Did using the old voting machines allow deBlasio to win?

This year, New York's Mayoral primary was held on the old lever-style voting machines, instead of the electronic black boxes that had been forced onto voters after the Bush coup of December, 2000.

Would the people who controlled the electronic machines, and who uniformly prefer conservative candidates, have allowed a liberal like deBlasio to actually win? Look at all the buildup the "third way" and conservative media gave their anointed darling, Christine Quinn. If the hackable machines had been in control is there any doubt that we would have heard endless news stories this morning about "the polls were wrong" and Quinn's "stunning come from behind victory?"

deBlasio deserved to win. He deserves to win in November. And hopefully once again using machines that actually count the votes instead of cooking them gave him that opportunity.

Ludicrous.
Polls off by that much would have caused a riot. It has to be somewhat close to do what you say.
