Pollster Patrick Basham calls Biden’s victory “deeply puzzling” and “statistically implausible”

Appearing with Mark Levin Pollster Patrick Basham called Biden’s election victory “deeply puzzling” and “not statistically impossible” but “statistically implausible.”

Basham explained to Levin “In 2016, they all indicated strongly that Donald Trump would win against most of the public polling. That was again the case in 2020. So 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 … 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 of the others.”

Basham later expressed skepticism in absentee ballot rejection rates.

“Rejection rates, which in the primaries earlier this year were well into the double-digits and which historically have often been very, very high in these key swing states, or at least in the key swing counties, we’re seeing rejection rates of less than 1%, often very close to to zero,” he said. “Given the increase in absentee balloting and the lack of experience that most of the new voters and those doing the counting would have with those ballots, it is implausible, to put it politely, that that figure would be as low as it was.”
