Trump Shares New Lott Study That Shows 289,000 ‘Excess Votes’ In Swing States


President Trump recently shared an interesting study by economist John Lott.

The new “Lott Study” shows that there were over 289,000 “excess votes” across GA, PA, NV, WI, AZ, and Georgia.

All those states were decided by close margins and this new Lott study provides even more evidence of voter fraud in those six battleground states.

If our President felt the need to share the new study it must be credible.

The Washington Examiner dived a little deeper into the Lott Study and released these details:

An analysis of the 2020 presidential vote suggests that there were 289,000 “excess” votes for Joe Biden in states his victory over President Trump was small, and that differences in votes by neighbors were “suspicious.”

“The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden’s win in both states. The voter turnout rate data also indicates that there are significant excess votes in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin as well,” wrote Lott in his report tweeted earlier today by Trump.

Lott analyzed the voting in two key counties, Fulton County, Georgia, and Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and found irregularities when compared to the 2016 vote. One key difference was the difference in voting by people in neighboring counties. He found statistically significant differences “just across the street,” suggesting potential vote tampering.

In Fulton County, for example, where the campaign has alleged voting fraud, he found that Trump’s rate of absentee voting was much lower than in the four neighboring counties in the 2020 election versus the 2016 election.

The Epoch Times also added to the story:

President Donald Trump on Dec. 30 shared a new study by economist John Lott, which calls into question Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s victory over Trump.

It purports to show that there were 289,000 “excess votes” across six battleground states, and claims that differences in absentee votes between counties with alleged fraud and adjacent counties is “suspicious.”

Trump posted a link to Lott’s study on Twitter, writing, “New Lott study estimates 11,350 absentee votes lost to Trump in Georgia. Another 289,000 ‘excess (fraudulent) votes’ across GA, AZ, MI, NV, PA, and WI.”

Lott’s study seeks to provide measurements of vote fraud in the 2020 presidential election, including by comparing precincts in Georgia’s Fulton County that are adjacent to similar precincts in neighboring counties where there were no allegations of fraud.
