New York's Democratic primary loser Sen. Bernie Sanders and the GOP's primary winner Donald Trump got a lopsided return for their money in television and radio advertising, new data shows.

According to a spending tally provided by the Center for Public Integrity, based on data from The Tracking Firm, Sanders shelled out about $9.03 a vote in his unsuccessful New York bid, while GOP victor Trump shelled just 13 cents per ballot.

Sanders spent more than $6.8 million on TV and radio ads, and won about 750,000 votes in the New York election — 42 percent — coming out to about $9.03 a vote, the Center for Public Integrity reports.

Clinton snagged more than 1 million votes and spent about $3.8 million on TV and radio ads, or about $3.62 per vote, the center reports.

Meanwhile, Trump didn't air any TV ads, and crushed his rivals, Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich, garnering more than 515,000 votes in the GOP contest in the Empire state — about 60 percent of the total.

The real estate billionaire forked over $67,000 in radio ads, however, the equivalent of about 13 cents per vote, the center reports.
