32. Answers.....
Your threads are nearly impossible to post in because you take such a ridged stance trying to defend your spreadsheets relevant or not.

Now you are using these questions to divert the attention (strawman)from your now admittedly biased calculations.

You pick the result you want to achieve and then work the math that assures the closest outcome. Then you act like you have solved a big mystery. WOW.

Now I will address your strawmen:

"YOU HAVE NEVER ANSWERED MY DIRECT QUESTION:
HAVE YOU READ THEIR 5-PAGE PAPER WHICH DEBUNKS THE MITOFSKY RELUCTANT BUSH RESPONDER THEORY?"

Yes.

"DO YOU APPRECIATE THAT THE PAPER WAS PEER-REVIEWED BY MATHEMATICS/STATISTIC DEPT. HEADS FROM RENOWNED UNIVERSITIES WHO HAVE THEIR REPUTATIONS ON THE LINE FOR DEMOCRACY?"

Yes. Do they sancition your calculations?

"SO TELL US, WHAT WILL YOU BRING TO THE TABLE IN THIS EFFORT?"

Certainly not flawed calculations.

"I, for one, am not convinced that your level of mathematics is up to snuff."

Never said it was. I do know that if you start with flawed assumptions then your work is worthless.

"1) What are your thoughts on the appropriate MOE for each of the poll categories?"

I would like to learn more about the mechanics used during the exit polling process.

"2)Tell us about the Reluctant Bush responder theory."

It's a theory that states repubs were less likely to participate in the exit poll. Pretty simple concept.

"3)Tell us why 99%+ of voting machine anomalies all favored Bush."

I don't support electronic voting. However, 89 votes do not make or break an election.

"4) Then tell us your thoughts regarding ballot spoilage. What is your understanding of the average number of ballots which are never counted each election cycle?"

Many ballots are spoiled for a wide range of reasons.

"5) Then there's Florida 2000. What can you tell us about the 70,000 undervotes and the 110,000 overvotes? Any idea how many voters were disenfranchised? The Palm Beach butterfly ballot? What about those 16,022 lost Gore votes in Volusia? Do you know of the Diebold connection?"

Certainly valid issues.
