I wonder how many Bronx and Queens residents voted for both Trump and AOC to make the statement: “I like my politicians LOUD!”

I’d presume these shifts in part were anti-De Blasio, who presided over / egged on a huge increase since Memorial Day in looting and shooting. On the other hand, so did Minnesota’s Democratic politicians, but the dweebs of the Gopher State swung strongly toward Biden.

    Steve, why not accept the obvious explanation:
    1. Trump increased his share among whites by 5% and his share among minorities by 15%.
    2. The CIA/Dominion vote stealers increased their transfers from Trump to Dem by 10%.
    3. Net effect was for Trump to “lose” 5% among whites and gain 10% among minorities.

  5. Minorities like Trump’s blowhard doofus schtick more than they did in 2016, but still less than whites do.

    Too bad Kushnerism didn’t work where it really counted. Trump could have DOUBLED his NYC vote totals over 2016 (from 19% to 38%) and NY would still be a blue state. All the action in Presidential elections is in swing states and in particular in the suburbs of the big cities and this is where Trump lost the election.

    The votes were switched, anyone who still thinks there’s even a reason to “wait and see” is a High (or low) IQ Idiot.

    Nevertheless, your point stands. The idea that Biden could anywhere near the votes he did get is stunning. Between his unacceptable policies (yes, opinions differ, hence we have elections) AND his manifest cretinism (unarguable) show this is no longer a functioning democracy.

    At one time, mutants like him who slipped through the primary process were given the door via humiliating landslides (Goldwater, McGovern, Carter, Mondale) leading their party to intense introspection, lest the party itself get the Whig treatment. Now they become President.

  30. Anon[817] • Disclaimer says:

    I’d like to see an empirical deep dive into the “missing 5%” of white voters who supposedly turned away from Trump. The idea that Trump lost because he alienated working class men who supported him in 2016 is totally contrary to my IRL experience. It feels more like something that certain bitter online alt-righters want to believe rather than what actually happened.

    I know a lot of white people who voted for Trump in 2016, but I don’t know a single one who didn’t vote for him again in 2020. I was probably closer to it than them, actually, although I did vote for him this year. I was the one browbeating them into voting for him in 2016, but four years later they were all uniformly, enthusiastically supportive of him-even more than I was. In my extended circle of white, outer-suburban and rural right-wing acquaintances, Trump greatly reinforced his support over the past four years. Many of those who held their noses while voting for him in 2016 were almost cringeworthy in their support for him this time.

    So…who exactly was the prototypical white person who voted for Trump in 2016 but not this year? Maybe Biden got a lot of votes from whites who didn’t vote four years ago, but the idea that Trump lost so many voters just feels wrong.

  31. Jack D says:
    @Ron Mexico

    Yes. College educated suburban whites hated Trump and his style, especially women. I saw it with my own eyes. Absolutely organic. Trump knew this from his polling and alluded to it at his rallies. He told them that he was keeping the Section 8 kneegrows out but that just made them hate him more because they knew that it was true.

    Dry cleaner: I’m confused. This is a very nice shirt. Very expensive. I can tell. Good fabric. Well made. Why don’t you just buy a black shirt, and keep this one?

    Customer: You don’t understand. This one just isn’t the right color. It needs to be…darker. Blacker. Can you do it?

    Exactly right on both counts. on a higher SES level my friends are all mid-20s rich kid evangelicals the kind who were uniformly hostile to Trump during the primary and most of whom grudgingly supported Trump in 2016. By 2020 they were pretty much all on extremely board to a point that was kind of annoying to me considering all the side eye I got in 2016 for being MAGA from the moment he came down the escalator.

    The professional class defection seems to exist mostly among Washington based politicos- but it created a perception and an opening for fraud and the Dems exploited it.

