French Election Rigged!
Nicolas Sarkozy (whom are French intelligence sources have referred to a the "little French Hitler") will govern France with the help of two Silvio Berlusconi- and Rupert Murdoch-like billionaire neo-con French media moguls, Martin Bouygues and Arnaud Lagardere.
The French election, from the start, has been plagued by election fraud -- bogus polling data, false exit polls, and electronic voting machine and machine counting irregularities were hallmarks of the first presidential election round. ES&S's I-Votronic machines were used in both elections across France. Only Sarkozy's party was supportive of the machines, with all the other political parties calling for a moratorium on their use. Turnout in the French election was 85 percent. With large turnouts historically favoring the left in France, the exit polling and actual polling were at odds with the turnout -- an indication of massive election fraud.
The electoral malfeasance of neo-cons in manipulating elections in France, Britain, Canada, the United States, Italy, Australia, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, and other countries will remain a problem until the people, acting through the power of progressive, anti-globalist, and anti-capitalist governments, seize control, via whatever means necessary, of the media, the voting and vote counting process, and the opinion polling mechanisms.
'Ya think? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw. If a Liberal loses, why, the election must have been rigged!
"Massive election fraud." Two Word Response: PROVE IT.
"With large turnouts historically favoring the left in France, the exit polling and actual polling were at odds with the turnout -- an indication of massive election fraud."
If the actual and the exit polling don't match why do we always question the actual polling? And if they did not match in the other direction would the socialists want to re-count?
Like surveys about peoples' sex lives, people - as is human nature - is oftentimes not to tell the
truth to pollers.
Two recent examples of this come to mind. The Recall Referendum in 2004 in Venezuela to oust Hugo
Chavez as their president. Polls showed that a "majority" wanted him removed, yet the result of the
referendum was to not recall Chávez. Remeber who we're dealing with here - a dictator, not a
president elected by a majority of the popular vote. This is likely of a rigged election, no matter
what Jimmy Carter's Center For Democracy claimed as a "certified" election. My information for
this, by the way, comes from: http://www.answers.com/topic/venezuelan-recall-referendum-2004
The other interesting case involving exit polling is the UK's 1992 election where exit and opinion
polling pretty much solidly predicted a "hung parliament".
What happened in the UK though, was "election resulted in a Conservative overall majority of 21, it
has been theorized that their victory could have been decided by only 1,241 votes distributed
between the 11 seats with the smallest Conservative majorities."
(I'm in no way using Wiki as the "know-it-all" so please don't assume that. Wiki is a good source
for info, but since its information and data can be edited by anyone, info from Wiki should always
be verified by a second and even third source).
One also has to consider the polling organizations themselves, just as some people easily dismiss a
poll conducted by, say the Washington Post/Gallup compared to a poll say, by FOX News/The Wall
Getting back to what people tell pollsters - I may be a cynic here, but I think human instinct is
to tell pollsters either what they think the pollsters want to hear or to tell the pollsters the
exact opposite of what they think they want to hear, just to toy with them.
If anyone else wants to join in on this topic of exit polling, by all means jump on in.
What's wrong with you?!? (sarcasm)
