7. Definitive numbers based on 4 pm model and closing numbers are secret!
Definitive numbers based on model in effect at 2pm and 4pm seem to be available - but then when polls closed the results using the 4pm model then in effect are a secret- why - should one be curious?

ONLY the very late, post 6pm EST -post model correction to make exit poll results a "best fit with actual reported vote totals" - are to be discussed??????!!! :-( .

And the fellow feels no problem with the need to tweak his model for over a dozen key states that were outside the MOE based on "actual results" - God I wish I had blinders or rose colored glasses that were that strong! LOL :-)

The fellow that did them is claiming that the only numbers officially released are those that he uses to make projections which are only the "post-correction to best fit with "actual" " numbers. (Do not look for logic in these statements) - and those really fit well with the results! LOL :-) LOL


The other earlier numbers "are not his fault"

I do love CYA!

I love even more the ability of our - "not controlled by the right wing GOP - we just act that way" - media to say nothing about this, while talking about the Ukraine exit polls! Media around the world is having fun laughing at our "free press" as they listen to our lectures about our freedoms!
