Political divide: Guadagno won more NJ towns, but still lost to Murphy
New Jersey 101.5 ^ | December 28, 2017 | Sergio Bichao

Posted on 01/12/2018 4:26:33 PM PST by GuavaCheesePuff

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno was clobbered by Phil Murphy in November’s election. But a town-by-town map of the election results is kinder to Gov. Chris Christie’s two-time running mate.

The Republican candidate won 295 of the state’s municipalities. Murphy won 25 fewer towns.

But unlike the presidency, there’s no electoral college selecting New Jersey’s governor, so Murphy won the way it counts: total votes.

Murphy got 1.2 million votes to Guadagno’s 899,583, which was the fewest amount for a GOP nominee since 1989.

Murphy won (after promising to raise taxes in already-high-taxed NJ) because there are a lot fewer Americans here than even four years ago when Christie won re-election easily. Simply put, there are a LOT more people sitting on the wagon and a LOT less people pulling.

Before Christie was governor, even Democrat governor Jon Corzine admitted that without ILLEGAL immigration, NJ lost population (and we lost electoral votes to prove it).

NJ urban areas are 90% minorities. The Democratic Party has registered every living soul and records a vote for each of them every election day. A Republican operative counted fewer than forty voters going to the polls in a Paterson precinct a few years back. When the machines were totaled over 800 votes for the Democrat were recorded Four for the Republican. Nothing happened. It is virtually impossible for a statewide Republican candidate to win in New Jersey, New York, Illinois or California.

Pres. Trump was right. It’s a rigged system and very corrupt.

I find it very strange that a state that elected Christie twice also voted to send Booker and Menendez to the Senate; it defies logic.

Garden people can’t get enough of liberalism: even more taxes is no sweat off their backs!

At this point the exodus of Americans from NJ has been well-documented for years; the simple fact is that more and more voters aren’t taxpayers. There is a reason the Founding Fathers only wanted property owners voting; they were basically the tax base. Nobody who contributes nothing should have a say in how our contributions are spent, because if you rob Peter to pay Paul you’ll always have the support of Paul.

The gubernatorial elections are in odd years. It costs money to crank up The Democrat Machine, so they spend most of it in the even years.

(Fun fact -- the last time a Democrat was re-elected to a second term as a New Jersey Governor was Brendan Byrne in 1978. Unfortunately, the state may be too far gone to salvage anything in 4 years.)

That is my concern; I’ve lived here my whole life, and there are a lot less Americans in the densest parts of the state.

They should put a cap on how many votes any one city can get.

So the Republican running for Gov of Konnecticut won 160 of 169 towns, but the ones the Democrat won were Bridgeport, New Haven, Hartford, etc. - all of the welfare cities.
This is what the Demoncrats have done to the whole country.
If not for the genius of the electoral college....

Yes, in 2010 and 2014, Foley vs. Malloy.

It is a tricky situation.

What’s changed in recent years is a massive influx of Asian immigrants to suburban areas, especially in Central New Jersey. This has given the Democrats many new voters and also caused many white, American voters, who mostly vote for Republicans, to leave the state.

In a few years, there will be enough Indians in Central New Jersey to have their own set aside Congressional district. Indian voters are on the far left, only black voters lean more to the Democrats. That district, when it comes, will likely elect an ultra-left wing Keith Ellison type candidate.

Like most states, the cities dominate states... In Connecticut and if you look at Maine CD-1 most of the towns went for the Republican candidate..

I’m not thrilled that Indians are being trafficked here to NJ as white-collar “replacement Americans”, but I don’t assume they are all leftists. Many operate businesses, and most pay taxes - and aren’t fans of many of the populations getting freebies from those taxes. While some don’t mind harvesting the welfare populations’ taxpayer wealth transfers with their liquor stores and such, they don’t like being beaten and robbed either.

Many immigrants still come here for the traditional “American Dream”, and aren’t thrilled to watch it morph into the collectivist stagnation they thought they left behind in their Third World homelands.

Populations dominate; they are usually clustered in cities. When cities die (like Detroit), the state itself can become very Republican.

You are dead wrong. There is data about this. Indians went 80% for Obama in 2012. That’s a higher rate than any ethnic group other than blacks. Higher than Jews even. Does the fact that Jews are educated and hard working and many own business stop them from being overwhelmingly left wing and staying that way generation after generation after generation?

Look, you’re old, I’m young. I grew up with children of Indian immigrants. You didn’t. They are mostly left wing and have a deep grudge against white people. Indians are highly ethnocentric and form networks in business and workplaces to promote other Indians and exclude others. Have you ever seen a non-Indian working at an Indian owed small business? Of course not. They only hire their own. That tribal mentality pervades all South Asian cultures.

It’s really frustrating to be a young American and see older conservatives sell out on immigration over and over and over. Stop making excuses for the third world hordes. This is an invasion.

Get over these fantasies about “muh immigrants have conservative values.”

I live in a town where Indian women walk behind their men (no progressive thought there), and they pay high taxes to live here (even if they pack dozens into one house). Unlike other reliably Democrat voters, they are actually taxed - and often live in areas where they become the primary taxpayers (as Americans continue to flee NJ). I have children who have these Asians as classmates, and they were my classmates in college before that (I’m not so old); they arrived in my town decades ago before most Americans ever met any (as students for NJIT & Rutgers), and our local Boys Club is now a Hindu temple. If they have a franchise they will hire Americans; the headquarters may scrutinize documents too closely (unlike college students working in unbranded, no-name gas stations or liquor stores), and it is harder to pay those workers with cash.

It IS an invasion; how many times must I use the term “WHITE COLLAR REPLACEMENT AMERICANS” before you understand I know they are being trafficked here to replace middle class Americans? What Latino braceros did to unskilled Americans these Asians are doing to professionals, and in EVERY field - not just tech as some might assume.

I have no problem with closing the border completely (even to “skilled immigrants”) until American unemployment is 1%; I also know that won’t happen until we stop paying Americans not to work, and actually fix our schools to produce at least literate workers.
