THREAD: no final victory, no final defeat.

There has never been such an all pervasive, coordinated, underhand operation to rig an election as occurred with #GE19
The huge strides achieved by Corbyn since he began Labour's long overdue journey back to the left must continue. 1/
It is quite phenomenal that he's achieved so much, with that cloud of arrows blocking out the sun, many from his own inherited set of Blairite charlatans. Thru wave after wave of despicable sabotage he stood strong. They questioned his mettle, he never, ever stumbled. Granite. 2/
What made this happen was not the antisemitism smears concocted by Israeli assets like Shai Masot, nor the hack journo stream of bullshit about IRA support, or faking train problems or not liking poppies enough, all of that could've been surpassed. It was PV wot done it. 3/

#AskGregAQuestion: I was purged — how do we fight back? How important are Exit Polls? What about #VoterSuppression in Ohio? Why won’t the Dems go after Crosscheck?…
#AskGregAQuestion: Has #RonDeSantis and his GOP Legislature derailed the #Amendment4 that Floridians enacted?… #Florida

I don't trust polls, they're not that accurate if they are before an election because the pollsters have to figure out if you're going to vote or not. The polls that really count are the #ExitPolls—and in #Wisconsin, #Pennsylvania & #Michigan, #HillaryClinton won the exit polls.
So what happened in #Wisconsin if you had a 4% victory in the #ExitPolls? How did Trump win? The answer is, you tell an exit pollster how you voted, but you don't know if your vote was counted.…
You don't know if the machine kicked out your vote. You don't know that if you filled out a #ProvisionalBallot and it was disqualified.

Requiem for the EVM

What is the position
of the opposition?
"It seems we have lost
But must at any cost
Find some justification

But what could it be
That would with authority
Scrub out our losses
yet please our bosses
And run off with impunity?"

Eureka one said
As he sprang out of bed
This idea's a gem
let's trash the EVM
And cast doubt on the EC instead

So off the cabal went
to make in democracy a dent
They drove in their fancy cars
But emerged in crushed kurtas
To make a straight tale bent

And of course the pliable
And the old reliable
Took their clarion call
From studio to town hall
To prove the EVMs were fallible

And here on twitter
The usual folk were aflutter
"Institutions compromised!"
"Idea of India revised!"
Dragging their souls through the gutter

If the #ExitPolls are giving 300+ to NDA, I believe the numbers will be much higher - probably in the range of 330-350 seats, with the BJP crossing its 2014 tally. Even if they turn out to be wrong and BJP gets just 200 seats, it will still be a remarkable feat for PM Modi. 1/n
He will have returned to power, despite a disastrous economic performance. Under him, all the traditional measures of an economy have done badly - employment, manufacturing growth, credit offtake, capital formation, profit growth, etc. There's also been visible farm distress 2/n
Then, why are India's poor still voting for him? It is because, the traditional gauges of economic performance have very little meaning in the life of a poor person. An enabling economic environment, which lets everyone compete equally is of no use to them. 3/n

मीडियारण्य में एक बार ऋषि पोलक अपने अट्ठासी हज़ार पोलस्टर शिष्यों के साथ एग्जिट-पोल नामक महायज्ञ कर रहे थे| तब एक जिज्ञासु शिष्य ने पोलक ऋषि से प्रश्न किया, हे ऋषि श्रेष्ठ -
यह पोल क्या है और यह किस प्रकार किया जाता है?
पोल के क्या भेद हैं?
पोल किसे करना चाहिए और पोल करने से क्या लाभ होता है?
पोल को करने की शास्त्रोक्त विधि क्या है और इसे कब किया जा सकता है?
ऋषि पोलक प्रश्न सुनकर अत्यंत प्रसन्न हुए और बोले - हे जिज्ञासु आपने यह उत्तम प्रश्न किया है अतः अब मैं पोल की कथा विस्तारपूर्वक कहता हूँ ।
एक बार भगवन सत्ताधीश अपने आसन पर सुखपूर्वक विराजमान थे । सरकारी तंत्र और परियोजनाओं के कमीशन से उत्पन्न लक्ष्मी उनकी चरण सेवा कर रही थी ।
सेवकादि फलेक्षु उनका स्तुतिगान कर रहे थे । कोमल आसान और सेवा से प्रसन्न सत्ताधीश भोगनिद्रा में मग्न थे ।

Why did Election Commission share secret EVM code with Microchip & Renesas. Why cant BEL & ECIL 'fuse' it onto microcontrollers in their own premises in a secure manner or get it done anywhere in India? Why do this in a foreign country - USA & Japan?…
Heres the new 'tamper-proof' Electronic Voting Machines 'Mark-3' launched by GoI to be used at 1800 centres in Karnataka elections for trial & entirely during 2019. Interestingly still the EVM code suppossed to be secret was fused by American Microchip & Japanese Ranesas?
#EVMs like all other machines, are prone to errors and malfunctioning. No machine ever made anywhere in the world is infallible. Machines are also prone to manipulations. Indian electronic voting machines are no exception.

Bon on débute le #livetweet de l'élection sénatoriale partielle d'#Alabama avec 1 rappel usuel pour mes followers: si les sondages sortie des urnes (#exitpolls)étaient 1 outil prédictif, Gore et Kerry auraient été présidents US.Bref,pour…
2)On peut d'ailleurs s'étonner que @CNN renouvelle l'expérience"#exitpolls" sur cette sénatoriale partielle d'#Alabama alors que certains médias ne cessent de les remettre en…
3) Plutôt que de gloser sur les exitpolls, rappelons les"intangibles" de l'élection comme on dit aux #EtatsUnis. L'#Alabama n'a pas élu 1 sénateur démocrate depuis 1992(en fait depuis 1990, car en 1992 c'était Shelby l'autre sénateur actuel, passé républicain en 1994 qui fut élu)
