rBr logic question
100 people go into a room to vote for either A or B.

20 people come out and say they voted when asked; 11 for A and 9 for B.

20 more people who are asked how they voted refuse to say who they voted for.

The actual vote count is questionable and uncertain.

How many of the people who refused to to say who they voted for, voted for B?

1. All for bush .....
e.z. because the exit polls were right when the people were voting but
wrong after they stopped voting .....

2. Well... if you WANT it to come out a certain way, you rationalize...
the answer to come out the way you want it to (just as Mitofsky/Edison did).

See my post here. It is an exercise in logic applied to the rBr "phenomena".
