Is anyone "exit polling" the Iraq election?
Since that's how elections are decided everywhere but in the U.S., I imagine someone will be doing it, unless if it's too dangerous?

2. Yes, but the ones I've seen had AK-47's and RPG's.

3. The vote count will be phony
I suppose there will be phony exit polls to match. Look for "voters" to laud Bush in the "exit polls".

5. If you are still alive,
you get to exit!

I don't know if we can believe ANYTHING that is reported by the US Government about this election, and I don't think there is ANY independent agency operating inside Iraq.

MotherJones has a reporter outside the green zone who was interviewed on AAR(?) yesterday who will be attempting to visit as many of the polling places and interview as many of the voters as possible. But his report will be far from scientific.

Does anyone know if any of the local Baghdad blogs are still up?
