Mail-In Battle

Democratic scare tactics failing to turn out mail-in vote

October 23, 2020  0

Democratic scare tactics have backed the Biden campaign into a corner.

Mainstream media has spent months tallying Wuhan virus statistics to promote voting by mail. As the number of cases has risen, Democratic leaders made voting in person a questionable violation of community health.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar: "Not being able to mail in their ballot, because the time wouldn't be extended. Standing in long lines, wearing masks. Everything about it was wrong."

Also, when President Trump called for his supporters to become poll watchers, Trump said, "I'm urging my supporters to go into the polls and watch very carefully."

Media pundits jumped at the opportunity to accuse Trump of voter intimidation: "Make no mistake about it ... [They] are meant to intimidate voters as they show up to the polls."

However, with less than three weeks to go in the election, the numbers are not favoring the Democrats.

In data collected by the United States Elections Project for key battleground states — including Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Michigan — the numbers show Democrats may have limited their path to victory by emphasizing mail-in voting.

In the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton lost all three of these battleground states. In Pennsylvania, 510,000 Democrats have successfully returned their ballot out of a requested 1.6 million. In order to match Hillary's losing number, Joe Biden will need nearly 2.5 million more voters to return their ballots or show up at the polls.

In North Carolina, 301,000 out of 637,000 Democrat votes have been accepted. In order for Biden to still lose to Trump's 2016 result, he would need 1.9 million more votes.

Michigan has not released a party breakdown of its mail-in votes. Presuming a higher average of Democratic support based on Pennsylvania and North Carolina, it would be fair to give Democrats an 80% lead in mail-in voting, totaling 1,120,000 votes in.

In order for Biden to almost beat 2016 Trump, he would either need almost every other requested mail-in ballot to be accepted in his favor or inspire nearly 1.15 million voters to turn up at polling locations.

Catholic voters hopeful of an outcome favoring religious liberty and the sanctity of life are encouraged to vote by mail or in person — in numbers high enough to offset the final mail-in count.
