John Lott, who was hired by the Justice Department in October as senior adviser for Research and Statistics at the Office of Justice Programs just published a story in which he claims that as many as 368,000 excess votes tipped the scale in at least two states according to a study he made.
Those states are Pennsylvania and Georgia.
The study’s summary reads:
“Increased fraud can take many forms: higher rates of filling out absentee ballots for people who hadn’t voted, dead people voting, ineligible people voting, or even payments to legally registered people for their votes. The estimates here indicate that there were 70,000 to 79,000 ‘excess’ votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania.”
The best estimate shows an unusual 7.81% drop in Trump’s percentage of the absentee ballots for Fulton County alone of 11,350 votes, or over 80% of Biden’s vote lead in Georgia. The same approach is applied to Allegheny County in Pennsylvania for both absentee and provisional ballots. The estimated number of fraudulent votes from those two sources is about 55,270 votes.
The goal of the study was to determine the number of votes affected and what the implications were for the election.
He also says that the same conditions existed in other states too but he did not give a solid opinion since he has basically just studied the two states.
“In layman’s terms, in precincts with alleged fraud, Trump’s proportion of absentee votes was depressed – even when such precincts had similar in-person Trump vote shares to their surrounding counties. The fact that the shift happens only in absentee ballots, and when a country line is crossed, is suspicious.”
“The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden’s win in both states.”
Lott also looked at voter turnout rates in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, comparing counties where there was alleged fraud and counties where there wasn’t.
Lott estimates that at least 289,000 fraudulent votes were counted. Of course, his study has no legal effect on the fight going on right now but it does tend to agree with other information we have.
