Putin is really amazing. He even got big gains for candidates most people have never heard of for state offices throughout Wisconsin and rural Minnesota. Since the polls were faulty, maybe the amazing Putin 'hacked into' them too

That Putin is really amazing. He even got big gains for candidates with names most people have never heard of for state offices throughout Wisconsin and rural Minnesota. They say these hayseed voters are so stupid they can barely read--though no one mentioned that when they voted Democrat:

Wisconsin: "Republicans increased majorities in the state legislature."

May 13, 2017, "Wisconsin Republicans embrace President Trump at state convention," AP, via Fox6now.com, Wisconsin Dells 

"It...gave Republicans a chance to bask in huge electoral wins both in Wisconsin and nationally last year. President Trump was the first Republican presidential nominee to carry Wisconsin since 1984, U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson won re-election and Republicans increased majorities in the state Legislature.

Minnesota: "Trump’s coattail effect was big for down-ballot candidates in some Minnesota districts."

"Trump’s coattail effect was big for down-ballot candidates in some Minnesota districts: after all, he came within 1.5 percentage points of Democrat Hillary Clinton in Minnesota, where a Republican hasn’t won electoral votes since 1972."

2/13/17, "Democrats spent more than Republicans on the 2016 legislative election and lost seats. Was it all a waste?" MinnPost.com, Greta Kaul

Since the polls were faulty, maybe the amazing Putin "hacked into" them too.

Nov. 13, 2016, "Putting the Polling Miss of the 2016 Election in Perspective," NY Times

It was the biggest polling miss in a presidential election in decades. Yet in many ways, it wasn't wholly out of the ordinary."

"But the state polls were a different story. They systematically underestimated Donald J. Trump's standing in the Upper Midwest and Northeast. His strength there was enough to make him the president....  

She (Hillary) barely even campaigned in Maine, Wisconsin or Minnesota, and visited Michigan only in the last week of the race.

Yet in the end, her polling lead proved illusory. 

All of these states have something in common: They have a large number of white voters without a college degree. Mr. Trump also outperformed the polls in other mostly white and rural states, whether Alaska, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri or Indiana."...

Comment: "Close" vote in Minnesota was certified for Hillary with a margin of only 43,795 votes in Nov. 2016 yet on Jan. 26, 2017, votes were still being verified. "Minnesota is a same day registration state, and more than 500,000 voters register on the day of a presidential election."...The state certified in Nov. 2016 that Hillary won but as of Jan. 26, 2017, no one really knew who won Minnesota. Thousands who registered and voted on the same day had yet to be verified by the state. 1/26/17, "Did Donald Trump Carry Minnesota?" Powerline, John Hinderaker 

As noted at top of this post, "Trump’s coattail effect was big for down-ballot candidates in some Minnesota districts: after all, he came within 1.5 percentage points of Democrat Hillary Clinton in Minnesota, where a Republican hasn’t won electoral votes since 1972." 2/13/17, "Democrats spent more than Republicans on the 2016 legislative election and lost seats. Was it all a waste?" MinnPost.com, Greta Kaul


No recount was demanded of "close" vote in Minnesota. Recounts were only demanded in "close" states won by Trump such as Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.
