Don’t fall for ‘Benford Law’ trap...

Post by AJMD429 »

... It just makes our side look bad. “Benford’s Law” is only applicable when the data you were analyzing spreads over at least three or more orders of magnitude. Since voting precincts have a relatively uniform size, the rule definitely does not apply. It is important not to use arguments like this that are not valid, and instead focus on VALID fraud evidence, of which there is plenty...!

Sadly, even OANN falls for the trap: https://www.oann.com/evidence-of-voting ... -to-grows/

Some people will use any trick to avoid being caught in their duplicity.

I worry that sometimes people on the left even come up with stuff like this, then feed it to people on the right as a plausible anti-Biden argument, and then if it takes off they already have the ammunition to shoot it down. Kind of like some people think that Norton and McAfee design viruses that they’ve already got the cure for ready to launch. Anyway, although there are many VALID statistical arguments to be made that call Biden’s “win” into question, Benford’s Law doesn’t apply.
