A research group from New Jersey has thrown a fresh look at the post-election polling results settled that the amount of those who are not registered citizens and voted illegally in the presidential election is probably way bigger than prior approximations.
In the presidential election in 2008, more than 5.7 million non-registered citizens have voted, thus putting former president Barack Obama in the White House.
Just Facts, a research organization and independent think tank ran by self-described conservatives and liberals, unveiled its number-chomping in a report on national immigration.
The president of Just Facts, James D. Agresti and his team members looked at the records from the wide-ranging Harvard/YouGov study that does an inquiry of a sample of size of tens of thousands of voters every two years.
Just Facts’ assumptions challenges both sides in the illegal voting debate – those who say it occurs a lot and those who say the problem does not exist.
In one camp, there are revolutionary studies by professors at Old Dominion University in Virginia who tried to amass methodically derived illegal voting numbers using the Harvard records, called the Cooperative Congressional Election Study.
The ODU professors, who are firm with what they did in the face of attacks from the liberals, settled that in 2008 as few as 38,000 and as many as 2.8 million noncitizens voted.
Mr. Agresti’s analysis of the same polling records stayed on much higher numbers. He projected that as many as 7.9 million noncitizens were not legally registered that year and 594,000 to 5.7 million voted.
These numbers are cooperating more with the unconfirmed approximations given by President Donald Trump, who stated the number of votes cast by noncitizens was the reason he lost the popular vote to his opponent Hillary Clinton.
“The details are technical, but the figure I calculated is based on a more conservative margin of sampling error and a methodology that I consider to be more accurate,” Mr. Agresti told The Washington Times.
