10. Do you think that would be a lot of trouble and risk just to pad the popular vote?
While it's likely Bushco would want to cut Kerry's popular vote, what evidence do you have that Kerry would have been less at risk with even the mythical HCPB the lever machines replaced, let alone the optical scan that would replace them?

Are you aware of the details of NY's transition from HCPB to lever machines?

What gives you the impression that the state would broadly institute hand counts?

Is it possible the exit poll is wrong?

Is it possible, in a Dem leaning state, that provisional ballots break disproportionally for the Dem candidate?

Can you explain what "stuck on Bush" means in detail?

Can you express in fractional or percentage terms, the nineteen machines (and the other EIRS reported failures) in relation to the total number of machines in the state?
