To believe Bush won, you must believe this.

1)According to the Final National Exit Poll:

We know that 43% of 2004 Voters claimed to be Bush 2000 voters and just 37% claimed to be Gore voters. Since 43% is an impossible figure (it would mean Bush got 52.57 mm votes in 2000, when he only got 50.456mm), we are asked to believe this:

Gore 2000 voters forgot who they voted for or lied when they said they voted for Bush.

Since the ratio is 43% Bush/37% Gore =1.162, then for every 100 Gore voters, there were 16 who lied or forgot that they voted for Gore.

2) Reluctant Bush Responder (rBr):

There were 57.75 Kerry voters for every 50 Bush voters who spoke to the exit pollsters.

The ratio is 57.75/50= 1.155

To put it another way, 16 Bush voters out of every 116 decided to avoid the exit pollsters, compared to 116 Kerry voters who spoke to them.

What are we to conclude from these two theories?

Simply this:
That Kerry voters were more anxious to talk to exit pollsters then were Bush voters and when they did, they lied or forgot that they voted for Gore in 2000.
