Anyone who has been paying close attention KNOWS that Basham is not the first.
Many statistical and polling experts have come forward and are saying the same thing.
They’re saying that the numbers don’t add up……What’s more is that they are citing statistical improbabilities and impossibilities like Benford’s Law, among other things.
I have said it time and time again, math does not lie. statistical analysis does not lie.

The Spectator came through with the nitty-gritty
First, consider some facts. President Trump received more votes than any previous incumbent seeking reelection. He got 11 million more votes than in 2016, the third largest rise in support ever for an incumbent. By way of comparison, President Obama was comfortably reelected in 2012 with 3.5 million fewer votes than he received in 2008.
Trump’s vote increased so much because, according to exit polls, he performed far better with many key demographic groups. Ninety-five percent of Republicans voted for him. He did extraordinarily well with rural male working-class whites.
Trump grew his support among black voters by 50 percent over 2016. Nationally, Joe Biden’s black support fell well below 90 percent, the level below which Democratic presidential candidates usually lose.
Trump increased his share of the national Hispanic vote to 35 percent. With 60 percent or less of the national Hispanic vote, it is arithmetically impossible for a Democratic presidential candidate to win Florida, Arizona, Nevada, and New Mexico. Bellwether states swung further in Trump’s direction than in 2016. Florida, Ohio and Iowa each defied America’s media polls with huge wins for Trump. Since 1852, only Richard Nixon has lost the Electoral College after winning this trio, and that 1960 defeat to John F. Kennedy is still the subject of great suspicion.
The Red State Observer had even more to say:
“To say out-loud that you find the results of the 2020 presidential election odd is to invite derision. You must be a crank or a conspiracy theorist. Mark me down as a crank, then.”
“I am a pollster and I find this election to be deeply puzzling,” Basham continued.
“Something very strange happened in America’s democracy in the early hours of Wednesday November 4 and the days that followed. It’s reasonable for a lot of Americans to want to find out exactly what.”
Basham explained to Levin what that “very strange” something was.
“If we are to accept that Biden won, against the trend of all these non-polling metrics, it not only means that one of these metrics was inaccurate this time, for the first time ever. It means that each one of these metrics was wrong for the first time and at the same time as all the others. It is not statistically impossible, but it is statistically implausible.”
One thing Basham finds troubling is the number of votes Biden received — which currently stands at more than 81 million — as a challenger, particularly given that he did poorly across the country; “except where it absolutely mattered,” that is.
