79. No, that's not it.
Whoever we support we should care. It's when the polls, even internal polls are so far off for no good reason. We have only the exit polls to explain it and we aren't given the data, only the weighted polls that always balance to adjust to the outcome. (Really, that's standard, not a conspiracy fear)
The exit polls are to look at trends, not reveal fraud.

We should really look at it when the highly favored candidate wins in the handcounted areas (where he was expected to have the least support because it is rural and small towns) but looses in the diebold areas that should have been his strength.

We should care when this is the same software tested in California and Colorado and failed so badly they won't allow them to be used and NH refused to allow the testing.
We should care when the polls were correct for all other candidates in both part except these two.

I hope if I were a strong Hillary candidate I would still care about this.

I like them all, I appreciate having a real race,
But this is really troubling and November is coming.

I'm not saying Hillary did something (or even Mark Penn). It's not the machines were vulnerable to tampering, they were prone to mistakes with no one tampering. Heck republicans might want to put a stop to the tsunami that they saw coming so that even if he is the nominee it won't be this huge thing.

November will come and we shouldn't ignore this. That's what I don't understand.
