News Georgia finishes risk-limiting audit, certifies election result of Biden victory in the state

Georgia election officials released a report Thursday evening on the results of the hand tally recount of the presidential election, affirming Joe Biden's lead in the state.

Shortly after the results were released, The Associated Press called Joe Biden as the winner of the state.

The AP called Biden the winner of the presidential race on Nov. 7.

The full hand recount of the state's 5 million presidential votes resulted in a narrowing of Biden's lead over President Trump in Georgia, but not nearly enough to change the result. He started out with a 14,000 vote lead, and now leads by just over 12,000 votes.

2000 votes for Joe disappeared, but not enough to turn the state.


That's not what happened. They found more ballots, and the net of that sum of votes were +2000 Trump.
It’s funny how it works. Regardless, I can see that being an honest mistake. I still hope the legal process takes it’s course until all parties are satisfied we arrived at the truth.

If anyone can't see how bent this is then there's no saving you. The whole point in the audit was to find and remove fraudulent votes. They've just done a recount of the same ballets INCLUDING any that are the result of fraud. What a complete joke the left are.
You can read the report and enlighten yourself, the link is in the OP.

If I give you ten sandwiches and you know that five of them have my shit in them and you ask for actual sandwiches, and I turn around and shuffle them around and serve you the same ten sandwiches including my poop filled ones you’re okay with that?
Man I just ate dinner.

And do you have any proof of this?

Are any Trump fans truly, at their core, surprised that millions more people dislike him, than like him? This vote was never in doubt, and i think it's likely that more Georgians will vote for the democrat senators now than a month ago, as a judgement on trump's fraud narrative.

We don’t know if that’s true, but what we do know is 73M do like him and that’s 10M more than in 2016.

So more like him now than when he first ran, enough to make him the highest voted incumbent of all time.

Yet Biden still has more because they were able to see what they needed to stuff the ballot boxes with under the guise of mail in voting.

I’m not sure that the scorched earth thing is paying off with voters. I see more Ossof/Warnock signs than Loeffler and Perdue. The stock/insider trading thing with Loeffler is getting major airtime here.

People worried about Trump when he’s already lost are missing a senate that might flip.

That's a misrepresentation of the facts, and like I'll give you the benefit of the doubt.. more people voted for him. The population of the US is about 300m, this election is unprecedented for having motivated about half that number to vote. Naturally, kids make up a fair chunk of the other half, but the fact is tens of millions of American adults don't vote - until trump motivated them to.

Trump got 10m of them to vote for him, which is a monument to how effectively his politics roused the non-political...

... But he got a hell of a lot more than 10m non-voters to vote for Biden. Like i said in another thread, i guess there are a few million more new blue voters than reds. (Ed- I edited a generalization I'm not happy with, you can find it in later posts targeting it ^_^)

In summary, there's absolutely nothing mysterious about him getting more votes but still losing. This election just got millions more people than usual, from both sides, to vote.

Edit: trump also lost key voter groups who got him into power (despite losing the popular vote) last election. He basically made inroads into cities in 2016, cities in the swing states are almost always hugely democratic.. this election was a re-establishment of the norm.

This was not an audit. Signature verification was not done and the rules were changed to 1 observer per 10 tables rather than the 1:1 - 1:4 that was requested. Banana Republic type shit.

What do you think is more likely? That a hyper politicised population voted in unprecedented numbers, or that millions of undetected, diffusely disseminated fabricated votes were stuffed into what every election official, republican or democrat, assets was a clean election?

Note before you answer that this forum stands testament to how activated many people have become by trump's policies - I've seen people speculating that sports leagues are going to fail because politics are so much more competitive~

I mean i know your answer is an easy "whatever you say i think the opposite", but Occam's razor and etc and etc.

Fake title, it was a recount aka counting same illegal votes, it's worthless. Funny thing is there was still 3k votes wrong.

Certainly the senate runoff is more important now. Biden won and could likely have the House and Senate while Trump still cries about the election.

Georgia did a full recount and found votes. They were never going to comb through every ballot to find if some were fake, so everything got counted.

Solid argument. I'm not really surprised that the groups of people that republicans traditionally make wait in 10 hour lines to vote, came out in bigger numbers when they were aware they had an option to just mail in that vote. You don't have to find dead people, just a shitload of people that never vote because of that voter suppression. Poetic justice really.

So it makes sense that Trump can increase his vote by 15% but it's weird that the Democrats increased theirs by 17%? Gotcha.

But didn't actually audit, just recounted. And that's still fucking absurd that 2,000 people who voted for Trump were counted for Biden.
that's not what an RLA does. among other things, it checks the accuracy of the votes. it checks for bugs, errors (both software and hardware), even intentional alteration of ballots.

Um, even before the 2020 election those people had the option to request an absentee mail in ballot, or vote in October before election day.

Georgia. We are not a bunch of dumbasses. We’re just slow and rode the short bus to school every day. Fucking embarrassment.

Again, Trump couldn't even win the popular vote in 2016. Why can't some people on this forum accept that Trump legitimately lost.
Cause most of prolific posters in Politics section are hardline Trump supporters and now engage in conspiracy theories, whataboutism and concern trolling trying to keep proving a non-existent fraud with dubious data and claims not based on any actual hard evidence?
Just look at titles of threads on the first page- it's quite literally a meltdown, alhtough predictably so.

These people live in alternative reality where OANN and Rudy and Trump are freedom fighters vs communism, media, evil Democratic socialist agenda, BLM terrorism and war in Middle East.

The first sensible post I've seen in a while.

The conspiracy theory dominant discussion is worrying.

I remember when this forum used to be above that. Shame to see how much it's fallen these past years.
