276. I wouldn't call it idiocy, but in general, I agree with you
I think we all want a nice simple way to prove that Shrub stole this election and this is one way, while ignoring a number of other facts, to do so.

Some of us see those smoking guns and others try to debunk them. There are hundreds of atta-boys for the smoking gun enthusiasts while the debunkers go mostly unanswered. Fortunately this isn't a popularity contest.

The fact is that the election _could_ have been stolen because the vote is unverifiable. That's a fact and that's bad enough.

We know that Florida is a failed state and Ohio is acting like one. There are 48 others that could go the same way if we don't start getting laws in place to make the vote verifiable again. That's the problem and no amount of exit polling is going to fix it.

That said, it begs the question of why no one DOES conduct exit polls here to detect fraud, as was done in Ukraine. If Mitofsky says his polls cannot be used for this purpose, then can his raw data be used to do so, and do we in fact have it yet? He wants $10,000 for all 50 states, but is that the raw data or what is it?

There may be enough in these polls to find some proof of fraud, but without knowing more of the facts about them, we should probably direct more of our efforts elsewhere.

And that said, I've got to go read Dr. Freeman's latest analysis because I just can't get enough of this stuff! :)
