A researcher at the Department of Justice on Tuesday released a 25-page report indicating a high probability of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. World-renown economist John Lott Ph.D., examined election results from Pennsylvania and Georgia, as well as potential election fraud in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin.

“This paper’s approach allows us to quantify how large a potential problem vote fraud and other abnormalities might be in the 2020 election,” Dr. Lott wrote.

White House advisor Peter Navarro heralded Lott’s study results on Twitter:

Navarro released his own study of six contested states earlier this month, alleging “a coordinated strategy” to steal the election, “or unfairly tilt the playing field in favor of the Biden-Harris ticket.”

Lott’s study compared Fulton County Georgia’s precincts to similar precincts in neighboring counties that had no allegations of fraud. The purpose of the exercise, Lott wrote, was “to isolate the impact of Fulton county’s vote-counting process (including potential fraud).”

In 2016, there was little difference between Fulton County and its surrounding counties, according to Lott. But in 2020, with  controls for demographic and in-person voting variables, he found that President Trump’s percentage of absentee votes was 7.81 percent lower in Fulton county than precincts in neighboring counties.

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.

“In layman’s terms, in precincts with alleged fraud, Trump’s proportion of absentee votes was depressed – even when such precincts had similar in-person Trump vote shares to their surrounding countries. The fact that the shift happens only in absentee ballots, and when a country line is crossed, is suspicious,” Lott said.

Lott applied the same approach to Allegheny County in Pennsylvania for both absentee and provisional ballots and estimated that “the number of fraudulent votes from those two sources” was about 55,270 votes.

“The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden’s win in both states,” said Lott.

He also examined the suspiciously high turnout rates in the two states.

“Increased fraud can take many forms: higher rates of filling out absentee ballots for people who hadn’t voted, dead people voting, ineligible people voting, or even payments to legally registered people for their votes,” Lott wrote.
