10. Don't forget:
The way CNN modified the exit poll information throughout the day. We still don't have the raw data. I went to bed election night with the exit poll showing Kerry ahead, but he was behind in the tally. In the morning the exit poll numbers were reversed to show a Bush win, but the numbers were screwed up. The still would have resulted in a Kerry win. CNN made another ":adjustment" around 10AM to correct this. If exit polling is done, we still need some way to verify that the numbers were not "massaged" as CNN was doing.
