34. I won't respond to that Jesusland strawman.

I assume you are unaware that MOE applies to exit polls as well.

Most Pre-election polls of 1000 sample size have an MOE of about 3%

The reason why exit polls are more accurate than standard polls is due to two basic reasons:

1) Individuals are polled immediately after voting and KNOW exactly who they voted for. They don't lie. They are not undecided.

2) Exit polls typically sample over 2000 in bigger, hotly-contested states. For example, 2,846 were polled in FL in the initial polling (63% completed). More samples mean lower MOE's.

That's it. It ain't rocket science, although Mitofsky would like you to believe so.

Why won't he release the complete exit poll data?

Maybe for the same reason Bush won't release the full 9/11 report.

Maybe for the same reason nothing is neing done about the Plame indictments..

Maybe for the same reason nothing is being done about the Abu Grhaib violations of the Geneva Conventions..

Maybe for the same reason ....

Oh, forget it...
