Match Up Shows Trump Would Have Beat Obama In Election

Tim Alberta wrote a piece for the National Review showing that in a hypothetical match-up between Donald Trump and Barack Obama, Trump would have won the election by a small margin.

Alberta argues that Clinton didn’t lose because she failed to get the democratic base to show up, she lost because Trump was able to get Republican voters to show up in large numbers in key battleground states.

Clinton pulled about the same numbers as Obama in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, Nevada, and New Hampshire and even surpassed Obama’s 2012 vote total in Florida, a state that Obama won.

In the 2012 election Obama received 6 million more votes than Trump did in 2016, but Trump received more votes than Obama in the battleground states.

I think this is a false comparison, because the dynamics of the two elections were different.

in the 2012 election we had a good choice of candidates and then the RNC decided Romney would be our choice. It was at that time that I decided to skip voting. Romney lost because many good republicans stayed home on election day.
The RNC tried to do that again this election by trying to force Jeb Bush on us. We whole heartedly rejected that from the elitists and Carl Rove.
We witnessed Carl Rove sabotage Christine O'Donnell 2010 special election for Senate and allow the communist democrat Chris Coons get elected, all because she ran against the establishment.
2008 Sarah Palin was known for how she "Drained the swamp" in Alaska's state government and the establishment republicans and democrats alike destroyed her in the media.
I think I speak for the majority of voters when I say that WE'VE HAD ENOUGH!

Go Trump!
