119. Can you back up your "position" with more than your opinion?
"My position is the raw exit poll data leaked is incomplete and not usable because of the design of THIS poll."

Any credible sources for this opinion?

"There is no MOE on a subset of the data collected. The MOE numbers are for the completed poll including weightings by actual vote tallies."

Again, that's a convenient interpretation for your "position"; but not very applicable in this unusual situation.

"Citing other polls which may not (and in some cases definitely were not) designed the same tells us nothing about THIS poll."

WOW! So ya think the Germans, and all those other countries are so much better at designing exit polls? Since it can be done by so many other countries, wouldn't it be incredibly stupid for us to fall short on this? C'mon! Give us a break!
