171. An observation from a very biased poster on this thread..
Edited on Wed Aug-24-05 08:58 AM by TruthIsAll
Posters on this thread apparently fall into one of two groups:

1) Fraud conspiracists
2) Naysayers

Group I: 12 individuals
DU members who have worked diligently since Nov. 2, using publicly available but media-ignored data related to Election 2004. Each member has analyzed the data using his/her particular area of expertise.

Group II: 2 individuals
Both worked at USCV and left early last year, immediately proceeding to bash the statistical-based study they helped write which debunked the rBr hypothesis. At least one individual immediately engaged in a "consulting" assignment for Mitofsky, the originator of rBr. Both are currently collaborating with a well-known fundie, banned from DU, who throws stones at any argument pertaining to fraud. Each of them often refers to MP as an polling expert, although his "expertise" appears to derive from his claim of being an unbiased Democrat. Each has apparently deserted the discredited rBr hypothesis and cite as the basis of their case an NES study in order to promote a new theory to explain the exit poll discrepancies - the Forgetful Gore Responder (fGr). To justify the numbers, they have made assumptions regarding Gore/Bush 2000 voter percentages in 2004. The percentage deviations from the Final Exit Poll percentages are nearly triple the margin of error for this voting characteristic, considering that it is a 10/90% split.

Both groups are obviously biased.
