Good one. Biden probably doesn't have eight months, let alone eight years. Hell, from the looks of the guy, he doesn't even have eight weeks.

Crow all you want, but your boy Biden will face impeachment in the last half of his first and only term as president. There’s actionable evidence on Biden’s corruption and extortion and action will be taken against him. That is if Harris doesn’t oust him first. You democrats got a real can of worms on your hands. It’s going to be hilarious watching your incompetent freak parade.

except that it's clear they don't know how to count, so will they even know that?

The math being pushed:

In 2018 there were 213,799,467 registered voters. In the 2020 US Presidential election, there was a 66.2% voter turn out; 213,799.467 multiplied by 66.2% yields 141,535,247 votes cast. If 74,216,747 votes were cast for President Trump, then there were 67,318,500 votes not cast for Trump. How did Joe Biden get 81,268,867 votes? FRAUD!

Does anyone else see the flaw in the above computation?

Default Truth be damned!

.
When you win a record low 17% of counties, lose Black & Hispanic support, lose 18/19 Bellwether Counties, lose Ohio, Florida, & Iowa — and lose 27/27 House "Toss-Ups" — but you shatter the popular vote record❗️

Instead of posing a rhetorical question why don't you scrutinize what the OP says with known data? It's okay to want to be on the side of the "cool kids" but it's important that the cool kids aren't just regurgitating what the MSM is putting on the telescreen.

REVEALED: ‘Simple Math’ Shows Biden Claims 13 MILLION More Votes Than There Were Eligible Voters Who Voted in 2020 Election

(39)With 212Million registered voters and 66.2% voting,140.344 M voted. Now if Trump got 74 M, that leaves only 66.344 M for Biden..
AP's numbers in the early going where 148 million votes had been counted, showed about 62% voting = 148/238

WAPO used approximately the same denominator of 238. Where 155.5mil/238 = 65%

From your own link totaling to 212million however, there were a number of populous states that only had their registered voter count as of 3/1/2020 like Texas, Illinois and Ohio just to name a few.

You probably just didn't read the right hand margin.

So, basically you guys are using different registered voter totals but you're then applying their percentage to you're 212mil which is clearly labeled in your own source as not being up to date.

Now, I can't vouch that the 238 number is correct but it's what they used to come up with the percentages. Whether it's correct or not, that means the articles findings are inherently bad math.

What you need to ask yourself is whether your news source was purposefully lying to you or just made an error. Since they're journalists playing with numbers, I'd give them the benefit of the doubt of just being innumerate.

With breaking videos like this - (Mi volunteers being told to 'count ballots' with the same signature, despite their objections ) now finally leaking out - it's obvious why: https://rumble.com/vbzvpp-the-third-...l-lake-tw.html

Why? It's a fair testament to people willing to believe literally anything placed in front of them.

Here we have attempt #2 which also isn't correct and I don't think this thread should be deleted either.

Why? Because when attempts #3 and #4 using similar number sets and bad math emerge, it's useful to point back to those as a reminder that people REGARDLESS of party need to have their eyes wide open as people are clearly throwing a lot of garbage out in the media etc.
