4. PBS on Karl Rove
Edited on Thu Apr-14-05 09:43 AM by kansasblue
briefly mentioned the exit polls showing a Kerry win. They never directly explained it but they made it seem as if the exit polls didn't / couldn't reflect the surge in Bush's base. From your research is there anything to indicate that the exit polls wouldn't see that? I guess it might work that the exit pool establish which way the base (in percentage) is voting but the exit poll is unable to know that numbers are coming to the poll. So they calculate (for example) of 70% / 30 % going for Bush and normal turnout is X million. But the X million is what changed and the exit poll doesn't track that. Or is the exit poll itself very complete and would/could/should see Bush 'turning out the base'?
