Apollo 4 on column of fire

suspicions

I suspect that the vote tabulators weren’t rigged or hacked this time,
even if they were in the past. How much the vote flipping on touch
screen machines was biased towards ‘Republicans’ is a good question,
to which I have no answer, but at least people knew to be wary this
time, and you do get a chance to correct the flipping. The vote
suppression was probably back down near ‘normal’ levels. The reason I
think things were ‘normal’ this year is not that the Democrats won,
but that pollster predictions were satisfyingly very close to the
mark.
