9. Well, I'm new to this board
and I never know where you've got to.

Dunno about 2000. The WPEs showed a lot less over an over-estimate of Gore's vote, although by my calcs it was still significant.

I will say this one last time. My paper does not say the evidence supports rBr (although I think it may). It says that USCV's refutation of rBr is not justified on the bases of their analyses. Other things may refute rBr but not that.

It would help if you read my paper to the end. Here is the end:

"Mathematically, the observed pattern could arise from widespread fraud as well as from widespread response bias; differential vote spoilage rates for Kerry votes or ballot stuffing of Bush votes would produce results indistinguishable from reluctant Bush responders. However, this is not the inference currently drawn from the data by USCV in their report. "
