    Study Claims Up To 2.8 Million Non-Citizens Voted In 2008

    Posted By Peter Hasson On 10:38 PM 01/24/2017

    Somewhere between 38,000 and almost 2.8 million non-citizens voted in the 2008 elections, according to a study published in Electoral Studies journal in 2014.

    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.”

    “In spite of substantial public controversy, very little reliable data exists concerning the frequency with which non-citizen immigrants participate in United States elections. Although such participation is a violation of election laws in most parts of the United States, enforcement depends principally on disclosure of citizenship status at the time of voter registration,” Richman and Earnest note.

    “We find 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. Non-citizen 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,” they continue.

    The authors later say that the number of non-citizen voters “could range from just over 38,000 at the very minimum to nearly 2.8 million at the maximum.”

    Richman and Earnest’s study has been contested by other social scientists and was the subject of a rebuttal article challenging their findings. That study, led by Harvard political scientist Stephen Ansolabehere, claimed instead that “the likely percent of non-citizen voters in recent US elections is 0.”

    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. Spicer did not cite any specific studies to back up Trump’s belief.

    The White House has not yet returned an email from The Daily Caller regarding whether or not Richman and Earnest’s study was part of Trump’s belief that “millions” of illegal votes were cast in the 2016 election and — if not — what other studies make up the basis of Trump’s belief.

    The media refused to report it, but Sean Spicer said today in the press conference that Trump was relying on a Pew Research Study and some other studies.

    Isn't it funny how interested the CORRUP MEDIA is in this? It's been on the news all day and night. An off the record leaked comment by Trump to some Congresscritters at a "light-hearted" gathering at the White House where he served them meatballs.

    How many dead people voted?

    How many cheaters who voted more than once in multiple States?

    How many Republican ballots were thrown out or destroyed in '08, '12, '16?

    This is a great idea. I am all for this. And get the Motor Vehicles Department OUT of the business of Registering people to vote.

    No, just use E-Verify. Americans don't have to traipse down to register again or drag out SS cards and birth certificates. Americans have suffered enough from illegal aliens. It's time for illegal aliens to go!! Deport them all. Get them out so we can enjoy our Blessings of Liberty.
