Really? Has the state of Ohio intentionally designed a primary ballot, pictured above, that is so confusing that many votes may not be counted?
How does this thing work? What if people make a mistake? Is the ballot discounted?
Why isn’t there just one box for “Select your choice for Republican nominee for President,” instead of going through all of the confusing business of separating District Delegates, Delegates-at-Large, District Alternates, and Alternates-at-Large. Do the geniuses who designed this ballot really believe that the average Joe understands the difference, or gives a doodly?
Why is John Kasich’s name first on the ballot? It isn’t in alphabetical order. Is that intended to give Kasich an advantage? Certainly looks like it.
The latest polling is very close in Ohio between Kasich and Trump. The most recent RCP poll has The Donald leading Kasich by a slim 2.5 points in Ohio, averaging four recent polls, three of which give Trump a lead of 6, 6, and 3 points. Only one poll did not favor Donald Trump, Fox News (go figure), which gave Kasich a 5-point advantage.
The trump card (pun intended) may very well be voter fraud. Ohioans love their voter fraud, in which case you can expect a Kasich win. Without voter fraud, Trump wins Ohio and seals the deal!
From The Daily Sheeple
We all know the elite are on the warpath against Donald Trump, with everyone from pundits, to major world leaders, to the Pope speaking out against him. Newt Gingrich recently said it’s because Trump isn’t part of the secret societies and hasn’t taken the initiation rites.
Regardless, Trump has received a groundswell of support from the average conservative American, winning state primaries left and right. Ohio’s primary is coming up on March 15, and it’s a big one because it’s a “winner takes all” state.
Well now it’s being alleged that Ohio’s GOP has intentionally set up a confusing ballot in a bid to try to make sure Donald Trump does not win.
The Dem ballot has one place for voters to mark their choice for president. Period.
The Republican ballot in Ohio this year apparently has two, leaving a lot more questions than answers about whether or not voters will understand how it works.
Take a look, (via the Conservative Treehouse):
Is the ballot intentionally confusing by design?
Given the previous discussions on State Party shenanigans, and the intent of state republican party leadership to hold complete influence over their delegate’s decision-making, many believe the answer is “probably”.
Look at that ballot. It definitely raises a lot of questions… that aren’t answered on the ballot.
Do the majority of voters know the difference between “Delegates-at-Large” and “District Delegates”? Does a person need to choose their candidate twice, or are they only supposed to chose once? Which is right? What if they pick a different candidate in each box, do they cancel each other out? What if they pick someone in the first box and not the second, or vice versa?
Why the confusing GOP ballot, Ohio?
