Et tu, Al Gore?

Updated: Jan. 27, 2012

Et tu, Al Gore?

Watching The Young Turks covering the NH primary last night on Al Gore’s Current TV, I was struck by the comments made by Gore and Jennifer Granholm. Cenk, who appears to be one honest, smart reporter dedicated to the truth, brought up the topic of exit polls. Gore and Granholm immediately reverted to the media canard that they are not to be trusted.

Al Gore KNOWS he won in 2000 and that the exit polls indicated just that in Florida until 16,000 votes were DEDUCTED from Gore’s total in Volusia county. At that point, Fox News called Florida for Bush and the other networks immediately did likewise. Al Gore KNOWS that exit polls are very accurate; his comment was a real letdown to this analyst who has always been a fan.

For Gore and Granholm to dismiss the “unreliable” exit polls, they would also have to dismiss the following 2000 election facts.

1988-2008 state and national unadjusted exit polls and recorded votes

Gore beat Bush by 540,000 recorded votes(48.4-47.9%). But he won the aggregate unadjusted state exit polls (56,000 respondents) by 50.8-44.5% – a 6 million vote margin. The True Vote Model had Gore by 51.5-44.7%. The Supreme Court awarded the election to Bush (271-267 EV).

Twelve states flipped from Gore in the exit poll to Bush in the recorded vote: AL AR AZ CO FL GA MO NC NV TN TX VA. Gore would have won the election if he captured just one of the states. Democracy died in 2000.

Coincidentally, according to the Census, there were nearly 6 million uncounted votes (spoiled, provisional, absentee), of which 75-80% were Gore votes. Therefore, uncounted votes account for approximately one half of the 6 million exit poll discrepancy.

Now consider Florida which Bush “won” by 537 recorded votes. But there were nearly 200,000 spoiled ballots, of which 70% were Gore votes – a combination of underpunched, overpunched and “butterfly” ballots. That’s a net loss to Gore of 80,000 votes right there. But how many TOTAL ballots (spoiled, provisional, absentee, etc.) were never counted?

Investigative reporter Greg Palast calculated that spoiled ballots of African-Americans cost Gore 77,000 votes:

Palast writes:
Here’s how to estimate the effect of spoilage on the election outcome. For fun, let’s take Florida 2000. We know from comparison of census tracts to precincts that 54% of the 179,855 ballots “spoiled” were cast by African-American voters, that is, 97,000 of the total.

Every poll put the Black vote in Florida for Al Gore at over 90%. Reasonably assuming “spoiled” ballots matched the typical racial preferences, Gore lost more than 87,000 votes in the spoilage pile. Less than 10% of the African-American population voted for Mr. Bush, i.e. Bush lost no more than 10,000 votes to spoilage. The net effect: Gore had a plurality of at least 77,000 within the uncounted ballots cast by Black citizens.

OK, then, what about “Non-Black” voters, whose votes made up the remaining 46% of the spoilage pile? Well, frankly, you can ignore these, as these voters split their vote somewhat evenly between Gore and Bush. Sticklers wanting a closer exam would note that Gore probably won a majority of these votes as well. Moreover, the only large group of spoiled votes in a wealthy white county occurred in Palm Beach (due to “butterfly” ballots), a rare, rich white group of strongly Democratic voters.

Gore won the unadjusted Florida exit poll in a landslide 53.4-43.6%. There were 1816 respondents (a 3% margin of error), so there was a 95% probability that Gore’s share was between 50.4% and 56.4% – and a 97.5% probability that his share was at least 50.4%, a 230,000 vote margin. So how do we account for the 230,000 discrepancy from Bush’s 537 recorded vote margin?

Let’s be conservative. We will assume that the uncounted ballots were all spoiled ballots. According to the Census, there were 43,000 Net Uncounted votes (uncounted – stuffed ballots)in Florida.

Since Stuffed ballots is equal to Gross uncounted (200,000 spoiled) less Net uncounted (43,000), there must have been 157,000 stuffed ballots.

