18. I "would"...
start getting very suspicious of the election results if leading Democrats started making concrete accusations. I would become convinced (as would the majority of the population) if they started producing hard evidence.

I doubt the exit poll methodology will ever be released. Polls are very accurate IF the sampling is totally random and participation is uniform. Neither was remotely true in this case. IMO, if they released the workings of the whole process we would find there is at least as much art (guessing) as there is science involved in correcting the raw numbers.

So what if hard evidence proves the polls were right? Without an explanation of HOW the pollsters did it, my opinion would be that even a blind squirrel finds an acorn from time to time. :D
