then do you think the 2004 pre-election polls were rigged?
They varied, but none of them gave Kerry a double-digit lead in MN. (They did often give Obama a double-digit lead there.)

It may seem inconceivable to you that your state could elect both Wellstone and Coleman, but that doesn't make it "completely inconsistent." (A lot of the rest of us are pretty quizzical about "The Body," or the 15% who just threw their votes to Barkley.)

As for Pawlenty and Klobuchar, she had a double-digit lead in the polls; he barely trailed. For all I know it's possible that some sort of fraud put him over the top, but it's far from a logical necessity.
