40. oh no, we're going in circles
You think this is evidence. Evidence of what? Do you at least have some idea what should be investigated?

The early exits have the same apparent overrepresentation of big-city votes as the weighted exits. Why would one not just conclude that maybe the pollsters included a few too many LA precincts in the national sample and forgot to compensate for it? Or, for all we know, NEP relaxed their interpretation of "big city." If the early exits have too many big-city voters, how does that have any bearing whatsoever on the likelihood of fraud?

Really, I'm totally lost here. The fact that the anomaly appears before the results are weighted to the official returns makes your argument even more obscure to me.
