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.
