If you remember, after winning in November, President Trump was immediately attacked for having “lost” the popular vote. In response, the President pointed out that millions of non-citizens likely voted against him and swung the popular vote to Hillary Clinton. The media laughed off the suggestion and painted the President as someone who couldn’t accept the reality that he had lost the popular vote…
Except, it seems that the President has more evidence to support his opinion than the media does to support theirs.
Back in 2014, the Electoral Studies Journal conducted a study that showed that millions of non-citizen voters had cast ballots in 2008 and 2010.
From Investor’s Business Daily (IBD):
The only problem is, a study in 2014 in the online Electoral Studies Journal made a quite similar claim: In the 2008 and 2010 elections, they said, as many as 2.8 million illegal noncitizen votes were cast, “enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes and congressional elections,” said the study, authored by Jesse T. Richman and Gushan A. Chattha, both of Old Dominion University, and David C. Earnest of George Mason University.
The bombshell was this: “Noncitizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress.”
While the media ignored this study and refused to give any credence to President Trump’s assertions that non-voters had swung the popular vote away from him, they’ll find it harder to ignore the latest study, which has even more convincing evidence that Trump was right.
Libertarian leaning think tank, Just Facts, has just released their new study that relied on data from a Harvard study sampling tens of thousands of voters and the conclusions may shock you.
Again from IBD:
The findings are eye-opening. In 2008, as many as 5.7 million noncitizens voted in the election. In 2012, as many as 3.6 million voted, the study said.
In 2016, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates that there were 21.0 million adult noncitizens in the U.S., up from 19.4 million in 2008. It is therefore highly likely that millions of noncitizens cast votes in 2016.
And it was no accident. Democrats had extensive get-out-the-vote campaigns in areas heavily populated by illegal aliens.
While the data does not “prove” that President Trump would have won the popular vote had we stopped non-citizens from voting, it does provide evidence that he could be right. It also lends more weight to the debate on voter fraud, as it provides a large pool of evidence that the Democrats are wrong and that wide-spread voter fraud is occurring in our elections. We cannot protect our democratic system if we refuse to protect the sanctity of our ballot boxes. It’s time for stringent voter-ID laws to go in effect around the country.
