I've heard many lawyers say that a case is won or lost during jury selection.

It's true.

It's along the lines of the saying, "the people who count the votes decide who wins an election".

There's no such thing as an unbiased jury. Anyone can be some secret activist that's just out to get you. The fact it has to be a unanimous jury decision and not a majority rule tells you all you need to know about the process. If 1 out of 12 people disagree, that person basically has to be persuaded, manipulated or gaslit by the remaining jurors into making a decision they didn't want to make in the first place.
