Oh My: Study Reveals Significant Number of Non-Citizens Vote in US ElectionsTownhall ^ | Oct 27, 2014 | Guy BensonPosted on 10/28/2014, 12:14:35 PM by george76
Electoral cheating is not the “myth” the Left pretends it is…More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both the 2008 and 2010 samples indicated that they were registered to vote….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.
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.That’s…a really big deal.
Democrats needed every last Senate seat they won in 2008 in order to overcome a GOP filibuster on Obamacare. Without Franken’s seat or Mark Begich‘s ill-gotten seat, the bill would never have passed — as written, or at all.
Previous studies presented serious evidence that Franken’s margin in Minnesota was furnished by felons illegally voting; this new data suggests that ineligible non-citizens could have put him over the top.
Pick your poison. Both bodies of evidence, by the way, showed that non-citizens and convicted felons overwhelmingly support Democrats.Excerpt Read more at townhall.com …
