39. "voluntary withholding"
means conforming to AAPOR ethical guidelines. They don't have permission NOT to keep it under wraps. But like I said, the raw data is released. There are files for each state so you can do state-level analysis. Only the precinct identifiers are missing. You can download it yourself, here

When I get permission to use confidential data for a study, what I can do with it is strictly limited. I can publish my analyses, but must not do so in such away that any respondent can be identified, and I have to carefully secure all material that could identify the respondent. If I did not agree to this I would not get permission from my ethics committee to conduct the study. Same applies for the exit polls.

And I voted Labour at the last election. I have my reasons.
