5 More Ways Joe Biden Magically Outperformed Election Norms
Surely the journalist class should be intrigued by the historic implausibility of Joe Biden’s victory. That they are not is curious, to say the least.
By J.B. Shurk
In all the excitement among objective journalists for Joe Biden’s declared victory, reporters are missing how extraordinary the Democrat’s performance was in the 2020 election. It’s not just that the former vice president is on track to become the oldest president in American history, it’s what he managed to accomplish at the polls this year.

Candidate Joe Biden was so effective at animating voters in 2020 that he received a record number of votes, more than 15 million more than Barack Obama received in his re-election of 2012. Amazingly, he managed to secure victory while also losing in almost every bellwether county across the country. No presidential candidate has been capable of such electoral jujitsu until now.


While Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 totals in every urban county in the United States, he outperformed her in the metropolitan areas of Georgia, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Even more surprising, the former VP put up a record haul of votes, despite Democrats’ general failures in local House and state legislative seats across the nation.

He accomplished all this after receiving a record low share of the primary vote compared to his Republican opponent heading into the general election. Clearly, these are tremendous and unexpected achievements that would normally receive sophisticated analysis from the journalist class but have somehow gone mostly unmentioned during the celebrations at news studios in New York City and Washington, D.C.

The massive national political realignment now taking place may be one source of these surprising upsets. Yet still, to have pulled so many rabbits out of his hat like this, nobody can deny that Biden is a first-rate campaigner and politician, the likes of which America has never before seen. Let’s break down just how unique his political voodoo has been in 2020.

1. 80 Million Votes
Holy moly! A lot of Americans turned out for a Washington politician who’s been in office for nearly 50 years. Consider this: no incumbent president in nearly a century and a half has gained votes in a re-election campaign and still lost.


President Trump gained more than ten million votes since his 2016 victory, but Biden’s appeal was so substantial that it overcame President Trump’s record support among minority voters. Biden also shattered Barack Obama’s own popular vote totals, really calling into question whether it was not perhaps Biden who pulled Obama across the finish lines in 2008 and 2012.

Proving how sharp his political instincts are, the former VP managed to gather a record number of votes while consistently trailing President Trump in measures of voter enthusiasm. Biden was so savvy that he motivated voters unenthusiastic about his campaign to vote for him in record numbers.

2. Winning Despite Losing Most Bellwether Counties
Biden is set to become the first president in 60 years to lose the states of Ohio and Florida on his way to election. For a century, these states have consistently predicted the national outcome, and they have been considered roughly representative of the American melting pot as a whole. Despite national polling giving Biden a lead in both states, he lost Ohio by eight points and Florida by more than three.

For Biden to lose these key bellwethers by notable margins and still win the national election is newsworthy. Not since the Mafia allegedly aided John F. Kennedy in winning Illinois over Richard Nixon in 1960 has an American president pulled off this neat trick.


Even more unbelievably, Biden is on his way to winning the White House after having lost almost every historic bellwether county across the country. The Wall Street Journal and The Epoch Times independently analyzed the results of 19 counties around the United States that have nearly perfect presidential voting records over the last 40 years. President Trump won every single bellwether county, except Clallam County in Washington.

Whereas the former VP picked up Clallam by about three points, President Trump’s margin of victory in the other 18 counties averaged over 16 points. In a larger list of 58 bellwether counties that have correctly picked the president since 2000, Trump won 51 of them by an average of 15 points, while the other seven went to Biden by around four points. Bellwether counties overwhelmingly chose President Trump, but Biden found a path to victory anyway.

3. Biden Trailed Clinton Except in a Select Few Cities
Patrick Basham, a pollster with an accurate track record and the director of the Democracy Institute in D.C., highlighted two observations made by fellow colleagues, polling guru Richard Baris of Big Data Poll and Washington Post election analyst Robert Barnes. Baris noted a statistical oddity from 2020’s election returns: “Biden underperformed Hillary Clinton in every major metro area around the country, save for Milwaukee, Detroit, Atlanta and Philadelphia.”

Barnes added that in those “big cities in swing states run by Democrats…the vote even exceeded the number of registered voters.” In the states that mattered most, so many mail-in ballots poured in for Biden from the cities that he put up record-breaking numbers and overturned state totals that looked like comfortable leads for President Trump.


If Democrats succeed in eliminating the Electoral College, Biden’s magic formula for churning out overwhelming vote totals in a handful of cities should make the Democrats unbeatable.

4. Biden Won Despite Democrat Losses Everywhere Else
Randy DeSoto noted in The Western Journal that “Donald Trump was pretty much the only incumbent president in U.S. history to lose his re-election while his own party gained seats in the House of Representatives.” Now that’s a Biden miracle!

In 2020, The Cook Political Report and The New York Times rated 27 House seats as toss-ups going into Election Day. Right now, Republicans appear to have won all 27. Democrats failed to flip a single state house chamber, while Republicans flipped both the House and Senate in New Hampshire and expanded their dominance of state legislatures across the country.

