What happened?

      According to reports just before the French referendum on the EU constitution, a lot of people hadn't made up their minds:
In a mid-April Harris poll in which a full 33% of likely voters were undecided.

      But of those who were decided:
the “nos” were reported as winning by 53% to 47%: but actually 36% intended to vote no, 31% to vote yes.

      Other sources agreed that it was still a tossup::
Recent opinion polls show opponents of the constitution with a slight lead in France, but when the margin of error and the number of undecided voters are taken into account, the race is a virtual dead heat.

undecided voters -- estimated at about one in five
.
      And then the polls closed, and it turned out the "undecided" were exactly in agreement with the decided: 45% yes, 55% no.  Anybody have any thoughts on that amazing coincidence?

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
