92. I think you misunderstand my point
I am not asking you to prove the case before seeing the data. I am asking you to explain how the raw data (as opposed to the data already released for all states, or the blurred Ohio data that ESI analyzed) could conceivably be used to prove the case -- or even to advance the investigation. If no one can actually answer this question, then I see no grounds for releasing the data. Or, to put it differently, the only grounds would be the abstract (and controversial) premise that the data are inherently public.

If someone _can_ answer this question, then let's discuss it. But why are we so hung up on the inherently inconclusive exit poll data, when what we really need is verifiable ballots? I don't get it.
