10. They are not used in this country for that purpose

Our country's election system has been rated 47th out of the 47 long established democracies in the world -- that means that it is very susceptible to election fraud. So the fact that they are not used in this country to monitor elections does not mean that they SHOULD NOT be.

And yes, we are frequently told by our corporate news media that exit polls are useless. That is because it is almost always the more conservative candidate who benefits from election fraud, and exit polls have the potential to serve as warning flags for election fraud. They don't want that. You must know that our national news media will do whatever it can to prevent Bernie or anyone else with a similar agenda from getting into a high position of power.
