Yikes, maybe more than the average citizen, but I'm not sure I'd even speculate that.Maybe he knows more about it than the average citizen.
Waste of time, resources and taxpayer money. The things that conservatives rail on constantly regardless of how insignificant it is. Unless you're a conspiracy theorist, it doesn't take much critical thought to know the conclusion to this "investigation": nowhere near 3 million, or even 300 votes are due to voter fraud.At the end of the day, why does anyone care if this investigation is done? Let it be done. If there is none than we can move on and end the debate. Not sure how it's an issue lol.
Studies have been done in the past that show how truly insignificant voter fraud is and the cases that do show up tend to be Republican ventures. I would go find the articles, but ya know, #FakeNews , #AlternativeFacts and all that jazz...

Steve Bannon registered to vote in two states despite Trump's cries of 'voter fraud'
Commentary I've copied before someone starts brushing this off talking about the legality of this:
The standard players on here always make this comment in regards to democrats as if their **** don't stink - so I'll rebut: the hypocrisy on the right is ****ing staggering. If not moreso, then at least as equal as the left.The problem is that Trump is using voter rolls showing person A being on the roll in Alabama and Georgia at the same time as evidence of massive voter fraud. Or that person B died in 2015 but was still on the roll in 2016.
And it's actually not legal to be registered in two different states. You can only legally have 1 primary residence according the federal government. That's what voter registration goes off, where your primary residence is. The issue is that there's no requirement to inform your old municipality that you've moved away, or that your grandmother died. So those voter rolls don't get updated constantly, only audited infrequently based on if you've not voted in the last x# of elections.
That's how people end up on multiple voter rolls, or dead people showing up on them. As an example, lets say your state's policy is to automatically purge someone that hasn't voted in the last 2 general elections (because not voting in one may just mean you couldn't get off work or didn't like the candidates, skipping two shows that you don't actually want to vote or aren't there anymore and you'll have to re-register in order to vote there again) and the purge happens 2 years before the next one to give people who lapsed time to see and re-register, that's 10 years that a person could be on the rolls without even being alive or living there (say they voted in 2000, died or moved in 2002, obviously didn't vote there in 2004 or 2008, their name wouldn't be purged until 2010.
Trump's position is that that person dying in 2002 and still being on the rolls because the purge didn't happen until 2012 is evidence of fraud in the 2004 and 2008 elections because their name was still on there.
Using voter rolls as evidence of voter fraud is a huge issue because it undermines the process and is designed to plant doubt in the people's minds about how legitimate the process is. If he really thinks there was widespread voter fraud, his evidence should be voter tally's from the polling places showing that Person A was checked off as voting at polling place Y as well as polling place Z, or that Person B died in 2013 and was checked off as voting in 2016.
There is 0 evidence of that at all.
Wait, it gets better:I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and....
