10. ALLEGEDLY?
Edited on Sun May-01-05 07:58 PM by TruthIsAll
"However, it is true that the "differential response" hypothesis predicts that response rates should actually be lower in Bush strongholds than in Kerry strongholds - because allegedly, Bush voters don't like responding".

THAT SINGLE WORD ALLEGEDLY REFUTES THE WHOLE RBR ARGUMENT.

What is the hypothesis?
That Bush voters don't like responding?
And this accounted for the "differential response"?

Has "differential response" ever been used as an hypothesis in exit polling? Was it used in the Ukraine?

How come, Febble, the Null Hypothesis was not stated as:
This was a clean, fraud-free election.

Isn't that a superior basis for doing real "scientific" analysis?
