No, Trump Won’t Win States Like New York Over Hillary. Trump has been bragging about his massive turnout, and how he will turn blue states red. It isn’t going to happen in New York. Hillary is more than doubling his vote output in New York State, even as Trump wins upward of 60 percent of the vote. No wonder, as Nate Silver reports, “Clinton’s chances of becoming the next president are now 71.4 percent, according to Betfair, the highest she’s been at any point of the election cycle.” Trump’s now going to make the same case in Pennsylvania and Delaware. He’ll likely lose both in a general election…

The System Is Rigged. Trump lies to say that the system is rigged. The real rigged system is the one that gives 95 delegates to New York, which hasn’t voted Republican since 1984, and 155 delegates to Texas, which hasn’t voted Democratic since 1976 – and New York is essentially winner-takes-all, while Texas is proportional representation, plus Texas had 2.7 million voters, while New York had significantly less than 700,000 votes total. The system is rigged for outsized impact in blue states that will not be up for grabs in November.
