STATISTICS AND EXIT POLLING WORKS!!
As though American’s plates are not full enough, the power and evil powers in this Administration has managed to pull of another coupe’.We all remember in Election 2000 when the “Exit Polls” were not at times consistent with the official political out of the winners. Dan Rather, who is a giant in investigative Reporting has not forgotten how embraced he and CBS were when they rightfully used the exit polling to predict the winners of the Presidency in Florida only to find that the final out come was the victim of vote tampering which gave the state to Bush.We should rightfully conclude that the mathematics of “Statistics” is more or less universal and essentially irrefutable. The NASA scientist and all the graduates from all the Universities in the known world use it in their indicators in determining the validity of their scientific work. But low and behold in 2000, powerful politicians in the face of the “Exit Polling” which statistically predicted that Gore won Florida turned against the science of statistic. And in addition, managed to convince Americans that mathematics is not a basic science!!Put Simply, in asking real American voters/ who they voted for gave Gore the nod, however, Republicans or their operatives had taken their votes and deliberately discarded so many votes that the exit polls were not then the reflection of the voters just polled. To top it all off, our trusted leaders and media people along with some of our scientific community choose to attack the statistical method instead of the obvious fraud the Exit Polls had just exposed! This is even a blow to all the Los Vegas Gambling Casino owners, who know the accuracy of “Card Counting” which is a simple statistical method used by very smart players to beat the house. These Casino owners will have you thrown out of the house when they find you, a player using this to break the house. This is further a blow to all the Thesis and Dissertation written using statistical analysis to validate their work.This is a national wrong that must be made right along with the existence of WMD, and the killing of our children in Iraq for oil, and Excesses of Big Business which conduct themselves like ENRON, etc. Yes, statistics is a solid reputable science that can be used in “Exit Polling” not only to predict election outcomes, but also to indicate when fraud has been committed at the voter polling stations!
