If it teaches us anything the elections are rigged. What are the statistics that virtually every election is ending up 50.1% / 49.9%?

[–] Rawrination 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

The reasons for this are many. Gerymandering is one of them. Straight up election fraud by the owners or controllers of the voting machines / vote counting, dead people voting democrat, and the nature of this particular area.

Are you serious or have you not heard of the law of large numbers?

If the law of big numbers would apply here then why do third parties in america not get 1/3rd of the votes?

That law only applies if the outcome is determined by random input. This should only apply if voters flip a coin or roll a dice to determine whom they vote.

Law of large numbers is not applicable to what he said.

Law means if you sample a few hundred people you can be pretty sure your sample reflects the population Of any size.

Lots of elections being 51 v 49 is either fraud or both sidestep are just very good At targeting and telling voters what they want to hear.

On a deeper level, for any proposition, it’s opposite is constructed and considered by someone’s else.

this makes me feel like we live in a simulation

Not OP, but I assure you that it does not apply here, as it assumes that every person has a 50/50 chance of being either R or D.

Like another user said it's the law of averages / law of large numbers. If it wasn't reliably accurate, we wouldn't have casinos.

Except for the fact that we're not talking about coin flipping. We're talking about how to live as a decent human beings and choose who governs us... To me the law of averages says there should be enough non-dumbass retards out there to understand what the Democrats have become... But alas, brainwashing works and so does election rigging. I've learned to just be entertained or tune out. I'll still vote, but I'm skeptical they aren't flipped. They need to implement a decentralized blockchain voting system that allows me to privately check on my vote's status and prevent fuckery.

Law of large number six has nothing to do with close races, it just means that if you take a sample of a few hundred people your poll will usually be pretty close to the population no matter how’s big it is
