10. O RLY?
You have evidence that for decades, exit polls have been "universally used by International election monitoring organizations to determine if the election was being manipulated fraudulently"?

Avoid exit polls, which are unreliable in a climate of suspicion and which will create a negative atmosphere if the voters feel they are being watched.

Carter Center, Elections in Mexico: Third Report, August 1994

I could keep going (for instance, did you know that the OSCE report on Ukraine 2004 doesn't mention the exit polls at all?).
