    he "won" 63-34. Of course, the ballot counting process is completely centralized in the Revolutionary Guard, so it could easily be fraudulent.

      The U.S. media and Americans across-the-board just imposed a lot of American wishful thinking on that election.  The dude we hate easily might've won legit anyway, with or without fraud.

      •  I'm not asserting that the election was falsified. (0+ / 0-)

        But it's astronomically more likely when the elections process is centrally housed in a ideological institution with a vested interest in keeping its authority.

    •  It seems like Nate Silver... (0+ / 0-)

      Crunched the numbers and concluded that the election was probably way closer than was officially reported.
