This isn’t complicated, and it’s an obvious question to ask: all of a sudden these states allowed exponentially more harvested mail-ins than in past years and the ballots were all counted at a-historical rates in a way that obviously favored Biden.
The national mass mail-in voting created systemic risks: lack of basic administrative infrastructure and personnel competency, inaccurate voter rolls, multiple registrations, decedent registrations, ballot harvesting, and venal postal service employees.
Let’s not even get into state-by-state legal requirements, such as signature verification, copies of voters’ photo identification, and postmark date deadlines. Pennsylvania, where the Trump campaign will focus much of its litigation, requires a sealed privacy envelope.
In the Wisconsin primary, the rejection rate was around 2%—which seems low until one considers that the raw total of rejected ballots was 23,169, greater than Trump’s current deficit in the Badger State. In Pennsylvania, election officials worried that they might have to reject as many as 100,000 mail-in ballots.
Are we completely certain that “all” of these mail-in ballots across the battleground states, which have disproportionately gone to Biden, are legitimate? Are we completely sure that each and every mail-in ballot that has been cast for Biden has, in fact, been in legal compliance with the relevant rules and regulations?
The Trump team needs to hammer away at this.
