Both Kellyanne Conway and Fox News agree: No Voter Fraud


Recommended Posts

Two separate articles that debunk Trump's claim of voter fraud. One from his own campaign manager, and the other from the Republican propaganda outlet, Fox News. Is it time to wake up yet, cons?

 

 

Even Fox News Knows Trump’s Voter Fraud Claims Are Garbage

Experts agree that voter fraud isn’t a major problem.

Donald Trump continued this week to spread repeatedly debunked reports of widespread voter fraud, but not everyone is buying it.

“Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day,”he said in a tweet, preemptively bracing his supporters for what now seems like alikely November loss. “Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!”

But ample studies and election experts agree that voter fraud is both rare and inconsequential. Even the hosts of Fox News’ “The Five,” who often defend Trump, shot down his claims.

“It’s not good for American democracy and our elections,” Guilfoyle said, noting that his tactics seem to be “working” on some of his fans.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll released earlier this week found that 73 percent of Republican voters surveyed worried the election could be rigged against Trump. It’s unsurprising given that the Republican nominee has spent years convincing his supporters to believe voter fraud is a real problem despite evidence of the contrary. In fact, one comprehensive study found only 31 likely instances ― out of over a billion ballots ― of in-person voter fraud (the kind that restrictive voter identity laws are trying to prevent.)

Even Bill O’Reilly ― an outspoken supporter of voter ID laws ― said that Trump should “stop whining” about the election being rigged.

 

Even Trump’s Campaign Manager Doesn’t Believe There Is Widespread Voter Fraud

Donald Trump’s campaign manager on Wednesday rebutted a central claim the GOP nominee has been making in recent weeks ― that the election is being stolen at the polls due to voter fraud.

“No, I do not believe that,” Kellyanne Conway said during an interview on MSNBC. “So absent overwhelming evidence that there is, it would not be for me to say that there is. We know in the past, we know that people who are dead are still on the voter rolls, we know that people are voting a couple of different times in places. You do hear reports here and there.”

Conway then shifted gears, arguing that what Trump is really talking about is media bias against his campaign.

“There is a larger conspiracy, larger collusion,” she said. “There is a great deal of friendship if not collusion from some members in the media, certainly not all, not even most, but some specific members of the media and the [Hillary] Clinton campaign.”

Despite Conway’s attempts to whitewash her boss’s remarks, Trump has continued to claim that the Nov. 8 election outcome will not be legitimate, urging his supporters not to believe the polls that show him losing to Clinton by a wide margin. Over the weekend, the New York real estate mogul claimed ― without offering any evidence ― that “illegal immigrants are voting all over the country.”

“There is tremendous voter fraud. And how Republican leadership doesn’t see that is beyond me,” Trump told Fox News on Sunday.

There is no evidence to support fears of widespread voter fraud or election rigging. Even Fox News acknowledged the claims of widespread fraud are unfounded.

President Barack Obama addressed the claims on Tuesday, urging the GOP nominee to “stop whining” over the “unprecedented” charges.

“It doesn’t really show the kind of leadership and toughness you want in a president,” Obama said. “You start whining before the game is even over? If whenever things are going badly for you, and you lose, you start blaming somebody else? Then you don’t have what it takes to be in this job.”

Every corrupt con douchebag who participated in whipping their moron base into this mindless, screeching rage with years of vicious lies, repulsive slander and fantasy conspiracy tales, deserves to be eaten alive by the grunting, animalistic Nazi stooges that they helped create.
