4. It is not a conspiracy theory

It is a critique of a bullshit trashing of exit polls, which are used in other countries to monitor elections, but not in this country.

It is not a conspiracy theory that our votes are counted by electronic machines that are easily manipulated for election fraud. All or almost all election experts agree on that. That is a fact, not a theory.

The only question is how often that actually happens. Exit polls can be used to monitor elections and give us an idea of how often that happens.

I responded to Nate Silver's 10 bullshit reasons why we should ignore exit polls. If you have any thoughts on why my responses are wrong, other than to call them "conspiracy theories" with no other discussion, then I'd love to hear them.
