Biden Says ‘Only Way’ He Won’t Win Election Is If ‘Chicanery’ Occurs

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden told supporters Saturday that \the only way he would lose the election in November is by “chicanery” in the form of voter intimidation.

“Make sure to vote because the only way we lose this is by the chicanery going on relative to polling places,” Biden said during a speaking stop in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Biden later clarified his remarks and said that he would accept the results of the election regardless of who wins.

“I understand one of the comments I made was taken a little out of context. I’m going to accept the outcome of this election period,” he said Saturday evening.

“I was referencing the attempts that are made to try and influence and scare people from voting.”

The comments drew plenty of reaction on social media.

Biden has repeatedly criticized President Donald Trump’s rhetoric regarding mail-in voting, undermining confidence in the election and refusal to accept its results, The Hill reported. Yet the former vice president has had problems of his own creation with public statements before — and blamed them on missing “context.”

Forecasters have warned that the initial election results may not match the final results, since the surge in mail-in ballots due to the coronavirus pandemic may prevent some states from tallying all of their ballots on election night.

That could mean a long wait until after the polls actually close to know the results.

Biden leads Trump by over 10 points nationwide and 7.3 points in Pennsylvania, according to FiveThirtyEight.
