Best of luck arguing with TIA, and I mean that seriously. Many of us here have been trying ever since the election to convince TIA that you cannot simply assume that the exit poll sample is a perfectly random representation of the total voting population. Despite months of trying and hundreds of posts, we failed. Best of luck though, because it seems to me that if we could just get TIA to acknowledge a few fairly simple statistical principles s/he would be a powerful and passionate ally in determining what really happened in this election. Cheers.

FYI, there probably won't be a response to this because I'm on TIA's ignore list.
