No Zuckerbucks in Wisconsin! – A Huge Shift in Odds Favoring Trump

Wisconsin is expected to be a close race.  At real clear politics, Trump leads by an average of 0.6% well inside the margin of error but his more recent polls have been improving.  As we saw in 2020, close races can fall apart in mysterious circumstances that appear to result from mass cheating.  Mark Zuckerberg’s private funding is understood as central to NGOs executing Democrat voter registration and voting drives as well as coordination with apparently corrupt state actors to ensure Democrat victories.

Given this backdrop, the news that Wisconsin voters yesterday banned Zuckerbucks and related private funding was a massive victory for conservatives and for President Trump.  The extraordinary win is also a good indicator or poll on Trump’s chances as Democrats, no doubt, got the vote out to try to prevent this outcome and failed by a wide margin.

As reported by the Milwaukee Journal:

Wisconsin voters on Tuesday approved two referendums that change the state Constitution to prohibit clerks from using private grants, such as to administer elections and add that only appointed election officials can perform tasks to conduct elections.  With over 99% of the vote reported by Wednesday morning, 54.4% of voters approved the first question and 58.6% had approved the second. A majority of Wisconsin voters must vote in favor of a constitutional amendment in order for it to go into effect.

Because a majority of voters selected "yes," clerks will no longer be able to apply for, accept or use private donations and grants, and the state Constitution will include that only election officials designated by law can perform tasks to conduct elections.

[T]wo referendum questions on the April 2, 2024 ballot came from a proposal authored by Republicans who continue to scrutinize millions of dollars in grants that helped Wisconsin clerks meet unexpected costs during the pandemic. Clerks used the money for personal protective equipment and drop boxes for absentee ballots, for example.

"Wisconsin has spoken and the message is clear: elections belong to voters, not out-of-state billionaires. Thanks to the efforts by the Republican Party of Wisconsin and grassroots organizing, Wisconsinites have turned the page on Zuckerbucks and secured our elections from dark money donors," Republican Party of Wisconsin chairman Brian Schimming said in a statement Tuesday night.

"Rather than work to make sure our clerks have the resources they need to run elections, Republicans are pushing a nonsense amendment to satisfy (former President) Donald Trump," Democratic Party of Wisconsin chairman Ben Wikler previously said in a statement about the two referendum questions.

This is a game changing outcome in the event of a close national election, and will help win House seats as well.
