179. Take another look

The total change was +57 new voters that came in.

The net change to Kerry was a loss of votes. It's impossible to go negative as you add more voting results.

The AP reworked their data to have it better fit the expected results. Whether they completely fudged it, or re-sampled the data and threw out some results at this point is unclear. CNN has stated that they "oversampled" the black vote and redid their data.

We cannot trust the current exit polls in light of this information. We need to obtain the original data.
