I spent little time on any of the Ohio initiatives except the one on gerrymandering. As I read them in the booth, none sounded good or compelling, nor do I remember them as this conspiracy theorist describes them. Thus I voted no to all of them (including the gerrymandering one, it was not understandable).
As I never saw a mail in poll, I was not represented on the "no" list.
How about an easier conspiracy then the "Christian Right" (booga booga) somehow tampering with my PAPER vote in the millions. Could organized labor and the Dispatch send the poll questions to their selected folks to try to create a groundswell?
Part of this comes to psychology. "Smart" people believe that Bush is (add expletive here). There are many smart people. Anyone who doesn't believe (expletive) must be dumb. There aren't that many dumb people. Ergo, if Bush wins, it must be cheating. Add any other "obvious" thing that needs to be supported and you have people who would rather deny the process then come to grips with the fact that "their" project isn't popular.

There are as many dumb people as there are smart people. And there are more average people then anything else. Its impossible to claim that there are more dumb people then smart people because those are just ad hoc names for people in certain intelligence ranges.

I think they are labels to mean "how much do you agree with me"?
