31. Can we enlist Move-on
To put pressure on the news consortium. We should demand the following.

1. Release raw exit poll data early and often (starting at noon).
2. Do not adulterate exit poll data with numbers that average the data to the returns
3. Allow supervision (by lawyers/activists) of how and where the exit poll data are obtained and tabulated.

Move-on is the only organization big enough to put this kind of pressure on.

I believe 2006 will be a landslide for the dems in the exit polls (if we're allowed to see that data). I don't believe meaningful election reform will happen before 2006, which means there will be a huge disparity between returns and exit polls. We have to prove to the public that the elections are rigged (and the public has to be riproaring mad over it). We can do it if we can hold the media accountable for this valuable check on the integrity of the system.

What do you guys think????????????
