A Reminder of Why Every Vote Counts

Election Loser's Percentages

Most elections for president hinge on a small percentage of voters (less than 10%) voting for the winner instead of for the loser. NOTE: In original post I had winner and loser in the post reversed.

The history of winners and losers percentages in presidential elections shows that the voting division between political parties is quite small. In most elections the loser got 40% or more of the votes - not far from 51%.

Based on my original post of December 31, 2020.

Last edited Thu Dec 8, 2022, 12:37 am CST. Bolding of loser's percentage has been removed for this posting.

Data gathered from Dave Leips site.

Only 4 times since the American Civil War has the popular vote loser been elected president. In every case it was a Republican candidate that lost the popular vote but won election. (1876, 1888, 2000, 2016).

In 27 of the the 41 elections listed below the loser has garnered more than 40% of the popular vote. That is, in 65.9% or almost in 2 out of 3 elections the loser had almost 1/2 of the voting public in his or her favor.

Only Democratic and Republican party's percentages are shown.

1st column shows the election year, 2nd column the Democratic party percentage of the popular vote, 3rd column the Republican party percentage of the popular vote. In all elections except the 4 noted the winner of the popular vote was elected to the presidency.

Special for the nation and VP Harris in 2024

March 25 2024 lunar eclipse 5°07' Libra.

March 25 2024 Sibly prog New Moon at 19°26' Pices.

Chart for VP Harris prog to 2024 election in the White House

Years ago, when I was developing my progressed lunar return technique using charts for natural disasters (because the event details were so accurately recorded) I found that many times [but not always] an event chart would have an eclipse from the previous year right on or in hard square to one of the chart's angles.

On March 25, 2024, the USA's Sibly chart will have progressed to a New Moon on the same day as a lunar eclipse [Full Moon] at 5°07' Libra marking that eclipse degree as one of possible importance for the nation. That eclipse degree falls exactly on the East Point [an exact square in true body position in space right ascension to the MC] of vice president Harris' secondary progressed chart [at 5°22' Libra], located to the White House, to election day. The country's chart by virtue of it's progressed New Moon falling on the same day as an eclipse and that eclipse squaring the MC of the VP's progressed chart on election day denote them in particular unlike the president and first lady's charts. New Moon - beginning of a cycle; Full Moon - ending of a cycle.

What is a mystery is the very positive aspect of the Sibly chart on the MC of VP Harris progressed chart at the exact same time as a very negative aspect in the Sibly chart on her progressed chart's ASC. Could it be she becomes POTUS under negative circumstances?

Could Kamala become president

on or around election day 2024 or could she and the Bidens (pres and wife) encounter violence together then?

Any opinions based on astrology?
