Statistician in Texas Lawsuit: Odds of Biden Winning Was 'One in a Quadrillion'
Professor Charles J. Cicchetti, Ph.D. says statistically impossible for Democrat to win
A Harvard statistician has said it was almost statistically impossible for Joe Biden to win the battleground states Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin, arguing the probability of such a victory would be "one in a quadrillion."
USC economics professor Charles J. Cicchetti, Ph.D. made the declaration in a lawsuit filed in the U.S. Supreme Court by Texas.
As Neon Nettle reported Tuesday, the State of Texas has filed a lawsuit directly with the SCOTUS, challenging the procedures during the presidential race in four battleground states.
The suit was filed on the grounds that the states violated the Constitution by breaching election rules.
Texas argues that the four states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution.
The Lone Star State says that these violations occurred because each of the four states made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.
Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution’s Equal Protection Clause.
Finally, Texas argues that there were “voting irregularities” in these states as a result of the above.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to block four battleground states – Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin - from casting “unlawful and constitutionally tainted votes” in the Electoral College.
Later on Tuesday, the court decided to take this case up.
In the filing, statistician Dr. Cicchetti notes that the probability of Joe Biden winning these four states was basically impossible.
The statement from Cicchetti is included as evidence in the lawsuit filed by Texas AG Ken Paxton, according to a report from the Election Wizard.
In the brief submitted to the Supreme Court, Texas includes a declaration from Pacific Economics Group member Dr. Cicchetti.
Dr. Cicchetti is the former Deputy Director at the Energy and Environmental Policy Center at Harvard University’s John Kennedy School of Government and received his Ph.D. in economics from Rutgers University.
According to Dr. Cicchetti, his calculations show the probability of Joe Biden winning the popular vote in the four states independently given President Trump’s early lead in those States as of 3 a.m. on November 4, 2020, is less than one in a quadrillion.
Dr. Cicchetti’s analysis calculates the probability of Joe Biden winning all four states collectively.
He concludes that the odds of that event happening decrease to less than one in a quadrillion to the fourth power (1 in 1 1,000,000,000,000,0004).
This analysis by a world-respected statistician will undoubtedly add weight to President Donald Trump's claims of election fraud.
It certainly shows that the presidential race is far from over.
