    Can anyone answer this?

    As you look around the nation at all the red votes for the house and senate, does anyone else wonder why there would not be just as many red votes for the presidency? Doesn't make sense at all. If you are voting for red values then you would vote red across the board. Seems fishy to me.

    There are a lot of facts about the election along those lines. It really is baffling. It makes no sense.

    The reason is likely that Trump is not your typical candidate, or Republican. He's a lot more polarizing and unconventional, and had lower approval ratings than most incumbents.

    There were a significant number of anti-Trump Republicans who probably voted Republican for all the down-ballot races, such as House and Senate, but voted for Biden or a third-party candidate for president.

    Let's simplify things a bit with this scenario.

    49 percent of voters were fanatically in favor of candidate A and voted for him.
    51 percent of voters were virtually indifferent but did vote for candidate B.

    Which candidate won the above ?

    B, while almost half the nation were waving their A-flags.

    It could be possible that his polarizing personality is the difference. You had a lot of people that hated what the Democrats were doing so they voted Republican in the other races, but just couldn't bring themselves to vote for Trump himself.

    But then again Trump did get almost 10,000,000 more votes than he did last time. So a lot more people were voting for him.

    In my own case, I wrote in Evan McMullin as a third-party candidate, but voted for most/all of the Republican candidates down-ballot (this was four years ago.)

    I am thinking that a whole lot of people sitting in pews on Sundays will have to answer for innocent blood on their hands one day.

    Those anomalies have occurred primarily in "battle ground" states but not others.

    When we are given a clear choice to choose life or choose to continue shedding innocent blood (which God hates), which should we choose?


    God clearly told His people to "Choose Life"!!!

    Figure it out from there.
