WHY THE PROP 37 VOTE-COUNT IS TOO PERFECT
by Jon Rappoport

Late yesterday afternoon, I consulted a map of California counties on the secretary of state’s website. You can see it here:
This page has a summary of the Prop 37 vote-count so far.
This is an ongoing figure, because the state of California is still counting votes.
In the box, you’ll see YES on 37 has 5,329,994 votes. NO on 37 has 5,869,382 votes.
YES on 37 has 47.6% of the vote, while NO has 52.4%.
This is vitally important. Why? Because when the networks called the election early, on election night, a couple of hours after the polls closed, this was almost exactly the percentage breakdown they claimed existed then.
It’s no different from the vote percentages now: less than one percentage point.
Eleven days later, as millions more votes have been counted, and are being counted, these election-night percentages are still holding firm.
What are the odds of that happening?
Any sane person would demand to know how these percentage splits are being manipulated, created, invented.
We are led to believe the projections offered by networks on election night are astonishingly accurate, but this is a fairy tale.
It’s especially a fairy tale when, eleven days after Election Tuesday, when millions more votes have been counted, the percentage-splits don’t budge.
We know next to nothing about the people who actually make these early projections on election night. That is troubling. They are shaping the perception of the American people, and we don’t know how they operate.
We can say, yes, they work for Edison Media Research or the Associated Press, and they hand out early-call projections to media outlets, but beyond that, we have few clues.
Yet, as soon as the networks make their calls on who has won an election, everyone folds up his tent and walks away. It’s as if a magic wand has been waved, and everyone obeys.
These “projection gurus” do some exit polls and, poof, they predict winners. They pick the moment when they’re going to put the word out to media outlets: “it’s time to say Prop 37 lost.”
And then it’s over.
And then 11 days later, the percentage splits that existed when the media made the call, on election night, are virtually the same.
Only a fool drinks that Kool-Aid.
It’s as if these projection gurus were watching horses coming out of the gate in the Kentucky Derby. A hundred yards down the track they call the winner. Not only are they right, but their horse had a two-length lead at a hundred yards and the same two-length lead as he crossed the wire at the finish.
When are people going to give up their religious belief in the sanctity of elections? Are they afraid that, if they leave that church, they’re going to Hell?
Let’s rework PT Barnum’s famous dictum: “There are 300 million suckers born every election night.”
