14. As the "official" results grow more suspect, exit polls need to be discredited.


I can remember, not too many years ago, when exit polls were considered so accurate that it was considered unprofessional to even talk about them before the polls closed! Because the margin of error on them is like +/-0.2%. That's right - way more accurate than the pile-of-crap, paid-for-by-SuperPAC polls that Nate Silver yammers on about obsessively for weeks on end.
