14. I "believe" they were correct prior to fudging, too.
But I don't know. That's the point.

And I hardly needed to consider the exit polls given the documented shenanigans in FL 2000 and Ohio 2oo4.

And you need not "believe" the exit polls are changed. If I'm not mistaken, the polling org admitted as much. And that's before considering the computers used with exit polling, the protocols, and the chain of custody issues.

As far as believing they "verify, to a degree, the outcome" doesn't cut it. Results are verified, or they aren't. Degrees are the +/- points that are the tip-off that there are concerns where the margin is tight. That's why (in the absence of levers...anyway) we need paper, and adequate audit protocols and recount law. We lack both...significantly.
