That Western Kenosha County voted decisively Tuesday for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump would surprise few people.

But that Kenosha County as a whole also went for Trump might be more surprising in a county where the ballot on Tuesday saw a complete slate of county officials — all Democrats — elected without opposition. Democratic incumbent state legislators that represent east of the I districts also ran unopposed.

This year, Trump eked out a 255 vote margin over Hillary Clinton in Kenosha County as a whole. In 2012, President Obama defeated Mitt Romney by 9,896 county wide. In 2008, Obama defeated John McCain by 14,225 votes county wide.

Taking all Western Kenosha County districts into account, Trump received 11,964 votes (63 percent) to Clinton’s 6,149 (33 percent).

Trump also won eastern county municipalities Somers and Pleasant Prairie by tighter margins, 54 percent to 42 percent in Somers and 50 percent to 45 percent in Pleasant Prairie. Clinton did take the city of Kenosha 56 percent to 39 percent.

    The close relationship the DNC and mainstream media maintained with Clinton throughout the primaries is comparable to propaganda tactics employed in dictatorships. The stain left on democracy by this collusion won’t ever be forgotten….
