Bannon 'strongly' believes Trump won New Hampshire in 2016

AP  |  Manchester (US) 

Former adviser Steve Bannon says he "strongly" believes that Republican President Donald Trump won New Hampshire and that voter irregularities were behind his loss in the state in the 2016 presidential

Bannon made the comments yesterday at a Manchester fundraiser for the conservative group 603 Alliance.

Democrat won New Hampshire and all four of the state's electoral votes.

Trump has cited New Hampshire as part of his unsubstantiated claims that millions of people voted illegally in 2016. He created the Presidential Advisory Commission on Integrity in May to investigate those claims.

Bannon says his claims are supported by state data that shows that only 15 percent of the 6,540 voters who used out- of-state driver's licenses have since acquired New Hampshire licenses.
