116. I am really glad you brought this up again...
It stuck in my head the last time you said it but to have questioned it would have diverted the discussion.

The issue is "the final Bush/Gore proportions diverge from what is possible in exactly the way that one would expect - that people like to report have previously voting for the person they are currently voting for. I think it is known as the "consistency bias"."

I've never heard of that. Could you educate me please...

Also, what is "consistency bias" in this context? I've heard of it in econometrics (where it refers to something completely different) but not in polling. References please?
