Earlier this week, President-elect Donald Trump made the bold claim that “millions” of people voted illegally in the most recent election and that if they hadn’t, he would have won the popular vote.
In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally

The media and their benefactors on the left immediately lambasted Mr. Trump for his claims, but not everyone has been so fast to dispute him. In fact, three separate anti-voter fraud organizations have spoken out in agreement with Trump.
On November 11th Gregg Phillips of VoteStand and JumpVote reported that more than 3 million “non-citizens” had illegally voted in the election (and the vast majority of those would have voted for Hillary Clinton).

Number of non-citizen votes exceeds 3 million.

He reiterated the claim on the 13th.
We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens.

The folks at InfoWars added their analysis to Phillips’ numbers:
“Virtually all of the votes cast by 3 million illegal immigrants are likely to have been for Hillary Clinton, meaning Trump might have won the popular vote when this number is taken into account.”
“Vote fraud using ballots cast in the name of dead people and illegal alien voters was a huge concern before the election.”
‘On the morning of the election there were 4 million dead people on U.S. voter rolls.”
Now the group True the Vote is adding its voice to the chorus decrying the rampant voter fraud in American elections. In a statement released on the same days as President-elect Trump’s tweet, True the Vote argued that Trump’s analysis was spot-on.
True the Vote (TTV), the nation’s leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released a statement with respect to President-Elect Donald Trump’s claim that “millions” of individuals illegally voted in the 2016 Election.
“True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trump’s recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.”
You may disagree with Mr. Trump’s claims that he won the popular vote, but the data would seem to indicate that he has a point, even if the left doesn’t like it.
