A study by political scientist Jesse Richman from Old Dominion University in Virginia (https://www.odu.edu/directory/people/…) found that 6.4 percent of the 20 million non-citizens who reside in the United States voted in November’s presidential election.
He then extrapolated these results into support for each presidential candidate, estimating that Clinton would have received 81 percent support from non citizens, therefore receiving an extra 834,000 votes.
The number of 834,000 is significant enough to have tipped some of the closest races in Clinton’s favor, including New Hampshire, Nevada, and Maine, all of which Clinton won by margins of under 3 percent.
It would also have reduced Clinton’s margin of victory in the popular vote, which she won by 2.8 million by dominating cosmopolitan centers such as New York and California.
In the run up to the election, a number of Democratic-run cities were found to be pushing plans to increase the voting rights of non-citizens in order to further strengthen Democratic incumbents.
The Democratic Party has long been in favor of increasing voting rights for non-citizens, as well as felons, in the knowledge that these groups are more likely to vote Democrat rather than Republican.
