27. In 2010 the electorate was even betwe D and R

As it was in 2004, when the Bush team had an excellent turnout operation.

2008 was +7 (D). That is not likely again.

There has never been a +3 (R) electorate in the history of exit polling, at least in presidential elections.

I think a +2 or +3 (D) is probably more likely. Yes Obama has lost some ground; that is not in dispute. But that would only be an accurate poll if that was what the electorate looked like.
