14. then don't
I don't know your agenda, either. I can only point out shoddy argumentation. And an extrapolation about big-city turnout and vote shares based on a few dozen exit poll precincts nationwide, when the sample isn't designed for that purpose, is nothing if not shoddy. If you don't know this, you should. If there are particular counts you are suspicious of, that would give us some substance to discuss. I'm not going to give deference to arguments that don't merit deference. If you think that complaining that the pollsters aren't "credible" supports your analysis, the burden is on you. If you simply aren't interested in analysis, that's your privilege.

For what it's worth, if you want the networks to investigate in real-time election forensics, then it seems to me that you should lobby them, not the pollsters. But if you are going to claim that researchers would obtain "close to 100%" participation, then that claim obviously would benefit from direct evidence. Has any parallel election or exit poll come close to 100% participation? Assuming you are right that "people want to get things straightened out," that does not appear to be on point.
