QUESTION: Do you see any validity to the Democrats crying Russia stole the election from Hillary?
ANSWER: No. People quickly forget that the polls at the time showed that the MAJORITY of Americans who had actually cast their votes early were worried about the direction of the country. They also responded that they wanted a “strong leader who can take the country back from the rich and powerful.” That was Reuters’ Election Day poll. Of course the majority of the people who voted Democrat fall into three main categories: (1) the people who live on government programs, (2) students who have not gotten a job for a living who think money falls from above, and (3) those who live in the past because their parents were Democrats so they just vote the party line even against their own self-interest as long as it hurts someone else as well.
What the Democrats are not saying is that of all the leaked emails, nobody has said they were fake or altered. They just blame Russia for leaking the emails and spilling the beans. It could have been anyone who hacked into the Democrats, but it’s juicer if it is Russia who they can demonize instead of a bunch of kids in a basement of their mother’s home.
Whoever leaked the TRUTH deserves our thanks. And as for Chuck Schumer who bad mouth’s Trump, his polls are lower than Trump. All Democrats leaders are polling below Trump. They just live in a state of denial. Obamacare is a disaster, yet they block any reform simply to protect their legacy – nothing more after the average person saw their healthcare costs double.
