  1. One would hope with this advantage the political landscape for the middle-class would improve. The problem is the Republicans are being paid by the powers that be just like the Democrats. Hopefully, with Trump, this betrayal will be reduced.

  2. Partisan Democrats say lots of stupid things, in part because they only converse with each other.

    A county level map would give you a better idea of what’s up. The Democrats win the 1st tier metropolitan zones (Phoenix, Dallas, Houston, and Atlanta partial exceptions) and likely most 2d tier cities (Cincy, Richmond, Oklahoma City, and Salt Lake City notable exceptions), while Republicans take the more provincial cities and the exurban, small town, and rural zones. Democrats perform satisfactorily in the last sort of communities only in New England and adjacent areas, the California coast, a string of counties in the Deep South (with lots of blacks) and two other string in Texas and New Mexico (with lots of Chicanos).

  3. You could break it down precinct by precinct. I also wander if you broke it down by average homeowner property value (regionally adjusted) what it would look like.

  4. It is painful to see New Hampshire painted blue. We have a Republican Governor Elect, and for some time now a State House and Senate in Republican hands. Unfortunately and inexplicably, four Democrats going to DC. Trump v. Clinton still not decided with a merely a few tenths of a percent apart. Our voter identification is quite lax and we share the lugubrious distinction of sharing with Nevada and Vermont the lowest levels of weekly attendance at religious services.

  5. WPW, is there talk of a recount for NH? Southern NH must be loaded with residents who fled from Taxachusetts and then vote to turn the state into the one they escaped. Nevada is loaded with Californians who have done the same. Maybe NC to a lesser extent.
    When Fox stopped posting numeric updates on PA, MN, NH and MI in the wee hours of Wed. we all figured votes were being manufactured for Hillary.

  6. I am sick about VA thanks to liberal Northern VA (there’s been talk of another state up there). Being Veterans’ Day, the priest’s homily at Mass was on veterans’ service and sacrifice and then he turned to the President Elect and said he sensed that Trump was in the process of conversion. I believe it to be so, but prayers for him must continue.

  7. Given this electoral college map of the United States, there is a petition circulating about the internet (Move On or one of those liberal web sites) asking electoral college memebers to vote for Hillary even if the people of there state voted form Trump. The reason being given is that Trump is unfit because of his foul mouth and bad bahavior (of course, we would have to exclude Hillary too as well as most politicians of any political party, but that won’t happen). So my question is this: what is the chance of the electoral college actually doing something as foolish as this? And when it validates the electoral college vote later on, would the Congress actually go along with such ridiculousness? Hillary did say in her concession speech that the ultimate glass ceiling hasn’t been broken yet, but it will be, and maybe sooner than we think, which of course got me to thinking. (BTW, Margaret Thatcher as Prime Minister of the UK already broke that glass ceiling for all you liberal progressive nit wit spoiled brats out there.)

  8. what is the chance of the electoral college actually doing something . . . foolish

    There’s no chance of that happening since most states penalize faithless electors to one degree or another.

  9. CAM: We know of a few recounts in progress for the NH House where the vote differences were as little as a dozen but not for high profile contests. Ayotte conceded after losing by about 1,200 votes but as far as I know, the Trump v Clinton vote is yet to be official.

  10. Mr. McClarey has said many times that there are no permanent political victories. This one isn’t permanent either. In four years, New Hampshire, Virginia, Nevada and Colorado are ripe for the picking, maybe New Mexico, too. McAuliffe the Crook will be replaced next year (Virginia elects its governors to one term only) and their election is the year after the presidential election. New Jersey has the same situation.

    2018 will tell us much. Obumblercare was one of the issues that turned the election to President Elect Trump. Democrat Senators that supported Obumblercare or refused to get rid of it could be in for a world of hurt. Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Bobby Casey of Pennsylvania and Claire McCaskill of Missouri are three senators the RNC should paint a bullseye target on right now and start looking for candidates to throw them out. I’m sure there are more, as there are 25 Democrats up for reelection to the Senate in 2018. Tim Kaine is another one the GOP should target. Trump could reduce the Dem influence on Northern Virginia, throwing Virginia back in play.

    As for governors… Tom Wolf Cub is the only Democrat who got elected Governor in a GOP wave in 2014. He proceded to demand tax increases and anti gas drilling measures. Most gas drilling in in Western Pennsylvania….where only Agony (Allegheny) County voted majority Democrat. I think he is burnt toast.

    Interesting that liberals are just beginning to rediscover the Constitution. Of course, that is precisely what the Electoral College is for. So, would not the sane outcome be President Pence?

  12. I see you have posted an updated electoral map with all states assigned, including the last three MI, AZ & AZ. I have been searching since after the election for a final tally and have found none- for either electoral or popular. I read AZ won’t be certified til next week. They are counting ballots(?). It is easy enough to figure the electoral count by adding MI & AZ to Trump. But many sites and media outlets are reporting Hillary has the popular vote and making much of that. Everywhere I looked they still had figures from 11/9. My suspicious mind says they are leaving that incomplete picture hanging out there on purpose to benefit Hillary and delegitimize Trump. Anyone know where most up to date figures can be found? Or why there is a delay?

  13. Hillary has the popular vote beause of illegal aliens voting in California and New York.
    .
    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  14. In four years, New Hampshire, Virginia, Nevada and Colorado are ripe for the picking,
    .
    So are Arizona, North Carolina, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Missouri, Ohio and Florida.

  15. Yes- thank you for that link. Electoral should be 232D- 306R which is sizable win. I am hoping that final popular tally would put Trump beyond question. I mean the questions and innuendos of MSM.
    We all know Clinton had the help of 200,000 felons granted voting privileges at the eleventh hour in VA thanks pal McCauliffe
