Poll predicts Trump win



WINKLER – Spottschreft  recently conducted a poll in the southern Manitoba city of Winkler.  Respondents were asked who they would vote for in the upcoming US election if they had a vote.  Here are the responses:

Peter Elias, who farms in Osterwick, and who was in Winkler to pick up supplies, indicated that he would vote for Clinton.  Elias said that after he heard about the Lincoln bedroom in the White House being rented out by the night during the first Clinton administration he has had a yearning to spend the night there.  He stated: “Trump already has so many hotels that I doubt he would consider turning the White House into a bed and breakfast but based on past performance, Clinton might”.

Lena Schmidt, an agent at Home Town Insurance  came out firmly on the side of Clinton. “I think it’s high time that a woman was put in charge,” said Schmidt.  When reminded of Ephesians 5:22-23 which says, “Wives submit yourselves to your husbands as you do to the Lord,  For the husband is the head of the wife,” she quickly acknowledged that Hillary as president and Bill as the first husband playing second fiddle to her would not be biblical. She consoled herself with the fact that Trump who has had several wives is well versed at being in charge.

Armin Gerbrandt who described himself as a self employed contractor came down firmly on the side of Trump.  Gerbrandt reasoned that seeing as Trump plans to build a wall between the United States and Mexico to keep America safe, it won’t be long until he realizes that a wall is also required on America’s northern border to protect the US from negative Canadian influences. Gerbrandt felt the building of a wall might well generate considerable work for Canadian contractors such as himself.

As only three Winkler residents agreed to participate in the poll it is not a truly representative poll with an accuracy rating to 21.3% three times out of 10.

Despite the small sample size,  it is anticipated this poll could have a major impact on the election results.

Local man may hold balance of power in 2016 US election

Kleefeld – Peter Dueck, a mechanic at Jake’s Garage in Kleefeld recently revealed to close friends that he may well have a dramatic effect on the US election next Tuesday.

“I may hold the balance of power,” Dueck is quoted as saying.

In a recent interview with Spottschreft Dueck elaborated on the unique position he holds.

Apparently Dueck’s niece Helen (nee Friesen) is married to an English and they live in Pennsylvania. Helen is now an American citizen and is eligible to vote in the upcoming election. Dueck has been in contact with her over the past several months and has counselled her on the merits of voting for either the Republicans or the Democrats.

“I think I may have had some influence in terms of who she will vote for,” said Dueck.

In terms of his claim that he may hold the balance of power Dueck says, “It’s a democracy and you only need to win by one vote so if I was able to influence her vote that one vote could determine the outcome”.
