Donald Trump’s ridiculous claims about voter fraud are an embarrassment

With the exception of the Los Angeles Times/USC tracking poll, which uses an unorthodox methodology -- Donald Trump hasn't led in a national head-to-head poll in the last month.

In a four-way contest — including Green Party and Libertarian Party nominees — Trump leads in four polls, two of which are from the conservative Rasmussen Reports. In nearly every other poll, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a lead, and that lead has ticked upward since her first debate with the Republican nominee. She leads by 5.5 points in a head-to-head race, according to RealClearPolitics, and by 6.3 points in the four-way.

In other words, all of the available evidence from scientifically conducted polling shows that Trump is very likely going to lose the election three weeks from tomorrow. There are a lot of reasons, but the most prominent is that Trump has been unable to expand his support beyond the hard kernel that helped propel him to victory in the primaries. His repeated reliance on arguments that are embraced only by that base means that he's been unable to woo new voters or, at least, hold their support.

Or, in more advanced iterations, the fraud is demonstrated by random YouTube videos and anecdotes, but officials simply disregard it -- including, for some reason, those Republican governors who would love examples that bolster the case for voter ID laws.
