Rudy Giuliani seems to not only forget that he was standing right next to Hillary in the wake of 9/11, he also seems to forget how presidents are elected in this country.
But then again right-wing whack jobs like Rudy aren’t exactly informed of what the Constitution actually says.
So, here is Rudy foaming at the mouth on CNN:
“There are no Republicans, and it’s very hard to get people there who will challenge votes. So what they do is, they leave dead people on the rolls and then they pay people to vote as dead people, four, five, six, seven. I’ve found very few situations where Republicans cheat. They don’t control the inner cities the way Democrats do. Maybe if Republicans controlled the inner cities, they’d do as much cheating as Democrats do.”
While something like this, if there was even a shred of evidence for it, might explain why Rudy lost a mayoral election, it would probably have zero impact on the presidential election.
Because the presidential election is not decided by the popular vote — ask Al Gore!
Polling shows Clinton is up in New York state by something like 20 percentage points. Not even close. Presumably pollsters are only contacting living people, not dead ones. Democrats don’t need any “dead voters!” Same in Illinois and California. The race is closer in Pennsylvania, but again Hillary is up by almost 10 percentage points — among the living. No need for “dead voters.”
In closer states, like Ohio and Florida, Republicans control the state governments, so it seems pretty likely that they can control “dead voting” (the living can barely vote in Florida and Texas!) so there is no need for amateur election mercenaries that Trump is calling for.
At the presidential level, the last state that Hillary needs for 270 (Colorado) according to 538 is showing her polling with a 7 percentage point lead. And no one thinks that dead people vote in Denver. Not a single “dead vote” is needed to elect Hillary at this point.
And of course, both Rudy and Deadbeat Donnie know this, which is why they are foaming at the mouth.
