36. Population Data
I got the census data from this site. It does not give a breakdown by precinct, just by city or town. At least for suburban precincts, this should be sufficient because there shouldn't be too much fluctuation between precincts in suburban compared to urban areas. /

I think it is Evendale C mostly because Evendale D is a smaller precinct (384 registered voters) than Evendale C (522 registered voters). Also note that the 52 people surveyed in the exit poll is exactly 10% of the registered voters for that precinct.

If this 10% rule is true, then this can be another key to finding the right precinct and would explain why certain exit poll precincts have much fewer respondents. For example, exit poll precinct 57 has 28 respondents. Perhaps, that precinct will have only 275 - 300 registered voters. We'll see.
