36. Well...if you are referring to adjustments made to the preliminary
Edited on Sat Apr-02-05 09:42 AM by TruthIsAll
13047 poll, then I refer you to the "How Voted in 2000" demographic.

As I have demonstrated, the 43%/37% mix is physically impossible, since it is in conflict with 2000 vote and death rate statistics, so...draw your own conclusions.

Since the weights are verifiable (and completely bogus, not even close), what does this hint about the unverifiable "adjustments" made to the other preliminary exit poll demographic weightings?

Can you have confidence in any of them? In fact, since ALL matched to the vote, the answer is obvious.

The preliminary poll was closer to the truth - and Kerry won it.
The truth must be that Kerry did better than the preliminary poll (41%/39% 2000 voter mix), once factual stats (actual 2000 votes, death rate, turnout ) are used to determine a plausible mix.

My best estimate is 40% Gore/ 39% Bush - which makes it a Kerry blowout.
