The Rigged Election

So let’s take a closer look at this suggestion.

Elections are regulated and overseen at the state level.

And there are 50 states.

voting-machine31 of which have Republican governors, 18 of which have Democratic governors, and one (Alaska) that has an independent governor who previously ran for public office as a Republican, so we should be comfortable calling him a Republican in the same way that we’re comfortable calling Bernie Sanders a Democrat even though he, too, was elected as an independent.

So if this election is rigged, surely it wouldn’t be rigged ­ – couldn’t be rigged – in favor of a Democrat, right?
