111. Says who?
I've got a quote from you somewhere to the effect that you have worked for exit-poll organizations and been paid for doing so. Right? Do I really need to go dig it up?

So, given that exit-polls generate income for the workers employed, and that the bill in 2004 was @ $10 million for the work, (paid for by the networks who used the polls) it seems rather odd that any employee of the pollsters would so dastardly discount their efforts. Even when, for example, the most recent exit polls in the primaries were used by the same networks to call elections as soon as polls closed.

You see why I have such a problem accepting your statements as truths?
