13. No, I live deep in the woods with dial-up internet service only.

I cannot watch web-streamed videos as a result. But I can read four page reviews of the film, which I hope you did. I now have read two reviews of the film, neither of which mentioned exit polls at all. (In both cases, the reviewers actually watched the entire film.)

You must realize how your fixation for making everything about exit polls gets in the way of conversations about anything else. This thread is just the latest example.

Here's an idea. Why don't we both watch the film in its entirety and then we can post our impressions here. I should have my copy soon (by snail mail) and my guess is that you can watch it on LinkTV right now (or soon). I will try to keep track of how much time is spent discussing exit polls in the film and how pivotal that discussion is for the main premise of the film. You can keep track of how much time is spent on everything else but.

BTW, just because some of us don't want to discuss exit polls with you anymore (four years is quite enough), that doesn't mean that we accept your position. Far from it. I also note that the exit poll industry still exists and that, in about a month, they will again be used to predict the winners of all nationally relevant races before the vote totals are official. For a methodology that is so fraught with peril, error and misinterpretation, it seems to be doing quite well, thank you.
