GUESS WHO DID THE EXIT POLLS...
Mitofsky International ^

Posted on 11/03/2004 4:11:18 AM PST by paudio

Mitofsky International is a survey research company founded by Warren J. Mitofsky in 1993. Its primary business is conducting exit polls for major elections around the world. It does this work exclusively for news organizations. Mitofsky has directed exit polls and quick counts since 1967 for almost 3,000 electoral contests in United States, Mexico, Russia and the Philippines.

....

From 1967 to 1990, Mitofsky was executive director of the CBS News election and survey unit, and was an executive producer of its election night broadcasts. He conducted the first exit polls for CBS in 1967, and developed the projection and analysis system used successfully by CBS and Voter News Service. He started the CBS News/New York Times Poll in 1975 and directed it for CBS for its first 15 years.

After last night they should scrap exit polling altogether.This would force the pundits to actually look at the incoming data.It would delay some state calls because no exit polls to compare with actual returns but accuracy will improve remarkably.

"MI’s president, Warren Mitofsky started and directed Voter Research & Surveys from 1990 to 1993, which was the election consortium of the four major television networks, ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC. It is now known as Voter News Service (VNS)."

So much for is "accuracy". His media bias was showing AGAIN.

No, they were reporting from the exit polls, but this company was conducting them.
They were looking to hire Ohioans for exit polling back in August.

No. The consortium of six MSM (FOX News Channel, CBS, NBC, CNN and the Associated Press) give the contract to these two 'polling' companies to do the job.

What happened here folks was the Rat media attempting a "November Surprise" by trying to suppress the Republican vote and it didn't work plain and simple.

If they were looking to cook the exit polls as far back as August, that implies the strategy someone suggested yesterday (if I could remember who, I'd ping them) that the Rats were going to say that the exit polls were so much for Kerry, that if the votes went for Bush, it meant Bush had forged the votes.

Early on the Dem shills were saying, these results can't be right. We have exit polls showing that Kerry was leading everywhere. Obviously, this was done to set the stage for the lawsuits. Did you know that "every vote counts and every vote will be counted"? Clearly, the polls have to be right and the results wrong.

Go Bush! Call Iowa, New Mexico and Nevada

Kind of sounded like he was saying those exit polls, for which they pay, may have been leaked by Kerry people.

Well, whoever they are, they are effectively out of business this morning. They did a BAD job and nobody with any brains will ever hire them again.

Did you listen to Hewitt last night, especially when John Podhoretz was on? Also Mark Steyn?

The words "possible fraud" and "fraud" were used regarding this exit polling scam and Podhoretz thought it was also aimed at someone wanting to make a killing in the stock market.

I want to know who leaked it all.

Man I knew yesterday afternoon that Rush and Hannity and even my local guys were sounding mighty depressed.

All Hannity could say was Florida panhandle and Ohio.

Now Kerry is gonna wait it out a bit and give himself some juice to look more noble when he concedes...he has no choice.

It's worth the look on Couric and Lauer's mugs this morning...lol

I'll check his book out....would also like to see what Bernard Goldman (I think that's his name) has to say about this connection to CBS. Disgraceful and hopefully illegal and provable in some kind of court....

Let's get everything computerized by the next election. That way, the results will come-in much more quickly, exit polling will be irrelevant.
