56. "where votes were missing in the returns"
OK, help me out here -- are we talking about exit polls at all? Because, I'm sure you're aware, the returns are not exit polls.

Honestly, I'm flummoxed.

As long as we're talking about some VNS guy, can you remember what network he was on and roughly what time of night? Then I might be able to judge relevance.

"As to your question, I would think this would not affect the exit poll results at all, as the two things are completely unrelated, as was shown on election night in 2000."

Let me try it this way: how would it affect the relationship between the exit poll results and the official returns? How, if at all, would the exit polls reveal the number of spoiled ballots?
