2016's Person of the Year: Donald Trump

Ron Matthews | 01 January, 2017, 04:44

The most obvious example is California, the largest state in the union, which voted for Hillary Clinton by a margin of nearly two to one. Talk about dreaming! The reason Trump won the election was because many of his voters believed Hillary would be worse.

Interestingly, 59% of likely voters think Mr. Trump will "significantly dismantle" Mr. Obama's governing legacy, and 45% said that would be a good thing while 43% said it would not. The private server/email issue, and how she responded to it, just reinforced her already well established reputation for not being candid and transparent.

The selling point of the Clinton was supposed to be her experience. She lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to Congress and to the citizens of our country. One of the most notorious internet rumors of the 2016 presidential campaign, that there was a pedophile ring in the Clinton campaign, with code words embedded in the hacked emails of Clinton campaign manager John Podesta, is seen as "probably" or "definitely" true by more than a third of American adults. No, not Barack Obama.

In an email sent to supporters Monday, Clinton said that "while we didn't achieve the outcome we sought, I'm proud of the vision and values we fought for and the almost 66 million people who voted for them". I voted for Donald Trump because he isn't a female. "Vast areas of MI and Pennsylvania had people voting against Clinton for just that reason". Both letters could use some serious fact checking. Clinton voters are skeptical about any link between vaccines and autism. An article in The Huffington Post, no less, debunked that theory. Here is a candidate who can barely discuss anything without lying (fact). It's a consummation devoutly to be wished, but calls to change the system after George Bush lost the popular vote in 2000 went nowhere.

This means that if enough people in your home state disagree with your choice, your vote does not count! Trump won the clear majority of states in the nation.

CNN reports the President-elect earned 304 votes from the Electoral College on Monday, December 19 - well over the 270 votes he needed to secure the position.

Reasons Why Ohio State Will Win the Fiesta Bowl
Weber rushed for more than 100 yards in three of OSU's first four games, but has done that only once since October 1. Barrett is the best quarterback Clemson will face, you'd be wrong according to Clemson safety Jadar Johnson.

We can summarize the Trump-Romney and Clinton-Obama comparisons in one map where we see, predominantly, dark red indicating Trump held onto Romney's victories and improved upon them, while Clinton was unable to match Obama's popular vote totals in many states.

Michigan's partial recount did reveal voting irregularities, but only in Detroit where Hillary won 95 percent of votes reported. Not because of Russian hacks and Comey letters. I'm an Islamic terrorist, and voted Clinton.

2016 marks the end of eight years during which a self-reverential president who confidently declared his policies to be America's future and his critics on the "wrong side of history" presided over historic national and state political humiliations that will define his inglorious legacy.

Give him a chance, and if he doesn't perform, I will join you in getting rid of him in four years. And during the 2008 campaign I produced plenty of cartoons lampooning the Clinton.

As an admirer of the founders' genius, I appreciate the bind facing them in 1787, when they gathered in Philadelphia to stitch a Constitution from the fraying threads of unity between the states.

Have a safe and happy New Year's eve.
