Silly numbers from New York's primary election [View all]

I posted this in the Bernie Sanders group earlier and I thought this group might also find it interesting.

"If you look at my previous post I explained how the numbers for Kings and Bronx counties looked too perfect, well crunching the numbers some of them appear way too similar.

The numbers for Kings are 174 236 - 116 327 so 59.96% - 40.04% a 19.929% difference
A perfect 60% - 40% is 174 338 - 116 225 a 102 vote difference 0.035% of the total

The numbers for Bronx are 95 772 - 41 114 so 69.96% - 30.04% a 39.929% difference
A perfect 70% - 30% is 95 820 - 41 066 a 48 vote difference 0.035% of the total

The increase in votes for Hillary in Kings is also almost a third extra (32,9995%).

The increase in votes for Kings from 2008 is 9.9963% or 26 406 votes a perfect 10% increase would be 26415.7 a 9.7 vote difference or 0.0367% of the total increase. (At least based on the results still up at the NYT)

In 2008 Hillary and Obama combined got 1963 votes more than Hillary and Bernie combined a 0.108% decrease in 2016. If you also count the votes for Edwards and others in 2008 you actually see a greater 2.4% decrease of in 2016.

Kings is the biggest county in terms of votes and saw the biggest increase, Bronx actually saw a 1.2% decrease and Queens a 0.94% increase.

Another interesting number is 126.000 the number of purged voters in Kings (Brooklyn) is almost the same as the number of people who voted for Obama in 2008 (126 885). If all these people were unable to vote then it makes no sense that Kings experienced such an increase compared to 2008 when none of the other big counties did and the state as a whole had a lower turn out. Could it have been made to look like the purge really hadn't affected the turn out.

Is it just me or is there too many numbers that don't make sense."
