Everyone Needs To Simmer Down About Virginia, Exit Polls


Let’s all calm down. : I know a few conservative may have started to sweat after seeing Drudge’s headline showing “boom” for Obama in the early exit polls. : However, Ace of Spades reminds us that in 2004, John Kerry led in the exit polls by nine.

Remember, the: 2004 exits had Kerry winning nationally 51-48.: Actual result? Pretty much the opposite of that. Bush won by just under three points.

Thus, a nearly +6 bias in favor of Democrats.

You can also ignore the sub-toplines in the exits, for the exact same reason. They’re saying on CNN this is the first election in which Hispanics make up 10% of the voting population. Again –: self-selected.D+6. More whites than anyone else avoiding the sociology major.

The exits are, through-and-through, faulty and a big waste of your time.

I say again: Random-digit-dial polls are more accurate.

Kerry, at the end of the night, lost the state — and the election.
