Today in attribution

How are those arithmetic lessons going, Los Angeles Times?

Who's won the most votes?
Clinton also leads Sanders in that category. She has received more than 12.5 million votes, compared with 9.4 million for Sanders. That's a lead of more than 3 million votes, according to calculations by the website Real Clear Politics.

If you believe the numbers, do the subtraction yourself. (And if you're relying on "calculation" by Real Clear Politics, stop.) If you don't believe the numbers, why use them?
