So again the leaked early exit polls were way off the mark. And again I was scouring the internet looking for them, even as I was telling myself that they were wrong in NH, wrong in MA, wrong in NJ, wrong all over the place, and didn’t really mean a thing. At least I wasn’t the only idiot who wanted to see them — the chart to the right shows traffic to this blog over the past six days. The chart below shows the google searches that delivered that (still negligible) traffic. Imagine if I’d written about Scarlett Johansson instead of exit polls — no wonder journalism is suffering, now that success is measured by page views and “most-emailed” rankings.
