cloudygrey33: Speaking of Ned Ryerson (from many posts ago) --- if anyone is out there clamoring for a way to listen to multiple hours of Ned Ryerson, he actually has a podcast. (Called the Tobolowsky Files.) Just thought I'd awkwardly pipe in ... Bing again!

Some Trump voters still believe he can retain the presidency
Why are they so convinced? Because they accept Trump’s allegations that the election was tainted by rampant fraud, claims that predate the election itself by months. More than three-quarters of Trump voters think that there was enough fraud involved to have influenced the outcome. Tellingly, less than half think that was true in their own states — a good example of the classic political habit of assuming that everything is worse elsewhere.
While Trump spent years falsely alleging that fraud was being committed by immigrants in the country voting illegally, he transitioned to allegations about the risks of mail-in ballots earlier this year. His fraud claims are always both wildly false and obviously opportunistic; recognizing that the coronavirus pandemic would spur more mail-in votes, he has for months been claiming (without evidence!) that such votes are suspect.
And sure enough, Trump voters believe it. Two-thirds think mail ballots are definitely being manipulated to favor Biden. It’s a claim that Trump’s team has made for more than a week, without being able to provide any evidence to support it.
There is one spot of good news: Trump voters do think that recounts would make them more confident in the election’s outcome. (On Wednesday morning, Georgia announced that it would undertake such an effort.) Despite that, nearly three-quarters of Trump voters say that we’ll probably never know the real outcome of this election, which was obviously and demonstrably won by Joe Biden.
