Florida: Further confirmation of a Kerry landslide

TruthIsAll http://www.geocities.com/electionmodel/FloridaConfirmat...


In every election, millions of votes are never counted They represent a significant component of the exit poll discrepancies. According to the 2000 Census, 110.8m votes were cast but only 105.6m recorded, leaving 5.2m uncounted. Most were from heavily Democratic minority districts. Assuming that 75% were Gore votes, his true margin was close to 3 million, not the 540,000 recorded. But that doesnt include likely vote-switching to Bush on DREs and optical scanners. And dont forget the millions of disenfranchised Democrats who never even got to the voting booth. Gores 540,000 official vote margin is a long-running media myth. The 2000 election wasnt even close, although the media would like us to believe it was. Only the 5-4 Supreme Court decision was close.

Consider the Florida 2000 fiasco Bush won by 537 official votes before the Supreme Court aborted the recount and 175,010 spoiled (under-punched and over-punched) ballots were never counted. Since approximately 75% were intended for Gore, he probably won Florida by more than 80,000 votes. And dont forget the thousands of Butterfly ballots which fooled Gore voters into voting for Buchanan.
  • Approximately 54% of the spoiled ballots were in black districts, where Gore won 91% of the vote.
    Assuming the other 46% were evenly split between Gore and Bush, then 126,000 (72%) of the spoiled ballots were Gore votes
    .
  • And the infamous Butterfly ballot caused several thousand Gore voters to mistakenly vote for Buchanan in Palm Beach County. Buchanan's vote share was 0.80% in Palm Beach and just 0.25% elsewhere.
Dan Rather's expos on voting machines in Florida 2000 showed that poor-quality paper used in punch card machines was a major cause of ballot spoilage in highly Democratic precincts. Faulty paper had never before been considered a factor in mechanical voting failure. The spoiled punched cards in Florida were just the tip of the national iceberg.

Kerry had an approximate 100,000 built-in vote advantage in Florida.
  • He could count on a solid majority (7080%) of 90,000 returning Nader voters.
  • No more hanging chads from spoiled punch cards; only DRE Touch screens (TS) and Optical scanners (OS) would be used for input to the central tabulators.
  • Furthermore, the Democrats had a remarkable GOTV and new registration effort.
    Of course, they had to overcome Bushs popularity; he had a whopping 48.5% approval rating on Election Day.

The Florida pre-election polls (Image) were trending to Kerry. After allocating the undecided vote, Kerry led the final 10-poll average by 51.148.8%. Kerry was on track to a 200,000 vote win.

But Bush won the official vote by 5247%, a 368,000 vote margin. How did Bush do it?

  • Could it have been that he won Independent voters?
    No, according to the Composite Florida exit poll, they voted 60-38% for Kerry.

  • Could it have been late Undecided voters who made up their minds in the month prior to the election?
    No, they also voted 61% for Kerry.

  • Could it have been New voters?
    No, Kerry won first-timers by 58-41%. The Democratic GOTV effort overwhelmed the Republicans.

  • Could it have been that voters favored an AWOL War President over a Medal of Honor winner?
    No, his approval rating was 48% on Election Day.

  • Could it have been the 90,000 returning Nader 2000 voters?
    No, Kerry won Nader voters by 64-17%, giving him an initial 40,000 vote advantage.

  • Could it have been the voting machines?
    Do you believe in magic?
    HAVA seat.
    Lets crunch some numbers.


Science works by assuming that the explanation that best fits the data is correct. But new data must always be tested to either strengthen the case or cause it to be rejected in favor of a better explanation.

Consider Floridas implausible vote count by machine-type and party registration The Democrats had a 4137% registration advantage in Touch Screen (TS) counties and a 4537% edge in Optical Scan (OS) counties. Bushs vote share was 125% of his registration share in TS counties and 146% in Optiscan counties. For Kerry, the corresponding percentages were 130% and 1%. Was the vote suppressed in TS (Democratic) counties and padded in Optiscan (Republican) counties? Since Bush was first selected in 2000, the Florida Republican vote sharetoregistration share ratio has increased sharply compared to the Democrats.

  • In 1996, there were 6% more Dole voters in Florida than registered Republicans.
    The Clinton vote share was equal to the registered Democratic share.

    In 2000, there were 28% more Bush voters than registered Republicans.
    The Gore vote share was 9% greater than the registered Democratic share.

    In 2004, there were 41% more Bush voters than registered Republicans.
    The Kerry vote share was 10% greater than the registered Democratic share.

