71. sorry, I don't understand this response
The pre-marked Brown votes would be discarded as over votes IF they were cast with Coakley added...

OK, let's please rewind to the OP:
How did the optical scanners that are now all owned by the Republicans perform compared with hand counting?
No surprises, they flipped the Coakley and Brown totals....

The variation in these confirms that the Coakley/Brown figures were flipped on the Republican machines, and that Coakley's votes were undercounted on the lever machines.

So, are you telling me that by "they flipped the Coakley and Brown totals," you actually meant that they pre-marked many ballots for Brown? and, apparently, only about four voters in the entire state noticed? I'm willing to entertain that hypothesis, but I'm feeling a bit dizzy. :)
...there is no way that vote counting method should correlate perfectly with results unless tampered with.

Who says that it correlates perfectly? You seem to be using statistical terms in a remarkably freehand way.

I think before we worry about comparing my raw numbers with yours, we should get the terms of your analysis clear.
