26. Still the song remains the same
Audits, exit polling, and election fraud, that's what I have been trying to discuss. The subjects can be related at times. And if I have to repeat and emphasis the facts until it is clear, I don't mind doing so if it will help anyone to understand.

The list for unaudited records in swing states:

I don't have a problem with associating SPC and exit polling. These are parametrical statistics.

More robust ways have been developed, of measuring the accuracy of votes, but part of the problem is lack of openness from the government in supplying the public records.

"In democracies with hand-counted paper ballots such as Germany and the United Kingdom, exit polls predict the outcome of national elections with extreme accuracy. Around the world, exit polls have been used to verify the integrity of elections, and discrepancies between exit polls and the official vote count have been used to successfully overturn election results in Peru, Serbia, Georgia, and Ukraine. At the same time that Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie was saying, "I would encourage the media to abandon exit surveys on Election Day, the administration was paying for exit polls in the Ukraine to help ensure that any fraud committed would be exposed."

"If you are going to steal an election you go after votes most vigorously where they are most needed. In this case, the 11 swing states where the election was close. As it turns out, even though there is no reason why exit polls should be more or less accurate in key states, the discrepancy is significantly higher in the swing states than other states and significantly higher yet in the three critical battleground states of Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania."

In the 2000 election in Yugoslavia, Milosevic claimed that he had defeated Vojislav Kostunica. However, exit polling cast great doubt as to the accuracy of the reported count, suggesting that the vote count had been corrupted. Public and media pressure eventually forced him to concede, turning a stolen election into an honest election result.

I repeat for clarity --- exit polls were not consistent with the official recorded vote. A significant difference between exit polling data and the official recorded vote tally was PRIMA FASCIA evidence of election fraud and was sufficient evidence to INVALIDATE THE ENTIRE ELECTION and cause the entire country to recast their ballots.

Sure, verifying votes thru exit polling in this election is just one part of the solution. We also must not lose track of the other ways the Repugs will attempt to disenfranchise the American people from voting.

"In what may be the single most astounding fact from the election, one in every four Ohio citizens who registered to vote in 2004 showed up at the polls only to discover that they were not listed on the rolls, thanks to GOP efforts to stem the unprecedented flood of Democrats eager to cast ballots."
