17. well, there you go: unsupported dogma
Yes, the Final Exit Poll was wrong; it was matched to the recorded vote count.
No, the unadjusted exit poll was correct (as were the adjusted Best GEO and Composite at 12:40am)

How do you know that the unadjusted exit poll was correct?

Let's rewind:

Based on ALL the evidence accumulated, statistical and anecdotal, do you believe that Bush won the 2004 election fairly?
If the answer is YES, please state why you have come to this conclusion.
If the answer is NO, then you must also agree that the unadjusted and preliminary state AND national exit polls were essentially correct, since they indicated that Kerry won by 3-5%.

That's ridiculous. There is no reason why someone has to believe either that Bush won fairly or that the exit polls were "essentially correct." If you have a reason why you believe it, bring it on, but please don't be silly. We've had enough exit poll silly around here.
