2. The lawsuit being filed by some sanders supporters thinks that exit polls are golden

That lawsuit is so very very stupid. The Sanders supporters are filing really crap lawsuits and then get irked when the courts throw these cases out.

3. It is not difficult to prove that exit polls are not accurate.

Data flies in the face to what I call the urban legend of their infallibility. I heard that golden status quoted here and elsewhere for a long time. There is lot os evidence that they are not as accurate as counting the votes.
