2. My math question is this. How can there be a RBR when
in Mitofsky's FINAL 13660 NEP, Bush 2000 voters comprised 43% and Gore voters only 37%?

Now we know the 43% is IMPOSSIBLE; at best it was 39.82%.

You have seen the numbers: 50.456/122.26 million =41.26%
And 1.75 million (3.5%) of those 2000 Bush voters died.

50.456-1.75 = 48.70 and 48.70/122.26 = 39.8%

So the question is moot.

Lizzie should address this issue first:

HOW DO YOU JUSTIFY A FINAL EXIT POLL WHICH
1) USES AN IMPOSSIBLE WEIGHTING WHICH
2) REPUDIATES THE RBR AND
3) MATCHES THE FINAL VOTE

LEMON = LEMON

THEY CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

IF THE RBR THEORY IS TRUE,
THEN THERE MUST HAVE BEEN MORE GORE VOTERS INTERVIEWED, NOT FEWER.

BUT IF THAT IS THE CASE, THEN THE WEIGHTS MUST BE CHANGED..
AND THAT WILL SHOW THAT KERRY WON THE ELECTION...

THEY ARE CAUGHT IN A TRAP FROM WHICH THERE IS NO LOGICAL EXIT.
