Okay, exit polls aren’t perfect, but they were 100 percent accurate until the presidential election of 2000 pushed George Bush into the oval office. Now why all of a sudden have exit polls become more inaccurate?
Yesterday, the exit polls showed a dead even race between Tom Barrett and Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker. The election was anyone’s to win. But Walker won by six points. The Republicans have a long history of election fraud over the last twelve years. The Wisconsin recall election was probably no different.
For example, in 2004 an electronic voting machine was found to have credited President Bush with 3,893 extra votes in a suburb of Columbus where only 638 people voted. During that presidential election, 150,000 Democrats were taken off the voter rolls between the primary and the general election. Nobody told them, so they had no chance to appeal. When those people voted, they didn’t know they’d been whacked off the rolls. So the exit polls showed John Kerry defeating President Bush in Ohio, but when the votes of the legal voters were counted, Bush won by less than 130,000 votes. In other words, Kerry really defeated Bush in Ohio and won the presidential election, but election fraud stopped what should’ve been.
Below is the story from Reuters about the exist polls in Wisconsin, and below that are the stories of fraud in Ohio in 2004. However, election fraud has been discovered in several different states that Bush really lost. Now how could those exit polls be wrong? Let me count the way.
(Reuters) – Exit polls show the Wisconsin recall election on Tuesday is essentially tied between
Governor Scott Walker and Democratic challenger Tom Barrett, CNN said.
The CNN data is based on interviews with voters after they cast ballots and not on actual results.
Most polling stations closed at 8 p.m. CT (9 p.m. EDT), although voters in line to were allowed to cast ballots after the official deadline. First results were expected to begin trickling in from around the state soon after the polls closed, although the winner might not be known for hours.
Walker is only the third governor in U.S. history to face a recall from office. He angered Democrats and unions when he championed a law to severely restrict the collective bargaining of unionized state and local government workers. Walker said the changes were necessary to close a large state budget deficit.
