“There was widespread voter fraud” and “there could have been some voter fraud” are not equivalent statements.

I agree, there could have been some voter fraud.

Donald Trump said that “…the millions of people who voted illegally.”

I don’t believe that millions of people voted illegally, and won’t until I see some evidence that “millions of people voted illegally.”

Today, senior advisor Stephen Miller said on ABC’s This Week:

“I’ve actually, having worked before on a campaign in New Hampshire, I can tell you that this issue of busing voters in to New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics. It’s very real, it’s very serious,”

Miller’s appeal to the people to support his claim of serious voter fraud in New Hampshire is questionable for three reasons:

  1. New Hampshire elected a Republican governor.
  2. New Hampshire has a voter ID law.
  3. The New Hampshire Secretary of State, a Democrat who has served as Secretary of State since 1976, said, “I have no basis to say [voter fraud] is rampant, and there are ways we can deal with it.”

There are many, many things I care much more about than voter fraud. If it is a widespread problem there should be some evidence of it. In the case of New Hampshire, those who believe in widespread voter fraud are not able to produce any credible evidence.
