2. Sounds like they are refuting their own table..
Edited on Fri Apr-15-05 11:13 AM by TruthIsAll
"The margin of error for a 95% confidence interval is about +/- 3% for a typical characteristic from the national exit poll and +/-4% for a typical state exit poll".

That is true for a typical National pre-election poll of 1000 respondents and pre-election state poll of 600 respondents. Just check Zogby, ARG, Gallup etc.

The National Exit Poll had 13047.
The state exit polls for battleground states ranged from 1500-2862 (FL). It was 1963 for OH.

Aren't exit polls supposed to be more accurate than pr-election telephone polls?
