102. Hi Kiwi..
Here's the reference (one of many) on Ohio precincts. It carries weight with me, particularly in light of the ongoing problems in Ohio (special election, 2nd District, 8/05 producing, as if by magic, Rep. Jean Schmidt, R).

With regard to tabulator concerns, my response was to febble's statement about exit polls, " But the exit poll evidence does NOT rule out (IMO):" Tabulator manipulation is one that you may have ruled out, which is fine with me, but is appropriate to the list febble generated.

Now here's my question to you, given:

a) the Dispatch poll versus the results just on issues 2-3;
b) the esteemed nature of the Dispatch poll and it's outstanding track record in 30+ Ohio races see first reference in my post above;
c) the placement of new Diebolds in 44 counties just before the election (and God knows how many precincts); and
d) the highly questionable track record of the Ohio state elections authorities

how do you explain the huge discrepancy between the Dispatch poll results and the vote totals reported?

This is the best thing you can ad to that board:

Issue 2: Vote by mail.
Poll YES 59% | NO 33%
Rslt YES 36% | NO 63%

Issue 3: Limit campaign contributions.
Poll YES 61% | NO 25%
Rslt YES 33% | NO 67%

Somebody needs to explain that.

Take care.
