President Donald Trump repeats the claim that but for fraudulent voting by illegal immigrants and by those “long dead” he would have won the popular vote.
Clearly, the reality that Hillary Clinton was more popular than he irritates Trump, and to him is an attempt to diminish his presidency.
As the Republicans have extensive control of governorships and legislatures responsible for voting, it would seem voter misconduct or fraudulent behavior would have received a vigorous response.
The GOP controls 68 out of 98 partisan legislative chambers, the highest in history. Republicans currently hold governorships and both Houses of the legislatures in 23 States.
Yet the National Association of Secretaries of State has stated, “We are not aware of any evidence that supports the voter fraud claims made by Trump.”
No one knows what Trump truly believes. If he is lying or is delusional is the question. The consequences for either is concerning for the man who has the power of Commander in Chief.
