24. yeah, the CA exit poll was comparatively tiny
They did exit poll interviews in 35 precincts. The archived data have 1541 complete questionnaires from those precincts, so the total N may have been something like 2500 (it's hard to tell) -- plus 858 phone interviews of convenience voters. Say 3500 tops.

Over 12 million people voted in California, so I assume the 1% manual tally counted something over 120,000 ballots. Unfortunately, Debra Bowen hadn't started cleaning up the state yet, so there's no easy way to get all the results -- but I haven't heard of any huge discrepancies.
