Experts Deny Trump’s Election Fraud Allegations

Donald Trump’s claim that “millions of people voted illegally” for Hillary Clinton is just the “latest lie” by the president-elect, according to The Huffington Post.

In a tweet he wrote on Sunday, Trump alleged that his opponent won the popular vote by more than 2 million ballots only because undocumented immigrants were allowed to take part in the election. HuffPost suggested that he got the idea from the conservative website InfoWars.com, which incorrectly reported that 3 million votes “were cast by illegal aliens.”

In another tweet, Trump wrote: “Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California — so why isn’t the media reporting on this? Serious bias — big problem!”

Politico quoted “experts and historians” who refuted the president-elect’s statements. “There’s no reason to believe this is true,” said Rick Hasen, an election-law authority at the University of California. “The level of fraud in U.S. elections is quite low. The problem of non-citizen voting is quite small — like we’re talking claims in the dozens. We’re not talking voting in the millions, or the thousands, or even the hundreds.”

David Becker, a former Justice Department lawyer who heads the Center for Election Innovation & Research, told Politico: “We know historically that this almost never happens. You’re more likely to get eaten by a shark that simultaneously gets hit by lightning than to find a non-citizen voting.”

During his campaign, Trump made the case that the election was “rigged” against him. Apparently, he intends to continue making the claim even though he won the Nov. 8 vote.
