57. one thing back on point 8
"...no, of course I don't agree, because we have no way of knowing the voteshares for Kerry and Bush among those who didn't vote in 2000 either."

Those would be the "DNV2K" voters, right?

So, if we can just assume that all his references to "weights" are sort of a bad dream best ignored, then we can more or less agree that we can estimate how many 2004 voters were Gore voters, Bush voters, "other" voters, or non-voters in 2000. Which takes us to step 9, where we move to the exit polls, and TIA's argument blows up.
