A new study carried out by the Conservative think tank, Just Facts, shows that during the 2008 Presidential election, there were up to 7.9 million voters registered illegally, and of these, it is possible that 5.7 million actually cast a vote!
When former President, Barack Obama was asked about the likelihood of election fraud taking place during the 2016 election, he said: “What does that mean?” Obama chose to pretend that he was following studies done by completely debunked professors who claimed that ““zero” noncitizens of about 18 million adults in the U.S. voted” in the 2008 election.
When we consider that the Presidency is won on Electoral College Votes, the addition of even a couple of million votes in well-placed locations could mean a complete swing from red to blue or blue to red. This is why it is so important that electoral integrity is absolute.
Just Facts President, James Agresti, used a far more rigorous and scientific process to determine if any of the non-citizens voted…He checked the ballot registrations. When people apply for a driving license, they get to state whether or not they are a legal US citizen; by checking those that said “no” against those who got ballots, he came up with a figure that shows it is highly likely that between half a million and 5.7 million people voted illegally.
As reported in the Washington Times:
He (James Agresti) 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.
Second, Harvard assumed that respondent citizens sometimes misidentified themselves as noncitizens but also concluded that noncitizens never misidentified themselves as citizens, Mr. Agresti said.“This is irrational, because illegal immigrants often claim they are citizens in order to conceal the fact that they are in the U.S. illegally,” he said.
This conclusion, he said, is backed by the Harvard/YouGov study’s findings of consumer and vote data matches for 90 percent of participants but only 41 percent of noncitizen respondents.As to why his numbers are higher than the besieged ODU professors’ study, Mr. Agresti said: “I calculated the margin of sampling error in a more cautious way to ensure greater confidence in the results, and I used a slightly different methodology that I think is more accurate.”
Its investigation found that Virginia removed more than 5,500 noncitizens from voter lists, including 1,852 people who had cast more than 7,000 ballots. The people volunteered their status, most likely when acquiring driver’s licenses. The Public Interest Legal Foundation said there are likely many more illegal voters on Virginia’s rolls who have never admitted to being noncitizens.
Is it possible that Barack Obama, his Administration, and all of the available US government agencies really had no idea that illegal voting was taking place? Or is it more likely that they denied it in full knowledge that illegal voting benefits Democrats more than Republicans? For every illegal vote cast, that is one person disenfranchised; for a party that talks constantly of enfranchising people, it doesn’t seem to care much about it.
Whether or not illegal votes swung the election for Obama is irrelevant now; what matters is that real democratic process is restored to the nation. Photo ID’s awarded with proof of citizenship and identity are the only way to ensure that every vote really counts; if people oppose them on grounds of enfranchisement, then we have 7.2 million arguments against them. The only people who really don’t want true democracy are those that benefit from the fraud.
