Rampant vote fraud: New study says it's huge
A new study has concluded that as many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election won by Barack Obama, giving credence to President Trump’s much-maligned claim that more than 3 million illegal-alien voters cost him the nationwide popular vote last November.
A research group in New Jersey, Just Facts, announced it found that after examining post-election polling data, the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates, the Washington Times reported.
As WND reported in March, many election experts agree with the president that widespread vote fraud exists, including illegal-alien voting. But they think it’s unwise to make any estimates of the number of illegal voters, because there is no hard data at the moment. Yet, that likely will change with access now to records that were kept under wraps by the Obama administration.
Last month, Trump signed an executive order commissioning Vice President Mike Pence to lead an investigation of vote fraud, and several independent groups are conducting their own probes. The White House investigation will include a look at outdated voter lists with names of dead people and multiple registrants.
Just Facts re-examined a Harvard/YouGov study of tens of thousands of voters that concluded zero noncitizens voted, the Times reported.
The Harvard data previously was examined in a widely publicized study by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia, which concluded as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted. Establishment media has insisted the Old Dominion study has been “debunked,” but the authors stand by their findings.
Just Facts’ analysis of the same Harvard polling data estimated that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were illegally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.
The Times noted those numbers are more in line with the unverified estimates given by President Trump, who said voting by noncitizens is the reason Hillary Clinton ended up with a higher number of popular votes nationally. Clinton lost the only count that mattered, the state-by-state Electoral College vote, 305-232.
In the 2012 elections, Just Facts said, 3.2 million to 5.6 million noncitizens were registered to vote and 1.2 million to 3.6 million of them voted.
