64. georgia10 - Is it possible that the data TIA has just found has
been 'adjusted' since the date(s) of the polls you have been looking at that showed * had gotten 96% or so?

The reason I ask is that the only announced change to the exit poll results was by MSNBC in regards to the Latino vote -- they admitted that the results they gave on Nov 3, 4, 5... were wrong because they had weighted rural Latinos (who are more likely to vote for *) too heavily. They wound up reporting that * had less support than they had initially reported.

The article was in the Houston Chronicle "Latino Numbers Don't Add Up" and the URL used to be < >. It has been archived...

By the way, a few days ago Chorti wrote in a post that he was writing a paper that would show that the pre-election polls were very skewed toward * -- the possible implication being that even the early/uncontaminated election night poll results may have been skewed * for reasons relating to similar methodology.
