14. I agree completely. I think that's the scientific answer.
Just look at the responses in this thread about how "unreliable" exit polls are. But that isn't true at all.

In FL 2000 the exit polls were deadly accurate, and reflected the exact number of spoiled ballots in Palm Beach and Duvall counties.

The media response was to disband Voter News Service (VNS), the ones who made the correct analysis, and hire Edison/Mikofsky, who pledged not to repeat the same mistakes made by VNS. Only VNS got it exactly right, they never made any mistakes. Their election night data was extremely accurate. They knew that night about the 50,000 missing votes for Gore that were later verified to be missing.

This effort to discredit exit polling is one of the biggest attacks on science that has been committed by this fascist regime. It's an all-out attack on mathematics, the foundation of all science.

I would like there to be action taken by the schools. It seems like it would be a good thing to add to any high school curriculum, and the kids could actually get credit for participating. If the whole operation was conducted in an open, public, and scientific manner, it could teach and at the same time be a useful safeguard against the kind of chicanery that has been so prevalent in our recent elections.
