8. What are we left with ................ Lots of speculation
Edited on Tue Feb-22-05 10:16 AM by Aussie_expat
1."The 2000 exit poll was very close to the actual. There was no need to massage the exit poll data more than 1% to match the actuals. Bush only needed to stop the recount in FL."

Am I to believe that Bush was to know in the afternoon of election day that he only needed to stop the recount?

2."Because Clinton won handily in 1996, despite the exit poll deviation from the actual. There was no need to massage the exit poll data. They could not steal it."

This does not address the exit poll deviation. Why did they massage the data anyway then TIA? and shouldn't this type of "pristine" data that should be used to compare with the 2004 "pristine" data that you use in you calculations?

3."There are more Democrats than Republicans."

What are the percentages?

4."Do you believe the 37/37/36 PartyID weights in the CNN poll?"

Seems hard to believe based on past exit poll data.

5."Do you believe the Republicans registered more voters tan Dems in 2004?" We know the opposite took place.

How many new Dem's registered to vote in 2004? How many new Republicans?

If the opposite took place then what was the spilt?
