American President Donald J. Trump on December 30, 2020, shared a study by economist John Lott that allegedly reveals there were 289,000 ‘excess votes’ across six battleground states.
Following the excess votes, it was claimed by the President that there were differences in absentees between counties that alleged fraud, deeming adjacent counties as suspectable.
The votes share questions of the Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and his claimed ‘victory’ over Trump.
Trump said in a Tweet claiming the 289,000 ‘excess votes’ claiming them as fraudulent.
“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. Check it out!”

The study (extract) reveals measures of alleged voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
“This study provides measures of vote fraud in the 2020 presidential election. It first compares Fulton county’s precincts that are adjacent to similar precincts in neighbouring counties that had no allegations of fraud to isolate the impact of Fulton county’s vote-counting process (including potential fraud),” read the paper extract.
“In measuring the difference in President Trump’s vote share of the absentee ballots for these adjacent precincts, we account for the difference in his vote share of the in-person voting and the difference in registered voters’ demographics. The best estimate shows an unusual 7.81% drop in Trump’s percentage of the absentee ballots for Fulton County alone of 11,350 votes, or over 80% of Biden’s vote lead in Georgia.”
“The estimates here indicate that there were 70,000 to 79,000 “excess” votes in Georgia and Pennsylvania. Adding Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin, the total increases to up to 289,000 excess votes.”
Since the November 3 Election Day, Trump and third-party legal teams and groups pursued challenges to change the election outcome in six key battleground states. None of the efforts so far have progressed typically because they’ve been dismissed before evidence is provided.
