precincts, but this doesn't take into account Shrub voters in Dem precincts who might have been especially embarrassed to admit what they did.

But there's something else:

1. There was no machine-specific correlation of the discrepancies.

2. Therefore we assume that the hack had to be done on the central tabulators. Not hard to imagine.

3. But the discrepancies, according to Mitofsky, were due to Within-Precinct Error (WPE).

Now, how do we explain discrepancies that do not correlate with machine type, that occurred due to errors on central tabulators, and yet have been shown to be within-precinct?

How would the within-precinct totals be affected by the tabulators? Shouldn't it be the other way around? If Mitofsky saw discrepancies in actual precinct totals vs. exit polls, this is before the tabulation process and should correlate with machine type. But they don't.

So were all machine types more or less equally hacked, or could the exit polls be wrong?
