Breaking: Trump Requests ‘Major Investigation’ of Voter Fraud, 2008 Study Claims Nearly 2.8 Million Voted Illegally
President Donald Trump is requesting a ‘Major Investigation’ in this election’s voter fraud allegations. Trump announced the call for an investigation via two tweets on Twitter Wednesday morning;
Could there really be voter fraud? If so, how big? Could it rise to the need for a major investigation being called by the new administration?
To help you decide, consider the following.
According to a study published in Electoral Studies journal in 2014, somewhere between 38,000 and almost 2.8 million non-citizens voted in the 2008 elections.
Depending on which side of the political fence you stand on, one may or may not be alarmed that these numbers are extremely broad for a study. But, one thing should be alarming to both sides… The fact that these numbers exist at all.
Old Dominion University professors Jesse Richman and David Earnest, the study’s co-authors, concluded that
“some non-citizens participate in U.S. elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and Congressional elections.”
The Trump White House has faced criticism over President Donald Trump’s belief that millions of illegal votes were cast in the 2016 presidential election. Trump has declined to offer any evidence to back up his claim.
“The president does believe that, I think he’s stated that before, and stated his concern of voter fraud and people voting illegally during the campaign and continues to maintain that belief based on studies and evidence people have brought to him.” press secretary Sean Spicer said on Tuesday.
