Trump Wonders If Election Should Be Delayed After CBS Runs Mail-In Voting Experiment That Goes Horribly Wrong

CBS News conducted a vote-by-mail experiment that showed significant problems, prompting President Trump to warn of a “catastrophic disaster” in the upcoming election. mail-in voting

“CBS News This Morning” co-host Tony Dokoupil set up a dummy P.O. Box and sent out 100 ballots through the United States Postal Service around Philadelphia.

He sent another 100 ballots out a few days later.

The first batch of ballots saw 97 of the 100 returned with CBS noting, “In a close election, 3% could be pivotal.”

“Three simulated persons, or 3% of voters, were effectively disenfranchised by mail by giving their ballots a week to arrive,” Dokoupil reported.

A former Arizona election official tells the network that mail-in voting could consist of “somewhere between probably 80 and 100 million voters receiving their ballot that way.”

While 97% might seem like a pretty good rate at first blush, this could potentially spell trouble for anywhere between 2.4-3 million ballots.

 

It Gets Worse

The second batch of ballots mailed out by CBS had an even worse return rate.

Four days after they were mailed, 21% of the faux ballots had not shown up.

President Trump took to Twitter this morning to rail against the mail-in ballot scheme Democrats are pushing.

“Mail-In Voting is already proving to be a catastrophic disaster. Even testing areas are way off,” he wrote. “The Dems talk of foreign influence in voting, but they know that Mail-In Voting is an easy way for foreign countries to enter the race.”

Trump added, “Even beyond that, there’s no accurate count!”

He has the CBS experiment video pinned to his profile.

 

Delay the Election? mail-in voting

In a follow-up tweet, the President made a suggestion that is sure to send the Democrats and their resistance warriors into an absolute fit of terror.

“With Universal Mail-In Voting (not Absentee Voting, which is good), 2020 will be the most INACCURATE [and] FRAUDULENT Election in history,” he warned. “It will be a great embarrassment to the USA.”

Trump further pondered: “Delay the Election until people can properly, securely and safely vote???”

 

President Trump has been criticized by the media for suggesting mail-in voting is ripe for mistakes, even though reality and this new CBS News experiment show it would definitively be a problem.

He has even had previous tweets slapped with a warning by Twitter fact-checkers.

Attorney General William Barr has supported Trump’s contention however, suggesting to Fox News that mail-in voting “absolutely opens the floodgates to fraud.”

Other experts have posited that vote-by-mail schemes are a means of facilitating voter fraud.

Additionally, a bipartisan electoral reform commission in 2005 concluded that mail-in voting “increases the risk of fraud” and “raises concerns about privacy.”

Aside from fraud and privacy issues, CBS has now proven your vote – your precious and sacred right – could simply be lost in the mail.
