Liberal Media Hides Truth When Convenient
Phil Rucker of The Washington Post said Trump’s belief that millions of illegal aliens cast votes in the last election is an “unsubstantiated theory.” Similarly, Jake Tapper of CNN said “3 to 5 million votes” was not a realistic number.
Then, other liberal sites like PolitiFact destroyed Trump with comments but few facts. Clearly, these Leftist media outlets believe what they believe and there’s no coming back to the truth.
Questioning the way things have always been done will shake some feathers, but does that mean it’s best to just leave things be? Is that really the way we want to live in America?
Same Study Published In Washington Post
What about this study that the Washington Post published only two years ago…
In a forthcoming article in the journal Electoral Studies, we bring real data from big social science survey datasets to bear on the question of whether, to what extent, and for whom non-citizens vote in U.S. elections. Most non-citizens do not register, let alone vote. But enough do that their participation can change the outcome of close races. …
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.
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.
That’s right, illegal votes can “change the outcome of close races.” The report is based on “self-reporting,” meaning that non-citizens admit to voting illegally. Does this mean it’s possible that 3 to 5 million others could be doing the same thing?
It’s hard to imagine a specific number of illegal aliens, given the fact that they are here illegally, but MSM has reported the number around 11 million illegals. Of those, isn’t it possible that 30 percent would want to try and vote to keep out a man who wants to build a wall between them and their meal ticket?
Why can’t the media simply publish the truth?
