52. I voted for my Labour Party candidate
and for the party that had the most anti-war MPs (my own candidate voted against the war). It happened to be Tony Blair's party. As a Labour Party member I'm doing what I can to get rid of him. We do not vote for prime ministers in the UK, we vote for parties. If the Labour Party gets rid of Tony Blair as leader we will have a new prime minister. It's a struggle, but we are working on it.

The raw data is released at precinct level. It's released at voter level. Take a look. Demographics, everything. Even precinct numbers, so you know which voters belong together. The only thing missing is the actual precinct ID, so you can't match the responses to the precinct vote totals. But you can match the whole thing to the state totals.

Not sure what you mean about "those not meant to be seen". If you mean the screenshots, similar data is in the E-M report, making it clear that there was a discrepancy between the projections and the count.

But no, I will not write to the NY Times demanding "a release and a donor". I have given you reasons why I do not support release of un-blurred data. And I am not in a position to do the budgeting you suggest for preparation of a blurred data-set (I don't even know what a dollar is worth). Ohio was the important one, and that's been done.

But why don't you write yourself?
