Another probability analysis to illustrate why rBr is implausible....
Edited on Wed May-25-05 12:51 PM by TruthIsAll
	RELUCTANT BUSH RESPONDER PROBABILITY ANALYSIS					
Once again, we show how implausible the rBr hypothesis is
using simple binomial probabilities.
								
How to read the tables:						
Each Case assumes 1000 respondents and a given response rate.

For example, look at Case 1:
It assumes a 53% response rate						
For the scenario where Kerry wins the exit poll by 52-48%, the
probability that Bush would win 479 (54%) of the 887 who
refused to be interviewed is .02% (1 in 5000).

1. How many different ways does one have to show its implausible?
Before Mitofsky just rolls over and says "You're right...I just was ordered to lay it out as an easy exscuse."

It's over. The distraction doesn't do anything but distract, focus back on the real problem.
