6. Good find. Positive proof "adjustments" made later are wrong.
Edited on Tue Dec-07-04 11:31 PM by skids
Now that I know that early voting was included in the exit polls,
I can say with confidence that the "adjusted" exit polls on CNN's
site are completely impossible. Why?

Because (repeat after me)

121,333,814 * 0.43 > 50456000

(And the numbers get even more wrong when you take away all the dead Bush2000 voters.)

So the next time Mitofski says "those numbers shouldn't be used, you should use the final numbers" tell him to put that in his crack pipe and smoke it.
