6. Thank you. Excellent analysis and very easy to read/understand for us non-statisticians.

In answer to your last question: "Why doesnít Silver even mention these substantial advantages of exit polls over pre-election polls? Could it be that itís because he makes his living by doing pre-election polls?" Do you think there is more to it than this, i.e. that he is providing "cover" for his preferred candidate? It seems he has made some mistakes this year in other areas.

PS I worked in public health in NC for 16 years. Nice to see you are continuing to use your skills for the public good in retirement!
