I have wondered many times how many of the people voting really voted in the places they should have voted and how many voted only once and how many of the voters were actually American citizens?

The situation is so out of control with people registering the day they vote, early voting, etc. that I wonder if we will ever have a real election again in this country.

LOL, illegal aliens cannot vote you know. Also, voter fraud is statistically irrelevant, happens less than 1% of the time.

If an American of Hispanic descent voted, it is more than likely because they are an American. Those of you lumping all Hispanics with "illegals" is the reason why Obama got so many of their votes.

Brown skinned people who are bi-linqual does not equal "illegal."

More likely many of the illegals that Reagan gave amnesty to are the ones who pushed Obama over the top.

Yes they can vote. States with higher illegal populations get greater voting power.

The OP is not talking about individual votes but electoral votes which is based on population count which includes illegals.

Not really. The 3 vote minimum given to all states gives states with very small populations (in particular, out west) disproportionate electoral power.

Wyoming gets 3 electoral votes for its 563,626 people. 187,875 People per electoral vote.
California gets 55 electoral votes for its 37,253,956 people. 677,344 People per electoral vote.

So states with high populations (California, Texas, NY) have disproportionately less electoral power than Wyoming, the Dakotas, Delaware, etc.

California has a large illegal population giving it an unfair advantage.

Either way illegals are being counted.

Reading is FUNDAMENTAL.

Electoral votes are based on population counts and that includes illegals.
