The idea that 6.4% of illegal aliens voted in the 2016 Election does not seem farfetched.

Of course, out of 20 million illegals, that would mean nearly a million votes for Hillary.

//Hillary Clinton garnered more than 800,000 votes from noncitizens on Nov. 8, an approximation far short of President Trump’s estimate of up to 5 million illegal voters but supportive of his charges of fraud.

Political scientist Jesse Richman of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, has worked with colleagues to produce groundbreaking research on noncitizen voting, and this week he posted a blog in 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. 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.
Mr. Richman calculated that Mrs. Clinton would have collected 81 percent of noncitizen votes.

“Is it plausible that non-citizen votes added to Clinton’s margin? Yes,” Mr. Richman wrote. “Is it plausible that non-citizen votes account for the entire nation-wide popular vote margin held by Clinton? Not at all.”

Still, the finding is significant because it means noncitizens may have helped Mrs. Clinton carry a state or finish better //

So, score another for "Unhinged Donald" being closer to the truth than the establishment, whose response is to wave their hands and pronounce the issue settled before it is investigated.

It definitely sounds like we need to make it harder for people with little resources, like illegal immigrants, to register and actually vote. If any actual citizens get caught up in such a crack down and left off the voting roles, well that's the price we have to pay.

“The point of modern propaganda isn’t only to misinform or push an agenda. It is to exhaust your critical thinking, to annihilate truth.”
Good job Peter, annihilating truth.
