Accounting for Mail-In Ballot Fraud on Both Sides, the 2020 Election Was a Toss-Up

Published January 3, 2024

We now have extremely strong evidence of rampant mail-in voting fraud in the 2020 election, thanks to a new poll conducted by the Heartland Institute and Rasmussen Reports.

As I will show below, the staggering level of voter fraud contaminates the 2020 results to a degree that they are nearly useless. It is highly possible that former President Donald Trump may have actually beaten President Biden when accounting for fraud on both sides. 

According to the poll results, at a minimum, 1 in 5 mail-in voters committed at least one kind of voter fraud in the 2020 election.

Specifically, 21% of mail-in voters admitted that they filled out a ballot for a friend or family member; 19% admitted that a friend or family member filled out a ballot on their behalf; 17% admitted that they voted in a state where they are no longer a permanent resident; and 17% said they signed a ballot for a friend or family member with or without his or her permission.

Each of these instances is illegal.

As such, the most conservative possible estimate for mail-in ballot fraud is 21%. In reality, the true percentage is likely significantly higher because the fraud categories are not mutually exclusive.

For instance, one subset of poll respondents committed fraud by filling out a ballot for a friend or family member, while another subset committed a completely different type of fraud by casting a mail-in ballot in a state in which they no longer resided.

Before analyzing the effect of this fraud on the election results, it is vital to note that the poll’s demographic breakdown indicates that the percentage of Trump and Biden voters who committed fraud was roughly equivalent. Some, such as The Washington Post’s resident propagandist Philip Bump, claim that these percentages essentially cancel each other out and render the poll meaningless.

Mr. Bump’s assertion is ridiculous, as he well knows. While the poll does indicate similar percentages of fraudulent ballots, the total number of fraudulent ballots is most certainly not equivalent, and absolutely benefited Mr. Biden at a disproportionate rate. This is because a much greater percentage of Biden voters (58%) submitted mail-in ballots than Trump voters (32%).

Let’s dive in.
