VINDICATION! It looks like President Trump isn’t the one wearing the tinfoil hat…
Let’s just leave the conspiracy theories to the Left and the Media (D) with their ‘Russian Collusion’.
President Trump was mocked repeatedly when he said that millions of illegals may have voted in the election.
Well, brace yourselves, WaPo Editors!
A study has come out suggesting that more than 5 million illegals actually did cast a ballot, but that was in 2008.
Do you think the number went down in 2016?
A research group in New Jersey has taken a fresh look at post-election polling data and concluded that the number of noncitizens voting illegally in U.S. elections is likely far greater than previous estimates.
As many as 5.7 million noncitizens may have voted in the 2008 election, which put Barack Obama in the White House.
The research organization Just Facts, a widely cited, independent think tank led by self-described conservatives and libertarians, revealed its number-crunching in a report on national immigration.
Just Facts President James D. Agresti and his team looked at data from an extensive Harvard/YouGov study that every two years questions a sample size of tens of thousands of voters. Some acknowledge they are noncitizens and are thus ineligible to vote.
Just Facts’ conclusions confront both sides in the illegal voting debate: those who say it happens a lot and those who say the problem nonexistent.
On one end of the spectrum are the professors who conducted the Harvard/YouGov study that claims 0 votes were cast by noncitizens.
On the other end is the Old Dominion University in Virginia study that says that as few as 38,000 to 2.8 million non-citizens voted in 2008.
Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the data has actually increased the number to 5.7 million possible illegal votes cast.
His analysis of the 2012 election was that 3.2 million to 5.6 million noncitizens were registered to vote and between 1.2 million and 3.6 million actually cast a ballot.
Mr. Agresti lays out his reasoning in a series of complicated calculations, which he compares to U.S. Census Bureau figures for noncitizen residents. Polls show noncitizens vote overwhelmingly Democratic.
“The details are technical, but the figure I calculated is based on a more conservative margin of sampling error and a methodology that I consider to be more accurate,” Mr. Agresti told The Washington Times.
He believes the Harvard/YouGov researchers based their “zero” claim on two flawed assumptions. First, they assumed that people who said they voted and identified a candidate did not vote unless their names showed up in a database.
“This is illogical, because such databases are unlikely to verify voters who use fraudulent identities, and millions of noncitizens use them,” Mr. Agresti said.
He cites government audits that show large numbers of noncitizens use false IDs and Social Security numbers in order to function in the U.S., which could include voting.

Noncitizens voting is a crime.
Entering the country illegally is a crime.
But, hey, the Dems don’t seem to care about that.
They know that if they pander to the illegal immigrant vote, they’ll get it.
And doesn’t that make them complicit?
They’re not even discreet about it anymore.
Here is Barry brazenly pushing illegal voting in 2016:
President Trump signed an Executive Order last month setting up a commission headed by Vice President Pence to get accurate information on illegal voting.
Excellent work, sir.
We can’t wait for that report.
