307. New statistical analysis - 250 million to one!
U Penn professor Steven Freeman has analyzed the discrepancy between exit polls and vote counts for the battleground states. His analysis shows that the odds of the discrepancies occurring by chance for the three battleground states of Florida, Pennsylvania and Ohio is 250 million to 1. Given that, as he points out, exit polls are to be trusted and there are no objective data to suppose this election was any different, there is a strong, strong possibility that the vote count was off. How about that?

Reference: "The Unexplained Exit Poll Discrepancy", Steven F. Freeman, Ph.D. University of Pennsylvania, November 10, 2004. His e-mail is stfreema@sas.upenn.edu . The article is listed on Buzzflash, it's a pdf file.
