40. the MoE within individual counties?
The problem is, you are making assertions without an iota of support. If you were to spell out your mathematical reasoning, we could all see whether it made any sense, or why it doesn't.

50,000 votes statewide is less than 1% of the votes. That's within the statewide MOE. It's likely that the exit polls could have detected large spoilage in individual precincts, not that there was any need to do that. It's less likely that the exit polls could be used to estimate the spoilage, not that there was any need to do that either.
