Analysis: How Georgia proves Trump has no chance of winning
November 21, 2020 at 14:09
That hasn't stopped President Donald Trump and his campaign from claiming without any proof that there was wide scale fraud in the 2020 election.
The truth, as confirmed by an audit of Georgia's votes, is that Biden won this election.
Yet, even with a more involved process, Georgia's count in the presidential race before the audit was largely confirmed.
Biden was up by 14,156 votes before the audit , according to the Secretary of State's office.
Both the audit count and final certified count on Friday showed Biden ahead by more than 12,000 votes, per the Secretary of State's office.
In other words, the Georgia count is consistent with the idea that this election was well run and on the level.
Look at the swing states that Biden won in 2020 that Trump carried in 2016.
Biden's advantage in Arizona is north of 0.30 points, greater than 0.60 points in Wisconsin, and more than a point in Pennsylvania.
In Michigan, whose state legislative leaders met with Trump on Friday, Biden's ahead by nearly 3 points.
Beyond Georgia, Trump would need to win at least two recounts where Biden's advantage is at least 8 times as large as the shift that we saw in the Georgia audit.
When Al Gore was trying to win Florida in 2000 to become president, his deficit after Election Night was 0.03 points .
History and statistics say it's time for Trump to give up the battle.
