44. two questions
I have two questions. First for TIA. Unfortunately your great great analysis isn't really easy to discuss with everyone but I was wondering if you had be attempting to contact anyone to get this info out. Like Brad at Bradblog. Or even Jimmy Carter. It just seems like someone would love to run with this info.

Second question which maybe we all could research. How do they handle exit polls in other countries? Did our exit polling system differ from other countries? What I mean is that if you assume there is a possibility for fraud (and there is always a possibility) and then you have the polling company tell you they had to 'adjust' the polls to make it right. That info in other countries that would send up red flags. It's nice that we give our system the benefit of the doubt but imagine you are reading this same info coming from an election in Russia. Would the general public be so willing to accept the info? Did the Ukrainians use an adjusted exit poll to contest their election? The U.S. uses exit polls all the time as watchdogs. Are we using them the same way?
