All Sides Agree – Early Exit Polls Are Crap

Read the MysteryPoller as to why you shouldn’t place any stock in the early exit polls. That said… Kerry supporters here’s the message you should take from the numbers: No need to show up; your vote isn’t needed.

I’m being told that those Wonkette numbers are absolutely, positively not exit poll numbers. They might be results of early voting “exit” polls (i.e. votes cast over the last two weeks), but they do not track at all the exits for votes cast today. That said, I’m told the exits don’t look great for Bush either. Of course, that changes none of the caveats about exit polls already posted below.

Bush 55 51 57 40 48 48 47 48 40 43 49 41

Update 2: These numbers have pretty well been debunked as either heavily slanted towards female voters or just plain fiction. Check The Corner for more real time updates. Drudge is reporting 1% spreads in the battleground states. All numbers except counted votes should be viewed as highly suspect!
