JOHN DICKERSON: There are irregularities in elections, sure. But Donald Trump is overstating the case to undermine the legitimacy of the election either to get himself out of what he thinks might be a bad result or to whip up his supporters and say this election’s being stolen from you, watch out.
MICHAEL WALDMAN: The supposed widespread voter fraud is not a reality. You are more likely to be hit by lightning in the United States than to commit in-person voter fraud. So you know what we should be focusing on, I think, is actually making sure that everybody know they have the right to vote, and be able to get that vote counted and not be scared by all this stuff.
