Which is true?

1) The Reluctant Bush Responder theory
2) The Final National Exit Poll, which states that respondents who voted for Bush outnumbered those who voted for Gore by 43-37%.

If (1) is true, then the 43-37% Bush margin which matches the recorded vote must be wrong.
And the Preliminary National Exit poll of 13,047 was right after all.
Which means that Kerry won by 51-48%.

If (2) is true, the Reluctant Bush Responder theory is false.
So election fraud is the only possible explanation for the exit poll discrepancies.
Which means that the Preliminary National Exit Poll was correct.
Which means that Kerry won.

The two choices are obviously in conflict.
Both statements cannot be true.
If one is true, the other must be false.
But BOTH must be true if you believe Bush won.
Logically, we must conclude that both explanations are FALSE.
Which means that Kerry won.

To use the Chess analogy:
Regardless of whether you believe (1) or (2), you are in Check.
And I'm not a chess-player.
