One of the reasons so many Americans have a hard time accepting the outcome of the 2020 election is that in order to believe that Biden won fairly, you must first accept the premise that he received a record number of votes. More than Obama who was an inspirational candidate for Democrats.
This defies common sense. Add that to all the shenanigans people have seen with their own eyes and it just doesn’t add up.
Now an economist who is an expert in statistics is calling the numbers into question.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Expert: Biden win ‘suspicious,’ 289,000 election-changing ‘excess’ votes
An analysis of the 2020 presidential vote suggests that there were 289,000 “excess” votes for Joe Biden in states his victory over President Trump was small, and that differences in votes by neighbors were “suspicious.”
The study by economist John R. Lott Jr., noted for his statistical analysis of guns in America, called into question the victories declared for Biden in Pennsylvania and Georgia and cast a cloud over those in Nevada, Arizona, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
“The precinct level estimates for Georgia and Pennsylvania indicate that vote fraud may account for Biden’s win in both states. The voter turnout rate data also indicates that there are significant excess votes in Arizona, Michigan, Nevada, and Wisconsin as well,” wrote Lott in his report tweeted earlier today by Trump.
Lott, quoted often by Secrets on gun issues, and recently named a senior adviser for research and statistics at the Office of Justice Programs, presented his report as an independent model that shows the potential for fraud and other voting problems that should be considered as courts sort through suits challenging the election results.

Trump tweeted it out too:
New Lott study estimates 11,350 absentee votes lost to Trump in Georgia. Another 289,000 "excess (fraudulent) votes" across GA, AZ, MI, NV, PA, and WI. Check it out! ➡️https://t.co/eIBjdmox5R pic.twitter.com/2MlKVbBoLO

No matter how this turns out, millions of Americans will never believe it was free of fraud.
