Over and over again Donald Trump was thought to be misleading his followers and potential voters as he kept voicing his concerns about the possibility that the November 8 election systems were rigged and rampant with voter fraud in certain sections of key states. He was even asking his supporters to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity at voting booths around the country. The DNC was furious over his allegations of the voting apparatus being rigged to where it sought redress through the court systems because they became convinced that the RNC along with Donald Trump were deliberately making these claims in order to depress the vote in minority dominant districts.
Frankly, I was at a loss to explain Mr. Trump’s paranoia about rigged voting systems and his attitude about publicly not wanting to automatically accept a favorable outcome for Hillary Clinton. That is until now! According to MSNBC, Donald Trump garnered 29% of the Hispanic vote which is a higher percentage than what Mitt Romney won in 2012, but Mr. Romney was not pledging mass deportations, promising to build a wall on our southern border, and dishing a Hispanic hero, Jorge Ramos.
I was having a hard time accepting this result as credible. Just prior to the 11/8/16 election results this is what the street was believing ( as per numerous Politico reports):
“Early-vote statistics from battleground states with large Hispanic populations show record turnout among a bloc that has voted at a lower rate than whites or blacks in past elections. If, as some polls suggest, Hispanic voters are supporting Hillary Clinton by blowout margins, these numbers could sink Trump in a handful of states that are essential to his path to 270 electoral votes.”
But could Donald Trump be right? I was pondering how could the voting possibly be rigged when there are so many voting locations throughout the country. Then I remembered watching a CNN News show awhile back where experts were discussing there being problems with voting machines.
I am certain that no one was more surprised than Donald Trump that he was winning the elections during the evening of November 8, 2016, based on his own internal polling. Later, it was when I learned from MSNBC TV that Donald Trump had garnered 29% of the Hispanic vote that I started wondering if Donald Trump was onto something that the rest of us hadn’t even suspected.
This does not mean that these figures are inaccurate but it is what started me asking the question, is it realistically possible to rig votes on a large scale basis? And the answer is, YES!
What I want to know was who was putting these thoughts about voter fraud into his head? Whoever this party was, he /she / or they know something that the rest of us don’t.
So here is where I am beginning my research which was easier than I had anticipated. Anyone who uses Google to look up information about problems with U.S. voting machines will find pages upon pages of the following:

The following is Michael Moore’s parting shot: “Take over the Democratic Party and return it to the people. They have failed us miserably,” Moore wrote. “Fire all pundits, predictors, pollsters and anyone else in the media who had a narrative they wouldn’t let go of and refused to listen to or acknowledge what was really going on. Those same bloviators will now tell us we must ‘heal the divide’ and ‘come together.’ They will pull more hooey like that out of their ass in the days to come. Turn them off.”
