83. Two overlapping distributions?
I'm guessing there aren't sufficient numbers to really address this question, but is it possible that the data are consistent with two distributions, one centered around a roughly 3 percentage point difference from the exit polls, and the other centered around a zero point difference, each with a somewhat similar margin of error? If so, that might be consistent with a widespread "central" adjustment to the vote counts together with a smaller group of states that were left alone for a variety of reasons. I think one can easily come up with arguments why OR, CA, HI, TX, TN and the Dakotas should have been left alone, for instance.
