Description - Was The 2004 Presidential Election Stolen? by Joel Bleifuss
An award-winning statistician and a celebrated journalist investigate the 2004 American presidential elections results. On the afternoon of Election Day 2004, the world was abuzz with the news: exit polls indicated that John Kerry would win the election and become the next president of the United States. That proved not to be the case. According to the official count, Bush beat Kerry by a margin of three millions votes. The exit polls, however, had predicted a margin of victory for Kerry of five million votes. In every "battleground" state across the US the final tally swung clearly beyond the exit polls' margin of error to favour George W. Bush. How can one explain this eight million vote discrepancy between the Election Day exit polls and the official count? Freeman and Bleifuss analyse the exit poll data and look at documented examples of conventional vote suppression and outright vote fraud. They investigate the possibility that enough election fraud occurred to determine the outcome of the presidential race. And they ask why neither the government, nor the Democratic Party, nor any major media organisation did their own investigation.
