We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Many observers have pointed out that had Wayne County, which contains Detroit, voted for Hillary in the same numbers as it did for Obama in 2012, Hillary would have carried Michigan. Hillary lost Michigan by about 10,000 votes.
Wayne County Presidential Election Vote
Year Democratic Republican
2016 66.8% 517,022 29.5% 228,313
2012 72.8% 595,846 26.1% 213,814
From 2012 to 2016, the Republican vote in Wayne County increased by 14,499 votes, while the Democrat vote fell by 78,824 votes. This suggests that a lot of Democrat voters in Wayne County- read Detroit- abstained from voting in 2016.
Population figures for Wayne County show that abstention wasn't the only reason for the big drop in Democrat votes in Wayne County. From 2010 to 2015, the population of Wayne County fell by an estimated 61,429 inhabitants. If we assume that that population in Wayne County fell at the same rate from 2012-2016 as it did from 2010-2015, then the population of Wayne County fell by ~ 48,000 from 2012-2016. From 2012 to 2016, there were 64,325 fewer votes cast in Wayne County.
Precisely how that drop in population translates into drop in voters, I will leave for those more expert than I. Suffice it to say that the drop in votes cast in Wayne County was due at least in part to a drop in population.
There is a parallel between what happened to Detroit and what happened to Venezuela. Socialism and dishonest thieving political leaders caused the terrible mess and loss of lives. We will never know how much money was stolen from Detroit, Michigan and American taxpayers and funneled into politicians pockets. We will never know how many Detroit citizens and people visiting or simply driving through Detroit died as a result of this misappropriation of tax revenues. We are seeing this today in Chicago. We will continue to see this as long as dishonest politicians can buy voters with free stuff paid for by taxpayers.
