OMG! Mitofsky invented reluctant Bush responder scam for Bush Sr. in '92!

<See the end of this first part for verification:>*
Part 1:

I posted the following thread:

"ALERT! reluctant Bush responder scam "invented" by Mitofsky in 2000!"

Actually, it turns out rBr was invented FOR THE FATHER! (George Herbert Walker Bush). <Thanks for catching this mods.>

So, it gets even MORE amazing! Voter's are not only prouder to vote for candidates BOTH to the right AND left of Bushs' running for president; but, apparently, THE TRAIT IS ALSO INHERITED!


Or, should we assume that if Jeb ever runs for President (or GW's daughters), voters who vote for them will be reluctant to admit who they voted for? <It seems we not only need statisticians on the job to figure all this out; but also geneticists?> ;)

So the pertinent information should read (corrections in italics):
"- Buchanan vs. Bush in the 1992 NH primaries: Scenario: Buchanan very close in the early exit polls (6 points), amazingly (and mysteriously), Bush pulls it out big (16 points), and Mitofsky explains (spins?) the early exit poll discrepancies:"

"July 18, 2000 NA (Network America) e-wire
What? Buchanan Bias? Whats that?

"Mitofskys best guess <hypothesis?> is that Buchanans voters were prouder of what they had done and, hence, more prone to respond, than Bushs were. <THE BIRTH OF rBr!> <Hmm... so voters BOTH to the left (Kerry) AND right (Buchanan) are prouder of voting for their candidate than for the Bushs'?>"
*<Verification here:>
"...early media reports stated that Bush and Buchanan were running neck and neck in the 1992 New Hampshire primary..."

<My original source:>
"...Six New Hampshire primaries back, Lyndon Johnson had edged out Eugene McCarthy..." <6x4=24, 1992-24=1968.>

Part 2:

<I discovered some MORE interesting patterns from the link I used to verify. (Note the similar pattern to current times. Mitofsky's "hand" (as the "the fixer") can clearly be seen.):>
"...early media reports stated that Bush and Buchanan were running neck and neck in the 1992 New Hampshire primary..."
"Time Magazine Reports NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN Get Their Exit Polls From Same Company!"
"...while the networks have attempted to convey the impression that they are in hot competition with each other to be first with those *incredible*--and we _do_ mean INCREDIBLE--election projections, they have in fact been receiving polling data from the same source--a company they jointly rely upon! <Except now, they no longer try to hide this fact.> "
"...another AP wire (on file) announced that with 98% of the vote counted by 11:20PM on Iowa Caucus night (Feb. 12, 1996), the counting was suddenly halted! <"Meltdowns, and vote-count-halts has been Mitofsky's typical "modus operandi".> (Bedtime curfew for the folks at VNS?)"
" Midnight, Sunday, Feb. 18--six full days after the Iowa Caucuses--VNS and the Republican Party of Iowa had still been apparently unable to count the remaining 2% of the precincts, and were refusing requests for a release of the final results.<Like Mitofsky won't release the necessary exit poll data now?> Incidentally, everyone in Iowa is still waiting for some of the results from Dubuque and Sioux City, two Buchanan strongholds."


I tell ya - the more I look into this, the more "dirty" it looks.
