So, during quarantine I watched an episode of a show called Connected on Netflix and learned, for the first time, about Benford's law. It is an extraordinary bit of math and very intriguing. Also, after taking so many math classes, it was pretty cool to learn something new at the ripe old age of 50-something.
Anyway - google Benford's law and you will learn that the distribution of the first digits of any set of counted numbers follow a certain pattern - that counted numbers are far more likely to start with a 1 than a 9. Yes, it sounds wrong. But it is true. And it is a law, not a theory.
Election results are counted numbers so Benford's law can be used to determine if the numbers have been manipulated artificially. I was looking to see if I could get election data in tabular form to do the analysis, and then found this:
It's just numbers but to me tells a significant story.
Here is someone who took the graphs and added some commentary:
If the numbers are right and the analysis is correct, I consider this to be proof positive that there was some manipulation of the vote counts. I wonder if it will come to light at all.
