I still don't get the obsession with the exit polls. Polls are wrong all the time. (especially in this case since Kerry voters were told to seek out the pollsters.)

Every poll comes with a margin of error. A poll where the results are intentionally being skewed has a larger one. I fail to see why those polls being wrong is evidence the actual vote count was in error.

Occam's Razor, people.

Here's a theory; exit polls are inherently skewed towards Dems, since GOPers are in a hurry to get back to work after voting, and don't have time to answer a bunch of questions. Dems, on the other hand, either don't have jobs to get back to or are in featherbed union jobs where it doesn't matter if they go back to work or not.

It is shown that the opposite is true, G., GOPers are more likely to answer the poll.