    American voting, barring certain local restrictions (my municipality effectively has voter ID), has no meaningful verification, and allows vote stealing provided you get there first and the victim never pursues some “VA benefit claim” -like legal mess. If I get there first, the locality doesn’t require photo ID, and Jack D never notices, I steal his vote. That’s the Democrat ideal and the actual process in many places. There have been among the affidavits and witness presentations of the Trump team many people who say they were told, “I’m sorry, you already voted.” This would obviously be all the more easier with mail-in. And none of this is “evidence.”

    If you talk to someone who voted for Biden, and say something like “How is it possible that Biden got ten million more votes than Obama? There’s an obvious problem.”, they’re angry and insulted. They voted for the guy because they really believe in him. No kidding.

    Can you accept that there are five million more people who voted for Biden than Trump because they wanted to?

    I’m just saying that the Left is just way more powerful than any of us want to admit. Absolute control over traditional media and social media made it happen. Mass voting by mail lowered the barrier to voting right down to zero, and every person who was pushed by media to dislike Trump voted.

  46. Jack D says:

    This is the easiest type of vote fraud to prove and thus the worst idea. If I got to the polls and was told that I already voted, I’d be really pissed and would make a big stink, go to the press, police, etc. Maybe there are security cameras and they can play back who voted in my place. Maybe I come in only 1 minute later and the guy is still there in the voting booth for the cops to arrest. The poll workers can testify, etc. You would think that there would be at least ONE provable case.

  47. I believe many, many middle class and lower middle class white people were deeply disappointed by Trump’s term in office. In the past four years these law abiding white Americans were made to endure continued mass legal and illegal immigration along with it’s ongoing social and economic costs to their towns, neighborhoods, and schools. At the same time they didn’t notice
    mass deportations of illegal aliens that are benighting so much of America.

    The summer rioting throughout the country went on unchecked for months. A lot of folks watched the looting and arson with growing unease and dismay.

    Finally, Trump did not seem to make a concerted effort to accelerate and complete the construction of the border wall which he regularly emphasized he would do in just about every speech he gave in 2015 – 2016. Remember that big, beautiful wall?

    What do you think happened to the Libertarian voter? Stayed home? Voted for Biden? Anyway, a lot of Johnson 2016 voters were far from libertarian [sic]. Jo Jorgensen’s smaller total more likely reflected the real thing.

    Thanks for the pointer. Data is very hard to fake because it has multiple properties that are hard to synthesize. https://blog.revolutionanalytics.com/2017/05/the-datasaurus-dozen.html
    (this blog has a similar name but is different, I chose it merely to illustrate the data concept) . This has been well studied with attempts to synthesize data, anonymize data, and impute missing fields in records.

    15 of 67 counties above the 95% percentile means either the measure is wrong (exaggerating the likelihood) or some confounder is at work. I would like to see a vote cheat scenario that would make this work.

    Northumberland may be crooked, but it is also of very modest size, so a statistical anomaly is more likely. The others are, by and large, very large counties mostly around Philly.

    In PA, only registered voters can obtain a mail in ballot. Registering is, therefore, the pre-requisite. The process seems superficially secure.
    https://www.votespa.com/Register-to-Vote/Pages/How-to-Register-to-Vote.aspx
    The processing is performed by the county registration office. That appears to be the potential weak link. It isn’t clear to me what cross checks are performed. Additional statistical evidence may be found in distributions of last 4-digits of the SSN or the PA drivers license. Also of interest would be how many marked the box for an alternate.

    The obvious solution is to audit the voter roles. Off the top of my head, I would randomly sample county
    -In person votes
    -Mail in votes
    -The voter registration role

    Voter registration provides a base rate of bad registrations. In person and mail in provide
    1) measures of potential fraud level, and
    2) an indication of divergence between in person vs mail fraud

    The safest fraud mechanism might be to identify non-voters for whom one can obtain a SSN. It’s easy to verify if they are registered. This is as easy as getting employment records or one of the data breaches that exposed most of the country

    If I were going to steal votes, fake ID would not be my only method. I’d target a small enough percentage so that it would be hard to detect, and if found would be considered too small to flip the election. Other methods would include harvesting
    1) grannies at the care homes
    2) homeless,
    3) any group of low interest voters

    It’s possible that the PA system is secure. But it is not obvious, and I doubt it. I suspect a modest amount of effort and sophistication could manufacture votes far more efficiently than campaign ads.

