Ques. - does the 73,307 total of exit-poll interviews reflect:
1) the "completed responses" only? Or were there more
attempted interviews? I think E/M expects about a 45-55%
not-completed rate.

I believe 73,307 are completed. In fact I seem to recall reading that there were over 100,000 interviews (I could be wrong).

2) the mystery 660 voters added overnight? How could these
be identified? Might it mean an analysis of the last raw data
total interviews by precinct, and see where, if identified in the
"final" poll results, these were "added" (so to speak)?

Beats me. In any case they are irrelevant as far as I am concerned, because they could not have switched the 51-48 Kerry lead among the first 13047 to a Bush win of 51-48. That was impossible.

Draw your own conclusions.
