Ron Klain, Democratic nominee Joe Biden's pick for chief of staff, agreed in 2014 that America's presidential races are "rigged."

Biden's "transition team" announced this week that Klain, a long-serving aide to the former vice president, would serve as White House chief of staff should the Democrat nominee be officially certified as the winner of the election.

However, Klain tweeted in 2014 that he believed American elections are rigged.

Klain made the claims in a tweet responding to a post from Vox.com.

The Vox tweet stated that 68 percent of Americans believe U.S. elections are rigged.

Mr. Klain replied to the post, agreeing with the statement.

"68% of Americans think elections are rigged," Vox said on Twitter.

"That's because they are," Klain replied.

The accompanying article said that Americans were right to suspect elections were “rigged” — because of what was legal:

A new Rasmussen poll finds that 68 percent of Americans think elections are rigged in favor of incumbents.

And they’re basically right.

The term “rigged” might go a tad far.

The problem here isn’t fraud.

In elections, like in so much else, the scandal is what’s legal.

The article focused on gerrymandering, which protected most congressional incumbents from serious challenges.

However, the reasoning could just as easily apply to large-scale vote-by-mail, according to Breitbart.

Mail-in voting was introduced in the middle of the 2020 election, despite objections from President Donald Trump, and resulted in high Democratic turnout.

A recent poll found that 70 percent of Republicans believe the 2020 election was neither free nor fair.

Last year, a poll found that 84 percent of Democrats believed that Trump’s 2016 campaign colluded with Russia to win the election — after special counsel Robert Mueller found otherwise.
