55. what makes you think I haven't?
The reason I didn't suggest using other elections is that (much of) MA has used scanners for a while, so when I demonstrate to you (in case you didn't already notice) that the relationship between Obama and Coakley vote shares looks pretty damn similar for hand count and scanner jurisdictions, you can retort that I'm assuming that Obama's vote counts were right. If we use registration data, I suppose you could assert that that was swapped, too, but it's more of a stretch.

But all this is too subtle, perhaps. If you really think that the Coakley and Brown counts were swapped on scanners throughout the state, then you must think that Brown won Boston. Yes?

If you don't think that (and it would behoove you not to), then you have some work to do.
