In June, I explored 18 states “won” by Joe Biden in 2020 that were carried by the vote margin in one single county, meaning no other combination of Republican margins could overcome the largest Democrat county in the state, let alone any other ones.
Beginning in the 1990s, this Democrat strategy to control major urban centers completely subverted our political system, not just at the electoral college level, but all the way down to the city council, county commission, and law enforcement echelons. Certain mega-counties turned “blue” but were unable to flip their states, yet still turned into cesspools of corruption, as evidenced by the myriad election-related crimes piling up at present in Harris County, Texas, home to metro Houston.
The same system of installing Soros-backed District Attorneys, County Commissioners (or Supervisors, in the case of mega-corrupt Maricopa County, Arizona), mayors, and seemingly magistrates all the way down to dog catcher) has had major implications in destroying bedrock American cities never seen as a threat to our way of political decision making. All Americans have looked on the usual suspects for corruption with justifiable doubt, like Philadelphia. We didn’t give the same respect to Atlanta, Milwaukee, or Phoenix to be able to reach such prominence in corruption until 2020.
I recently posted that Maricopa County should be broken up into at least three counties, and not only because of how many votes it contributes (both in reality and in fraudulent totals). Super-counties receive disproportionate shares of various pork barrel spending packages, which of course are administered by the same corrupt officials being practically installed by outside spending groups. The Center for Tech and Civic Life (CTCL – “Zuck Bucks”) disproportionately funded the largest election jurisdictions to “help ensure they have the staffing, training, and equipment necessary” to maximize voter participation. It did not matter if those voters were assigned to registrations reflecting a real, eligible citizen.
In a legal sense, Maricopa’s rampant maladministration has disenfranchised the voters from Arizona’s remaining 14 counties in at least the last two elections, and most likely in 2018 as well. In 2020, Pima County, home to metro Tucson, provided the largest Democrat margin in the state, at nearly 100,000 votes in favor of Joe Biden. Maricopa’s margin for Biden was roughly 44,000, in a state decided by just over 10,000 votes, despite record Republican vote growth in this historic Republican stronghold for the incumbent. At current trajectory, if not reigned in, Maricopa County will soon supplant Pima County and within the decade become like Clark County in neighboring Nevada, which carries a larger margin for Democrats presidentially than any combination of counties in the remainder of the state can come up with.
Here are the top ten most populated counties according to the 2020 census:
Los Angeles (CA) – 10.02 million
Cook (IL) – 5.28 million
Harris (TX) – 4.73 million
Maricopa (AZ) – 4.42 million
San Diego (CA) – 3.30 million
Orange (CA) – 3.19 million
Kings (NY) – 2.74 million
Miami-Dade (FL) – 2.70 million
Dallas (TX) – 2.61 million
Riverside (CA) – 2.42 million
All of them are riddled with corruption, mostly Democrat-run, and in most cases, provide serious challenges for the rest of the state to overwhelm their local election corruption. Los Angeles and Cook account for the entire Democrat margins over the rest of the state, which gave Biden 75 “layup” electoral votes in 2020 without needing to even consider a visit to California or Illinois, respectively.
Maricopa voters, while there is still daylight, need to organize to split the county into three separate counties, because its leadership group, which gives the false security of being bipartisan, is a corrupt den of wolves destroying the American treasure of Arizona. The balkanization of metro Phoenix and the surrounding suburban area is necessary to provide greater transparency into spending, give power to constitutional law enforcement, destroy government grift and misuse of the public’s tax dollars, and, perhaps most critically, sidestep an electoral monster that contributes more than three-fifths of Arizona’s votes in statewide and presidential elections.
Keep up the great work Seth! Another spot on analysis. Thanks!
Do you think in the short term it would be advantageous for these swing states to allocate their electoral votes on a district by district basis?
At least the gop would get some electoral votes that way. In 2024, I don’t see how a gop presidential candidate can win if they lose all the electoral votes in AZ, MI, and PA. Like your post says, the large cities will find enough votes and with all 3 having dem governors (AZ pending but i’m not hopeful), there won’t be one election law changed that benefits the gop.
Changing to a district by district basis could be framed to be similar to the “popular” vote the dems always scream for so they might actually consider passing it. In reality, passing that would lessen the importance of cheating in the big cities.
