We’re gonna have lots to say about the election and Super Tuesday later on, but before doing that we thought this was pretty interesting. Donald Trump dominated Worcester, just as he did the entire state (which is why we didn’t bother with the Republican ballot), winning nearly 50% of the vote in the Woo. Worcester has 50 precincts where people go to vote, and Trump won 49 of them. Guess which one he lost:
Ward 2, Precinct 5. As you can see by looking at those numbers, clearly that is a precinct where no one gives a shit. Traditionally it ranks 46th out of 50 in voter turnout. A grand total of 37 people took the Republican ballot, and nearly half of them voted for Ted Cruz. Guess where precinct 2-5 is?
You guessed it. Good ol’ Great Brook Valley. Breeding ground of the notorious WANDA herself. If you’re not from Worcester, or you’re not familiar with GBV, it’s a housing project with a very large concentration of Spanish speaking people. The only reason we find this interesting or relevant, is because this was the ONLY precinct that Ted Cruz won. And Ted Cruz ended up finishing 4th in Worcester. Marco Rubio and John Kasich, both of whom beat Cruz in Worcester, did not win a single precinct.
Why do we bring this up? Because it shows that even in 2016 people will still blindly vote along ethnic lines. It seems ridiculous and silly, but it’s a major factor in politics. If your name ends in a vowel, you’re going to do well on the east side, particularly near Shrewsbury Street where all the old Italian people vote for whoever sounds the most Italian on the ballot. If you have an Irish or Jewish sounding name, you’re probably gonna do well on the West Side. And if your name is Ted Cruz, you’re pretty much guaranteed to rock the shit out of Great Brook Valley.
My question is, how come Marco Rubio couldn’t beat Trump in the Valley? Did they all think he was Italian or something? Because Marco Rubio definitely sounds like an Italian dude.
Anyway, more hot election takes coming later. This was just an appetizer.
