81. you say it's the point, but you aren't supporting it:

ETA: I forgot: thanks for the lead on, maybe, WESH. So your impression is that the VNS person gave an interview to the local affiliate? If so, that seems a bit weird to me, but I dunno.

And that is the point, isn't it? The exit polls showed that the spoiled ballots would have gone heavily for Gore.


Please offer your mathematical explanation of how the Florida exit poll reveals how the spoiled ballots were voted. I bet yowzayowzayowza is curious as well, and probably for the same reason.

(No, I don't think that people deliberately voided their own ballots.)

What you are looking at is "how" the respondents "believe" they voted. In FL 2000 this was an accurate snapshot.

Unfortunately, what I am looking at is a lot of hand-waving assertions. You seem to think you know what the exit poll data revealed, but when pressed for specifics, you seem either to retreat or to change the subject.

My entire argument is that VNS had an ACCURATE snapshot of the election in FL 2000, on election night, in real time, and it showed that Gore was missing some 50,000 votes.

Well, there has been no argument yet. I keep asking for one. Trying to ask pointed questions hasn't helped, so perhaps you should just try to lay it out on your own terms.

So, do you understand the problem now with your whole attitude about this?

You mean, my "attitude" when I ask you to support your claims? Seems pretty scientific to me.
