45. it isn't a matter of "understanding"
Edited on Sun Sep-21-08 01:00 PM by OnTheOtherHand
You claimed, "In FL 2000 the exit polls were deadly accurate, and reflected the exact number of spoiled ballots in Palm Beach and Duvall counties." How in hell do you think you know that?

I guess a bonus question would be, what in hell do you think the official returns have to do with it? But maybe you could focus on supporting your original claim.

ETA: One you might think about for yourself: when high residual rates are concentrated in precincts with very high Gore vote shares, how, specifically, does that affect the exit poll results? (Of course the answer will depend on how one interprets "concentrated.")
