  •  Data error for MA (1+ / 0-)

    When I talked with David earlier about this, he said that you guys are planning to use the Boston Globe results for Massachusetts, therefore I wanted to point out that they have the wrong result for Halifax, Mass.  It stuck out has being weirdly strongly Romney, which more so than anywhere else in the state or any adjacent town.  That's because the Globe's reporter is missing a digit from Obama's total.  It should be 2065-1930 Romney, not 2065-997:

    Romney: "The buck stops somewhere in the next county..."

    •  Globe also has grossly wrong data for Bellingham (1+ / 0-)

      But they're a split town, so you'll be getting the precinct data anyway.  I would, in general, glance at the 2008 results and look for other absurd shifts.
