65. Republicans Wary of Pollsters
<snip>There is also the theory of oversampling Kerry voters which, while not a prevaling theory, probably does have at lest a slight effect given that Republicans are likely to ignore a pollster than a Democrat (since the pollsters are decked out in ABC-CBS-NBC-AP-etc. apparrell and over 50% of repubs don't trust the media, compared to just 38% of Dems). <snip>

Yet... the overwhelming 'reason' given by MSM was that "Moral Values"
was important to voters -- which shocked a lot of correspondents. Is it possible, that the Republicans gave info about the things they were most worried about, but didn't tell who they voted for? Anyone have the Numbers for how many picked Moral Values comment And told who they voted for, -vs just giving that reason without telling who they voted for?

just wondering.
