Here are Shipwreckedcrew's numbers for Seattle--read it and weep for your country. Please note, btw, that Shipwreckedcrew is reporting here the total number of votes received--not the winning margin. It's scary:
So who are the nitwits that couldn’t see the potential consequences of their actions, and how did they get elected?
As I noted, there are 9 Council members — 7 are elected from districts, and 2 are elected “at-large.” Seattle has approximately 750,000 residents and assuming each district has approximately the same population, each council person elected from a district represents about 105,000 people.
Lisa Herbold won her most recent election in 2019 with 20,000 votes.
Tammy Morales won her most recent election 2019 with 16,000 votes.
Kshama Sawant won her most election in 2019 with 22,000 votes.
Alex Petersen won his most recent election in 2019 with 17,000 votes.
Deborah Juarez won her most recent election in 2019 with 19,500 votes.
Dan Strauss won his most recent election in 2019 with 24,000 votes.
Andrew Lewis won his most recent election in 2019 with 16,000 votes.
Theresa Mosqueda won her most recent election to an at-large seat in 2017 with 121,000 votes.
Lorena Gonzalez won her most recent election to an at-large seat in 2017 with 146,000 votes.
24,000 votes — less than 25% of the population of the City Council District — is sending these idiots into office.
The 121,000 votes city-wide received by Theresa Mosqueda represents only 16% of the total population of Seattle.
You get the leadership you vote for.
That should be sobering, because only about half of Americans vote in national elections. On the other hand, here's a reminder from Don Surber--Good news for Trump voters. Surber quotes a professor of some sort, who quotes a Fox News poll:
Arbour wrote, "Democrats seem very enthusiastic about a candidate this fall. But that candidate is Donald Trump. Democratic voters want him out of office, and they are indeed enthusiastic about making that happen."
Sure, just like Republicans wanted Obama out in 2012. How'd that work out?
Indeed, Arbour's own column undercut his argument, as he wrote, "Our June Fox News poll found that 62% of Trump’s voters say that their motivation for voting is 'enthusiasm for your candidate to win.' Only 31% of Biden voters say the same about their motivation."
But, Arbour argued, Biden raised more money in the past couple of months.
Hillary spent twice as much as Donald John Trump in 2016. Again, I ask, how'd that work out?
What we're seeing with the polls is a massive voter suppression effort by Dems, to discourage Trump voters from turning out. It doesn't appear to be working. What effect will all the Antifa/BLM shenanigans have on turnout and voting? How many non-voters became Trump voters in 2016? Will they be encouraged by events to repeat? Remember 1968!
