COME ON GUYS, WHICH IS IT: RBR OR EBR ?
Edited on Sat Apr-09-05 08:35 PM by TruthIsAll
NAYSAYERS MADE A COMPLETE 180 DEGREE TURNAROUND WHEN THEY
CANNED THE "RELUCTANT BUSH RESPONDER" (RBR)  IN
FAVOR OF THE "EXUBERANT BUSH RESPONDER" (EBR).

NOW THEY CLAIM THAT THE NATIONAL EXIT POLL REFLECTS A
"BANDWAGON" OF BUSH SUPPORT FROM THE NATIONAL EXIT
POLL'S FINAL 613 RESPONDENTS WHEN ASKED "WHO DID YOU VOTE
FOR IN 2000" (43 BUSH/37 GORE).

WE HAVE SHOWN THAT 43/37% IS IMPOSSIBLE ON ITS FACE...

AND THE FIRST 13047 RESPONDENTS DIDN'T SHOW ANY SORT OF
"BANDWAGON EFFECT", ONLY THE LAST 613.

SO NOW, NAYSAYERS MUST ALSO AGREE THAT THE PRELIMINARY POLL OF
13047, WHICH KERRY WON BY 51-48%, WAS CORRECT.  THE
RESPONDENTS TOLD THE TRUTH AND DID NOT INFLATE THE BUSH
NUMBERS (41/39) - THERE WAS NO DISCERNIBLE BANDWAGON EFFECT. 

IN FACT, KERRY WINS EVEN ASSUMING A SMALL BUSH BANDWAGON
EFFECT, AS REPRESENTED BY THE 41% BUSH/39% GORE MIX, SINCE WE
KNOW THAT THE 41/39% MIX IS ALSO OFF, BUT CLOSER TO THE TRUTH.


BUSH 2000 VOTERS COULD NOT HAVE BEEN HIGHER THAN 40% OF THE
122 MILLION WHO VOTED IN 2004. THAT ASSUMES 100% TURNOUT AND
EVEN INCLUDES 1.5 TO 2 MILLION BUSH 2000 VOTERS WHO HAVE SINCE
PASSED ON TO A BETTER PLACE.

NAYSAYERS, YOU CAN'T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

RELUCTANT OR EXUBERANT?

WILL YOUR NEXT ONE BE NONCHALANT?

1. Next: CBR. Confused Bush Responder.
They didn't know when they were supposed to be exuberant or reluctant, but the memo should be out by now.



I wonder if an animated cartoon isn't the best way to illustrate the impossibility of the numerical results of this travesty.

5. No you see now, it's the religious bush responder.
In all the churches they rose up out of nowhere, possibly even from the dead? Seems a little interesting, considering 73,000 approximately finished their exit polls at midnight and Kerry had won.

8. All right folks, GET IT STRAIGHT. "dKr" Droll Kerry Responders
:sarcasm:
I don't know why I have to do all the heavy lifting around here conceptually. I'm working so hard I've developed DUDD, Democratic Underground Dissonance Disorder and I plan to file for workman's compensation.

Now, to set it straight. There was a special type of responder,

the droll Kerry responder.

You scoff. Well, look at Kerry, witty, urbane, and DROLL (at times).
Why wouldn't his responders be the same.

My hypothesis is:

dBr = x (with x being any number necessary to justify a Bush win)

Any questions, bring 'em on.

Seriously, the absurdities are piling one upon another from "the researchers/debaters." The TIA challenge was engaged in only tepidly and the various "hypotheses" and "fancy functions" have fallen one by one.

We win and now have the task of moving forward. Carter-Baker is important but not the "ball game." There's the general public, which is highly skeptical. Let's look for multiple vehicles to get out the great stuff TIA's done plus all the other levels of investigation here at DU.

This place rocks. It's the "gate to freedom"
