An article in today’s ‘Counterpunch’, which was entitled “Did Hillary’s Machine Rig Iowa? The Highly Improbable Iowa Coin Tosses”, brought me back to my post from the 2nd of February and when I was first made aware of the coin tosses in the six Iowa precincts which were too difficult to call. My own scepticism regarding Hillary winning the toss in all six precincts was, perhaps, contained in the sentence that we “might wonder if we got to see both sides of the coin either before or after it was tossed.” In other words it was implied rather than explicit.
However, with the article in ‘Counterpunch’, I can be a little more explicit and apparently “the probability of winning all six tosses by chance alone is 1/64. That is 0.016 or 1.6 in 100 or 1.6%.” In other words it is highly likely that the coin tosses were not left to chance and that they were manipulated. Indeed, it is difficult not to ask the same question that the author of the article, John V. Walsh is asking, “Why has no one in the mainstream media looked into this?”
