So, how do they differ from Zogby or the other pollsters used by the Drive-By Media -- other than they are being more honest about cheating?

But the DNC and DUmmies insist that exit polls are a hundred times more accurate than actually counting ballots.

Everyone should regularly lie to pollsters just to mess up their phony statistics.

What's the old saying?
Garbage IN, Garbage OUT.

Her big mistake was in getting
caught. From the sound of it,
either one of her own people
ratted on her, or she had a
competitor's mole in her employ.

According to a federal indictment, Costin told employees to alter poll data, and managers at the company told employees to "talk to cats and dogs" when instructing them to fabricate the surveys.

Interesting--if you read the first paragraph, it implies that Bush and Lieberman are somehow part of the wrongdoing, when in fact they were victims.

Thanks for posting this.

The conviction of this rascal will be in large part due to laws passed by Congress post 1996 election, and those laws resulted from citizen action initiated here at FR.

The polls were so far off in '96, that around 98% of them were outside their "margins of error." Even up to a week out from election day, some polls still showed Clinton beating Dole by as much as 18% (actual was around 8%). A UK reported wrote that if the US media had not been so biased, Sen. Dole might have had a chance. The interference by Perot, was probably the most damaging though.

Because of this of I posted a website in the Fall of '96 pushing what I called the "Truth In Polling Act" and asked congressional represenatives to enact it. They ended up writing some laws, which basically did the things "TIPA" called for, some of which probably contributed to the conviction of this liberal idiot, because publishing "demographics" was a large part of it. Clinton had a gender gap with men, so if you polled 80% of women in '96, you were going to get a poll that said Clinton would win. The new laws help prevent such blatant slanting.

ACTIVISM WORKS!

Now, may all the knees of the liberal fools at the PEW Institute shake endlessly.
