A shocking vote fraud report finds that nationwide the U.S. has 3.5 million more registered voters than it has living, adult citizens eligible to vote.
The startling claim was reported by Investors.com after a look at U.S. Census numbers.
The data come from Judicial Watch’s Election Integrity Project. The group looked at data from 2011 to 2015 produced by the U.S. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey, along with data from the federal Election Assistance Commission.
Murdock counted Judicial Watch’s state-by-state tally and found that 462 U.S. counties had a registration rate exceeding 100% of all eligible voters. That’s 3.552 million people, who Murdock calls “ghost voters.” And how many people is that? There are 21 states that don’t have that many people.
Nor are these tiny, rural counties or places that don’t have the wherewithal to police their voter rolls.
California, for instance, has 11 counties with more registered voters than actual voters. Perhaps not surprisingly — it is deep-Blue State California, after all — 10 of those counties voted heavily for Hillary Clinton.
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.”
The report also notes that the disparity of fake registrations versus real voters is enough to throw elections if the fake registrations are used to register votes on Election Day.
Murdock concludes his article saying, “Whether Americans consider vote fraud a Republican hoax, a Democratic tactic, or something in between, everyone should agree that it’s past time to exorcise ghost voters from the polls.”
Indeed, why would liberals be afraid to eliminate fake or fraudulent voter registrations from the rolls if they weren’t interested in using those fake registrations to cheat during elections?
