121. You just don 't get it, do you?
Edited on Sun Aug-30-09 09:52 PM by WillE

You have blinders on. If you read the posts up-thread, and I
know you did, you would have learned that even assuming the
levers 0.79% spoilage rate in 2004 (for those who did not
leave the voting place in frustration), lack of transparency
enables humans to spoil the count.

Apparently, you believe that the human counters and election
officials could not have been influnced by BushCo.

Now, address this anomaly since you failed to do so up-thread:

1- The average NY WPE when Clinton was the incumbent (1996,
2000) was 0.6%.
Good Levers. Good people. Low WPE. Within the MoE.
Bill, you win. Levers are fraud-proof.

2- The average WPE when a Bush was the incumbent (1988, 1992
and 2004) was 8.0%.
Good levers. Bad people. High WPE. Way beyond the MoE.
Bill, you lose. People are not.

         1988 1992 1996 2000 2004
WPE      -7.2 -4.6 +2.1 -3.3 -12.2

Cast     7174 7613 6830 7001 7618
Recorded 6456 6927 6316 6823 7391
Unct(net) 718  686  514  178  277

Dem Share (%)
ExitPoll 55.2 52.0 58.4 61.4 64.5
Recorded 51.6 49.7 59.5 60.2 58.4
Diff      3.6  2.3 -1.1  1.2  6.1

So now I assume that you will say:
The NY exit polls were right in 1996 and 2000 when Clinton was
the incumbent.
The NY exit polls were wrong in 1988, 1992 and 2004 when a
Bush was the incumbent.

But with those blinders still on, you will be engaged in
wishful thinking.
