What really happened in Election 2016 is still very poorly understood, and that is by design...because it is going to happen for the next forty to fifty years. Political models and media influence do not comprehend the defection vote...
Included on the list were possible threats to their hegemony. And number one was, "one man, one vote."
In 2008, Obama's election did nothing to prove Wall Street's fears correct, however, as during his sudden rise during the campaign season in 2007, they recognized that he could win, and immediately Goldman Sachs contributed $1 million to him, and this appears to have inspired Obama's further shielding of the architects of Globalism from prosecution upon his inauguration...
But during the 2016 election, the D party ignored the hopes of its voters when Obama failed to act against Wall Street for 8 years, and even shielded members of both his staff, and his party, from inquiry in a variety of scandals.
So, the defection vote figured as the determining factor, although this time, for an opposing party.
Defection or Revolt Vote means when a traditionally d or r voter crosses party lines to vote for another candidate.
And the revolt vote continues to figure in more and increasing prominence, and by the time that the Baby Boomers will be either too old or too infirmed to dominate the vote, until the current corrupt elements driving both parties from Wall Street can rely upon present models to again, be accurate, 2022-2054, the role of swing states, and the current dogmas even driving the relatively newer online understandings of politically exploiting the internet, are simply not going to be accurate.
This also reflects a lack of intellect in the Plutocracy, itself.
Hegemony by influence will simply fail to reach an increasingly disillusioned and disproportionately numbered gen X and millennial voting rank. And the appeals aimed at shoring support in swing states, such as Doug Jones, Alabama Senatorial candidate receiving Joe Biden's help by a personal stint stumping for his campaign, represent antiquated views of politics in America, and could actually cost Jones some Republican defection against Moore, his controversial, and totally shelfable should he win, opponent.
The innovation necessary to replace, "the key battleground state" appeals solely to the industries within each of those states now.
A huge reason for the loss in 2016 by the Clinton campaign of the standby key states, Pennsylvania, Florida, W Virginia, and others, were all perfectly predictable due to the duplicitous way Obama approached economics, then dictatorially relegated the entire coal mining industry onto welfare, and into poverty.
Their defections, although shocking largely due to 538's unlawful racketeering, were not actually so, as the revolt vote and republican ticket miners, and all industries that make livings from it, stood in locked step at the ballot box.
However, as much as D voters saw Obama fail to halt the corruption in the Treasury and Federal Reserve, Trump voters are seeing clearly the veracity of the leaked Citigroup document: thus the revolt vote's most obvious quality, that we elect a person to prevent their opponent from winning, cannot prevent the disillusioning with the power-behind-the throne.
Unfortunately, this only complicates the as-of-yet unprosecuted architects of the hedge fund bailouts and real estate bubble ever seeing the prison cells they deserve to see, as meanwhile, Bob Mueller's probes arrests will undoubtedly breath false senses of securities into an antiquated public, and media's views of what really happened on election night. And it will no doubt attempt to vindicate a lot of mythology about that election, to include the fictional Russiahacked.
The press builds equally false hopes and disappointment-bound speculative formulas for Meuller's actions against President Trump. But Meuller, himself, has unclean hands.
But the gen-x and millennial voters are now in place to both observe Wall Street's dated election affecting plans, as well as what is happening in the changing role of the defection vote, as well as what that change is expressing: and possibly cause its manipulation to affect a return to a democracy that standardizes rule of law for everyone.
