California wants to send mail-in ballots to all registered voters ahead of the 2020 election due to the coronavirus pandemic, a move that President Donald Trump is continuously attacking — saying it will lead to a fraudulent and rigged election. Chris Cillizza explains why the widespread election fraud Trump claims will happen is, well, unlikely.As Cilizza says, voter fraud by impersonation is so rare that it's almost non-existent, which means it is not at all effective. The safety of the electorate during the COVID-19 pandemic far outweighs that miniscule risk. As for Trump being unable to recognize that can ever lose, I once observed elsewhere about a hornet I swatted (unsuccessfully, unfortunately, but at least I wasn't stung) 'he thinks he's winning because he can't imagine himself doing anything else.' That looks awful familiar.

Without a more robust mail-in voting plan, voter turnout will diminish. Maybe that's the point.Yeah, that, too.
