47. TIA didn't learn anything here
Do the math.
1 in 79,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Where the math stands:

The naysayers continue their relentless attempts to mask the overwhelming evidence provided by confirmation of hundreds of pre=election and exit polls

What did the pre-election polls say at the time?

9/19 ELECTION MODEL: KERRY 248 EV, 49.47% VOTE, 14% WIN PROB

Hey, TIA accidentally nailed the outcome within 3 EVs (and +1% of the popular) using pre-election polls. "Hundreds of pre-election polls" now means dozens cherry-picked from the hundreds, after the tepid response to the projection above.

So life goes on. Febble's work is extra credit in statistics this semester, and TIA retains his niche status alongside the time traveler dude. Since TIA never responded directly to criticism anyway, these seance sessions only reinforce his position in the internet pantheon.
