...the New York 2004 Exit Poll Discrepancy!

Still waiting. An average number based on the total vote padding you've come up with would be fine.

I know there's "more than one way to skin a cat." You've said that already. So let's rule out massive lever machine fraud and move on!

After all, before you showed up, this was supposed to be a thread about NOT trusting computers to count votes -- NOT one about TRUSTING exit polls!

Ridge says he was pressured to raise terror alert
In book, ex-Homeland Security chief hints Bush aides wanted to sway vote