Therefore, Gore’s margin was reduced by approximately 80,000 from 200,000 spoiled ballots and another 157,000 from stuffed (presumably Bush) ballots. The 237,000 total is within 7,000 of the 230,000 calculated above. And that is being conservative. Remember, we are assuming that a) Gore’s vote share was 3% lower than his unadjusted 53.4% exit poll share and b) all of the uncounted votes were the result of 200,000 spoiled ballots. We have ignored absentee and provisional ballots – and votes switched or dropped in cyberspace.

President Gore, what is the mission of Current TV? To be truly independent and fact-based, or just another clone of the mainstream media?

Television’s Performance on Election Night 2000: A Report for CNN

My initial reaction is that the report is misleading at best. The authors assume that the Florida exit poll (which showed Gore with a significant lead) was incorrect and the recorded vote counts were accurate. They discourage the use of exit polls, claiming the vote counts should effectively stand by themselves.

It is this type of limited hangout, “conventional wisdom”, unquestioning, see-no-evil reporting, which finds fault with scientific exit polls but not with bogus reported vote counts, that provide cover for not just the 2000 stolen election but all the stolen elections which followed.

For example, there is no mention that 200,000 votes were uncounted, the great majority in Democratic minority districts. However, the authors cite the canard that the “early Gore call” discouraged Florida panhandle voters from coming out. This is unsupported by the facts; they had already voted earlier in the day – and were included in the exit poll.

Stay tuned.

Current TV and Election Truth

Current TV and Election Truth

Richard Charnin (TruthIsAll)
Dec. 7, 2011

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized Russia today for a parliamentary election she said was rigged. She also said that election gains by Islamist parties must not set back Egypt’s push toward democracy.

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-202_162-57337344/clinton-calls-for-russian-poll-fraud-probe/

Hillary talks about Election Fraud in Russia. But we never hear a peep from politicians or the media about systemic election fraud in the U.S. The hypocrisy is overwhelming.

But now Cenk Uygur, a hard-hitting progressive blogger and former MSNBC host, this week introduced his own show, The Young Turks, on Current TV. Cenk has always impressed this observer with his rational, well-delivered commentary. Now he has the chance to step up and expose the facts of systemic U.S. election fraud that have been kept hidden by a totally corrupted corporate media. Cenk and Keith Olbermann are no longer constrained by their corporate masters.

Current TV was founded by Al Gore, the man who was elected president in 2000 but never took office. The election was stolen from the 55 million Americans who voted for him. According to unadjusted state exit polls and the independent True Vote Model, Gore won by 6 million votes. The American public has been hoodwinked by the corporate media into thinking that he won by only 540,000 nationally and that he lost the election in Florida by 537 votes. A mini-landslide was denied by a judicial/political coup in plain sight. The effects of the theft are obvious – just look around.

In 2004 it was John Kerry’s turn. One week after the election, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann (now Current TV’s lead anchor) presented a powerful expose of the nefarious election anomalies in Ohio and Florida. Another election was stolen, this time from the 67 million who voted for John Kerry. Unfortunately, KO never followed up on the massive election fraud. The public was once again hoodwinked by the corporate media into believing that Bush won by 3 million votes. But it was Kerry who was the real winner of a 10 million True Vote landslide.

In 2008, Obama won by 9.5 million votes and had 365 electoral votes. He had a 52.9% RECORDED VOTE SHARE. But the True Vote Model indicates that he had 58% (76-53 million) and 420 electoral votes – exactly matching the aggregate of the UNADJUSTED STATE EXIT POLLS (83,388 respondents). But there is more: The UNADJUSTED NATIONAL EXIT POLL (17836 respondents), a subset of the state polls, indicates that Obama won by a MASSIVE 61-37%. The landslide was denied.

The Election Truth Movement is hopeful that Cenk and Keith will do their job. They need to remind us of the hypocrisy of U.S. politicians and media pundits who criticize election fraud outside the U.S. but never discuss it here. If Current TV won’t break the ice, who will? The last thing we need is for Current to morph into MSNBC Light.