Christina Polizzi, a spokesperson for the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee, went so far as to state: “It’s clear that Trump isn’t an anchor for the Republican legislative candidates. He’s a buoy.” Amazingly, Biden beat the guy who lifted all other Republicans to victory. Now that’s historic!

5. Biden Overcame Trump’s Commanding Primary Vote
In the past, primary vote totals have been remarkably accurate in predicting general election winners. Political analyst David Chapman highlighted three historical facts before the election.

First, no incumbent who has received 75 percent of the total primary vote has lost re-election. Second, President Trump received 94 percent of the primary vote, which is the fourth highest of all time (higher than Dwight Eisenhower, Nixon, Clinton, or Obama). In fact, Trump is only one of five incumbents since 1912 to receive more than 90 percent of the primary vote.

Third, Trump set a record for most primary votes received by an incumbent when more than 18 million people turned out for him in 2020 (the previous record, held by Bill Clinton, was half that number). For Biden to prevail in the general election, despite Trump’s historic support in the primaries, turns a century’s worth of prior election data on its head.

Joe Biden achieved the impossible. It’s interesting that many more journalists aren’t pointing that out.

Why does everyone keep lying about Philadelphia!?!

Biden did not perform better than Clinton! He got more votes barely but Trump had a larger percentage of the votes than he did against Clinton.

2020 Election -Philly
Biden - 603k - 81.4%
Trump - 132k - 17.9%

2016 Election - Philly
Clinton - 584k - 82.3%
Trump - 108k - 15.3%

Again... the numbers are well within reason for the larger turnout and Trump improved from 2016!

People claiming they are good at math are really bad at it!

Once again, go look at the red counties in PA... Trump lost his 2016 percentage win in the majority of red counties by a few percentage points. Moderate voters in red and “pink” counties voted for Biden and Biden gained 2000 votes in the majority of red counties across the swing states. Go audit the red counties... that’s where Biden really won!

You guys are barking up the wrong tree in these Democratic cities. It’s not why Trump lost.

Is this just a claim? Or a fact... is there evidence that all 900 military ballots are for Biden? Did Georgia release a breakdown of the military vote yet or is this just another claim pulled out of someone’s ass to make the election look fraudulent?

This is indeed a legitimate question.

But consider this, did this thing really get the greatest number of votes for president, as a percentage of the population, in all of history?



Watch that, and take one good fucking look at the senile old fucking pederast asshole the nation, supposedly, elected as "president". You watch and listen to that, carefully. That is supposedly who our nation elected. We have news blackouts, we have censorship, we have "fact checkers" contesting what people write, we have ambiguity of the elections. Do you actually think we elected that fuck? "My name is Joe Biden, Vice president of Biden" - that is is 0:23 - the man is literally out of his goddamned mind. He shouldn't even be allowed to have a driver's license, much less be prezdident meat puppet.

Watch it. The man is out of his goddamned mind, you honestly think he got the largest vote in all of history as a percentage of the population? Do you actually believe that? A man that couldn't get 50 people to show up at a campaign event, got the largest vote, in all of American history who is clearly out of his fucking mind? Do you actually believe that?

If Trump was some big joke of a president, what the fuck is this? We have to pretend now, for the next 4 years, this old senile cunt was elected? We just had a coup, or the nation is a shitload stupider than I thought it was, and I thought it was stupid 4 years ago. I have a difficult time imagining it's worse than I believed, because I'm an extreme cynic. I don't have a high regard for the average intelligence of people, and there is no pleasantness in that - believe me.

Have you ever seen an average Trump rally supporter? Talk about low intelligence! Trump gaffe videos are a dime dozen also. This senile argument is very weak.... everyone has their bad days and Trump has as well. I don’t judge people on their worst days.

Both sides have morons and despicable people rooting for their guy. Presidents are figure heads and people are voting to move the needle for the most part.

Those videos are manipulated and edited man. It was 4 years of propaganda from the left. A lot of people fell for it man. It was very well coordinated. I realized it when I simply researched facts on a few early on.

What part of Benford's law is so hard to understand? Votes are distributed in an inverse asymptotic slope over days, there are no sudden 600k jumps where one candidate gets 99.45% of the votes. It's statistically impossible. Counting mail in ballots last is a convenient excuse but invalidates any election instantly. Why not have a 1MM vote batch coming in 5 days later for bi-den?! How about 10MM? It's mail in ballots duh! Benford's law is there for an reason, if it's violated then the process is improper.

Yup. There's also a reason his wife is by his side in a lot of his appearances. She's the one that lives with him and can try to reel him in when he gets off track. She knows when it could go south or how he's feeling that day. Staffers and others won't be able to control him. I don't think people really understand what they voted for assuming the results are legit.
