38. Perhaps I'm just playing Devil's Advocate here, but...
I'm no statistician, I'm a designer by trade, so forgive me if I'm not even looking on the same page here,
But isn't there a case to be made that these findings might actually support the notion that there was something wrong with the way the exit polling was done earlier in the day (the men/women ratio thing)?
That it was then corrected later in the night and in the remaining time zones to adjust for the fact that they were weighted?
If I'm horribly wrong here, I appologize, but to me this sounds like a case of Ackham's razor...
