207. No Clue?
From what I gather the research means that the people who put out the numbers cooked them through and through and that the only... ONLY numbers that are of any use to any of us are the raw numbers. Raw meaning pre-cooked.

The 66% increase in the vote turnouts were cooked into the raw numbers as a last gasp to make the final NEP numbers match the diebold and ES&S cooked up numbers.

Too, one must remember that only one person on this board has had the opportunity to look at the whole raw number sets only because the diebold and ES&S numbers didn't match the NEP's. And the outcome of that effort as represented here on DU has never, NEVER, been peer reviewed and as we all know such 'science' can't be taken on faith alone. Whoops, not all of us... some do have faith in those privately established findings.

In short, this research shows, once again, how this nation was screwed in 2004.
