Hillary 6 out of 6 coin tosses won in Iowa… and now Clinton wins precinct with lucky ace in Nevada — It’s all legit, right?

Posted 02/20/2016 4:27 pm by

She has won 7 games of chance in a row officiated by the democratic party. It’s all legit, right?


As Hillary Clinton battles Bernie Sanders in Saturday’s Nevada Democratic caucuses, she got help from an unlikely source: a lucky ace.


In Las Vegas fashion, ties among caucusgoers are settled by pulling from a deck of cards. The higher number wins, and card ties are broken by suit.


In Precinct 10, Clinton drew an ace while Sanders drew a six, according to a tweet from a Wall Street Journal reporter. That, the paper reported, gave Clinton three delegates to Sanders’s two from that precinct.


The tie-breaking procedure was used at least twice in 2008, the first year the state Democratic Party switched to the caucus process.


The rules are similar to the controversial coin flips that decided several precincts in Iowa.




Ok, she won all six of the coin tosses. The odds against winning six out of six coin flips are 64-to-1 against, or 1.56 percent. If we add a random draw of the cards into this, how EXTREMELY unlucky is Bernie Sanders?


Post in comments if you have some numbers!

    I think the odds against flipping six heads or six tails in a row are 720 – 1

    1 in 25.75 times the 1 in 64 totals 1 in 1643 ,,,ouch

    The odds on ‘six in a row’ are 1/2 to the power 6 or 1 in 64. The odds on drawing a high card, when one participant has to win (cannot be a draw when the rank of suits are included) is 1 in 2.
    Therefore her odds of winning 7 times in a row are 1 in 128.
    Clinton is renowned for her honesty and “Fairness”, no-one could accuse her of cheating.
    But if I were Bernie, I would stay well away from Alabama State Troopers, Washington Parks and small planes.

      Oops, Arkansas not Alabama, but watching Youtube I guess all state Troopers should be avioded.
