NOW I'M REALLY CONFUSED. WAS THERE A (N)ATURAL (B)USH (R)ESPONDER?
Edited on Sun Apr-10-05 01:10 AM by TruthIsAll
Could it have been a NBR?

Not an RBR (reluctant).
Not an EBR (exuberant).

Just a plain old Natural Bush Responder?

Besides, wasn't it Edison-Mitofsky who matched the votes? They
adjusted the "How Voted in 2000" demographic
weighting from 41 Bush/39% Gore in the preliminary 13047 to
43%/37% after adding those last 613 respondents in the Final
13660.

It sure wasn't the respondents who changed the weights. They
wouldn't have a clue.

Furthermore, the true mix was probably 39 Bush/ 40% Gore,
since 1.5-2.0 million Bush 2000 voters  passed on - as did
Gore's. So maybe Bush voters WERE a little exuberant in the
preliminary (41/39%). 

Even so, Kerry won the preliminary poll by 51-48%. Bush won
the final by the same 51-48% (with the help of that impossible
43/37 mix).

No RBR.
No EBR.
Just NBR.

So let's get back to reality.
Let's make it a very plausible Gore 40/39%
Kerry won by 7.42 million votes.

Voted	2000
	         Mix	Bush	Kerry	Nader
22.471	None	18.38%	41%	57%	2%
48.904	Gore	40%	8%	91%	1%
47.681	Bush	39%	90%	9%	1%
3.203	Other	2.62%	13%	71%	16%

	      	100%	46.18%	52.25%	1.58%

122.26	Votes	122.26	56.46	63.88	1.93

Kerry	Margin	7.42
