Kirsters Baish| Liberals continue to insist that President Trump was involved in some kind of collusion with Russia in the 2016 presidential election, but they haven’t said much about one important fact. Investor’s Business Daily reported about a huge issue in American democracy. That issue has to do with voting. A new study of United States Census data found that our country has roughly 3.5 million more registered voters than actual live voters.
The watchdog group, Judicial Watch conducted the Election Integrity Project which came up with the data. Data from 2011 to 2015 from the United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey was used as well as data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.
The National Review’s Deroy Murdock looked at the numbers and explained that “some 3.5 million more people are registered to vote in the U.S. than are alive among America’s adult citizens. Such staggering inaccuracy is an engraved invitation to voter fraud.”
Keep in mind that there is no possible way that every single United States citizen of age is registered to vote, so that means that there are tons more than 3.5 million fake votes.
After counting Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally, Murdock found that 462 United States counties has a registration rate that was over 100% of all eligible voters. Murdock called these 3.552 million people “ghost voters.” The state of California has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual people who can legally vote.
Investor’s Business Daily reported:
Los Angeles County, whose more than 10 million people make it the nation’s most populous county, had 12% more registered voters than live ones, some 707,475 votes. That’s a huge number of possible votes in an election.
But, Murdock notes, “California’s San Diego County earns the enchilada grande. Its 138% registration translates into 810,966 ghost voters.”
State by state, this is an enormous problem that needs to be dealt with seriously. Having so many bogus voters out there is a temptation to voter fraud. In California, where Hillary Clinton racked up a massive majority over Trump, it would have made little difference.
This makes a huge difference in both local and state elections. We need the Republican Party to take every single congressional seat that we possibly can, because this is the end of the line.
In other states as well as in smaller elections, voter fraud could easily change the outcome of an election. With a couple hundreds votes, the integrity of the outcome of an election could be on the line. Wikipedia has a list of close elections, and since the year 2000 there have been dozens of elections at all levels that were called at 100 votes or less.
There were at least two national elections in recent years in which the winner was declared by an extremely tiny margin. Back in 2000 George W. Bush beat out former Vice President Al Gore by a slim margin of just 538 votes.
Investor’s Business Daily also wrote, “Sen. Al Franken, the Minnesota Democrat, won his seat by beating incumbent Sen. Norm Coleman in 2008. Coleman was initially declared the winner the day after the election, with a 726-vote lead over Franken. But after a controversial series of recounts and ballot disqualifications, Franken emerged weeks later with a 225-seat victory.”
Franken’s win went down in history because it gave the Democratic Party totally filibuster-proof control over the entire Senate. All votes do matter, and even fake ones make a very real difference.
