The Nuts Never Give Up
I had thought that last Tuesday's big win by the Democrats would end the nonsense about Diebold stealing elections, but of course I underestimated the idiotarians. Their new claim is that the Democrats would have won even bigger
if Diebold and other companies hadn't prevented it.According to EDA, the Edison-Mitofsky National Exit Poll, conducted by a consortium of news organizations, showed at 7 p.m. on Election Night an 11.5% vote margin in favor of Dems nationwide. But by 1:00 p.m. on the following day, according to EDA, "[T]he Edison-Mitofsky poll had been adjusted, by a process known as 'forcing,' to match the reported vote totals for the election." The adjusted exit polls showed "a 7.6 percent margin exactly mirroring the reported vote totals."
Michelle Malkin has a good post
on Kos's nutty claims about Diebold stealing votes in Florida's 13th CD. One problem: Diebold's machines weren't used in that election. The claim is that 18,000 voters didn't vote
in the congressional election.But the fight is unlikely to end there. Jennings is challenging the results of the election because touch-screen voting machines in Sarasota County reported about 18,000 people - one in eight voters - did not vote in the congressional race, but made choices in other races. That rate was significantly higher than other counties in the district.
Those undervotes will be checked in a state-mandated manual recount Thursday. Elections officials must also send in counts of provisional, military and overseas ballots on Friday.
Significantly higher than other counties in the district doesn't tell me anything. Apparently about 12% of the voters didn't make a choice in that election. What is the percentage in the other counties? There is the usual claim that the ballot was confusing (those confusing touchscreens?) but apparently 88% of the people were able to locate that race.
Of course, a bunch of people are now calling for a "do-over".
