When looking at the 2020 election fraud conspiracy theories, some are dumber than others and some are more simply debunked than others. One of the dumbest and simplest to debug is the claim that there were more votes than voters in Pennsylvania.
The claim takes the number of absentee ballots requested in the Pennsylvania primary election and compares it to the number of absentee votes cast in the general election. Oops. If one takes the number of absentee ballots requested for the general election, then it is smaller (as it would have to be) to the number of absentee ballots cast.
This was of course debunked by the journalists who do this for a living:
- Fact-checking false claims about Pennsylvania and the presidential election
- In certain swing states, there were more votes than people who voted, and in big numbers
These debunking articles are a month or more old today, as Trump continues to repeat them
And just in case it gets deleted, here’s a picture:
