.But the counts that were being reported on TV bore little resemblance to the exit poll projections. In key state after state, tallies differed significantly from the projections. In every case, that shift favored President George W. Bush. Nationwide, exit polls projected a 51 to 48 percent Kerry victory, the mirror image of Bush's 51 to 48 percent win. But the exit poll discrepancy is not the only cause for concern.
As I never tire of saying, the exit polls were the outlier; the other polls taken just before the election all showed Bush winning.Vote suppression and electoral irregularities in Ohio have been documented, first in January 2005 by Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee, and in June 2005 by the Democratic National Committee, which found, in the words of DNC Chairman Howard Dean: ``More than a quarter of all Ohio voters reported problems with their voting experience."
The Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee and the Democratic National Committee wouldn't have a horseface in this race, would they? And the percentage of Ohio Democrats reporting problems with their "voting experience" was not significantly higher than the percentage of Ohio Republicans reporting their own problems.
