Axios – Axios/APTrump’s voter-fraud commission is another in a long line of efforts that are being used to justify voter suppression, including voter ID laws and voter-ID requirements.
But as Vox’s Matt Yglesias explains, the effort to impose strict voter ID requirements is a far cry from the idea that millions of voters have been disenfranchised in the 2016 election, and that the country could be “faster, more efficient, and safer” if it didn’t.
The commission is an attempt to find out whether the election results were tainted.
That is, is there a problem with the vote?
And what could be done to correct it?
The Trump administration, and many of the country’s political leaders, have said they don’t believe there is a problem.
It’s not just that the voting data is not perfect.
It isn’t just that there are too many errors.
It also isn’t that the results aren’t representative of the population.
The Trump commission has not been able to produce evidence to back up the claims.
The Trump team has also claimed that the vote is secure.
It has also been unable to produce the data that would allow the commission to actually test whether the results are representative of American voters.
The commission is relying on voter rolls that are so small that the actual count would take more than a day.
The results are based on the total number of votes cast in each precinct, not individual voters.
And the data it is using is also flawed.
The election system is notoriously unreliable, and any number of problems could make it unreliable.
The report states that the data used by the commission “may be inaccurate in a number of ways,” including its methods of obtaining data, the quality of the information collected, and the methods used to process and verify it.
The problem isn’t the vote itself, but that it isn’t being verified by anyone outside the Trump administration.
Trump himself said he didn’t want to be responsible for verifying that votes were tallied accurately.
That means the commission is also relying on “a massive voter fraud problem” that has not existed since 2000, when it was first proposed.
“The election is not rigged.
The elections are not stolen,” Trump said in a 2016 interview.
“And I will tell you that we’re going to make sure the results come out right.”
In fact, the election was already rigged in Trump’s favor.
The only person with the authority to change the results of the election, the Supreme Court, decided to uphold the results in a ruling that Trump said was a “massive fraud” and that “thousands of people” had voted illegally.
The White House has said that it is confident that the commission’s work will “be accurate, fair, and transparent.”
It is unclear how the Trump team is going to do that.
The report doesn’t say what they are going to propose to do.
But the commission has proposed a series of steps to try to make the election more accurate.
