49. I agree the changes stink - but making final changes is SOP for exit

So "changes" that produce exit polls closer to real vote is standard operating procedure.

But they should have just noted that the 13047 preliminary exit poll did not agree with the recorded vote?

Since they - for a reason I do not know but which I suspect has to do with GOP lawyers and media threats - could not reference the 40,000 events indicating massive fraud, they could not say anything other than the model was way wrong - Leading to the Reluctant Bush Responder theory - while as you note they do not describe or discuss all the other implied "facts" of the exit model that are at odds with logic (such as percent of Bush 2000 voters voting and the hispanic split (other hispanic exit polls showed no change from 2000 - but this official one has a huge increase in GOP Hispanics).

We agree -The smell of rotting fish overwhelms the senses.
