The size of the crazy base

1 min read

Biden got around 81.3 million votes = 51.4% of the vote give or take

Trump got around 74.2 million votes= 46.9% of the vote

Turnout was around 67%

Those republicans that believe Trump was robbed = 77% give or take a crazy or two.

That means there are about 57.1 million Americans that will believe any old shtick.

A bit depressing really.

I notice how little the elected Republicans are saying [around 90%] are keeping silent.

Others are saying, I voted for Trump but I can count ya know.

You know what they say about keeping your gob* on silent mode?

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

*Mid 16th century perhaps from Scottish Gaelic gob ‘beak, mouth.

So 57.1m Americans are primed and ready for Fascism.
