...poll should predict. If someone did vote in 2000 but did not vote in this year's election, that statistic would not apply. This is a good predictor as long as the numbers are accuracy from the exit poll. I have looked for statistics which describe what these say. The numbers are now projective, but because they are based on a sample, the margin of error has to be factored in.
