It would be a full-time job keeping up with the bad information on the president’s tweets, but here’s one that caught my attention. Last night he got a big win in Nevada:
Great victory moments ago in the state of Nevada. The All Democrat County Commissioner’s race, which takes place on the same ballot as the President, was dropped precisely because of the large discrepancy between voters. Clark County officials have no confidence in their own election security. Big influence! https://t.co/TLHnFKNN6g

There was a reason Clark County actually confirmed its president’s results, but not in the local race that Trump announced:
In what is known as a county results survey, in which electoral officials check the number of votes against other voting results, officials found 936 discrepancies, or less than 0.1 percent of the 974,185 votes in Clark County. That quota will not affect the president’s deficit of more than 33,000 votes in Nevada. President Trump’s statewide deficit is smaller than his Clark County void because he won Nevada’s rural counties.
Clark County officials voted Monday to confirm the results of all the county’s elections, with one exception: a race for the seat of the county commission, which represents District C, an area of 332,000 people that includes parts of Las Vegas . The lead in this race was only 10 votes. In this district, electoral officials found 139 disagreements, the rate of 0.09 percent of disagreements in nationwide votes. The district commission called for a special election.
