I think I’ve come up with a universal theory of voter fraud, one that explains Obama’s (to me) inexplicable victory in 2012 as well as (to the Progressives and #NeverTrumpers) Trump’s equally inexplicable victory in 2016. This theory is not to be taken seriously, but I still like how comprehensive it is.
We start with the fact that Obama won in 2012. This was rather amazing considering that the economy was dormant, unemployment was still high, the Benghazi attack showed a resurgent Al Qaeda, the public was becoming aware of the extent of Obama’s and the Dems’ lies when it came to Obamacare, the War in Afghanistan was escalating, Syria was devolving into the worst kind of civil war while Obama quibbled about red lines, Obama had promised Putin more “flexibility,” and racial hatred was flaring in ways not seen since the Civil Rights Movement.
And yet Obama won. The polls, which cannot be trusted, claim that it’s just because voters like Obama. I don’t see it, so there must be another explanation for his victory, especially given the resurgence of the Republican brand outside of the White House.
Part One of my universal theory is that Obama won in 2012 because he had two advantages over Romney: (1) a superb “get out the vote” infrastructure in urban areas and (2) in those same urban areas, a superb “get out the illegal vote” infrastructure. This second machine reached out to all the urban illegal immigrants, dead voters, felons, and unregistered or irresponsible millennials — that is, all the people who make up the Democrat cohort and who would vote heavily in urban pockets during federal elections, if they could vote legally, if they weren’t dead, or if they weren’t sitting around in a pot haze and clinging to their safe spaces.
