50,000 votes would have been well within the exit poll's margin of error -- as I think you know. So what on earth are you trying to say? The "exact number of spoiled ballots in Palm Beach and Duvall counties"? That isn't mathematics, it's hokum. Who needs hokum?

(VNS wasn't disbanded until after 2002.)

I really don't mind if people want to experiment with exit polls -- although I worry about the distraction from other more pressing tasks -- but I'd like the rhetoric to be rationally defensible.
