173. MOE or Recounts
When one is considering pre-election polls with a MOE of plus or minus 3% and exit-polls with a +or- 4%, being right on is more of an accident than precision. Many of those pre-election polls varied considerably depending on the pollster. Zogby may have been rather close to the exit polls, but others weren't. I don't think there is conclusive proof in these MOE analyzes, even though they may raise some eyebrows. The proof lies in randomly done manual recounts
