Will 44,000 Possibly Fraudulent Votes in Three States Give Joe Biden the Presidency?

If you follow only mainstream-media newspapers, CNN, or MSNBC, you might believe that a tidal wave of votes across the country resulted in Joe Biden coasting to a victory over Donald Trump. After all, Biden supposedly got more than 5 million votes in the popular count than Trump did. How could the race possibly be close or undecided?

And after all, these supposedly phony charges about voter fraud and desperate-heave lawsuits are just from the usual sore losers. Moreover, the courts have repeatedly decided against Trump’s lawsuits for two reasons:  The plaintiffs either have no standing in these lawsuits, or even if there was some amount of fraud, it would not change the results of the election.

But the reality is in stark contrast to this narrative. As President John Adams wrote, “Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passion, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence.”

In this case, the facts are that a change of less than 44,000 votes in official counts in three states would give President Trump the electoral votes he needs for a second term. In other words, the election was not a landslide. The margin of alleged victory is razor thin, and if there is evidence of even a small number of fraudulent votes in these states, Joe Biden cannot rightly claim victory.

As the 538 electors prepare to cast their vote on Monday, December 14, the projected vote is 306 votes for Biden and 232 for Trump. The chart below shows the alleged margin of victory for Biden and the number of electoral votes in each state:


State                                                   Purported Margin of Victory           Electoral Votes


Arizona                                                        10,457                                                    11

Georgia                                                        12,760                                                    16

Wisconsin                                                    20,608                                                   10


Total                                                             43,825                                                    37       


If there is enough evidence of fraudulent voting in these three states and Trump were to win these 37 electoral votes, both candidates would have 269 votes. In the event of a tie, then the House of Representatives decides who’s president, and each state is allowed one vote. As the Republicans control more states than the Democrats in the House, Trump would presumably gain a second term.

There are, moreover, three additional states where Biden has allegedly received a thin margin of victory in the popular vote but where fraudulent voting appears to have occurred:  Nevada with 33,596, Pennsylvania with 80,555, and Michigan with 154,188 votes. If enough evidence of fraud in any one of these states were to be proven along with the first three states mentioned above, Trump would be an outright winner in the Electoral College, and there would be no need for a vote in the House of Representatives.

So, there are two main questions:  Is there demonstrable evidence of significant voting fraud in these states?  And if so, what is the proper process to discount the fraudulent votes and decide whether the state’s electoral votes should be awarded to President Trump?

In answer to the first question, there appears to be ample evidence of voter fraud in all six of these battleground states.

The simplest way to understand the charges of voter fraud is to review the lawsuit brought by the Texas Attorney General which was joined by 17 other states.

The Texas Attorney General’s lawsuit complaint cites instances in four battleground states (Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) where large numbers of local election officials did not check signatures on absentee ballot envelopes with signatures on file for voters; where poll watchers were not allowed to watch polls; where flash drives either disappeared or were shown to have flipped substantial numbers of votes from Trump to Biden; where votes received after deadlines set by state legislatures were extended by government officials who are not state legislators.

These are not technicalities. If a ballot doesn’t comport with the rules set forth by a state legislature (and consistent with both the state and federal constitutions), then it should be tossed, because there can be no confidence that the ballot is legitimate. Yet in many instances, it appears, suspect votes were counted, to the benefit of Biden.

In certain battleground states, multiple statistically improbable events occurred late on election night to flip Trump leads into Biden leads. The question is:  Was that legit? Or does fraud account for it?

“Put simply, there is substantial reason to doubt the voting results in the Defendant States,” the Texas Attorney General says in the complaint.

He’s right.

Unfortunately, the so-called “mainstream” media is in the tank for Biden and refuses to report how close the presidential race is and the credible evidence of voter fraud in these states. Thus, roughly half the country is riveted to the breaking news in the conservative media about voter fraud, and the other half, having had no exposure to the facts, treats this all as a giant conspiracy theory.

The second question is how this situation gets rectified. There have been allegations about voter fraud in previous presidential elections, the most famous of which was the Kennedy-Nixon election 60 years ago. There appeared to be voter fraud in Chicago and in Texas, which tipped the close election to Kennedy. Nixon’s advisers counseled him to challenge the election and examine the alleged voter fraud that denied him his victory. Nixon did not want to put the country through this agonizing process and conceded the election. In these days of ideological civil war and widespread distrust of the government, there is no such reluctance – especially after many in the Democratic Party have put up a four-year-long “resistance” to Trump and done everything possible, including impeachment, to bring him down.

Most conservatives hoped that the Supreme Court would accept the Texas lawsuit and address the situation, but the court opined on Friday that Texas and the 17 other states had no standing. However, this does not solve the problem. According to opinion polls, large majorities of Republicans and even some Democrats believe that significant vote fraud occurred. Many people believe it may have been enough to throw the election to Biden. Even worse, many question how a U.S.  citizen will be able to retain trust in the honesty and integrity of future elections.

This election is not over. Even though a majority of electors will likely vote for Biden on Monday, December 14, it’s not a hard deadline. Congress isn’t scheduled to certify the vote until January 6, 2021. And the real hard deadline is inauguration day – January 20, 2021 – when the federal constitution says a new presidential term must begin.

If nothing is done to rectify the situation, the future bodes ill for Joe Biden, who may in 38 days take office in the wake of what many perceive as a stolen election. That could make the “resistance” that the Left indulged in the last four years look like child’s play.

The best way to deal with this problem is for the U.S. Supreme Court to accept one or more of the lawsuits which have been filed in the various battleground states, and to write an opinion based on the facts and the law that not only legitimizes whoever the winner of the election is – Biden or Trump – but also points to clear legal procedures, in accord with the U.S. Constitution, for future elections.
