The media collectively mocked President Trump for suggesting that illegal aliens voted in the past election, but a new study should have them all eating their words.
The president alleged that “millions” of illegal voters gave Hillary Clinton a decisive win in the combined total of votes among the individual state elections, otherwise known as the “popular vote.” As a result, the mainstream media both challenged and mocked his assertion, but they may want to have a look at a new study from the National Hispanic Survey that found President Trump may not be too far off at all.
Check it out, from the Washington Times [emphasis mine]:
A large number of non-citizen Hispanics, as many as 2 million, were illegally registered to vote in the U.S., according to a nationwide poll.
The National Hispanic Survey provides additional evidence for use by anti-voter fraud conservatives and bolsters an analysis by professors at Old Dominion University who say non-citizens registered and voted in potentially large numbers.
President Trump has announced he will appoint a task force on voter fraud headed by Vice President Mike Pence. He says he wants the investigation to focus on inaccurate voter registration rolls, which are maintained by the states and the District of Columbia.
“It is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country who are registered to vote,” White House adviser Stephen Miller told ABC News. “That is a scandal. We should stop the presses.”
The little-noticed Hispanic survey was conducted in June 2013 by McLaughlin and Associates to gauge the opinions of U.S. resident Latinos on a wide range of issues.
Inside the poll is a page devoted to voter profiles. Of the randomly selected sample of 800 Hispanics, 56 percent, or 448, said they were non-citizens, and of those, 13 percent said they were registered to vote. The 448 would presumedly be a mix of illegal immigrants and noncitizens who are in the U.S. legally, such as visa holders or permanent residents.
Meanwhile, any attempts to argue that illegals are participating in out elections and affecting the outcome are met with fierce opposition from the left, who claim that voter fraud is nearly non-existent and as such doesn’t deserve to be investigated. However, two million is likely just the tip of the iceberg, especially since same-day registrations allow people with little more than their name and address to register to vote then cast a ballot.
Combine that with left-leaning organization canvassing low-income neighborhoods to round people up in “get out the vote” efforts, and you have a recipe for millions upon millions of illegals both registering and voting in our elections.
