At first count, some 77 per cent of the two million people who anonymously cast their ballot said that Pete and Alisha Arnold should not have the baby.
But Mr Arnold later claimed that 1.5million votes were fraudulent and that when these were taken out, 73 per cent were actually in favour of keeping the baby.
Either way, the vote was irrelevant as he has already admitted the whole thing was a hoax and that abortion was never on the agenda.
In statements on their blog birthornot.com, the Arnolds said they were 'astounded' by the number of fake votes but said it had been a good excuse to discuss the issues surrounding abortion.
They also still clung to their belief that it was a vital civil experiment that would make people feel more enfranchised at a time of declining trust in politics.
The Arnolds, both 30, from Minneapolis, started their blog four months into the pregnancy because they said they were unsure if they wanted to be parents.
