CHRIS WALLACE (HOST): Corey, you well know that counting ballots after Election Day always happens. In 2016, three states that the president carried, North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, all counted votes after Election Day by law.

COREY LEWANDOWSKI: You know, Chris, what the president’s real concern is and the Supreme Court has made some rulings on this, is trying to get as many votes in by Election Day as possible. The concern is when you have some states that don't require a postage mark on theirs, so we don't know when they were filled out, they don't require signature verification, and some states they'll be counting nine or ten days after the election. I think that as the most industrialized country in the world we can do better than that, Chris.

We know that people can vote, we know how to count quickly, so let's get it done because I think this election is going to be won on election night with Donald Trump carrying in Florida and North Carolina and Ohio and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and if that's the case, there will be no need to continue to count because it will be a resounding victory.

WALLACE: Well, I certainly agree we would like to have a clear winner on election day. We may not get it. Corey, thank you.
