136. of course he can "have it both ways" -- think about it
Edited on Mon Aug-31-09 06:06 AM by OnTheOtherHand
There is no logical reason on earth why the polls have to be equally accurate or inaccurate every time.

In New York, your own figures show that there was little difference between 1992 (when you claim that the exit polls were Wrong) and 2000 (when you claim that they were Right). There's also little difference in New York between 1988 and 1992 (both of which you score as Wrong) -- but we know that on average nationwide, the exit poll error was much larger in 1992 than 1988. You're imposing your false binaries on the data.

Now, step away from the caps lock key before you hurt yourself, and see if you can come up with a reason for your blind faith in exit polls. No one is really buying this idea that Bushes have magic powers over the thousands of people who check the lever machine results, so maybe you can try for something better.
