28. Say what?
The CPS is a poll just as the exit poll is a poll; how is it that because it was performed by the government make it better? Given how the Bush administration wants the census to go to estimatation rather than a full enumeration, makes your assertion ironic (after all it is the census that determines the pattern of proportional representation within the electoral college). As a civil servant, it strikes me as risible.

As to your second assertion, where is this subtraction indicated? What it suggests is that the reweighing changed the proportions of women going to Kerry downwards. It is not a subtraction problem, but multiplication--a minor point, but one not lost on accountants.

Are you stating that Kerry made inroads with republican women? What independent source do you have for that (other than the CPS)?
