Dobbs has done something like 40 segments on electronic voting. The one from last thursday was amazing, one of the best. These folks are really taking it seriously (even though they tend to focus more on hacking vs. rigging). Not only do they demo how easy it is to hack election results, but they release poll results showing the MAJORITY of Americans think the election results are going to be manipulated this November!!!

3. He didn't even read his poll results in the most telling way:
He said 49% of Americans were "not at all" confident that their own vote would be counted in the upcoming elections.

But the poll question had three options for people to choose:
not at all confident
somewhat confident
and very confident.

Yeah, 49% said "not at all,"
but 36% said "somewhat confident." Confident means "certain." If you're somewhat certain, then you're *not* certain, right?

Only 14% were "very* certain their votes would be counted.

In other words, 86% of those who responded to this (unscientific) survey were not certain their own personal votes will be counted in the November elections.

There is no basis for confidence. And there is no confidence.

4. You inspired me
What started out as a reply in this thread became a new post at We Do Not Consent, which I have also cross posted here at DU in GD.
