Weeks leading up to the election, Donald Trump lambasted our voting apparatus. He claimed the election could be fixed, and the outcome wasn’t trustworthy. Was he right?
All the pollsters and statisticians said the data was clear. The independent number crunchers all agreed: Hillary Clinton would win.
But when the votes were counted, their predictions were wrong. Or were they?
Statistical outliers happen, but as Trump cautioned, so do fraud and voter tampering. It is not taking the low road to ensure the integrity of our voting system. It is not sour grapes to ask for reassurance that every vote was counted. Our democracy depends upon it.
Never miss a local story.
So why aren’t we asking for validation that the vote was fair and not fraudulent, and that every vote was counted? Trump would.
