80. Yeah...
...they left out all those working poor and minority voters who have to vote at the end of the day because they CAN'T AFFORD to lose work (paid by the hour), and have lousy jobs or lousy bosses, or they have to get the kids off to school in the morning, then go to work, then vote; or have to pick up the kids after school and feed them and see about babysitters after working the night shift, and then have to go vote instead of sleep; or the shits who run their state elections shorted them on voting machines or the number of precincts and made them stand in line for 10 hours, or drive 30 miles to maybe find their polling place (unless election officials gave them the wrong information), or ran to the polling place late in the day after they found out that Republican-distributed flyers were WRONG that they had two days to vote....

...that's who votes late in the day. And THEY didn't get "exit polled."
