Let’s Recall…the 2016 Presidential Election.

Jill Stein has been raising money for a recount in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.  The current electoral votes are Trump’s 290 to Clinton’s 232.  The electoral votes for the three states are as follows:

  • Michigan: 16
  • Wisconsin: 10
  • Pennsylvania: 20

So what if the recall over turns all three states from Trump to Clinton the total will be as follows:

  • Clinton – 278
  • Trump – 260

That is more then the electoral votes then on election night.  (That’s a big if.)  What after the recalls only some of the states changed to Clinton.  She would need to win all 3.  The break down with her winning only 2 of the 3 states would be following.

Clinton wins MI and WI

  • Clinton – 258
  • Trump – 280

Clinton wins PA and MI

  • Clinton – 268
  • Trump – 270

Clinton wins PA and WI

  • Clinton – 262
  • Trump – 276

Now look at the popular vote totals right now are

  • Clinton – 62,523,126
  • Trump – 61,201,031

That is a narrow margin with is why we need to get rid of the archaic system of the electoral college.  To do that will require an amendment that with a 2/3 majority in both the house and senate and then 3/4 of the states.  With the Republicans in control of both houses of Congress, so they won’t pass it.

There is a campaign to change that with in the Constitution called the National Popular Vote that changes the electoral vote to be covered over the whole nations votes and not a winner take all of the states.  Check that out.

#BernieHasAPosse

I was watching the Iowa Caucus and it was a nail biter.  I am a Bernie Sanders support and he had no superpac support or rich donors and trailed behind Hillary Clinton by 4/10 of a percent.  I would love if he won, but the presidential race isn’t a sprint but a marathon, and Bernie and Hillary broke from the pack.  He is on her heels and may over take the lead during Super Tuesday.  Only concern is accusation of Hillary changing the vote to her favor.  Bernie is a fighter and so is his posse and we will make sure this election is fair.  Because if it goes unchallenged then it is Florida in 2000 all over again where Al Gore decided to concede the election then staying in for the end and could of won.  The corruption in the US is getting worse.  This has to stop.  That’s why Bernie Has a Posse.
