Scientists say Bush win beat million to one exit poll odds

Officially, President Bush won November’s election by 2.5%, yet exit polls showed Kerry winning by 3%. A new report by a group of university statisticians, says the odds of a discrepancy this large between the national exit poll and election results happening by accident are close to 1 in a million.

Either something was wrong with the exit polling, or something was wrong with the vote count. A number of Ph.D. statisticians who have seen preliminary versions of the exit poll study have not refuted it.

Using computers for voting was a bad idea from the beginning. It is time for good old fashioned counting. Local people volunteering in their neighborhoods all across the country could handle it. It doesn't matter if the count takes a week or so.
