Beware GOP poll mischief.

Gail Boyd, a longtime FOP member, had her letter published in the Waco Tribune-Herald on October 14, 2006:

"In November 2004, the Bush administration sent a team to the Ukraine to monitor the presidential election by recording the exit polls.
This strategy was chosen as a certain indicator of accurate election results, because historically these polls have been over 99 percent accurate.
Yet the same month, as exit polls showed that John Kerry not only won the 2004 election but did so by a significant margin, our government-controlled media pundits, noting the wild discrepancy between the exit polls and the news that Bush had won, could only ask, "How did the exit polls, for the first time in their history, get it so wrong?"
Substantial studies of the irregularities in Ohio and other key states have shown that the exit polls in 2004, as in previous years, were amazingly correct.
The question that looms next month is, given the fact that every major poll in the nation shows the Democrats significantly ahead, if the exit polls again reflect a Democratic win but the GOP manages to pull off another "miraculous" win, will the corporate media again abjure their responsibility to report the evidence that our democratic process was sabotaged?
Or will they ask the right questions this time?"
