22. The raw data show that Bush didn't do better compared to 2000 in the precincts with the largest WPE.

"If the fact that votes cant be mechanically switched on levers constitutes the thrust of your case, then you have nothing."

No, we have EVERYTHING, because there is no other way to account for the exit poll discrepancy. Have you come up with the number of machines that would account for it yet? What are you waiting for? Go ahead MAKE MY DAY! Tell me how many lever machines would have to be hacked! :popcorn:

"There are many ways to skin a cat. Election officials can place defective machines in highly Democratic precincts and then miscount the votes."

Really? How many machines would that have to be to account for the exit poll discrepancy? And what would the UNDERVOTE RATE have to be on those machines to account for the exit poll discrepancy? And statewide, or in NYC?

It seems you may have admitted above that votes can't be switched on the lever machines, so that leaves undervotes and overvotes. Maybe all the Dems tried to vote for Bush AND Kerry and the overvote interlocks on the lever machines didn't work! Maybe the lever machines had Butterfly Ballots! Maybe there were prepunched CHADS! Or maybe the lever machines were connected to the Internets and there was a Man-in-the-Middle Attack! :rofl:

As to the raw data, it showed that Bush didn't do better than he did in 2000 in the precincts with the largest WPEs, remember? So how can the exit polls be used to infer fraud? You don't believe that because you don't think they're using the real data. But even if they released it as you would like, in violation of confidentiality, you wouldn't believe that's the real data either, unless it agreed with your theory. After all, anyone can make up data!

As long as the data don't confirm YOUR theory, you will say it's not the real data. That's why this is all a waste of time. It doesn't matter if they release the data or not. You just have a need to perpetuate your theory. What is unknown is why -- and who you are working for.

After you answer the question about how many levers would have to have been hacked to account for the NY discrepancy, maybe you can explain why the CONFIRMED vote switching observed in Cuyahoga County, OH (done with punch cards), the alleged Internet man-in-the-middle attacks, and the paperless touchscreen DREs in some OH counties, didn't lead to an even LARGER exit poll discrepancy than NY's, where such vote switching and attacks were impossible and the touchscreens were nonexistent.

But I doubt you will explain any of this because you CAN'T.
