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.
