Trump's imaginary 'voter fraud' claims will make it harder for minorities to vote

 

January 27, 2017



President Trump has claimed repeatedly and falsely that voter fraud, rather than voter preference, robbed him of the popular vote last fall. And even though experts have debunked his claims, he’s now calling for a major investigation of November’s elections.

The kind of investigation Trump is calling for already happened: In 2002, George W. Bush’s administration conducted a comprehensive five-year study and found little to no evidence of widespread voter fraud. Recent examinations have come to similar conclusions, with a 2016 study finding that voter fraud is not a persistent problem.
