In the USA, nationwide protests have erupted against Trump.

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.

All voting systems DOWN in key 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.

There have been reports of votes being cast in the names of dead voters.

Colorado makes widespread use of mail ballots – 95 percent of votes cast in 2014 were on mail ballots.

Mary Eberle, an election-integrity advocate, says the mail ballot system makes it impossible to know how many times voters fill out ballots that never make it to the clerk’s office to be counted.

Eberle was among a majority of Boulder County canvass board members who voted not to certify certain election results in 2012 and 2014.

Colorado’s election system

“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…

Voters in key states endured long lines, equipment failures.

“A coalition of more than 100 civil rights and voting rights groups running a national election protection hotline reported that 40% of its calls came from African American and Hispanic communities, a possible indication that minority voters were being targeted.
“The majority of complaints came from California, New York, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina, with Florida seeing particularly high levels of voter misinformation…

“In Durham, North Carolina, electronic poll books that are used to check voter registration were down in the morning, forcing voters to wait longer…

“In Ohio, the eligibility of some black voters was challenged at the polls, according to voting rights groups. 
“Karen Hobert Flynn, president of Common Cause, said last-minute polling place changes and other problems in Arizona were ‘causing real confusion for many voters.’

“Problems being reported included …malfunctioning voting machines in Virginia; and confusion with closed or delayed-opening polling places in Georgia and Texas.”

“In Maricopa County, Ariz., Democratic officials asked a judge to keep polls open for two more hours following problems with voting machines …The request, like that in Colorado, was denied.

“In Philadelphia, would-be voter Chris Calvert tweeted that both voting machines were broken at his polling place. ‘No one can vote in our district today.’
“In a Detroit precinct in the battleground state of Michigan, the machine that counts ballots was not working from the very beginning of the morning…”
