13. Total bull
"The reason the exits were off, Mitofsky said, is that interviewers assigned to talk to voters as they left the polls appeared to be slightly more inclined to seek out Kerry voters than Bush voters."

Professional pollsters use strategies to keep individual bias out. For one, many interviewers are used to minimize any one's bias, and for another, a method is employed to prevent the interviewer from only interviewing people they feel comfortable with. The interviewer follows a system for selecting respondents... and they're supervised.

The corrupt Republicans are twisting themselves into pretzels trying to avoid the consequences of all the lying and fraud that's accumulated.
