11. This piece of affirmation right here.
"Pct Wtd Diff
Sum/Avg 122.17 72714 2.89% 48.12% 50.01% 48.82% 50.82% 0.80% "

As implied, the differential mean is truly telling because the actual percentage is near the exact same, as the original exit poll.

This kind of polling continuity can never be coincidence if you look at it carefully. A sampling adjustment like this would take possible computer tampering.

Whereas the vote totals themselves, are far more highly likely to exhibit this kind of difference. Because with all computers things are made to be exact. They can't be offset or character of normal error or human incompetence. Otherwise, the percentages would be far more diverse and widespread.
