Advertisements [?]

EXIT POLL RESPONSE OPTIMIZER	
7/9/05 5:26 AM

Given the data: 						
1- Bush 2-party vote (51.24%)						
2- Exit poll response by Partisanship category			
3- "Within Precinct Error" (WPE) by partisanship
category

Determine the following:						
1- Exit poll results - aggregate and by partisanship category	
2- K/B (alpha) - aggregate and by partisanship category 		
3- Required Bush percentage of refusers
4. Probability of deviation from exit poll to vote

KEY RESULTS:
1. Kerry won 52.15% of the 2-party vote, 3.39% higher than his
recorded 48.76%,
2. Kerry won 51.63% of the total vote, 3.35% higher than his
recorded 48.28%.
3. Kerry won 63.127mm votes, 4.10 more (6.50%) than his
recorded vote.
4. Bush won 57.929 mm votes, 4.10 less (7.08%) than his
recorded vote.
5. Of the 4.10mm vote shift, 3.45 were in competitive and
moderate Bush precincts.

6. Minimum aggregate alpha (k/b) is 1.155. The 1.12 stated at
AAPOR is NOT feasible.
7. Alpha is 1.062 in Kerry strongholds, compared to 1.214 in
other categories.
8. Alpha steadily increases from High Kerry (1.0)  to High
Bush (1.50) categories, indicating a positive correlation
between vote discrepancy and Bush partisanship.

9.Bush needed 55.13% of refusers for his recorded 51.24%
2-party vote, compared to 47.85% of responders.
						
10. The probability of a 3.39% discrepancy between the exit
poll and vote is 1 in 63 billion.
