Thoughts On: Russian Influence in the Election

Yes, Russia influenced an American election. Here’s why…

Donald J. Trump won Michigan by 11,612 votes, Wisconsin by 22,871, and Pennsylvania by 68,236. That is a total of 102,719 votes. Prior to the “Podesta emails“, Clinton had a significant or out side the margin or error lead in the polls in all 3 states. In the 3 weeks following the release of the Russian hacks, the race tightened. She started falling or Trump started pulling undecided voters.

A modest 2% change in voting in Michigan is 95,000+ votes (8x the margin of victory). A 2% change in voting in Pennsylvnia is 118,984 votes (1.74x the margin of victory). So, yes, it is VERY likely the Russian hacks influenced the election. How much? We can never know. But, a 1.5% change means Hillary Clinton is president. A 3% change is more than enough to drastically change an election. A 3% change means she wins WI, PA, MI, FL, and possibly NC.
