Nebraska splits electoral votes

Nebraska splits 3 electoral votes.  So... maybe he doesn't want one of those?

Tweet lacks important context. Shocking, I know.

Jaysus, Subby. It's called the District Method. Both Nebraska and Maine split their Electoral College votes according to congressional districting maps. Maine has two, Nebraska has 3. You could give Trump shiat for saying "both" while in NE since there are three, I suppose. But he's more educated than you about how votes are allocated there.

ZZ9 Plural Z Alpha: Nebraska splits electoral votes


as much as it pains me to say, but Trump really isn't wrong here.  he'll win two of the state's electoral votes, and wants the third so he thinks of it as two Nebraskas.

but if he wanted to be technically correct (the best kind), he should have said that he wants "all three Nebraskas"

/either way, he's still an idiot

That's all we need. More duplicates. Like two Carolinas and two Dakatos aren't enough! Next some idiot will divide California into North and South Cali or Blue and Red California.

Cali is a city in Colombia. It is not a state in the United States of America.

And enough of Northern California is blue that it wouldn't matter if it was split north and south. The trumpistas would still be outnumbered.

Trump is trying to get 1 Nebraska electoral vote in District 2. He presumably has the other EVs sewn up, just trying to thread the needle to victory.

538 now has Georgia & Iowa in blue, huh.

Or he could say both/all three districts, rather than sounding like a dipshiat who doesn't know anything.

Christ, Obama said "fifty-seven" instead of "forty-seven" one time, and the right brings it up for more than a decade. This dumb piece of shiat can't go five minutes without making an ass of himself and they love him to death.

Maine and then Nebraska. Trump's people seem to think he can get it close and push it over by these two EVs?

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Maine and then Nebraska. Trump's people seem to think he can get it close and push it over by these two EVs?


No, but he can get a crowd and pretend he's campaigning.

Good luck drawing a big crowd in the actually in-play states without protests ruining his mood. This is all, and has always been, about his fragile, fragile ego.

Yeah, we can't really call it cognitive decline, because the baseline was so low to begin with.

Huh, we always counted by Mississippi's, but I guess you can use Nebraska's if you want.

He knew he would get this reaction.

He has an explanation preplanned that makes people with that reaction look stupid.

I'm sure this is how someone already explained things to him, it would just confuse him to tell him something different now.

Not push it over, but winning one is probably a part of any tied EV scenario, in which case he would win the House vote.

In that case, he should have said electoral voters.

Don't be silly, tRump didn't know these rare facts and specific points, these things are just people trying to explain his ignorance.

You and about 33% of America.

You'd think they'd teach this stuff in school and make it a requirement to pass the class they to graduate.  Some sort of Government class or something.

Feel free to comment about 40 years of Republican attacks on public schooling as the reason why Americans are ignorant.

I was trying to make a mental list of things that could entice me to stand in place for several hours in 10 degree outdoor weather.

Listening to a wheezing flapjack in the death throes of a apparently failing campaign ponderously recite right wing talking points is like 7th at best.

You really think Trump actually knows that?  Seriously?  LOL While you're at it, I've got a bridge to sell you.  It's in downtown New York City; great view of the surrounding area.  I'm selling it cheap, too!  Only $150,000!

Good effort, but you didn't circle Nebraska on there.

/Nebraska has 5 EVs, not 3.
//3 by district, 2 statewide

By "more educated than you" I assume you mean "Trump heard a little tidbit about how Nebraska can split its electoral votes, so he'll just blurt something out to sound smart." Can we all agree that Trump definitely didn't read about it somewhere?
