I am a great believer in the notion that almot everybody has made up their minds to which candidate they're gonna vote for due to 1 or 2 things they want to see done in any election.The difference is a minority of people are having the loudest media coverage to create a false sense of majority... How many people do you know in real life who subscribe to the idea that there are 50 genders for example? 0! That's how many! Yet people somehow keep raging about that all over the internet!
And this goes both ways as well! I don't know a single conservative who is a racist nutjob talking about how guns are great and we should arm teachers, granted that's a us thing but I don't believe they are a majority!
We are getting manipulated into thinking that the enemy is the other person with these false ideals and that our values in society are getting threatened... This has long bypassed the united states, they tried the same tactics in France in our last elections where the focus was not each candidate's programs or planned course of action but rather what they represented... Like the repeat Macron big money, deep state, bankers Vs le Pen the racist, extreme right, ultra conservative!
The lines between reality and fiction are quite blurred as well where fake news catches on like wildfire getting pushed by specific targeting in the case of CA as well (they bragged about it) to people who are meant to get outraged by this... When you are angry at someone, an idea or some thing, it gets a lot easier to leave logic aside and think solely with your emotions!
What has won these elections for trump and what continues to give him support is the fact that reality doesn't matter anymore... It's that people got manipulated into believing their liberal friends or cousins or whatever are far more dangerous to their way of life than say China or Russia... You want to call this social engineering be my guest, I call this manipulation!
Reality should matter, the truth should be the driving force behind our choices! And people should not be this easy to manipulate... Yet this is the reality we now live in!
For example, myself, no matter how much I dislike bassil and where FPM is going, am clearly voting FPM in 30 days. No matter what scandals or trolls or whoever says look at all the bas stuff.. we all know the alternatives and their worth.
Same goes for the us. U think that the states that flipped did it because rusian trolls? No they flipped because trump wasvtelling them am gonna bring u jobs, am gonna invest in infrastructure. In other dtates they voted for him becsuse he told them nobody's gonna take ur guns away.
Sme for hillary voters. U can easily pinpoint 2-3 issues and forget about all the rest.
What tech did was to pinpoint better who thise people were so their fears and aspirations were better matched.
But none of those were swayed by trolls or sjws ir alt rights. Well lets say 99% deman fi wahad ahbal b kel 3aylé
