15. can't really explain it
The interviewers are given a sampling interval to try for 100 interviews per precinct; NY precincts generally aren't too small for that. The survey was fielded in fewer precincts than in swing states, but that in itself doesn't explain the results.

Again, I certainly agree with RHP that the levers didn't cause the exit poll discrepancy. I don't think Kerry won New York by 31 points.
