16. Fine
But I was asked to account for the extra error in battleground states.

It seems to me there is some goalpost moving here.

Q: "How do you account for more error in battleground states?
A: "I don't think there was more error in battleground states."
Response: "But that means they just wanted to win the popular vote!"

Here's another one:

Q: "How come the bias was greatest in strongly Bush precincts?"
A: "It wasn't greatest in strongly Bush precincts"
Response: "That's because it was everywhere!"

I don't KNOW if there was fraud in that election. I think there probably was. It is a scandal that we don't know. It is why I have been supporting USCV's efforts to make future elections auditable.

But I think this particular paper by USCV makes unjustified inferences from the data, and my paper demonstrates why. Furthermore, I don't think Bruce's ingenious model (and he has been sharing his algorithms with me as I have been sharing mine with him) refutes my conclusions. He disagrees, as he is entitled to do. We are both numbers guys, like you, trying to figure out what went wrong.

Please read my analysis.
