14. How do you know that a majority of white women voted for Trump?

 

The vote as counted by voting machines, all of them, as they as now programmed and used, are either impossible to check to make sure they counted the votes correctly (touch screens w/o paper) or they are never recounted or checked statistically to make sure they counted properly.

Until we can be sure of the actual vote count we really can't say anything about what groups voted for a particular candidate.

HAND-COUNTED PAPER BALLOTS are the gold standard in fair elections. Ireland just threw away all their machines, sold them as scrap metal, which is really about all they're worth. Same thing happened in Germany after 2009 when Germany's Supreme Court for constitutional questions outlawed the use of voting machines. If you want a DEMOCRACY, the justices said, you can't count the vote on easily hacked and unverified voting machines.

Here's an article about the court decision in Germany in 2009 if you're interested:
