Thank-you for your well-stated response. You are right that many Trump supporters do believe the election was rigged. The question is whether the idea of a rigged 2020 election is a bizarre conspiracy theory and whether their acceptance of this theory makes them gullible fools. You make a strong point asking how the Democrats could rig the election to have Biden win while at the same time losing many House seats and other down-ballot races. I think it is all debatable at this point. While not being able to prove massive voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Nevada, the fact is that the rules and processes for voting were changed in those states in ways that made cheating easier and less detectable. Could systems and machines be tampered with to boost the total for Biden but not impact other races? Before I agree it's impossible I'd like to do more investigation. Maybe there is not enough to reject the null hypothesis the election is fair. But that does not prove the election was strictly on the up-and-up. There is a lot to learn. For example, we could go back and check death records and voter rolls and find out how many dead people voted. Also, if we poll people post-election, can we turn up enough of a percentage who say they did not vote for Hilary but did send in a vote for Biden to account for Biden's increased vote total versus Clinton? Can the polls find the millions of ticket splitters who voted Biden on top and went on to help the Red Wave sweep other races? Thanks again for the thought-provoking response.
