Simon & Freeman: The Future of Exit Polling. TUES 29th 8:00pm EST / 5:00pm PST. Election Defense Radio

On Election Defense Radio this evening, Tues. Jan. 29, at 8:00 - 9:00 pm Eastern / 5:00 - 6:00 pm Pacific,

Jonathan Simon and Steven Freeman will be discussing exit polling as a tool to assess the validity of purported electronic election results.

To "tune in" via the Internet, go to http://www.toginet.com and click on either of the two Audio Players (Flash or Windows Media) you will see in the upper right corner.

Co-hosts Andi Novick and Dan Ashby will be asking the experts to explain what "raw" "weighted" and "adjusted" exit polls mean,

how "stratification" is used to draw demogragraphic portraits, and how "intrinsic yardsticks" such as presidential approval ratings and prior year election results

can tell us whether an exit polling sample is valid or biased in one direction or another.

Call in with your questions too, at 877- 864 - 4869

We'll also be asking why the 40-year tradition of exit polls with predictive accuracy to within 1% has seemingly gone awry of late,

but only in the U.S. and only since the mass transition to computerized voting.

Finally, and most importantly, we will ask, can citizens carry out independent exit polls (or develop alternative methods) to assess for ourselves the truthfulness

of "official" election results reported by proprietary voting machines that keep the raw vote data secret,

and "official" exit poll results reported by a big media consortium that keeps the raw polling data secret?

To "tune in" via the Internet, go to http://www.toginet.com and click on either of the two Audio Players (Flash or Windows Media) you will see in the upper right corner.
