I am afraid of exit poles

Remember what happened 2004 with John Kerry? All the poles showed a win then suddenly 11:00PM Bush was ahead . I was devastated.

4. No worries

Obama campaign reminds us that the exit polls due at 7:30 won't reflect the MANY early votes. Unskew the exit polls! @barackobama #election

5. I don't worry about the poles; they're in poland.

Exit polls should be taken with a grain of salt because they don't reflect early voting.

They're soooo big and cast such huge (hugh) shadows.

18. Sorry about the spelling, Nerves,

Just wanted to say I am half Polish on my mothers side. Can I use that for an excuse for my bad spelling?
