POSSIBLE CA EXIT POLLS--LEAKED DATA
Calblog ^ | October 7, 2003 | Armed Prophet

Posted on 10/07/2003 2:47:41 PM PDT by publius1

Apparently Leaked Exit Polling Says... Armed Prophet here, with what I believe is a major scoop, though it may not be entirely surprising.

That is, I'm hearing that early exit polling -- which includes absentees -- already shows the recall and Arnold both with "double digit" leads. (I'm a bit surprised to hear that those numbers are already being tabulated, but this is what I'm told.) Speculation is the race may be called within a few hours of the polls closing.

I obviously can't vouch for it myself -- I'm in DC -- but the source I'm hearing this from is very well-connected in state and national politics; if anybody would know this kind of thing out here, it's this person. So take this information with a bit of caution. But if I'm right, you heard it here first.

(Cross-posted -- sort of -- on Armed Prophet.)

"Speculation is the race may be called within a few hours of the polls closing."

".. Except that the first dozen court filings to enjoin the announcement will be filed about 20 deconds after the polls close. "

The number of disputed votes must exceed the margin of victory. So a really large margin will avoid a credible vote contest.

The election is but a sideshow, the real show is going to be seeing what the Rats are going to do to try to nullify the results.

The Democrats are obsessed with power. They can't convince the people to vote for them so they'll try to get a judge to decide the people are too stupid to get it right on Election Day.

Forget the speculation. Orange county (1.3 million voters) will not be reporting results until 10:00a.m. tomorrow morning.

Just to let all of you know.

You can get the OFFICIAL results by going here:

http://vote2003.ss.ca.gov/

You can click an issue, or they have a Java Applet that will scroll results. Keep in mind that we are on the west coast so our polls close at 8pm which is 11 est.

I voted in Temecula, Riverside County, Touch screen voting went very easy. About 30 seconds.

ABout 10 ppl in line before me. Also saw 4 people who weren't on the rolls vote provisional. Predominant Republican Area.

I moved here in June from Illinois, and was worried, but They found me right away.

ANother thing I hate. They never bother to ask anyone for any Identification whatsoever. I gave my name, signed the sheet, listed my address, and that was it. They gave me my card and I went to Vote.

Most I talked to were voting for Arnold, and yes on the recall.

Regards,
Joe

I think they'll call it early. If the turnout in San Francisco, is light, we don't need to wait for Orange County. The Democrats next pit stop is the courts.

Question: Does CA have an early voting procedure statewide where you can vote at predetermined locations using the same equipment/ballots as if on election day? If so, why do so many opt to vote absentee?

Santa Cruz County had voting over the weekend at the county office's.

Greetings from a former Simi Valley resident! And what an inspiring place to cast your vote, overlooking the beautiful Tierra Rijada! Is the cross still on Mt. McCoy??

Thanks... I had read somewhere that in the LA area there was early voting at twelve locations. I wasn't sure if it was statewide or just a local option thing. It seems an early voting process with tighter restrictions on the use of absentee voting would make for a smoother after election process, jmo.

Sounds like a RAT covert plan to get the networks to call the election for Arnold and the recall a win to discourage voters who haven't yet voted for either.

Won't happen. People not in California can't understand what it feels like to vote for this election and the excitement at the prospect of taking back the government. Your analogy with Florida doesn't compute. If people were getting feedback that a vote for recall was hopeless, that might be the case. But all indications are that Gray is toast. And people want to be a part of of that.

Republicans will want to join the bandwagon and make sure Davis is ousted -- they will vote!
Oh, I certainly hope so. I just can never put anything past a rat.

I live in Central Contra Costa County in the NoCal Bay Area. Last November, there were, maybe, two voters in the room along with me to vote. After work, same time as today.

I drove up at 6 pm, saw a line. As I approached the door, I looked back and the line had quadrupled. It looked like the return line at Target on Saturday afternoon. Everyone seemed very anticipatory and there was a definite positive buzz, along the lines of, this is worth it, it's important.

I was in line for 20 minutes, and it was worth it.

I think it is best for us to not post exit polling data that we cannot confirm as breaking news. Anyone could make anything up at this point. Just ask Coop.

OK, I'm asking you, Coop... what is our dear AM referring to?

Like Bob Novak, I'm not at liberty to reveal my sources.
