22. ?
BTW there is a difference between random sampling and random sampling error. Statistical errors are factored in, after the sampling of the population set.

Certainly there is a difference between sampling and error; I think we all know that. I don't see what bearing that has on any of the other claims you've made in this thread.
But more importantly, 12 out of the 13 swing states in this election will be vunerable to undetected vote miscounts, with no audits possible in almost half of these states!

I'd be interested to see your list; that "almost half" seems high to me. Maybe it depends on what we mean by "possible." Regardless, post-election audits this year will not be what they should be.

Again, this point doesn't seem connected to any of the other points you've made.
