36. Right-wingers who aren't ignoring all this are saying
that it was the exit pollsters who were wrong. I understand that you are arguing that the probability of them accidentally being wrong is infinitesimal. Is the freeper answer to this that Zogby et al were PURPOSEFULLY falsifying the exit poll data to make it look like Kerry was winning, either to discourage Republican voters from bothering to turn out on the West Coast, or so that Dems would be able to claim FRAUD once the actual results came in?

To me, these are the only two explanations for the discrepancies. I have heard a lot of talk about how they could not have been wrong accidentally, but how do we prove that it is the voting machines that are lying, rather than the exit pollsters?

Again, I believe the exit polls were correct. But I think among the folks who aren't desperately trying to pretend this situation doesn't even exist, one theory is as paranoid, or as credible, as the other. I think we should be putting energy also into debunking the lying-pollster theory, even as we gather evidence to support theories of election fraud.

Well done TIA!
