We gave it a B+

Why was there such an unprecedented disparity between the exit polls in the 2004 presidential election (which had Kerry over Bush by 51 to 48 percent) and the race’s ultimate tally (in which those numbers were flipped)? That’s the key question posed by this tersely sobering documentary. Its provocative thesis is that the age of electronic voting machines has actually made election fraud easier. If that sounds like a conspiracy theory, it is. But Stealing America: Vote by Vote mounts its case with hardheaded numerical logic. The result will leave you wondering if we’re in for a fresh recount disaster this fall. B+
