President Donald Trump received a greater share of support in New York state than any Republican has since George H.W. Bush in 1988. Current results reveal that Trump secured almost 43% of the vote in New York, almost 6.5% more than he received when running against Hillary Clinton in 2016. The decreased margin of Democratic victory in New York is one of the largest numerical differences between the 2016 and 2020 presidential elections in any state.
Bush Senior received 47.5% of the vote in 1988, after which New York has voted for Democrats in double digits ever since.
Previous Republican candidates had been much more soundly defeated, with John McCain receiving 36% of the vote in 2008 and Mitt Romney getting 35%.
2020 has proven to be a difficult year for the Empire State, with New York City becoming the world epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic under Democratic leadership. Many the New York’s most prominent societal and financial elites have begun leaving the states in droves, moving to Sun Belt states such as Florida, Texas and California. As the Democratic Party increasingly aligns itself with white affluent suburbanites, the party’s model may lose its luster with longtime New Yorkers who are less than thrilled with the gradual decline of the state’s economy, as seen in states such as Ohio and Pennsylvania.
It could be that longtime New Yorkers have soured upon the consistently dismal leader provided by legacy Democrats such as Andrew Cuomo and Bill de Blasio, some of whom have taken liberal governance of the state and New York City for granted.
President Trump also wildly overperformed polls forecasting the state’s election, with no major pollster projecting Trump to win more than 36% of support in the state.
New York may eventually become for Republicans what Texas has become for Democrats- a potential game changing swing state with an eroded, historical partisan affiliation. A future Republican with the ability to win New York, as well as the Democratic ‘Blue Wall’ states in the Midwest could potentially rewrite the electoral college map.
DECISIVE VICTORY: Arizona Judge Rules State Senate Can Review 2.1 Million Ballots & Voting Software in Maricopa County
Friday morning, a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge gave the Trump Campaign and overall MAGA movement another small yet decisive victory in their ongoing legal battle in the 2020 Presidential Election. According to an article by the Associated Press, Judge Timothy Thomason ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million voter ballots and voting machines from Maricopa County, Arizona’s most popular county which flipped Arizona from Trump to Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported on Maricopa County’s Board of Supervisors and their state of perpetual non-compliance with legally issued subpoenas by the Arizona Senate. It appears that today, Judge Thomason has officially ordered that non-compliance to end, and Maricopa County must allow the Senate to proceed with their investigation.
The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors has previously argued that ballots should remain secret and not open to investigation. They see the subpoenas issued by the Senate as illegitimate and that they have no right to access the county’s voting hardware. In turn, the Senate and their legal team have argued that the constitution clearly gives the Legislature the responsibility to enforce the law and to maintain election integrity. It is the Senate’s role to ensure that Arizona elections are free, fair, and pure.
Judge Thomason seemingly agrees with the Senate on all fronts and has called the subpoenas “legal and enforceable”. In his ruling, the Judge also stated:
“There is no question that the Senators have the power to issue legislative subpoenas. The Subpoenas comply with the statutory requirements for legislative subpoenas. The Senate also has broad constitutional power to oversee elections. The Arizona legislature clearly has the power to investigate and examine election reform matters. Accordingly, the Senators have the power to subpoena material as part of an inquiry into election reform measures. As such, the Subpoenas have a proper legislative purpose. The Subpoenas also do not violate separation of powers principles. Production of the subpoenaed materials would not violate confidentiality laws.”
The rest of Judge’s Thomason’s ruling can be found here.
“We are thrilled and grateful that the judge was able to see the big picture in this whole issue,” said Arizona State Senate President Karen Fann. “That this has never been about overturning an election. This has always been 100% about voter integrity and finding the answers to all of our voters’ questions about the safety and security and validity of the Arizona electoral system.”
Maricopa County has been accused of committing mass voter fraud, discriminating against Trump voters and using hardware to manipulate votes for Joe Biden. Big League Politics has previously reported that former Maricopa County Treasurer Royce Flora had resigned from his office in disgust with the complacency Maricopa County played in the election fraud. Flora said that he plans to continue to push recall efforts against the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors for what he sees as crimes against the people of Maricopa County.
BREAKING: A judge ruled that the Arizona Senate can get access to 2.1 million ballots from Arizona’s most populous county so it can audit results of the 2020 election.
