‘Who’s Benefiting’ From Midterm Voting Chaos?: Tucker Carlson

10 out of 13 elections with delays ended with Democrat wins.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Fox News host Tucker Carlson asserted that delayed vote counting in recent elections has overwhelmingly benefited Democrats.
  • Carlson made his comments on Thursday’s edition of “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” where he outlined stories of delayed vote counting and the large percentage of times when Democrats were awarded the win in those races.
  • According to Carlson, in the last several elections, out of the 13 races where delays were well-publicized, 10 were decided for Democrats.
  • Carlson pointed out that, statistically, the number of races won by Democrats over Republicans should be close to 50%, while in reality, almost 80% of liberal candidates won when the results were delayed.
CARLSON’S EXAMPLES OF RACES REPUBLICANS LOST:
  • The Fox News anchor harkened back to a San Francisco Chronicle report indicating that a quarter of a million vote-by-mail ballots came into polling stations via paid ballot harvesters.
  • “The Orange County Register put it this way: “People were carrying in stacks of 100 and 200 of them. We had multiple people calling to ask if these people were allowed to do this,” but of course, they were allowed. That was the point,” Carlson said.
  • “In the state’s 21st congressional district, the Associated Press declared Republican David Valadao the winner because of his lead on election night, and it takes a lot. The AP does not call races for Republicans unless they’re pretty sure, but in this case, they had to retract the call nearly three weeks later, after his opponent took the lead, the Democrat, because new ballots continued to be counted.”
  • The commentator went on to reference a Nevada paper that documented problems with vote counting on election night: “After a long evening of tortuous delay following a historic midterm election turnout, the results were finally in, and the blue wave promised by Nevada Democrats became a definitive reality.”  
  • Carlson added, “It was the same story that year in places like Detroit and again, Arizona. It took days for all the votes to be counted in the state of Arizona and ultimately you will not be shocked to learn, Republican Martha McSally narrowly lost her race for the Senate. So, here you have lengthy delays in vote counting, followed by good news for Democrats. It’s happened all over the country.”
BACKGROUND:
  • In Pennsylvania, a deceased candidate, state Representative Tony DeLuca, won his race for the state legislature by a landslide on Tuesday, as American Faith previously reported.
  • MyPillow founder and CEO Mike Lindell claimed democrats “went for the complete steal” during this year’s midterm elections, referencing what he called the “Biden Bump” phenomenon.
  • The MyPillow CEO also drew attention to strange irregularities in several races and blamed the Republican Party’s defeats on easily manipulated computerized voting devices.
  • “They went for the complete steal!” Lindell remarked on Truth Social, referring to a Midterm results graph showing suspicious activity in the Minnesota governor’s race between Tim Walz (D) and Scott Jensen (R).
