If you believe the official tally of the 2016 presidential race, Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by a margin of 2.9 million ballots. But are those numbers rigged? If there’s one thing that the early days of Trump’s regime has shown us, there are facts, and then there are alternative facts.

The media have been quick to point out that Trump’s claim that between three and five million illegal votes were cast this cycle is “absurd,” as The Washington Post put it, or a “lie,” according to The New York TimesBut so far, no reporter has asked about Trump’s insistence that all of those votes went for his opponent. Maybe we can assume that the “illegals” split 65-35 for Clinton — roughly the same as Hispanic and Asian citizens — but voters who moved and remained registered at their old address shouldn’t skew significantly toward one party or the other, and those who died would presumably be older and whiter — the very Fox News demographic that heavily favors the Republican Party.
