STUDY: Compelling Evidence Illegal Votes Robbed Trump of the 2020 Election

Published February 13, 2024

The other day, Heartland Institute Editorial Director Chris Talgo was a guest on “The Absolute Truth with Emerald Robinson” on Lindell TV.

Chris was invited on the program to talk about our analysis of The Heartland Institute’s blockbuster poll in December which found that one in four voters who used mail-in ballots in the 2020 presidential election admitted to submitting an illegal vote — activities like voting in a state in which you are not a permanent resident, filling out a ballot that is not your own, or signing a ballot that was not your own. Whether or not those illegal activities were done with malice or by accident, those votes should have NOT been counted in the 2020 presidential election.

As a follow-up, Chris and others at Heartland analyzed this data to see how various levels of this illegal voting activity with mail-in ballots — again, admitted to by Americans in our survey — would have affected the 2020 Election in the six close swing states. Out of 29 scenarios, in which we continually lowered the level of illegal votes cast, Donald Trump would have won, not Biden, in 26 of them.
