3. Weighting wrong? Bogus!
The "weighting" comes Before you choose who to poll, not AFTER you ask them who they voted for.

This is very simple... as of 12:21AM CNN had asked 1,963 people who they voted for... 1,022 said they voted for Kerry.

At 1:41AM CNN said only 991 of the now 2,020 people polled said they voted for Kerry.
