9. strictly speaking
I believe the prevailing explanations are: (1) millions of votes were stolen in 2006, and perhaps dozens of House seats, but a late Democratic surge overcame the fraud; (2) a variant of 1 (including the speculation that Prop 8 actually lost), and/or the notion that the vote-stealers took this election off because Obama's margin was clearly going to be too large, and to lull us into complacency.

I don't believe any of this.
Bottom line, these machines are bad because they're unreliable and insecure, not because they're portable versions of Tammany Hall.

Nailed it!
