25. I believe there's a strong element of denial there
Edited on Sat Aug-18-07 01:35 PM by Time for change
There are some things that people just don't want to believe, and election fraud in the United States is one of them. Thankfully, there are also large numbers of people who are concerned and vigilent. If not, I believe that the Democrats never would have taken over Congress in 06.

As it is, it appears, according to 06 exit polls, that the Republicans got away with a shift of about 4% of the vote (same as in the 04 presidential election), not to mention voter suppression that would not show up as exit poll discrepancies -- thus preventing a Democratic landslide in 06: (link to actual article won't work -- :shrug:)

It should be noted, however, that it is impossible to estimate the exact amount of the theft, since exit polls are often off by a certain unknown amount.
