22. I'm sorry, but
I don't understand how an exit poll that doesn't include many of the 9-5 workers (who hadn't made it to the polls yet at 4pm), is considered "accurate". I went to vote around 11am (my work hours are flexible). I ran into several people who, because I live in a relatively small town and know these people well, I know were voting for Kerry. I didn't see one who I knew would be voting for *. My wife went to vote after 6. I asked her who was there, and most of * voters that I knew were there at that time. I know this in not evidence of anything, but my point is that at certain times of day, certain types of voters are more likely to be there. To take an exit poll from a certain time of day, and exclude any groups that haven't been fully "represented" yet, IMHO is just using incomplete data to try to make a point. I don't think this is the "TRUE FRAUD-FREE ELECTION RESULT". You can believe whatever you want.
