44. WPE is no standard at all.
Edited on Thu Aug-20-09 11:28 PM by Bill Bored
Show me where Bush did better in the precincts with the highest WPE than he did in 2000. If you can't, then I don't think this WPE stuff is particularly telling.

What was the WPE in Cuyahoga County, Ohio in 2004 again, where they had all that ACTUAL, CONFIRMED, HONEST-TO-GAWD, IMPOSSIBLE-ON-LEVER-MACHINES, VOTE SWITCHING?

The truth is, if there were vote-count fraud, the exit polls are too crude to show it. That's too bad because a lot of folks burned a lot of hours on this crap, including me for a while -- and even now arguing with you! I'm still a little upset about the wild goose chase, but most bona fide election integrity efforts have not yielded much better results anyway. A few more states with paper ballots counted only by computers is all anyone has to show for that.

Still, I'd suggest you learn more about how voting systems and election laws actually work. That might require getting off your butt, or at least browsing some other websites besides TIA's Geocities pages, but you'll get there if you try.
