37. Exit polling weights responses for party, sex, etc. If they were
getting way more dems than were proportionate to registration, they would know, and factor accordingly.

Also, exit poll procedures call for them to record all the people who decline the poll! These numbers are somewhere in Mr. Mitofsky's desk drawer, and he could pull them out if they really proved that the samples were "bad".

But they weren't, and he won't.
