Inspired by a post in the “McCain forked” thread.
In what seems an unusual thing for an election, both sides are talking a lot about fraud: Democrats are talking about reports of electronic voting machines in several states switching votes from D to R in front of their eyes (can’t find the thread, sorry; it was either here or the Pit), and Republicans are talking about ACORN and other seemingly fraudulent registrations. Plus, you don’t have to go far on this board to see Democrats who are convinced that McCain and the company formerly known as Diebold will utterly steal this election.
How significant a role do you think fraud will play in the election for either side? Will it affect the outcome in any appreciable way? For the purposes of this thread, feel free to assume that any of what I mention above (or anything you like that you’ve read and can cite) is deliberate fraud, as opposed to inadvertent error.
