I was reading CNN today and thier poll is :
Are you pleased with the outcome of the presidential election?
Now, I know that these numbers can't / don't speak for all of america, but how can President Bush get the most votes and win, but the higher % of people are not pleased with the turnout ?

I'm still left wondering about Diebold....
My county came out with Bush on top...and I'm wondering how.
There were about 10 Kerry lawn signs for each Bush sign, reflecting a large margin of Kerry vs. Bush support.
Almost NOBODY I know or am aquainted with (even some of the staunch Republicans) voted for Bush....and I hear the same from friends and family.
Likewise, everyone at the precinct, during voting seemed to be pro Kerry. In fact, I can't even recall but one vocalizing a pro-Bush stance. Almost every person in line had a Kerry sticker worn proudly.
Regardless of who did or didn't win the presidency, the idea that our whole voting process may be a farce, and that with the help of Diebold, the country is already out of our hands, is a terrifying prospect indeed. I seriously hope this is not the case, but my questions keep gnawing on the back of my brain....

Seems to me that polls are made for all to use/utilize, whereas, voting is set up for those who can register or are registered to vote.
Those numbers don't surprise me at all....though...I do wonder at the amount of those 15811 were kids or people who could not vote. (?)
Also, considering how miserably the exit pollings performed, I have serious reservations about this poll or any of its nature and type.
