Has the electoral system in USA failed?
Claims of interference in the electoral process flooded public media shortly after President Donald Trump was declared the winner.
Claims of interference occured before the elections. Now all the USA intelligence services are united about it and Donald has also finally accepted the truth.
The same exact people flooded public media with obama and hillarys benghazi lies before obama was re-elected. I suggest shunning any media that is "flooding" the russians hacked democracy narrative.
Claims of interference in the electoral process were expressed and reported on before the election. Mr. trump even said so long before election day.
He was talking about the democrats and Hillary Clinton rigging the election, and not foreign powers.
No, no, no, He is talking about foreign interference, stop trying to blame Hillary for more things that she had nothing to do with.
When was he saying foreign interference, it was after he won the primary he said Hillary and the DNC were going to steal the election. And they are still trying.
No. First, Bill Clinton won two elections without ever getting 50% of the vote, and Democrats didn't complain it was a failure then.
Second, the leaked emails via Wikileaks weren't by the Russians but disgruntled Democrats. The problem for Democrats isn't the leak - it is their corruption and the fact that the public now knows they are the violent thugs and elitists they regularly accuse conservatives of being. Whether Clinton's bribery or Podesta arranging violence at Trump events to blame on Trump supporters, the Democrats just keep blaming everyone but themselves.
We know the problem wasn't electoral interference by Russia because we monitored the election for potential interference by conservatives (and no one stopped Clinton from conceding). And then the DNC blamed sexism, racism, fake news ... and then, finally, blamed Russia.
The US electoral system works in a different way to many. Here the system is what's called 'First past the post' and harks back on horse-racing terminology such as 'a two horse race' when they mean the third party's turnout will be minimal (we've got two main players, a maybe and lots of minnows. That's called democracy)
On the Continent the system known as 'proportional representation' leads to hung parliaments and coalitions (that only seem to work under wartime conditions, we proved that in Britain). Politicians don't like losing, as it means they've got to sit down and work, for a change, or write their memoirs if they're famous enough. We'll soon see a spate of Hilary Clinton books.
Meanwhile Donald Trump has a job to do. let him get on with it and we'll see how many grey hairs he's got by the time the next election's here. We might see what he's made of. Ronald Reagan's spell in the White House turned out to be a double, and the Press predicted WWIII! (Show's how wrong you can be, eh?)
