They are going to be useless. If they show Romney up big, so did they show Kerry up big in 2004.

If they show Obama up big, so did they show Kerry up big in 2004.

Worth about as much as a bucket of spit to me.

Even then they will be quarantined. For how long I have not been able to confirm.

Recollection is that Matt Drudge had released exit data prior to the embargoed time in the past. The rules by the consortium were changed and I -suspect- that there are some pretty stiff penalties in there for early release.

Also, the organizations have reduced the number of states in which they will conduct early polling.

If they were looking good for Barky it would be leaking out and all over CNN and MSNBC.

Hard to imagine that the quarantined folks would not get out numbers to someone...I doubt there is a strip search.

Excuse me as I go to the bathroom...something along those lines?

Hey prisoners swallow balloons to bring drugs in to prison, so maybe something along those lines, why not just a cell phone in pocket

The media is using a new voter suppression tactic: They are using the voter registration as the tally for how they voted. But yesterdays Ras Poll says it all:

Romney: 48

Obama: 48

Of the people interviewed, 56% identified as democrat, 37% identified as republican, and the rest independents. It sees that many democrats are voting for Romney. So the voter registration thing isn’t working for them either

No need for exit polls this early, besides they aren’t done being “cooked” yet.

Exit polls are needed by 5 PM ET. Why? Because that’s when Republicans (i.e., ‘workers’) leave work and the media needs to have demoralizing exit polls ready to go, just like 2000, 2004 and 2008.

Then blast them all over the airwaves, crowing about a Bonzo re-election landslide — and Rats gaining Senate and House seats too — so that the Republicans just leaving work get depressed and go home instead of voting.

I recall that many of those exit polls were just about perfectly timed in 2008, and they sure got the job done. Not by themselves, but they helped a lot.

Correct. The 2004 fiasco is what stopped it.

You got that right. It would be leaking like a sieve. Who would hold CNN & MSNBC accountable? Nobody.

They're being kept in a #2 mayonnaise jar on Funk and Wagnall's porch until 6 PM so that the numbers can be sufficiently marinated!

The DEMs don’t want the exit polls released. They want their “apparent” lead in the early voting to be in the news all morning and afternoon.

That is the point I am trying to make.. fact the numbers are not leaking seems to imply they aren’t looking good for O.

I can see zero reason for exit polling to be released befoe ALL voting is finished across America. There isn’t a positive benefit as a result of the release of exit polling results

News reporters, most of them liberal, must be covering voting sites all over the country. If they’re seeing large, enthusiastic turn-outs in Democratic districts, we’d be hearing about it by now.

In fact, we’d probably be seeing live TV coverage of teeming Democratic voting sites, if there were such things, with reporters standing in front of them like Geraldo Rivera standing in front of a beach excitedly describing a hurricane.

The silence so far is reassuring.

The stock market since 2 pm is showing that a lot of people think Romney is going to win. Higher coal stocks, energy stocks, defense company stocks. I wouldn’t be surprised if market makers have access to early numbers.

Actually, Mr. “Kenneth, what’s the frequency?” has already gone on-record that today is going to be a very good day for Romney.

I don’t care how much they have sequestored them, I can assure you folks on WS and the Campaigns have gotten the numbers within minutes of them being compiled.

I don’t like it when they give out exit poll numbers
they make it sound like they are the actual vote counts.
They should wait until the polls close I think.
Actually I am pretty sick of the polls to be honest.

I am not arguing the appropriatness or the accurracy of exit polling, that’s a completely different discussion.

What I am pointing out is that NOTHING is out there... I know they are trying to lock these down, but does anyone really think if they were indicating great things for Obama that they wouldn’t somehow be leaking?

I think personally think the true disaster that is going to be this election for democrats is now known... R v D turnout will indeed be R+3 or 4... and a route is coming.

The Exit Polls could be inaccurate like 2004, they could be worthless... but the fact NOTHING has leaked to the public seems to imply to me it doesn’t bode well for the Dems. Lets face it if the MSM or the O Campaign could leak them and help themselves look good, or depress the R turnout they indeed would do it in a heartbeat.

There is for the lib media, IF it doesn't go their way. It lets them recover from the initial shock, hiding the best stupid facial expressions and comments that result from coming to grips with an evil R win, without displaying them on air for the pleasure of their enemies.

The networks have to make it look close. That’s just show business.

Win or lose, it's in the MSM's best interest to suppress R turnout regardless. Even if O loses, they don't want any piling on. An even bigger win margin makes it look like a blowout and complete repudiation of the hard left agenda that the state run media so loves.