    The simplest partial solution includes
    1) elector by congressional district, this prevents running up the score,
    2) at-large (for the two extra electors) by majority of districts, again running up the score won’t help

    This approach acknowledges fraud will happen, but contains damage.

    Calling this achievement “Kushnerism” is probably giving too much credit to Kushner. It’s really a reversion to mean. Midwestern whites being their usual flighty, swing-votey selves, black and Hispanic males realizing that Donald Trump is their kind of guy.

  72. Outside of the 11th Congressional District (where Max Rose lost re-election) there was no organized GOTV in NYC, so the votes could go their own way naturally.

    Demographics are drifting slightly right in NYC as blacks and Hispanics are supplanted by less-overwhelmingly-Democrat-voting Asians and outright Republican-leaning Orthodox Jews and Eastern Europeans.

    2021 will be interesting as the Albany and City Hall left-wing supermajority gets to work. Asians and Eastern Europeans are going to be cut from 90% of Stuyvesant and Bronx Science to 25%.

    Every reasonably reasonable, non-politically crazy person or couple under 50 now has at least one friend who is militantly and shriekingly gay, les, non-binary, POC or angry feminist pro-abortion zealot. In the face of the constant high-drama haranguing from these friends, it’s easy to be drawn to their side or just go along rather than put their rhetoric to any critical test.

    These high-drama friends hysterically claim that a GOP president and conservative Supreme Court can’t wait to ban their lifestyle and send them to the camps. So you think, I feel bad that they’re so afraid and so I’ll stand with them when I vote. So these reasonable people end up voting for more crime, higher taxes, Section 8 housing and homeless people in your ATM vestibule. They may have conservative friends too, but these folks do not complain all the time, they keep things closer to the vest.

    In business you concentrate like a laser on profiting from ONE thing you have a competitive advantage in. Trump had white men, but he wasn’t their Lord and Master. Kushnerism assumed they were in the bag no matter what, and by failing to counter the racism (‘fine people’) accusations, Kushner lost the enough white men while runing after not decisive gains in other demographics that Trump lost the election. Freakin Tom Brady (who Trump wanted Ivanka to marry) could have worked out how to win.

    Trump could have had that kind of authority that comes with the settled will of the people that he was their leader. Explaining his voting for Biden, Stephen Walt the foreign policy expert and critic of Trump admitted Trump’s instincts were better than Biden’s, but said Trump had forfeited the right to lead. Trump made mistakes like over ‘fine people’, but none were fatal. His Achilles heel was his daughter who he clearly always adored. It is tragic that Ivanka skewed her father’s judgement, which is the only explanation for the Donald giving responsibility to Jared Kushner, who is truly an idiot. The Michael Lewis book about Trump assesses Kushner as “one of those people who thinks that, because he is rich, he must also be smart”. I am sure a term in Club Fed (he is going to be easy to pin something on) will enlighten Jared on a few things.

    “they didn’t notice mass deportations of illegal aliens that are benighting so much of America.”

    This! It was Trump’s number one campaign promise over and over. He was going to send them back “on the first day.” Doing that wouldn’t take years of wall construction, or special funding from congress or any new laws — just enforcing the laws already on the books. This was the primary reason I voted for him. It didn’t happen, but the promises kept coming. “Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.” Etc., etc., etc. Four years of disappointment.

    Let n (between 1 and 365) be the number of people in the room. The strategy is to find the probability p that no pair among these n people have matching birthdays. The probability that at least one pair has the same birthday is then 1-p.

    Consider the people in turn. The first person is born on one of 365 days (this simplification ignores leap years). There is a 364/365 chance the second person has a different birthday from the first. There is a 363/365 chance the third person has a different birthday from the first two. And so on.

