Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from the 1.3 million illegals voters on Nov. 8, an approximation short of President Trump’s estimate 2-5 million illegal voters but supportive of his charges of fraud in general.
This is in contrast with NPR’s daily claim that Trump has zero evidence of any voter fraud at all, and Fact-check’s claim that Trump’s claim is totally and utterly false:
Political scientist Jesse Richman of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, has worked with colleagues from a consortium of mostly left leaning universities with nothing to gain by backing up Trump’s claim of voter fraud to produce groundbreaking research on noncitizen voting, and this week he posted a response to Mr. Trump’s assertion.
Based on national polling by a consortium of universities, a report by Mr. Richman said 6.4 percent of the estimated 20 million adult noncitizens in the U.S. voted in November, or 1.3 million illegal votes. He extrapolated that that percentage would have added 834,381 net votes for Mrs. Clinton, who received about 2.8 million more votes than Mr. Trump.
Still, many election professionals believe Trump’s estimate is fairly accurate but this is a way his political opponents can grudgingly admit the obvious vote fraud and yet still maintain that Hillary won the popular vote.
