Obama had a 56.2% recorded share in Wisconsin . But the popular progressive Sen. Russ Feingold lost by 5% in a traditionally progressive state.
Obama had a 61.9% recorded share in Illinois. But the progressive Democrat Giannoulias lost by 2% . He led the Registered Voter (RV) polls by 42-38 and the Likely Voter ( LV ) polls by 43-42. Was the loss due to unverifiable DREs and rigged central tabulators that miscounted the optiscan ballots?
Obama had a 54.5% recorded share in Pennsylvania . The progressive Democrat Sestak lost by 2% He led the RV polls by 47-43 and trailed the LV polls by 49-45 . He led the exit poll at 10:15pm but fell behind at 117am as the poll was being matched to the vote with no change in respondents. Was the loss due to unverifiable DREs and rigged central tabulators that miscounted the optiscan ballots?
In 2008 , Oregon voted 56.7% for Obama , matching the National True Vote Model. As a battleground state, Oregon should be representative of the national electorate. The 2010 Oregon senate race was never in question. Senator Ron Wyden led by a steady 20% in pre-election Likely Voter (LV) polls. He won with a 57% recorded share, matching Obama's 2008 Oregon share. H ow does one explain Feingold's 5% loss and Wyden's 20% win? Was it because Wyden was a popular incumbent? Or w as it due to unverifiable touch screens (DRE) and/or the central tabulators that miscounted the optiscan ballots?
Each of these battleground states shifted to the GOP and Wyden won Oregon in a landslide. How did they differ from Oregon? Was it because Oregon's recorded vote reflected the true intent of the voters? Was it due to the fact that Oregon is a 100% paper ballot state? Was it due to the fact that Oregon mandates hand-counts of randomly selected counties -- a clear deterrent to election fraud? Oregon was the only battleground state in which Kerry's vote share exceeded Gore's 2000 share. Since the 2000 election, Oregon's recorded vote share has consistently matched pre-election polls and the unadjusted national exit polls. Is this unique track record due to the fact that only Oregon mandates hand counts of optically scanned ballots in randomly selected counties? The historical evidence strongly suggests that Oregon's random hand-counts are a deterrent to Election Fraud.
Table 1 is a comparison of the Wisconsin, Pensylvania and Illinois Final Exit Polls (i.e. recorded vote) and the True Vote Model. Note that all Final Exit Poll demographics understated the Democratic share as they were forced to match the recorded vote.
These are the key results:
