October 27th 2020, 3:57 pm President Trump claims credit for surge in search queries
There’s no doubt President Trump can direct the flow of social media conversations with no more than a statement of his own.
He’s done it throughout his term as president.
Now he says he was the trigger for a Google search trend, “can I change my vote?” https://platform.twitter.com/embed/index.html?dnt=true&embedId=twitter-widget-0&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1321042229838909441&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.infowars.com%2F&theme=light&widgetsVersion=ed20a2b%3A1601588405575&width=500px
Strongly Trending (Google) since immediately after the second debate is CAN I CHANGE MY VOTE? This refers changing it to me. The answer in most states is YES. Go do it. Most important Election of your life!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 27, 2020
In some cases, the answer is yes.
It depends on the particular state’s requirements and procedures for voting.
Fox News pointed out on Tuesday that some 60 million people already have cast ballots for next Tuesday’s election.
The report said searches for “can I change my vote” peaked on Tuesday.
“One of the subregions where the phrase began trending at one point was in Delaware, the state Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden represented in the Senate for 36 years,” Fox said. “Other subregions included battleground states such as Maine, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Iowa, Wisconsin and Arizona, according to Trend data at various points throughout Tuesday morning.”
Talk-radio host Rush Limbaugh lamented the fact that so many already have voted, because he believes sometimes influential developments in an election don’t occur until late in the campaign.
He cited the new evidence of influence peddling by Joe Biden through his son Hunter’s business deals.
Limbaugh said some assume the millions who voted early just couldn’t wait to express their hatred of President Trump.
“I’ve been asking myself, why is that the conventional wisdom? Why couldn’t it just as easily be that there are gazillions of Trump people who are fed up and have been fed up for four years over the abject attempt to assassinate him? They ran a coup operation which is part of a smaller subset the overall political assassination they have attempted against Donald Trump for the past four years and even five, if you want to include 2016, the campaign year. It has been a veritable political assassination attempt,” Limbaugh said.
