16. sure, there is renewed caution in interpretation
Doesn't mean they don't use them -- they were in evidence in the primaries, too -- but the networks were very cautious about their calls. Even in 2004 they were very cautious, in part because the exit pollsters set up a conference call on election day afternoon to warn that in many cases they didn't trust their own numbers.

As you know, I don't think that anyone rigged the exit polls, although of course I can't prove it. I just think they were wrong.
