43. huh?
Edited on Wed Nov-12-08 11:59 AM by OnTheOtherHand
When did I ever claim that I could prove Bush won any elections? You're still talking with that imaginary OTOH in your head.

I couldn't care less whether Freeman has serious math skills: they aren't relevant to the issue. My big gripe about Freeman is that he's wrong. Apparently that doesn't interest you much either way, since I can't seem to get you to address the substance of his arguments in any way whatsoever. (ETA: That would be fine if you wanted to discuss some other substance instead, but I'm not seeing that, either.)

Self-identified conservatives outnumber self-identified liberals in survey after survey. We can discuss the relevance, but don't pretend not to know it.

If votes are suppressed, then those people aren't going to be able to vote in exit polls.

What you wrote was: "Sure, voter suppression would knock down exit polls. They might even explain some of the discrepancies between earlier polls and the final results." I asked you what you meant by "knock down." You moved on to "there will be less votes for the exit polls." I remained confused. Now I can tell that you think of participating in an exit poll as a "vote."

So, apparently we agree that most vote suppression would not contribute to exit poll discrepancies. There, that wasn't so hard, was it? :shrug:
