63. You quoting MP? He adds a 60% cluster effect.
Edited on Wed Aug-17-05 08:34 PM by TruthIsAll
MP just makes the MoE as big as necessary so that he can say that it was not exceeded by Bush. His analytical shortcomings were exposed a long time ago.

Everyone knows exit polls are more accurate than pre-election telephone polls.And pre-election polls always use that same formula: MoE= 1/sqrt(n).

You give FL a +/-3.8% MoE for almost 3000 respondents?
You never stop smoking, do you?

Argue with Mitofsky:
Notice the MoE for 11,500 respondents.
Then estimate the MoE for 13047 respondents.

Foo, you are a great source of misinformation.
