    The dust may still be settling on the 2012 election, but there is good reason for conservatives to find optimism for the future. Recently, I found such hope reviewing the full exit poll data from our recent election. The bottom line on the presidential race was this: Mitt Romney lost the election because voters liked him less than Barack Obama. Despite claims otherwise, the election was not a referendum on Obama’s record or even red state values versus blue state values. Obama and the Democrats have claimed a “mandate,” but the data shows voters actually oppose President Obama’s programs like...

    I know you're polled out, but with all the navel-gazing today about demographics and the future of the GOP, I figured people might want a link to the numbers behind last night's disaster. Here's CNN's version, Fox News's version, and WaPo's version, which breaks the trend lines down by arrows. (Mouse over for the numbers.) Noteworthy: The sample does apparently include respondents from all 50 states. There was some question about that after news broke last month that the exit pollster would exclude voters in 19 states, but WaPo reported at the time that that was only true of individual...

    NEW YORK - Warren Mitofsky, a survey researcher who pioneered the use of exit polls to cover elections and helped develop the sampling method used in most modern telephone polling, has died. Mitofsky, who was 71, died Friday in New York City of an aortic aneurysm. Joe Lenski, Mitofsky's partner in exit polling for the last two national elections, confirmed his death Saturday. Mitofsky started conducting exit polls in 1967 for CBS News and developed the projection system and analysis system used by CBS and later by a consortium of news organizations that conducted national exit polls. "He was the...

    NEW YORK (AP) - The top Democrat on the House Judiciary Committee has asked The Associated Press and five broadcast networks to turn over raw exit poll data collected on Election Day so that any discrepancies between the data and the certified election results can be investigated. Rep. John Conyers Jr. of Michigan said in a letter released Tuesday in Washington that the polling firms that conducted the polls on behalf of the news organizations, Mitofsky International and Edison Media Research, had declined to share the information with the committee. "Without the raw data, the committee will be severely handicapped...

    NEW YORK - The consortium of news organizations that runs the election exit polls has voted to delay distributing data for several hours on future election days. Exit poll data will not be distributed until after 4 p.m. ET to the organizations that have paid for it: ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox News Channel and The Associated Press, NBC’s elections director, Sheldon Gawiser, said Thursday. On Nov. 2, the companies conducting the polls, Edison Media Research and Mitofsky International, distributed the first wave of exit poll data at 1 p.m., and the numbers were immediately leaked on the Internet and...

    November 8, 2004 Myths of the Republican Mullah-cracy You can't blame Jesus for the voters' choice John Hood It took only a few hours for media talking heads to come up with an explanation for why the tax-cutting, war-mongering ignoramus George W. Bush got re-elected on Tuesday. It couldn't have been, they agreed, that the electorate truly wanted four more years of Republican domestic and foreign policies. After all, didn't John Kerry win every substantive point on the issues that really matter? Wasn't Bush an accidental, illegitimate president in the first place? Another explanation had to be found. Quickly...

    THE POLLING The new $10 million polling system used by many news organizations to predict the outcome of the presidential race had a number of problems that led to the early erroneous impression that John Kerry was heading for victory, according to a report prepared by the system's architects. The report, written by Joe Lenski and Warren Mitofsky and obtained by The New York Times, details systemic glitches that skewed the data in ways of which several news organizations, who paid tens of thousands of dollars for the service, were not aware. In some cases, the report said, survey takers...

    RJC Analysis of 2004 Jewish Vote Shows Unmistakable Shift Toward Republicans Washington, DC... Based on several exit polls recently released, it is clear that President Bush did substantially better among Jewish voters this year than he did in 2000. From 1992 to today we've seen more than a 100% increase in the Jewish Republican vote. The trend is unmistakable: · In 1992, President Bush (41) won 11% of the Jewish vote · In 1996, Senator Dole won 16% of the Jewish vote · In 2000, President Bush (43) won 19% of the Jewish vote · In 2004, preliminary results indicate...

    Can we finaly lay to rest the quaint notion that an "exit poll" has any scientific or practical utility? It was amazing watching the MSM trying to rationlize their expensive polling data against the reality of real world poll results. Even FOX News spent most of the night fighting back the realization that their expensive exit poll data was coming well and truly unglued on the most important evening of the entire political season.

    Don't believe ANY reporting from any source that relies on the results of yesterday's exit polls. Every statistic within them is flawed. Example: Gender gap was Bush +7 for men and -7 for women, but turnout showed a +8 edge for women. This is statistically impossible given the now known results. If this BASIC number is so flawed, then NOTHING in the exit polls can be relied upon. Having said that, the MSM will continue to cite their flawed poll to support whatever 13th hour arguments they make regarding the "meaning" of this election and the "direction" Bush should govern...

    Exit poll: Florida Democratic voters angry with President Bush By John Pain The Associated Press March 9, 2004 MIAMI ? Many voters in Florida's Democratic presidential primary Tuesday said they were angry with President Bush's administration, worse off financially than they were four years ago and in favor of reducing the U.S. military presence in Iraq, according to an Associated Press exit poll. Half the voters in the battleground state that Sen. John Kerry won as expected said they were angry with Bush's administration, and their distaste was almost as great for the president's brother, Gov. Jeb Bush, the poll...

Both Davis and Bustamante had pandered to the illegal immigrant agenda. Davis had signed into law the illegal driver’s license law (SB60) that allowed anyone from around the world to walk into the DMV and get a drivers license. Davis also lead the effort to stop Prop 187, a law that would have stopped handing out state tax money to...
