91. I didn't say they were more accurate
I said sampling was more likely to be random. Or at least that non-random sampling would be less likely to occur at voter selection level.

Anyway, why is not the point. The point is that the 1250 precincts in the subsample had a higher alpha.

They could have had more fraud.

But it doesn't mean the 56:50 is wrong for the full sample.

And I'm not even arguing against fraud at this point TIA. I am simply arguing that to be consistent with the data, it is worth looking at the Kerry end.
