One more reason not to look for exit poll information, if you needed one.

Even if you find some numbers, they are likely to disagree with other numbers you find. So ignore them all!

Drudge and Huffington Post both say they show Obama up by 15 in Pennsylvania.

Gawker says they show Obama up by only 4 in PA.

Who the hell knows?! Wait for the actual results or at least numbers from a more official source like a TV network that is actually privy to the full set of numbers and knows how they were weighted, etc…

  1. VA????? Is killing me.

  2. CBS is very careful in “calling” states. Even so, Pennsylvania and Ohio are now in Obama’s column. VA has still not totalled its votes in Arlington, i.e., the Democratic north! Someone called VA ” Ground Zero” today. They had a lot negativity so that George Mason Univ. called in the FBI about an e-mail message by a hacker pretending to be a democrat (some say the Provost!) to the students. I would not be surprised if VA would have to have a recount. Although I hope it won’t be that close overall. Stan Greenberg said “I never was less worried.”
    That’s how it looks from here.

  3. There’s no reason that exit polls can’t be tamed, understood and used. But the organization that runs them doesn’t seem to be the one to do it.
