155. Melissa G, I think you are missing my question
I understand that you believe that the raw exit poll results would prove that Bush stole the election.

But I do not understand how you would use the raw exit poll results to prove this.

By the way, this isn't the same question as whether Bush stole the election (or, maybe more to the immediate point, stole the popular vote?). Assuming that he did, how could the raw exit poll results be used to prove this?

We know that the exit polls differ from the official returns. We know that some people think the discrepancy is due to fraud, while others think that it was due to bias (and many don't know what they think, or opt for some combination of fraud and bias, etc. etc.). Will access to the raw data resolve that debate, and if so, how? Or, in what other way will access to the raw data be important?

If I am misframing the question(s) because I miss your point, of course please answer the question(s) I should have asked instead.
