  • The ongoing investigation of Russian meddling in the last election has brought to light some of new issues on social media and elections. Recently, Paul Manafort, his business partner Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos were charged with serious crimes against the United States totaling to 12 charges. Amongst the 12 charges include; conspiracy against the U.S., conspiracy to launder money, failure to report foreign accounts, and accounts of false statements.  To fight the failure of monitoring political ads, Facebook stepped making changes on the ads to create transparency and regulation. According to Facebook, an estimated amount of 126 million people were fed Russian-linked pages and ads on Facebook. Earlier in September, Facebook had realized and informed the government that 470 accounts associated to Russia were used to spend almost $100,000 in ads between June 2015 and August of 2017. More details will surface as social media companies analyze more details of possible meddling attempts.

Did the candidacy of Ross Perot swing the 1992 presidential election? Reading the Wikipedia article on the 1992 presidential candidacy of Ross Perot, one would get the impression that it made no difference to the outcome of the election. However, after looking at the numbers myself, I thought it was pretty clear that if Perot had not been in the election, Bush would have probably won Colorado, Ohio, Tennessee, Washington, Wisconsin, Nevada, New Hampshire, Iowa, Georgia and New Jersey. This would have been 105 electoral votes, enough to give Bush a narrow victory. Pennsylvania would have become close, as well. Was there any attempt to carefully poll Perot voters in those states to determine if Bush actually would have won those states, such as New Jersey? For example, to take New Jersey as the pivotal example, Clinton won by 80,000 votes and Perot won 520,000 votes in New Jersey. Therefore, if the Perot voters had split 310 to 210 for Bush in New Jersey, then Bush would have won New Jersey. Has a poll been done to determine this? UPDATE Some commenters seem to have the idea that Perot was mostly supported by Democratic voters. This seems to be some kind of modern revisionism. I well remember the 1992 election and Perot was getting most of his support from conservative voters. Here is a Field poll from 1993 that backs this up for those who are not old enough to remember: As you can see Republican voters dominate Democratic voters in his support base, in some cases by a 2-to-1 ratio. I don't really consider it arguable that Perot candidacy hurt Bush. The question is whether it was enough to have turned the election or not. To answer that question I think we really need poll data from specific states such as New Jersey.
