11. I am still working on the drink...
Who you voted for in 2000 and who you voted for in 2004 are two seperate statistics. It is plausible that the unadjusted exit polls understated support for Bush while accurately reporting the breakdown of the voters by "who they voted for in 2000" or WTVFI2. In this scenario, since the WTVFI2 information was already correct, adjusting the exit poll to match the actual vote (and correct the understatement of Bush support) results in the creation of an error in the WTVFI2.

I'm not saying that is what happened (I really do not know) but it is plausible. Either way, what you posted is not PROOF.
