Actually, a lot of people “buy” that because the real stats show very little fraud in our elections, and such terrible percentages of folks voting at all. In most countries and many states, mail-in ballots are universal. In some countries, voting is mandatory and held on holidays, which is what we should do. Cries of “fraud” by the GQP are their excuse to attempt to limit the numbers of folks who vote (more votes are bad for them) and the exhaustive recounts and forensics in this last election (outside of the clown show called CyberNinjas) revealed a basically sound system with minimal and inconsequential fraud. These forensics were conducted largely by Republicans. Perhaps it comes down to who you believe, but the real facts are out there, too.
