Michigan Primary: Sanders did better than his recorded vote indicates
Richard Charnin (with John Brakey)
Updated: March 13, 2016
This analysis indicates that Sanders did much better than his recorded vote in the Michigan primary. Sanders had 590,386 votes (49.8%) and Clinton 570,948 (48.3%). Sanders won in 73 of 83 MI counties with 56% of the vote. He won the preliminary exit poll by 52.1-45.9%, a 97% win probability. Clinton won urban counties Wayne and Oakland with approximately 55% of the vote.
Clinton won the Massachusetts primary by just 1.4%, but she did well in urban areas. Sanders won hand-counted precincts by 57-40% in 68 Towns (32,360 votes, 2.7% of votes cast). Sanders also had 52.1% in the preliminary exit poll which he won by 52.1-45.7%. His win probability was also 97%.
Once again, we have multiple confirmation indicating fraud: Cumulative vote shares, preliminary exit poll, absentee vote anomalies and other anecdotal information.
Will we see the same fraud indicators in FL, OH, IL, MO and NC on March 15?
It should be conventional wisdom by now: in state elections, fraud abounds in heavily populated urban and suburban locations. Of course, the media never talks about it. They report the recorded numbers as if there was not a fraud factor.
Election Fraud Indicators
Sanders had 1) 56% at the 600,000 Cumulative vote share mark, 2) 54% of approximately 500,000 votes cast on AccuVote and Sequoia voting machines and 3) led 52.1-45.9% in the unadjusted exit poll.
Clinton had 1) 75% of approximately 240,000 absentee votes and 2) 51.2% of approximately 700,000 votes cast on ES&S Mod 100 machines. The percentages are highly suspect.
Voting Machines (optical scanners)
Sanders’ county vote shares were negatively correlated to machine types. The ES&S Model 100 was a highly negative -0.68. The bigger the county the lower Sanders’ vote share.
Wayne and Oakland counties used ES&S Model 100 optical scanners. Macomb used both ES&S and Premier/Diebold/Dominion AccuVote optical scanners.

Unadjusted MI Exit Poll
But the recorded share was IMPOSSIBLE. The proof is self-explanatory: How could Clinton gain 80 and Sanders just 10 of the final 91 exit poll respondents?
Based on the two-party preliminary share (53.16-46.84%) and 3.27% margin of error, Sanders had a 97.1% win probability.
Preliminary Exit Poll – 1510 respondents (3.27% MoE)
Adjusted Final Exit Poll – 1601 respondents (forced to match the recorded vote)
Absentee Votes (AV) differed substantially from the overall county vote results. Generally absentee voting is a close match to the precincts.
The Democrats had an estimated 237,000 AV. Approximately 177,750 (76%) voted for Clinton and 59,250 for Sanders. How did Clinton win AV by 76-24%? One would expect that Sanders and Clinton would nearly split AV.
Some have suggested that the reason Clinton won absentees by 50% is that they are typically older voters who supported Hillary. But Clinton won 60% of 45+ voters in the adjusted final exit poll. Since all exit polls are forced to match the recorded vote (see AAPOR ), Clinton probably had less than 60%. So much for the age issue.
This Sensitivity Analysis shows the effect of Clinton’s share of absentees from her estimated 177,750 recorded absentee votes to Sanders 59,250.
Absentee votes in the largest counties
In the CVS analysis, Sanders had approximately 56% at the 600,000 mark. Notice the abrupt change to straight lines at the 600,000 vote mark. They represent the largest counties (Wayne and Oakland which used ES&S optical scanners exclusively.
