186. Voter News Service existed in 2000 and did exit polling.
I remember just before they "uncalled" FL for Gore, someone did a cutaway piece to the VNS guy watching the tallies come in for FL.

This is kind of ineresting so bear with me a minute. He said he was concerned because about 20,000 votes were going to be missing for Gore in Palm Beach County. He had a little screen with what looked like a satelite picture of FL and he circled the Palm Beach area with a teleprompter. Then he said there was also a serious problem in Duval County (up near Jacksonville) where more thousands of Gore votes were going to be missing.

Yup, he was dead nuts right on the money. In one precinct in Duval County, one of every five voters voted for two people for President. And the spoiled ballots in Palm Beach were legendary. (The precinct in Duval was African American.)
