In Utah, Cruz Wins With Apparent Voter Fraud Issues
Amid allegations of massive voter fraud for hand-counted ballots and widespread computer glitches for electronic voting, Ted Cruz wrangled himself another important win Tuesday night, taking Utah by a wider margin than any candidate has won any other state thus far. Meanwhile, to the south, huge voter turnout led to Donald Trump’s 19th state win. With his victory, Trump gets even closer to the 1237 delegates he needs to clinch the Republican presidential nomination, while Cruz’s win helps him stay hot on Trump’s heels. The only other candidate in the race remaining, John Kasich, didn’t even campaign in Utah or Arizona, and his results show it.
Trump was protested heavily in Arizona, where anarchists and liberal rabble-rousers shut down a freeway trying to thwart people from seeing a Trump rally over the weekend. The state is inundated with criminal immigrants, and President Barack Obama’s lazy handling of America’s border has impacted the state severely. Trump’s anti-illegal immigration stance is very popular here, including the building of The Wall. As a result, he took nearly half of the vote, with 47% of Arizona Republicans voting for him. 25% voted for Cruz, and Kasich got 10% of the vote — which was even less than Marco Rubio got. Rubio dropped out of the race after a humiliating loss in Florida, but before he did over 70,000 people in Arizona had already cast early-ballot votes for him.
In Utah, Mitt Romney and massive voter fraud helped sway the race hugely in Ted Cruz’s favor, giving him the biggest margin of victory in any state so far. Here are the reasons why the election looks to have been rigged for Cruz.
A) 50% vote count drop.
Unlike every other state in the nation, Utah’s participation in the primary process was significantly down. In 2008 and 2012, Romney drew over 200,000 votes in landslide victories. In 2016, though, Cruz won with just 118,000 votes — so with the new voting machines allowing for electronic voting this year, is it more likely that half of the Republicans who voted in the last two elections suddenly just didn’t vote — in direct opposition to the results in every other state so far — or that votes for Trump and/or Kasich were discarded?
B) Eyewitness accounts
Several reliable witnesses observed ballot-stuffing and other illegal practices during their voting experience. People given handfuls of ballots to fill out? People delivering envelopes with multiple ballots in them? One eyewitness account: http://www.godlikeproductions.com/forum1/message3126238/pg1?disclaimer=1
C) Wildly skewed results based on polling
According to the “official” record, Cruz received 69.2% of the vote, Kasich got 16.9% and Trump received 14%. This is compared to the best poll available in Cruz’s favor which showed him getting 52% of the vote. Cruz was expected to win by about 25 points, but instead won by more than 52 points, which is an astounding shift of voter sentiment in just a few days. When election results skew this far away from pre-election data gathering, something seems very awry.
At the end of the day, Trump won the night, pulling in 18 more delegates than Cruz did (58 for Arizona to 40 for Utah). And Cruz was expected to win Utah anyway, so investigating all the fraud wouldn’t likely change anything. But as often as Cruz has been caught cheating in the past, this is just one more example of the kinds of dirty tricks his organization has been involved with to make his campaign look bigger and better than it is.
