45. Differential response affects your analysis as well
Febble does not need to respond, I have already commented that if NEP is accurate in its characterization that it improperly or poorly trained their sample takers, and the bias they report exceeds the MOE, you cannot apply the MOE that was part of the original sampling design, but a larger one. When one puts that error term around your means, much of the problem falls away.

The problem that you do not seem to appreciate, is that she provides a correction term that may allow you to obtain what you seek. Why don't you analyze the LA Times Exit Poll, see if the same problems exist? It has been completely overlooked in this conspiracy laden popular vote was stolen argument of yours.
