Chris Wallace Suggests Trump May Have A Point About Mail-In Voting Fraud

Fox News anchor Chris Wallace floated the possibility that President Trump may actually have a point when it comes to an increased chance of voter fraud through mail-in ballots.

Wallace, who has been critical of the President on this matter in the past, made the assertion during a segment on Fox News Sunday.

The sheer volume of increased mail-in ballots due to Democrat-led restrictions or hysteria involving in-person voting due to the coronavirus pandemic was cited as a potential source of trouble.

“Hear me out for a minute. Isn’t it possible that the president really has a point here?” Wallace wondered.

“As I mentioned earlier, there were 33 million either absentee or mail-in ballots in 2016. If we have double that or triple that, isn’t there a pretty good chance that we will have a mess, at the least,” he asked. “And yes, possibly fraud?”

Be still, our beating hearts. Did Chris Wallace just address a concern that many voters share about election integrity?

Wallace is, of course, stating the obvious here. That the United States Postal Service (USPS) might be able to handle things under normal circumstances, but as 2020 has already shown several times over – these aren’t normal circumstances.

It’s just a little shocking to hear it come out of his mouth, considering it was just this past May that he argued to the contrary.

“I’ve done some deep dive in it, there really is no record of massive fraud or even serious fraud from mail-in voting,” Wallace reported.

“It’s being carried out in Republican states, it’s being carried out in Democratic states, there’s no indication that mail-in voting, as opposed to in-person voting, tends to favor one party over another,” he added.

That is debatable. What isn’t is the fact that he admitted fraud definitely happens. Why are we concerned about which side is involved? Isn’t this about the integrity of the vote?

If a person robs a bank one week, and another person robs the same bank the following week, does the bank give a rip what party they’re associated with, their gender, their race? No, the point is to prevent people from robbing banks.

Of Course, He Has a Point

Analogies aside, the President has had a point all along. It didn’t take Wallace to figure out the obvious.

“Some states use ‘drop boxes’ for the collection of Universal Mail-In Ballots. So who is going to ‘collect’ the Ballots, and what might be done to them prior to tabulation?” Trump tweeted.

“A rigged election? So bad for our country,” he added. “Only absentee ballots acceptable!”

What could possibly go wrong with dropping ballots off in the mail?

Let’s allow CBS to explain this one …

That’s right – CBS’ own experiment showed two examples of mock balloting, the first of which lost a significant 3 percent of the ballots, and a second in which a staggering 21 percent of the ballots had not arrived within a week.

Even prior to these extreme circumstances, mail-in voting was ripe for fraud.

Fairly recent debacles in North Carolina and Texas – some of which involve both parties – indicate President Trump does have a point. There were also several instances of why vote-by-mail could lead to trouble in upstate New York.

In May, Domenick DeMuro, a Philadelphia elections judge and Democratic Party official, pled guilty to stuffing ballot boxes over several elections to help Democratic candidates win office.

He was reportedly paid as much as $5,000 per cycle to commit the election fraud.

With many Americans struggling to make ends meet in this Democrat economic shutdown, and the chaos surrounding the pandemic, does anybody really think fraud won’t expand exponentially this election?

The USPS has already been suffering staff reductions due to positive coronavirus cases, while demand on their system has gone up as Democrat lawmakers suppress the economy by keeping people at home, increasing the need for online orders and delivery.

Desperate people will try to take advantage of the chaos. And nobody will be more desperate than Joe Biden supporters.

  • There may be a problem with mail-in balloting? There may be a problem. Maybe bears relieve themselves in the woods also . . . !

  • I can see visions of what's happening in Belarus only it'll be the democrats with 80% of the vote and the republicans with 52% (i know it's over a hundred but by the time the democrats rig the in postal vote you get the picture)

  • of course has a point. that point being that someone working at a sorting station can get rid of anything that has an r in the code that is printed on the envelope that they come in to send back. i saw this recently in a video, that there are codes on outside of this mail in thing, that denotes whether it is r or d. all someone corrupt has to do is toss the r's into a discard pile, and viola, dems win.

  • I wonder if Chris Wallace got sick to his stomach after saying Trump was right about something? Wallace has a hard time with saying anything good about Republicans.

  • Well, Wallace, did the light flicker just a bit with your new found knowledge. 
    A little common sense is more informative than your sophistry.
    Given the history of the Dem's party and large cities it isn't a stretch to understand they're going to cheat the system at every opportunity.

  • What do I think? I think the left has turned voting fraud into an art form.  They're convinced it's OK because they're sure their way of governing is the absolute best way and using voting 'schemes' to accomplish it is truly in our best interest. Its reminiscent of the old "Marxist Leninist Truth" that holds that whatever is good for the party is -- by definition -- TRUE.

  • The Democrat/Socialists support mail in ballots. That is all you need to know to decide if it is fair or not. MAGA/KAG 2020

  • Wallace put his finger on something no one in the media is covering. Not that mail-in voting is bad----if it's done by states that have prepared and had it set up for YEARS (the State of Washington has said it takes between 5 and 10 years to get ready for mail-in voting). The problem is when states decide a couple months before a national election they want to go to mail-in voting in exponential numbers. They are estimating triple, even quadrupal amounts of votes being mailed to people WHO DIDN'T ASK FOR THEM. Please get the word out!

  • Why do you think the price of gold is going "up". In actuality the dollar is dropping like a rock because people no longer trust the United States. Just what the commies want to happen. Then tell the 90 IQ masses that they will make it better. First thing will be anyone under a 100 IQ will be sterilized with a "corona Vaccine".
