7. OK. I'll bite.
There is no way to refute the numbers. There is no way that the sampling errors could be random.

Either there was fraud and/or there really is a Reluctant Bush Responder phenomenon. My guess is that both are true, at least in states like Ohio, where the weather was atrocious and there was a 100ft. limit imposed on the NEP interviewers for at least part of the day.

The Cincinnati 4-M observers said that a lot of "repub types" ignored the NEP interviewer. I can easily imagine Republican businessmen ignoring what looks like a campaigner (hard to read the NEP badge after 4pm) who is standing with actual campaigners, in the pouring rain. I think the repub businessman would be focused on getting home to the nice dinner prepared by the little lady.
