Clearly jerome and kos are not best of friends. But i sort of agree with jerome here, R2k was a bit too volatile (like Zogby) in the final stretch. I think that was probably because a) their sample size was small and b) this was their first national tracking poll.
On the other hand, their state races were okay (except of course Alaska).
Simply because Coleman has challenged more votes than Franken
(around 20 more). It seems from what I understand is that if all the challenged votes are counted as the canvassing board thinks they ought to; then Franken wil gain those 20 votes.
machines undercounting Franken's vote was just ridiculous. They claimed that they expected it and that in fact those undervotes were lower than they had first expected. Which means that they suspected that the original count was wrong. Then why did he declare victoty?
