Scientific analysis of the elections in the U.S.A.
Voting results possibly manipulated
Door Daan de Wit
Exit polls are usually known for their accuracy and are therefore also used to indicate the value of the results. Exit polls have been used to verify the integrity of elections in the Ukraine, in Latin America, in Germany and elsewhere. Yet in November 2004, the U.S. exit poll discrepancy was much more than normal exit poll error (and similar to that of the invalid election). In the U.S. the difference amounted to between 5.5% and 6.5%. 'Either something was wrong with the exit polling, or something was wrong with the vote count'. Conducting exit polls is a near-science, but voting is definitely not: there were more than 28,000 problems that were made note of in the last American elections. Besides that there were another 400,000 reports made on a phone line.

The whole story is too little, too late. It doesn't matter anymore and it makes no sense to worry about it.
Last month Noam Chomsky wrote: 'Why don't people care if the election is stolen? The reason is that they don?t take the election seriously in the first place?. Nevertheless DeepJournal will keep reporting on this problem in order to contribute to the prevention of it.
