RIGGED: Vote Flipping Gave Romney 57,00-Vote Victory Over Santorum (a reminder from Michael Collins)

don't worry yur little heads, the machines will choose Rmoney:

Rigged Elections for Romney?
By Michael Collins, on October 22nd, 2012

.........................

Vote flipping gave Romney a 57,000-vote victory over Santorum in
Wisconsin. Absent vote flipping, Santorum would have won over Romney by
about 54,000 according the group’s analysis.

Was Wisconsin the only state where Romney’s share of the vote increased in this way as precinct size increased?

There were eleven states that showed this amazing anomaly,
Romney gaining in votes and margins as precinct size increased.
The
chart below shows the estimated vote flipping for eleven of the fifty
states analyzed by the group using precinct-level data.






Take a look at data for the Ohio Republican primary. A similar pattern emerges as seen in the graph below. Romney percentages increase from 30% in the smaller precincts to 38% as precinct size increases. The slope of increased votes for Romney violates acceptable levels for probability and must attributed to external intervention. The 65,777 estimated flipped votes provided Romney with a win over Santorum instead of a loss.



Why attribute the anomaly to intervention rather than an innocent trend? Consider what happens when there is no opportunity for human intervention through voting machines or central tabulators. Ohio has a variety of computerized voting systems. The results are recorded by computer at the precinct level and transferred to a central tabulator operated by election officials. Similarly, the vast majority of votes in Wisconsin are cast using electronic voting machines and central tabulators. However, eight counties still use paper ballots that are counted at the precinct level. The paper ballot counties have no central tabulators. They show no pattern of vote flipping.

1. I knew about the Ohio situation, and I had questions about Wisconsin

but this clarifies Wisconsin in a way I had not seen before. Invaluable information. Thanks for posting.

2. And I guess there's no way to see the results at the precinct level

even though recorded by computer - before transfer to the central tabulator?

Or is there a way to test or view the tabulator before it gets checked?

Can the flipping be done remotely?

My head hurts!

4. I'm going to write about this again.

The main point is this flipping surely seems to be happening based on a look at the data by candidate and precinct size.

Right now, it seems like there are several ways it can be done. That will be out shortly.

These are computerized devices made by "worst-in-class" technology companies so, aside from political motivation for back doors and other security problems, they technology is not that good to begin with.

5. Good going, I will check it out

IN the larger source,his friends own them all.

How absurd to have 3rd parties take and count the votes, 3rd parties who refuse to let the public look at how it's done.

6. kpete - thanks so uch for posting this


I hope the Democratic Party is paying attention. The methods of checkingi for this are not that difficult if you have the formula to sort the raw data - precinct level results. The researchers are willing to share their technique to interested parties.
