Is vote fraud canceling your vote?
From The Washington Post comes this extremely disturbing, albeit not exactly surprising story, entitled “Could non-citizens decide the November election?”:
How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote. Furthermore, some of these non-citizens voted. Our best guess, based upon extrapolations from the portion of the sample with a verified vote, is that 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of non-citizens voted in 2010. (Emphasis mine)
Estimated Voter Turnout by Non-Citizens 2008 2010 Self reported and/or verified 38 (11.3%) 13 (3.5%) Self reported and verified 5 (1.5%) N.A. Adjusted estimate 21 (6.4%) 8 (2.2%)
Because non-citizens tended to favor Democrats (Obama won more than 80 percent of the votes of non-citizens in the 2008 CCES sample), we find that this participation was large enough to plausibly account for Democratic victories in a few close elections. (emphasis mine) Non-citizen votes could have given Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health-care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) won election in 2008 with a victory margin of 312 votes. Votes cast by just 0.65 percent of Minnesota non-citizens could account for this margin. It is also possible that non-citizen votes were responsible for Obama’s 2008 victory in North Carolina. Obama won the state by 14,177 votes, so a turnout by 5.1 percent of North Carolina’s adult non-citizens would have provided this victory margin.
As you well know, this story explains perfectly why the One and his merry band of Marxist minions are so eager to enact amnesty.
One interesting tidbit from the story is the study’s finding that most non-citizen voters do have a photo ID, so as it turns out, as much as the Left squeals like stuck pigs at any suggesting that we one for voting, we actually need something more.
When we couple this story, with this one about the rampant vote fraud in Colorado, it’s easy to get very discouraged and depressed. I’m here to tell you that that is precisely the wrong thing to do. We need to demand an end to this illegality.
Our country is being stolen from us. What are we going to do about it?
