New study estimates 289,000 election-changing ‘excess’ votes, calls Biden win ‘suspicious’


A new voter fraud study by economist and political commentator John R. Lott Jr. suggests that there were 289,000 “excess” votes in states where Joe Biden’s victory was only slightly higher than President Donald Trump’s and that the differences in votes were “suspicious.”

Lott analyzed the voting in two key counties, Fulton County, Georgia and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, where there were multiple accusations of voter fraud. He found irregularities when compared to the 2016 voter data, including the difference in voting by people in neighboring counties. He found statistically significant differences “just across the street,” which suggests potential voter fraud.

Lott discovered that Trump’s rate of absentee voting in Fulton County was much lower than in the four neighboring counties in the 2020 election versus the 2016 election.

“Trump’s percentage of absentee votes was now lower in Fulton county border precincts than in the precincts just across the street in neighboring counties. Trump’s share was 7.19 percentage points lower on the Fulton county side, and the difference was also statistically significant at the 7% level for a two-tailed t-test,” he wrote in his report.

“This is not likely to have been caused by the general shift to absentee voting among Democrats, because the study controlled for in-person voting. 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 countries. The fact that the shift happens only in absentee ballots, and when a country line is crossed, is suspicious.”

Lott found similar results in Allegheny County, Pa.

His report suggests that if comparable irregularities can be uncovered in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin, Trump may be able to overturn the election in his favor.

According to Lott, “The estimates here indicate that there were 70,000 to 79,000 ‘excess’ votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania. Adding Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, the total increases to up to 289,000 excess votes.”
