98. White House claims OH, FL exit polls skewed

We now know how they got unskewed. They had CNN and possibly others forge the exit poll results.



A source connected to the White House told the National Review this afternoon that President Bush is confident of winning both Ohio and Florida, which early exit polls put in the Bush column, RAW STORY can reveal.

In a telephone coversation, the reporter said, "political operations" was "very confident and completely dismissive of the early day numbers."

Believing an unverified claim on the conservative Drudge Report, that the early exit polls were skewed in favor of women voters (who prefer Kerry by-and-large), the White House source told the Review they believe there was "skewing" of early exit polls.

Confident that Bush would take both Ohio and Florida, the source went on to say that Mel Martinez, the Republican Senate candidate in Florida, will beat Democrat Betty Castor, who is leading in early exit polling. The source also apparently asserted that Bush would crush Kerry in West Virginia.

The source, they said, was "not someone who is given to bluster."
