The truly scary part is how close it was. This country is loaded to the brim with morons.

It was crazy how close it was. Still boggled by the fact that the lady I grew up watching tell the news went so far right and thought television anchoring was the stuff of political leadership.

I love that she rails against the media and news like that wasn’t her entire professional career. Maybe someone clocked her with a rolling pin and gave her a TBI.

It’s not that crazy… it’s actually crazy that she won. Kari lake has a much larger following. Instagram she has 500k vs Katie Hobbs 16k. That’s just one example. Katie Hobbs was a terrible speaker where Kari lake was not. Kari lake was also endorsed by both Obama AND Trump. I’m shocked Katie won. I am not a republican. I’m from California and moved to Arizona. I observed both candidates.

Wow, you’re telling me her Instagram follower count didn’t lead to her winning?!?!

Arnold Schwarzenegger won governor of California lol yes fans aka ‘followers’ make a huge deal.

Just to be clear.... you're comparing the IG followers of a washed up newscaster to the fans of the biggest movie star of the 80s and 90s?


Double_Joseph t1_j352bzn wrote

Have no idea what you are saying. I’m comparing 500k followers to 16k followers. You forget the education system lacks hard in Arizona. You really think Kari lake didn’t have the support? Katie Hobbs can’t even form a sentence on camera. She has stage fright.

How is Kim Kardashian still not president of the world? She has so many followers


Double_Joseph t1_j357qc6 wrote

She hasn’t ran yet lol I’m not down for it but it’s the sad reality we live in

Not one person has given a reason why Katie Hobbs won and I’m giving a big reason why Kari lake should have won.


TatWhiteGuy t1_j35g9if wrote

You need to hear a reason why the winner won? Seriously? She won because she got more votes, because people who live there voted for her. Followers on instagram mean nothing for a regional race where only a specific region can even vote…


GayVegan t1_j35kpnl wrote

Wait... Votes are the only thing that matters for winning?! Not followers on one specific social media site?!



Double_Joseph t1_j35rlp5 wrote

Wait who do people vote for? They vote people that are well known and liked. And it’s not just one example. Who uses Instagram more? Not conservatives that’s for sure. They use Facebook more. You guys are blind

Still waiting for a serious argument lol no one knows who Katie hobbs is.

You are the target audience for the phrase "touch grass."

Edit: you haven't even taken back your original, ridiculous claim that "Kari Lake was endorsed by Obama." Take a long walk to a public park tomorrow and enjoy nature. Maybe even strike up a conversation with a stranger. Please, please turn off your phone.

When I went outside there was Kari lake signs everywhere. I didn’t even see a Katie hobbs sign.


DJToastyBuns t1_j37z6gy wrote

Okay, well, she lost. Arizona is a big state. Stop committing obvious logical fallacies

You sound butthurt that your "stop the steal" candidate wasn't more popular. You said earlier that you're not a republican, yet you're content to parrot bullshit republican talking points (and outright lies).

Go outside.


Double_Joseph t1_j382luq wrote

I’m not speaking lies.. I’m speaking facts!! Kari lake has a much larger following. That is proven by large social media platforms.

Where is all of Katie hobbs fans if democrats use Instagram more? Yet Kari lake has 500k vs Katie’s sad 16k lol not even mentioning Facebook where it’s an even greater difference and more republicans use Facebook.

I am a math guy and the math doesn’t add up..

But you will gas light and say I’m lying when the facts are right there lol


GayVegan t1_j35uqrv wrote

The world exists outside of Instagram.


Double_Joseph t1_j376zde wrote

Again it’s not just Instagram.

Imagine you ran for governor of a state and nobody knows who you are and win. Specially against someone who is well known and liked. Not odd at all to you?


Feywhelps t1_j3529tr wrote

Bot accounts on Instagram cannot legally vote in the United States, hope this helps.

"Observed" does not mean what you think it does, apparently.

Two million people in Georgia thought the barely sentient Herschel Walker would make a fantastic Senator for the next six years. Twice. They thought that twice.

Seventy million people watched as The Diapered Orange Shitstain stole everything that wasn't nailed down, did nothing for anyone but himself, and shredded every piece of decency in the world for almost five years and thought "Hell YEAH! Gimme four more years of THAT!" in 2020.

America has some really, really stupid people living here. And a bunch more in elected office that should be in prison.

For some unknown reason, the vast majority of them seem to be Republicans.

In the great words of George Carlin. Imagine the most middle of the road person you can think of intelligence wise. And just remember that there's always going to be 50% of the population that's stupid than that middle of the road.
