Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,

The focus on the
U.S. elections seems to be growing more intense. The many unanswered questions have attracted increasing interest both in America and abroad.

Below are two pieces which will bring readers up to date on well-informed perceptions of the Crisis of Democracy in the
United States. Item A. is the preliminary report from the Ralph Nader group who are auditing the election returns in New Hampshire. Item B., forwarded to us by NYU Professor of Politics, Bertell Ollman, is a brief scientific analysis of the irregularities between exit polls and the actual ballot counts in key states.

This second study lends additional weight to apprehensions that electoral fraud actually took place again in 2004, and in a big way!

The Ralph Nader campaign

Dear Francis,
Message from New Hampshire

Thank you for your
continued support.

Hello, this is Michael Richardson with the Nader campaign.

I'm here in
Concord, New Hampshire at the Legislative Office Building, right outside the State Capital.  We're in the middle of the official recount of the Presidential Election.  We have about ten Nader volunteers scattered among the Bush and Kerry representatives and several dozen election officials gathered around. Ballot boxes are being opened, ballots are being counted, and preliminary results look like the New Hampshire results are fairly accurate, which is good for the system. 

The recount goes on as well as Ralph Nader's crusade for the American public.

Hi Francis -

Of all the pieces I've seen on the election this is the most compelling.

It is a readable, but serious academic study. Well worth the time to read the 11 pages.

This is a very scholarly - but readable & clear - academic study of all the exit polls, by Steven Freeman of U of Penn. It's substance makes it all the more disturbing.
