For the Last Time, the 2004 NEP Exit Poll Did Not Provide Evidence of Voter Fraud in the 2004 Election

Alas, the absurd idea that the 2004 NEP exit poll, whose early unweighted data showed a Kerry lead, indicated widespread voter fraud in the 2004 election is still with us, promoted especially by alleged exit poll “expert”, Steven Freeman. For a useful demolition job on Freeman’s highly flawed analysis, see the recent paper by Rick Brady, posted on the website, Stones Cry Out. Some comments on Brady’s paper, as well as further disparagement of the exit polls/voter fraud thesis, may be found in this post over at Mystery Pollster.
Now can we please get back to thinking about the real issue: how to beat the folks who did, in fact, win the last election?
