243. CNN Screens yield strange numbers
I ran some numbers from the pictures of the polls on the screens on election night (given in messages above- one early with 1,963 voters and one later with 2,020 voters), converting % to number of votes. Although the number of voters went up between the time the two polls were posted (57 more voters) the actual number of people who voted for Kerry WENT DOWN and Bush's increased MORE THAN 57. Is this possible? Don't pollsters continue to add to the data they have as the evening goes on? Or would they poll an entirely new group and give that data?