    So p=(365/365)*(364/365)*…*+((365-n+1)/365). Set 1-p as you wish and solve for n.

    Staten Island is Trump County USA. Richmond County, NY (Staten Island) was Trump’s best county in the entire nation in the 2016 GOP primaries (when there were still other candidates competing): 81% Trump. General election turnout skyrocketed for Trump to numbers never seen before in both 2016 and 2020. Trump increased his SI vote # and %.

    This kind of random datum divorced of context can often mislead. Staten Island did not give Biden a bump. 2020 result basically the same, but mail vote greatly increased D ‘turnout’ (as it did everywhere) to ‘bump’ Biden: lost by a margin 0.18% less than Hillary: Hillary lost SI by 15.09%, Biden lost SI by 14.91%.

    One may also misleadingly say Staten Island liked Obama. But percentages don’t tell the real story at all; raw vote totals show Romney was the Repub SI really hated+Sandy effect; 2012 Obama ‘won’ SI with fewer votes than Obama lost SI with in 2008.

    The in-person 2020 Election Day result already saw Trump soar to break his own 2016 record vote total. Before a single mail ballot was counted, Staten Island’s result was 61.44% Trump (110,094 votes) to 37.51% Biden (67,223 votes).

    Staten Island Presidential Election Results % and # of Votes:
    2000
    DEM 51.94% Gore 73,828

    What’s interesting is that COVID actually helped the ruling party in most advanced democracies.

    I think a key difference in the United States versus other “advanced democracies” is that the United States isn’t a single unified government holding all power, but rather a nation with layers of government (where the layers are not merely administrative arms of the central government). So the President himself couldn’t actually direct the totality of a cohesive pandemic response and had to defer in large measure to State governments in the persons of 50 governors, while the public had a tendency to blame the President for all of the bad and credit him for none of the good. Trump got the blame for both deaths (the government didn’t do enough!) and the economic carnage (the government did too much!) simultaneously. Unfortunately, the proximity between the pandemic and the Presidential election guaranteed that Democratic governors of some of the largest States were never going to play nice with the President to get a handle on the pandemic.

    This is the easiest type of vote fraud to prove and thus the worst idea. If I got to the polls and was told that I already voted, I’d be really pissed and would make a big stink, go to the press, police, etc. Maybe there are security cameras and they can play back who voted in my place. Maybe I come in only 1 minute later and the guy is still there in the voting booth for the cops to arrest. The poll workers can testify, etc. You would think that there would be at least ONE provable case.

    The most likely means of ballot stuffing in big cities consists of partisan poll workers locking the doors at the close of polls and simply ringing up votes for registered voters who didn’t make it to the polling place all day. That way there’s little chance that the illegal votes will be detected, and if someone who was registered but didn’t go to the polls finds out later that someone voted for him and is upset enough to make a stink, they’re still not going to have evidence to do anything about it.

    That’s now voting districts in Philadelphia had 102% voter turnout for Obama’s reelect – it was unmistakably acts of ballot stuffing carried out by low IQ machine politics hangers-on who goofed and punched the button a few too many times.

    In 2024, they’ll remove the Republican candidate from the ballot.

    Same argument as keeping the Greens etc. out of the debates: Hey, we already know they won’t win, so why waste our time?

    Ross, you and Jack are both right. A citizen can make a major fuss. But there’s no guarantee that the press, government HR, or any other entity will respond.

    At most the citizen will get is an e-mail “ Thank you for your concern”.

    What’s rich? Trump’s tax cuts for the rich actually raised taxes for the 200-400 K income bracket. Who voted against him for that reason.

    The tax cuts must have benefitted only the mega mega mega rich.

    Right. Capping the SALT deduction at $10k bit a lot of people in blue states in the butt, and many of them were not making $200k. Local property taxes can be as high as 2.21% in NJ which means you will be paying more than $10k on at 500K house.
