It isn’t unheard of for voters to not fill out their entire ballot. Ballot measures and lower level offices often do not get the same attention as state and federal races, so voters will often leave parts of their ballots blank because they just don’t know or care enough about it. But the vast majority of people who vote for president also vote on senate and congressional races. That doesn’t seem to be the case this year in Michigan, a hotly contested swing state that magically manufactured enough votes to put Biden over the top at the last minute.
According to current numbers from DecisionDeskHQ, 5,867,609 people in Michigan voted in the presidential election while 5,717,819 voted in the very competitive Senate election. That’s a 149,790 difference. Biden is currently ahead by 145,935 votes.
Some might say that it’s just such a competitive Senate race that many people were torn so they voted for nobody. Unlikely, but okay. Let’s look at Oregon, which is a very blue state known for rampant voter fraud that did not have any risk of flipping to red in either their presidential vote or senate race. There, 2,317,816 voted for president compared to 2,281,011 voting for Senate, a 36,805 difference.
What about a red state with a competitive Senate race like South Carolina? 2,514,124 voted for president while a nearly identical 2,512,793 voted in the Senate race, a mere 1,331 difference. That sounds much more reasonable based on past elections with only a small portion of the electorate abstaining on the Senate.
