48. No, papau, they changed the preliminary exit poll to match the vote.
Why did they do this, knowing that at least one demographic was demonstrably false?

1-Why not leave well-enough alone and just say that the 13047 exit poll, which Kerry won by 51-48 with a 1.0% MOE, did not agree with the recorded vote?

2-Why not just say that there was no statistical explanation for it?

3-Why propose the Reluctant Bush Responder theory, while at the same time expecting us to believe the complete opposite (and impossible)43% Bush/37% Gore spread of those repondents who voted in the 2000 election?

4-Why raise the virtually impossible 41% Bush 2000 voter weight
to the absolutely impossible 43%?

The smell of rotting fish overwhelms the senses.
