30. Response memory shift is indeed a problem - and a great fudge factor
Vote for winner desire would make more folks claim to have voted for Bush in 2000 than actually did.

But there is no way to measure.

TIA presumes truthtelling by the voter - and no one has a handle on theshift due to lying..

Indeed we measure the shift by assuming the "final" exit polls are correct, and then saying 3 million of Gore voters lied

But the problem with the 2004 exit polls is that there are too many such "lies" and they are too big relative to past exit polls and election results.

The election was stolen - but how to get the media to focus on this is beyond me. I look forward to the May release of the Freeman book.