Kerry won TS counties (3.86mm votes) by 5147%, and Bush won the OS counties (3.43mm votes) by a whopping 5742%. Kerrys low vote shares in the three most heavily populated Democratic TS counties (Palm Beach, Broward, Dade) are highly suspect. The TS county vote share matched the 12:22am NEP to within 0.5%, but the OS county share deviated by 9.0% in favor of Bush (307,000 votes). Assuming a 1.0% margin of error, the probability was virtually zero that Kerry's TS vote share would exceed his state-wide Florida share by 4.2%.

The unadjusted, "pristine" Florida exit poll had Kerry leading by 51.048.2%. The Florida General Exit Poll indicated that the election was a virtual tie (see the Gender demographic). Final State and National Exit poll category weights and/or vote shares are forced to match the recorded vote count. Its standard operating procedure.

But a closer analysis shows significant Bush bias in the exit poll weights and vote shares. A combination of county registration data, the pre-election polling trend, Bushs approval and exit poll demographic indicated that Kerry won the state by close to 200,000 votes.

Florida Exit Poll vs. Actual Recorded Vote

Recorded Vote (in thousands)
2004 Total Kerry Bush Other 2000 Total Gore Bush Other
Count 7582 3584 3965 33 Count 5939 2912 2912 115
Share 100% 47.3% 52.3% 0.4% Share 100% 49.0% 49.0% 1.9%



Edison-Mitofsky Exit Poll
Method Kerry Bush
IM WPE 50.9% 48.3% Unadjusted average WPE (difference in margin between exit poll and recorded vote)
GEO 49.2 50.3 Adjusted for incoming recorded votes
Composite 49.3 50.1 Adjusted for incoming recorded votes and pre-election polls (12:40am)
Best SPM 48.6 51.1% Forced to match the final recorded vote count

  • IM WPE
    The statewide WPE (Within Precinct Error) is the average of each precincts WPE. Extreme precincts have not been removed.
    This is the WPE value on the Input Management screen. Florida precincts had an average WPE of 7.8%.

    Applying the WPE adjustment to the recorded vote shares, the calculated shares are:

    Kerry = Final Recorded + .5* WPE = 47.1 + 3.9 = 51.0%
    Bush = Final Recorded .5* WPE = 52.1 - 3.9 = 48.2%
  • Best GEO Survey Estimate
    This is the estimate with the lowest Standard Error on the Difference (SEDF) using the cumulative precinct tallies for each candidate.


  • Prior Estimate
    Prior Estimates are based upon pre-election surveys conducted in each state. The Prior Estimate is used in combination with the Best Survey Estimate during election day to create a Composite Estimate


  • Composite Estimate
    The Composite is the weighted average of the Prior Estimate and Best Survey Estimate. The Composite is most often the estimate used in the survey weighting process to create the exit poll analysis data on Election Day before the actual vote is reported.


  • Best SPM
    Final adjusted estimates computed using actual vote returns for each sampled precinct.

The Florida Composite Exit Poll raised these red flags:

  1. PARTY-ID weights: Dem 38% / Rep 39%
    The actual Florida 2004 Voter Registration shares were Dem 42.0 / Rep 38.4%


  2. Bush led VOTERS WHO DECIDED 30+ DAYS before the election by 5446%.
    But late September Pre-Election polls (Image) indicated the race was tied.
    And Kerry led voters who decided in the final month by 6138%.


  3. BUSH APPROVAL weight: 53% (strong approval 35%)
    But his average approval was 48.5% based on 11 national polls.


  4. URBAN VOTE share: The Florida exit poll indicated Bush led by 5346%.
    But the 7:33pm National Exit Poll update indicated Kerry led 5741% (Table 4).

The Composite exit poll was contradicted:

  1. The Pre-Election 10-poll moving average projected Kerry by 51.148.8%.
  2. The Unadjusted Exit Poll (WPE method) had Kerry winning by 51.048.2%.

    These models confirmed the Pre-Election and Unadjusted-Exit Polls:

    1. Election Calculator
      Kerry won by 51.4 48.0% a 260,000 vote margin.

    2. Voting method/ Party ID weights
      Kerry won by 50.7 48.1% a 197,000 vote margin.

    3. Uncounted and switched votes Adjustments made to the final 2004 recorded vote.
      Kerry won by 51.3 48.2% a 240,000 vote margin.

1. This should've been Terry McAuliffe's priority for the DNC after 2000's blatant theft.

Anyone?

BTW.....Thanks to TIA and tiptoe.
