76. Exit polls are no good?!?!?!?
How many times have we heard the networks declare: "According to exit polls, so and so won"?

Tell Mr. Hand, he needs to go tell the networks that the exit polls, on which they spend millions of dollars, is wasted money. Heh.

Actually, exit polls are quite accurate. Sure, they miss a few votes here and there, but the evidence is that exit polls are a science that is more successful than, shall we say, rocket science. Why someone would carry on the way Hand does, dissing exit polls as "not to be trusted", when the networks do trust exit polls, is truly a wonder.
