Trump cant even convince his own party that mail voting is fraudulent

This amuses me. Members of trump's own party are ignoring him on vote by mail. and are moving ahead to make mail voting easier https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/22/trump-cant-even-convince-his-own-party-that-mail-voting-is-fraudulent/

But not only is Trump’s claim that fraud is rampant in absentee voting bogus (absentee ballot fraud is exceedingly rare); his real motive — that he thinks mail voting advantages Democrats — is simply wrong.

That may partly explain why even many Republican states are turning their backs on Trump and moving to expand mail voting. The New York Times explains:

In the face of a pandemic, what was already limited opposition to letting voters mail in their ballots has withered. Eleven of the 16 states that limit who can vote absentee have eased their election rules this spring to let anyone cast an absentee ballot in upcoming primary elections — and in some cases, in November as well. Another state, Texas, is fighting a court order to do so.

Four of those 11 states are mailing ballot applications to registered voters, just as Michigan and Nevada are doing. And that does not count 34 other states and the District of Columbia that already allow anyone to cast an absentee ballot, including five states in which voting by mail is the preferred method by law.

Those four other states mailing absentee ballot applications to all voters are Georgia, Iowa, Nebraska and West Virginia — all states controlled by Republicans that Trump won in 2016.

10. No history of fraud at all: Top Fox News anchor dismantles Trumps vote by mail fear mongering

trump has lost even Fox News on this ignorant theory https://www.rawstory.com/2020/05/no-history-of-fraud-at-all-top-fox-news-anchor-dismantles-trumps-vote-by-mail-fear-mongering/

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace responded to President Donald Trump’s recent claims that there is extensive voter fraud associated with vote by mail. In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic some states are moving to allow anyone who does not want to go to the polls to request a ballot to vote by mail.

“I’ve done some deep dive in it,” Wallace told Fox News’ Ed Henry. “There really is no record of massive fraud, or even serious fraud, from mail-in voting. It’s being carried out in Republican states, it’s being carried out in Democratic states. There’s no indication that mail-in voting as opposed to in-person voting tends to favor one party over another – if anything, it tends to favor Republicans,” Wallace noted.

12. I'm curious...

.....why is vote by mail by so important to Dems?

If people found it too taxing to actually be bothered to take the time to vote in previous elections, why would they suddenly feel some patriotic fervor to vote now because they can mail it in?

Is the theory that making it "easier" will increase turnout in Dems favor? Or make it far easier to manufacture votes in districts and states where its needed the most?

17. Because with vote by mail

that allows the adaption of the GOTV effort to go from a propaganda effort to pressure and assist machine. They used to have to round up voters who didn't care enough to get informed and convince them to go vote. Now they can stop by your house help you fill out your ballot with the correct choices and even put it in the mail for you.

13. Chris Wallace debunks Trump: No record of massive or serious fraud from mail-in voting

trump cannot even convince Fox News of his bogus talking point about voter fraud https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/elections-2020/chris-wallace-debunks-trump-no-record-of-massive-or-serious-fraud-from-mail-in-voting/ar-BB14tbWI?ocid=spartandhp

Fox News's Chris Wallace discredited President Trump's claims that mail-in voting is susceptible to fraud, arguing Friday "there really is no record of massive fraud or even serious fraud from mail-in voting."

"I've done some deep dive in it, there really is no record of massive fraud or even serious fraud from mail-in voting," Wallace, who anchors "Fox News Sunday," told "America's Newsroom" on Friday morning.

"It's being carried out in Republican states, it's being carried out in Democratic states, there's no indication that mail-in voting as opposed to in person voting tends to favor one party over another," Wallace said.
