There have been a lot of questions raised about fraud and irregularities in this election.
One of the reasons that people question is the other numbers and results in the election.
One of the things that isn’t getting a lot of coverage in mainstream media is just how well the Republicans did, contrary to predictions. While even Fox, incorrectly, projected a Democratic gain in the House on Election Night, in fact, as we reported, the Republicans picked up at least 12 seats and will likely have more before the final count is in. Of the four remaining House races to be determined (how are they not determined yet?!), Republicans are leading in all four and likely to get 15, which would give the Democrats a bare majority by just a handful of votes.
As Cook Political Report explained, there were 27 races in the House considered “toss-ups.” Not only did Republicans win every single one of those toss-ups but they also picked up seven of the 36 seats that Cook had predicted as “likely Democrat” or “lean Democrat.”
In the Senate, of the seven toss-ups, Republicans won five, the other two are the Georgia races still to be determined in January. They also won all four races that were “lean Republican.” Which means they only need one of the races in January to hold their majority.
Even in the statehouse races, Republicans won “almost every election where redistricting was at stake” and didn’t turn any statehouse while Republicans did flip the Senate and the House in New Hampshire, as the Washington Examiner observed.
“Republicans are set to control the redistricting of 188 congressional seats — or 43 percent of the entire House of Representatives. By contrast, Democrats will control the redistricting of, at most, 73 seats, or 17 percent,” Silver wrote.
The Republicans scarcely could have done any better than they did. By any measure, it was a “red wave.” Far different from what Democrats or media were predicting.
So that should, one would think, make for a Trump win, along with all the other bellwether numbers such as consumer confidence, enthusiasm, and incumbent advantage. Should we believe that the battleground states somehow have such a vastly different result from these other races where Republicans prevailed? Should we think that Trump had a 94 percent approval rate among Republicans but that all these folks who voted for House and Senate Republicans didn’t vote for him in the critical states? That all those other numbers that based on historical precedent predicted Trump all just failed in the final analysis?
Here’s Steve Cortes raising the point about the House, as well as pointing out some other bellwether numbers that pointed to Trump.
Bellwether counties add to the long list of election anomalies that ALL somehow line up in Biden’s favor. My latest breakdown on the numbers…pic.twitter.com/zvfI3Nq8RI

The problem, of course, is that while a Biden win may not appear to make sense and the stats militate against it, you still have to be able to show the evidence in order to be able to flip it.
