Actually with the test ballots removed, nothing changed, the percentages ended exactly the same with the test ballots and without them. The change in Adam's lead after the first round was a result of the ballots from the eliminated candidates being redistributed based on the ranked choices of the ballot. This is exactly how the system works.

I think Adams was sort of sending diffrent signals to different audiences..a common failing among politicans.

I don't think an ex-cop ever told or implied to any audience that he was going to close jails and eliminate the police.

Politicans have been doing it since Democracy was born in Ancient Athens. I don't expect them to quit.
