13. Very weak response. Another strawman, my philosopher friend.
Edited on Sat Mar-12-05 11:17 PM by TruthIsAll
We are talking about the exit polls and the recorded vote count, aren't we? Don't try to squirm away.

The question you fail to answer is this:
Is matching the "final" exit poll to the vote count, by adjusting the weightings of the "preliminary exit poll", legitimate? After all, it is a given that spoilage occurs - and that it hurts the democrats far more than the repubs...

Why match the exit poll to the final, inaccurate recorded vote? Isn't that just propagating a lie? EXCLUSIVE OF FRAUD, the true intended vote is somewhere between the preliminary exit poll and the recorded vote.

So as I have said, Nederland, you are halfway there.

Preliminary exit poll <= X > Recorded vote.
X, the Intended Kerry vote, may still become equal to the Preliminary exit poll percentage when fraud is accounted for.

But we already know for sure that X is NOT equal to the Recorded vote.

Do you have another philosophical, hypothetical argument to counter this logic with?

Or will you next claim that 1 + 1 = 3?
