(TargetLiberty.org) – Alarm bells are ringing after Minnesota and Wisconsin – two key battleground states which have now been called for Biden – posted abnormally high turnout figures. This election has energized the American people in an unprecedented way, and turnout figures are up across the country – but not this much.

Voter turnout in US presidential elections is usually low; since the turn of the century, it’s run from 50.3% in 2000 to 59.2% in 2016, with most elections managing turnouts within a couple percent either side of 55. This year’s was expected to set records, with the turnout estimated at 67% – the highest in 150 years. But Minnesota and Wisconsin have posted numbers much higher than this, with Minnesota claiming 90% turnout and Wisconsin just behind at 89%.
Early analysis shows most states reporting turnouts from the mid-60s to mid-70s, with Florida pushing the boundaries at 79%. Then there’s a huge gap, with Minnesota and Wisconsin well clear of any other state. In 2016 these states managed 75% and 67% turnout respectively. Nationally, turnout looks to be around 8% higher than the last election – but, in two states that could decide the result and where Trump seemed to be polling strongly, it has allegedly jumped by 15% and 22%. It’s no wonder questions are being asked.
