Surprise!

Study shows Putin\’s election victory doesn\’t add up

Really, that just is such a surprise, isn\’t it?

  1. While I don’t disagree with their conclusions, their 1 in 10^70 is pure invention.

    Firstly, we don’t understand voting patterns well enough. They’ve made massive assumptions about the evenness of distribution in as odd a thing as voting patterns.

    Secondly, with the 107% turnout in that (Chechen?) precinct, we’ve got 0 (no, actually zero, not close to it) chance of the result being a statistical freak.
