WASHINGTON — Mail-in ballots played a significant role in the outcome of the election and Joe Biden’s projected win.
However, President Donald Trump is calling the validity of millions of absentee ballots into question and challenging the results in court.
In previous years, mail-in ballots come in at more of a split between political parties.
In 2020, the absentee ballots favored Biden considerably. Research from a D.C.-based firm shows the majority of democratic mail-in ballots are largely due to President Trump’s own rhetoric.
“In many ways, this was a self-fulfilling prophecy,” Terrance Woodbury, partner with HIT Strategies, said.
Woodbury said it is not surprising that President Trump is challenging the integrity of mail-in ballots in court.
