16. The first weights were "out"? What do you mean by that? They were wrong?
Edited on Mon May-02-05 09:47 AM by TruthIsAll
"The fact that they reweighted the data later tells us nothing about why the first weights were out. All we know is that they were".

No, we don't know that they were "out". Only you seem to feel that way. The first weights were essentially correct. The FINAL weights were out.

You say the first weights were "out". But which ones? The time-line of respondents: 4pm: 8349, 7:33pm: 11027, 12:22am 13047? Were they also "out" for the confirming state exit polls as of 12:22am?

What about the FINAL at 1:25pm?
We know the 43%/37% was "out? I proved it.

Why do you say the early weights were "out"?
What is the basis for that statement?

Is that just a corollary of your careless wording of "the exit polls were wrong" even if that's not what you really meant to say?
