Capacity of the U.S. Postal Service

There are 153 million registered voters in the United States and about half of them end up voting in the average election. So say it’s high and it’s about 80 million. Trump says that the postal service can’t handle that.

So let’s just assume that all 80 million voters that will vote do so by mail in the two months leading up to November 3rd.

Do you realize that the U.S. Postal Service delivers about 2 billion Christmas cards every year, most of them in the 3 to 4 week timespan before Christmas?

That means 2,000 million Christmas cards in 4 weeks are no problem for the U.S. Postal Service, but somehow 80 million ballots are a problem over 4 to 8 weeks before the election?

Give me a break!
